timing chain rattling noise coming from passenger side of engine.
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!!
Timing tensioner making tapping sound
timing chain makes noise when you 1st start up the car, and you can hear it while you are driving. nissan want $4000 to fix it
Problem also occurs on 3.5L. Traded in the car. Always had issues with this car. Ran Mobil 1 full synthetic the entire time. Plastic timing guides still wore out.
