Would like to know if this model has a timing chain / belt. And what is the time frame to get this replaced ? The cost information would also be great.

1999 Nissan Altima Question: Timing chain / belt
Answer #1Bret Bodas from RepairPal Test Shop, May 07, 2009, 10:47Master
All Nissan Altimas have a timing chain, not a timing belt. The chain does not require servicing unless there is a problem. You can find an estimate for the chain replacement here: http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=2632
