Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora

Open Question

Timing belt/chain 4.0 aurora

Im sorry, but i'm afraid you have misunderstood, i believe the 4.0 engine has a timing chain set-up, not a belt and is not serviceable under routine maint. only if mechanical problems arise. do you mean the accessory drive belt? once again, sorry, didnt mean to sound like a wiseguy! a retraction would be appreciated.

SOURCE: my 83 cutlass supreme check engine light on

sounds like could be a carb providing an excessive amount of fuel any signs of black smoke from exhaust ), overdue need of spark plugs, or if everything proves ok, a faulty ox sensor

SOURCE: service engine soon light

Yes, it means it needs its routine periodic service. Not performing maintenance will inevitably lead to more expense.

Does the engine of a 2001 oldsmobile aurora 4.0 have to be pulled to replace the timing chain

No you do not need to replace pull the engine. Replacing this chain takes many special tools, I would suggest if you can afford it to avoid trying to do this at home, it is a very difficult job even for a professioanl. You will need a factory service manual to get all set up right.

Does 2007 altima 3.5 have a chain or timing belt

After 2002 Altima offers two types of engine: the new 4 cylinder 2.5 L QR model engine which is fairly powerful (175 horsepower) and, I believe, one of the best engine in its class the 3.5L V6 VQ model engine with 240 horsepower. The same V6 model as in in the Nissan Maxima, Pathfinder and Murano.
Both engines feature continuously variable valve timing using a silent chain instead of timing belt. Throttle cable is gone - the throttle operates electronically by wire based on gas pedal sensor readings. This design provides smoother transmission shifting and lower emission.
The 2007 Nissan Altima 3.5L Sedan, has a Timing Chain, and an Ignition Coil Pack. NO DISTRIBUTOR.

How do i set the timing on my s 80 volvo 5 cyl took off head replaced gasket and timing gears moved im afraid to put the belt back on in fear the cams are not in the correct place and some real damage...

They have marks on them and they have to be set to the number one cylinder in the compression stroke and the two marks must face each other and when putting on the timing chain or belt always take the play out of the cams with two closed end sockets or the rented alignment tool.

Replacing water pump on 98 grand am

Rates vary, so just call and ask. I think the engines are 2.3,2.4;3.1 and 3.3 in size. If your engine is one of these, they take timing chains instead of belts. But maybe you have something else. You might want to check that. I would guess that it would be more than $500., maybe even twice that from some people... Rick
