my ga16de rolled 212k miles the other day and it hit its limits. l8ly i have ben having a problem with my car. i thought the problem was detination cause thats what it sounded like but it wasnt really loud. well l8ly it was getting louder and louder and from a tap sound to a knocking sound. well i was taking a curve and i went to down shift and let the rpms drop and it died. i pulled over started it up again it died again wouldnt hold idle. so i started it up again giving gas you could clearly hear the knocking couldnt miss it was getting louder than my stereo. i dove it some ways till i was down the street from a buddy of mines house. well i came to a stop sign mashed the gass and got it to about 5krpm or so and hit 2nd then the car started to shake real bad and as i was 2 houses away from my friends house it died and never started again. first i thought it was bent valve but it then started sounding like piston slap. getting it towed to my house and ripping it apart to see the damage. hopefully getting a new motor will inform

Sorry to hear... maybe you just need another timing chain kit. Good Luck ! It's a nice car... if you take good care of her, she'll take care of you :)

well funny thing about the timing i recently did a chain tensioner job and i replaced the upper tensioner and since the idler sprocket was damaged i replaced it too but didnt have enough for any of the chains and they didnt look bad. well i matched all the colors up and all the links counted out fine so it was timed right ,but when i got a timing light to advance my timing a few days ago none of the marks on my pulley showed up with the gun. and its a really good gun by snapon so theres no telling what i will find under the valve covers and into the block

will keep updated

well there's your problem... you advanced your timing and you drove it like that for a while... I'd be amazed if there's any valve left in original shape... I refuse to advance timing over 10 BTDC I know my engine wouldn't take it well.

Sorry to hear that. Let us know what you find under the valve cover. Atleast ya didn't hear a "boom". But I'm definately thinking it's timing related. I'm currently afraid to drive my 97 Sentra cuz I started it up just to move it cuz I wanted to park my 93 Sentra where it was cuz that was the better spot and I'm pretty sure I'm hearing a knock. I've tried to time the bitch so many times that I've decided that the next time it gets timed will be at the Nissan dealership cuz I'm through with messing with it. Strange thing is there is no CEL which the last time the timing was f'd up I got a flashing CEL. Oh well. I'm probably gonna replace the motor and sell it. Sounds like you might be in for a new motor too. Good luck.
