Replace catalytic converter sensors.
Replaced timing chain
Replaced timing chain.
motor mounts had failed and needed replacing
Dealer replaced both engine mounts
Timing chain was rubbing on guides. Dealer suggested replacing guides, and at the same time the timing chain. Kept car for 3 days, but gave me a new loaner. Repair successful and completely satisfactory.
Upper radiator hose leaking; hose replaced.
Have had a rattling noise since 35,000 miles (Nissan dealers have proved unhelpful). Upon removing the cover to replace the main tensioner, it was determined that an internal gasket had failed thus restricting oil flow. Inner timing cover was replaced.
