Nissan Maxima Problem Report
Nissan Maxima 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.

I bought this maxima real cheap through a friend of a friend. Went for about a10 mile drive and the oil light started flashing and heard the timing chain slapping loudly.i drove it home, took the front valve cover off and i couldn't believe what i saw.there was so much sludge in there!!! Unbelievable the car still runs good as out does. gonnaclean it out best i can,drop the oil pan and clean the screen,replace the tensioners and guides,and hope for the best!! - Visitor
