Yea, it could be a problem. I wanna say it's 105k or 5 years but I need to check that.

BTW, welcome to CX! Go post up an intro in the new member section!

I'd do it before I break 100k.
Right now, mine is 2001 and just over 75k miles and no problems as of right now.
Planning on replacing timing belt within the year.

Ouch! That is bad, bad, bad...........................


And, a belt missing the cogs like that on an interference fit engine like the Xterra will get you valves like this:

My Xterra has 72k miles on it, and it was put into service in March 2004 (when the original owner bought it). So I plan to get my timing belt and water pump job done this coming Spring or Summer; just to be on the safe side. I'm not too positive about the "5 year" thing, but I know it's 105,000 miles or before that it should be changed along with the water pump. So I'm just going to do it this Spring/Summer regardless of the mileage. Might as well right? It can't hurt anything, and it helps me avoid an unexpected valve workover like the one pictured above.
