2008 Nissan Pathfinder Q&A
2008 Nissan Pathfinder Question: does this vehicle have a timimg belt or a chain?
It's a timing chain-----yes it will last long if you maintain your engine - Action702
4.0l or 5.6l both have timing chains. 3 to be exact.1 primary and 2 camshaft chaines. With Nissan"s in particular if oil changes aren't done at proper intervals and wrong viscosity the primary chain tensioner goes bad causing excessive chain slack. Very costly. Depending on shop labor $800-$1000. Parts $300-$400 - Mobile Tek
