First time on here, this Forum site. We have a 17 plate 1.2 engine n 415734A Auto with 35K on the clock, with a suspected timing chain issue.

The car is not noisy on idle, but a distinct rattling noise under acceleration. We are Stockport, Cheshire based, our concern is where to take the vehicle, due to problems with main dealers in the local area and from where we purchased the vehicle.

None of our vehicles will ever be going to Nissan Main Dealer again, we would rather take our car to someone who has experience of working on this issue with this vehicle. Obviously we all know damage that can occur due to cam belts and chains on vehicles.

Cannot believe that Nissan have not recalled these due to timing chain issues, our vehicle has no recalls listed .

Can anyone offer us any assistance please.

If you are on Facebook post this on the Nissan Pulsar C13 Owners Club. Most people who were on here now reside on that group.

Hi I am looking to buy a 2016 1.5dci pulsar and was at a dealership today. When I asked the question regarding has the timing belt been replaced they replied its a timing chain not a belt, when my research had stated that in fact timing belts were fitted to the 1.5dci engine. I left the dealership without buying the car. Can anyone confirm if any of the 1.5dci engines were fitted with a timing chain.
