My timing chain noise started about 60k miles. we milked it by frequent oil changes and using synth blend oil. Just had the job done $2500 mechanic says gasket failure caused tensioner to fail due to low oil pressure to the tensioner. poor design ! No way should this fail it should be a recall. You will never see a recall due to the high price I bet it is a $3800 job at the dealer. Cheaper for nissan to fight it.Report it
I had my 2004 Nissan Quest for 1 day before the noise started. Turns out the noise is noticeable on cold starts. Be sure you do a cold start before buying one and then have it checked. Timing chain was bad. 1200.00 repair. Thankfully the dealer I bought it from is standing behind it. CAUTION!!! I don't really understand how this doesn't effect its reliability rating on this site. The dealership that is actually doing the repair says they do this repair all the time.Report it
