a search would bring you to the conclusion that your car has a timing chain :)

1.6l have one timing chain. the bigger engines have two.

Don't spread misinformation like that. The GA16DE has two timing chains. No other motor in the Nissan family line has that kind of setup (at least the ones from '91 and up). The other motors either having a timing chain or a timing belt.

Here is a diagram of the GA16DE timing chains from the FSM:



The bottom chain drives an idler sprocket which drives the upper chain. Since the block is narrower than the spacing between the cams, the bottom chain fits in the block, and the upper chain goes to the cam sprockets in the head.
