Jake :

hi there, thanks for the question

Jake :

these engines are interferenec engines

Jake :

but that does not neccessarily mean there was damage when the chain broke

Jake :

damage is certainly more likely if the chain broke while driving versus at an idle

Jake :

best thing to do is set the new chain and do a compression test or remove the head and check the valves before installing the new chain

Jake :

if you need anything else just let me know

Jake :

if not please just remember to leave a kind rating

Jake :

thanks

reply here with further questions if needed.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

is it belt or chain?

Expert:  Jake replied 3 years ago.

yours is fitted with a belt.

 

saying chain is habitual as about 90% of all Nissan engines use chains, versus belt.

 

It's kind of like the fact that we still refer to refrigerant as freon.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i think its a 2.oo

Expert:  Jake replied 3 years ago.
ok yes, that's a belt.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
