2000 Nissan Maxima Problems

Timing chain tensioner bleeding off oil pressure
The timing chain tensioner may bleed off oil pressure after the engine is shut down. This can cause a rattling noise when the engine is started cold and a revised timing chain tensioner and guide are available to correct this issue.
