I wasn't actually told if my model (Nissan Juke. Acenta 1.6 & 13 reg) has a belt or chain; which was what I wanted to know. As for the recall, I'm in the UK, did the recall include UK models?

Timing chains are supposed to last the lifetime of the engine, but that’s never the case most of the time as it depends on the quality of the chain and the maintenance regimen of the owner. Maybe they genuinely last the lifetime of the engine with a Toyota, but they generally start to wear out at ~100k miles if properly maintained. Part of the problem with the timing chains is these are Renault Nissans and they are nowhere near as reliable as the ones from the 90’s that predate the partnership. Nissan engines are almost all interfere designs (better power output, but you lose the engine if the belt/chain breaks), but you can confirm that with the engine code if you want to know for sure - however I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s interference.

The 2011-13 MR16DDT Juke has known timing chain issues, so if you want to avoid *any* issues, get it changed at your expense. However, the VIN will give you a definitive answer. You usually also find an associated TSB with such a flaw (in the US you can find this with your VIN number). If the engine has been replaced, there is no way to be sure without just getting it done. The HR16DE isn’t affected. If you hear about the VR38DETT, this only applies to the Nismo Juke.

In general, most timing chain engines are interference designs. If the chain breaks this design usually ends up damaging the block and pistons, totaling the engine out and making replacement your only viable option. It MUST be replaced when it shows early failure symptoms to avoid destroying the engine.

Nissan Jukes generally have a turbocharged 1.6 Litter engine that uses a timing chain. Some of the engines (2011 - 2013) contained a defective timing chain that was covered by a Nissan factory recall. If you call Nissan with your VIN number they will tell you if yours contains the defective chain. Chain replacement for those not on the recall will vary depending on maintenance and driving conditions. A Nissan dealership will diagnose the amount of wear on the chain by listening for a pronounced, distinct rattle from the front of the engine. Listen to your engine and don’t take chances. If you hear something weird get it in.  If the chain breaks it will destroy the engine.

If it is actually a timing chain and not a belt; then possibly never. Timing chains last many hundreds of thousands of Km's (Miles). They should have an automatic tensioner and slippers that will need to be replaced at certain intervals. If you have your original service book it will tell you when to change the timing chain/belt.

Update: on the 2011-13 year models there is a recall for timing chains, for a free fix. Due to a faulty component. Book your vehicle in to a dealership and ask them to check it for all recall campaigns. If any are required they should be fixed free by a dealer.

My sentiments exactly. My 1.6 turbo sport nissan juke has done 38.000 miles. Customer service were lovely, thought I had a case for a repair on my faulty timing chain! Then when I spoke to a guy named Benjamin from head office. He basically patronised me thinking I didn't know anything about timing chains. When I stated that they should last at least 100.000 miles or a lifetime of the car. He stated there was nothing he could do from nissan. He also stated if it hadn't got full service history they wouldn't look at it either! It has 5yrs out of 9 yrs I told him. I stated it didn't need servicing every year due to low mileage. But still the wouldn't help me. I have a disability where I'm in chronic pain 24/7 and stress makes my pain intensify. I now have to pay £1000 to get it fixed by a garage. I think it's disgusting due to the amount that have been recalled back. I'm sure my car should of been one of them too! I have no faith in Nissan now whatsoever! I don't think I will be recommendin them again!

all cars will have a mileage/time interval. The nissan juke service interval is every 12 months or 15000 km. Even though you cover low mileage the car still requires a service every year.

and if you put your registration in on here https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/?_g... you can see if your vehicle is up for recall.
