What is it because that a 2002 Sentra GXE? Btw, its an interference engine, right? Is over there a means to differentiate an OEM timing belt indigenous the factory and also an aftermarket one, since I"m not certain if it has ever before been changed in my car. Its in ~ 120,000 kms now.

Its more than likely that a timing chain will certainly fail between 100K and also 200K. Inquiry is as soon as will your"s fail. Its most likely that the chain will get noisy prior to it goes. Mine Toyota"s chain failed in ~ 82K, ns believe. It was noisy around 5K before that. I just passed the of together the engine obtaining a bit looser. even though that is an interference engine, it damaged as it idled and so there to be no damage-amazingly.
or it can go anytime choose the one in my 240sx did and destroy the tensioner, stress rod, guide plate, idle gear, and also bottom crank gear....lol, yet at least the ka24de no interferance....lol

There is no a maintenece schedule for timing chains or tensioners. The chains normally last the lifetime of the engine.
