Sup fellas ..Quick question (since u guys have all the answers..thanx bye the way)
I have a 1989 240sx and i have done some research on the timing chain and trani. I find that everyone says that you dont have to change the timing chain jst repair the guides to stop the rattling. I sthis true by the way my car has 89k miles.
I read also that Nissan does not recomend repairing the transmission . does that mean you are better off replacing it completely?
So guys whata ya say.

Na, Downunder, we were blessed with the super awesome KA crap..
RAH- i've done many timing chains. i'm sorta an expert. you don't have to replace the chain but it's a good idea. not olny will you replace the guides but you should replace the tensioner. i have a 90 RHS13 with 73958 miles that suffered the complete failure and replaced the whole timing system, including front cover. it's really not that difficult, more of a real pain in the ass. :mad:
the rattling isn't olny from lack of guides, it's also from a slack chain......
take it from me i've done this job many times.
