If it has DOHC ist has two chains. The tensioners do wear out. Will need to have it looked at around 150K. Pull the valve cover off and you can see the top chain and sprockets. Inspect for sprocket wear (or broken teeth) and chain tension. If you drive like granny, you might get to 200K or further. If the chains do need replaced, do the water pump at the same time. Cost at Nissan is $1500. to $2000.

I own this car, and I can say confidently that it has a timing chain instead of a belt. I believe you do not need to change the chain at any point...... it is more a matter of maintenance and repair to worn guides and tensioners.

The timing chain doesn't really have a maintenance period. They don't have a habit of breaking or stretching. Timing belts on some vehicles do have a recomended replacement period. Locate your local NTB, Firestone, or Sears for the maintenance schedule.

Timing belt


This Nissan should have a timing chain instead of a timing belt. I suggest taking it to a shop and letting a professional look at it. I have had a 98sx chain slip 180 degrees often.

Replace timng belt


well maybe there was some mis-communication there , nissan stopped using timing belts in sentra's and actually most all models in 2000 , maybe they were telling you that your serpentine belt needed changed ? but to answer your question , you do not have a timing belt in your 2002 nissan sentra . its a chain . thanks
