Hey all, got my 2002 home from a dealer about a week ago, it needs a timing belt so I am not driving it until the rest of my parts come in. I know my way around engines, vehicles, etc, so im doing that on my own. However, in my "binge learning" about these vehicles i found out that the distributors like to shit out their bearings around 100K. I have 120,000 on mine, so while I am waiting on parts i pulled the distributor and disassembled following the DIY guide. When I got it apart i noticed the bearing "looked" ok but there was slight pulse of resistance when rotating the shaft. Should I proceed? Or wait till issues arise... Im new to Xterras but not nissans in general, wanted to ask the more knowledgeable group! Thanks in advance!!
