Customer Question

I have heard there are timing chain problems with the Nissan Sentra 1.8s. Surfing to see if that is true.

Hello. I am unaware of any common timing chain problems with this engine, and I am seeing no TSBs for it either. What are the problems that you have heard of with the 1.8 engine?

Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

The only think I can think of would be a result of improper maintenance wearing down the timing chain guides prematurely.

Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

I am going to turn this question over to a certified Nissan technician. He specializes in Nissans, and will be able to advise you best with your purchase.

I have plenty of information on these cars than I can share with you. First did you notice a long crank time when first started?
