Patrol 2000,

105,000k's

If it were a petrol car, service histroy would tell me the timing belt need chaging every 100,000k's.

What about 3L Turbo Diesels or any diesle engine, do you have to change the timing belts as I do notice in the Gregories there is a self tensioning mechanisum

It a timing chain happens to go, does your 4WD just coast to a halt (be it with a broken chain falpin about) without damaging Pistons, Valves?

Unsure about the patrol, but my 1kzTE 3.0 TD has an interference motor with a timing belt that should be changed every 100k.

I know the 2.2 and 2.4 diesel hylux has to be changed at 100,000Ks.

It could be an expensive way to find out!! The 3.0 has a timing belt as well as the petrol. The 4.2 does not as it is gear driven. You do not say what type of engine you have in your vehicle.

I've got the 3L Turbo Diesel.

But I'm guessing due to the current nature of the replies so far not many people have had it done?

Hi paul,
Your truck (3.0 ltr) does not have a timing belt it has a timing chain and therefore does not require replaceing every 100,000 km. The tensioner is automatic and should not require any owner maintenance. Petrol/diesel does'nt make any differance if motor is BELT drivern, change both 100,000 or service intervals
If you don't have Gregory's manual No.519 I would highly recommend it to you.,

cheers Nino.

If any motor is belt driven its very risky not to change the belt as specified.
Multi valve motors with inclined valves which get crunched by the upcoming piston
& fling stuff thru the head or block are terribly expensive to fix.
My Triotn 2.5td dropped a belt & all stopped but with vertical valves no block or piston damage was done, just the valve gear. Re-co head was about $900
plus 2 new belts & seals & idler pully & labor ended up bit over $2000-.

Paul,
Nissan service and maintenance book says that part of the 100,000 K service is to replace timing belt for camshaft and injection pump.
Mines only done 76000 K but I intend to get it done when the 100,000 K's roll over .

Cheers
Rob

All,

Thanks for the replies.....there seems to be conflicting information

I just spoke with Richard from Traction4 in Artarmon, and Nissan Service, they both confirmed what Nino stated, Patrol 3.0L TD has a Timing chain and does not need replacing.
