My 1995 Nissan Pickup - Footage After Replacing Timing Chain - Maineyak
At 153k miles, I decided to replace a worn timing chain, water pump, thermostat, seals, gaskets, and fluids. I wanted to do an after video once the job was completed. This has been the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned, since I bought it 4 years ago with 88k miles. Most of these trucks rust out quickly in Maine, however, this one came from Atlanta, Georgia. It is now starting to finally accumulate some mild rust, mostly from the salted roads during the winter months. This truck is such a great all purpose daily driver for me, and routine maintenance keeps it going strong!
