Hi,

I'd love help you get this one sorted.

Take a look at this diagram and let me know where you are getting stuck.

I am stuck at the front of the cylinder head where the timing chain connects to it. I can't seem to find where else I need to disconnect any bolts to lift it off the engine block. I'm a girl by the way and doing this alone.
Nissan Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Oh so you need help pulling the head, you have already pulled the intake?

Are the intakes those bars thAT look like mufflers, because if so , I have already detached them from both sides.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The circled items have been removed,it's item1 is stuck on the engine
Nissan Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok cool.

You have pulled all of the head bolts right?

Then you pulled the timing chain?

All of the pulleys are removed, and the motor mount is pulled?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
