Default Clicking Sound

I really don't know how this works but i have a question and im hoping someone can help me. my 04 maxima is making a clicking sound every time i start my car and it seems to go away as my car warms up, and if i turn it off and back on it starts clicking/knocking again. i was told it might be my timing belt or chain any ideas on what i should do or look for? and is it worth fixing?

Bienvenido. It is almost surely the timing chain. The guides wear out being made of plastic and need replacing. There is a write up here on the forum or you can take it to a mechanic. It is certainly a costly but needed maintenance.

Really depends on how long you plan on keeping it, just like modding your car, if you plan on keeping it long term go nuts, every car is going to have things that need fixing some cheap and some expensive, just really depends on what you want

Default Re: Clicking Sound

Here is how I look at it. If you going to keep it five years or more. Spend the money. The car if maintained will do at least that or more when taken care of. If your making payments and are concerned with the costs, consider what happens if you trade it in and get something else. Chances are you may be upside down on the loan or go upside down on the next vehicle from the start. If its paid off then why jump into another payment. I would personally fix it. There are only two real problems with these car and thats the timing guides and valve body/solenoids. They can be costly but leave you with a great car for quite some time. The choice is yours though. I am sure those guides if making noise for two years though are reaching a point where you need to decide sooner rather than later.

Im still paying my car and already done, New shocks, alternator, right axle, end links, sway bar bushings, rack and pinion and now bought the parts for the timing chain issue. My advise, keep the car, every car have problems, once you take care of that your gonna have a great, powerful car. Other advise, buy the parts from time to time and the pain will be less.
