Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 168200 miles
Hi, I just had my waterpump replaced on my 1996 maxima because it was leaking very bad. It was a local shop that charged me $400 labor because it was a 5-hour job and they said they would have to loosen the timing chain. Well the car was fixed but after driving about 200 miles, I felt the car losing power on the highway and it eventually died within the next 30 seconds. I tried to start it again but it sounded like the engine wasn't turning. There was a little smoke coming out by the timing chain cover. So I just want to know how I can diagnose the engine. Where is the crankshaft bolt and how do I turn it? Or any other help is appreciated. Or is it a timing chain issue?
have the same problem?
