2000 Nissan Maxima Question: changing fluids and timing belt

The good news is that your Maxima doesn't have a timing belt, it has a timing chain, and it doesn't need regular servicing. They are only replaced if they are worn out.
Every 30,000 miles is a good time to replace both the engine coolant and the transmission fluid and the transmission filter.
