Nissan Altima Timing Belt Or Timing Chain (1993 - 2021)

All Nissan Altima engines have timing chains from the model years 1993 to 2021. All Nissan Altima engines from 1993 to 2021 are interference.

Scroll down to see specific data for your model year below.

The timing belt (or chain) maintains the proper synchronization between the various engine components in a combustion engine.

If the belt or chain stretches or breaks, it can lead to catastrophic engine damage.

Timing belts have a recommended replacement interval, while timing chains are generally rated for the engines lifetime, although they need to be inspected occasionally.
