    This one definitely deserves a sacrifice to the algorithm gods, what a headache man. Stay strong Ray

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike L says:

    This is why nobody wants to change the timing belt. This service costs more than the truck is worth.
    Our 2010 Murano has 111k miles and will need a belt change soon. I’m thinking about just getting rid of it instead…., or pulling the motor and working outside the vehicle.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Aldredge says:

    Situation where you get the test first then the lesson!

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars daanski82 says:

    Dude, DUDE…. HOW in the forking Hell are you know how to reassemble all this. I guess if it was me, I WOULD end up with 1 bold and a washer……..
    please show us how you start from here?

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fed Up says:

    Ray you do a great job, but this is why I will not own a Nissan I'll stick with my Toyota Thanks 🙂

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Mcnair says:

    Just curious as to why you didn't just hook the seal out in place and put new seal in. That's the way I've always done it and I did my apprenticeship in the 70's just retired

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars moparvaliant says:

    I'm sure the engineers that designed Satan's vehicle at Nissan don't work there anymore

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Ralph says:

    G'day Ray, have you ever thought of getting an ultra sonic cleaner for the shop, I use mine every chance I can for cleaning most engine components and parts, great for most things.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars moparvaliant says:

    How it's made vehicle made in a factory. How its disassembled with ray

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars moparvaliant says:

    This is the worse vehicle I have ever seen. I would've given up. You have lots of patience. The vehicle is like a gigantic rabbit hole

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thomas lyon says:

    I wonder if you should look at a couple rod bearing’s wile your down there? LOL,just kidding.😅

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chad delong says:

    Engineers will go past 3 virgins to screw a mechanic as shown in this job 🫡💯

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray Shideler says:

    I admire your patience and your willingness to post even when things don't go as expected. I wouldn't think that oil pump would normally need to come out for this job, but maybe I misunderstood something. You talked about breaking a seal but I'm not sure If u meant the shaft seal or the seal around the oil pump itself. If you inadvertently broke the seal around the pump, I understand why everything had to come apart.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Green says:

    That has to be the biggest P.I.T.A. water pump R&R I've ever seen! I'm jus' glad it's you doin' it and not me.
    Edit: HOLY $#!t, what a total P.I.T.A. I would not be handling the frustration nearly as well as you seem to be.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pure Onyx says:

    Another great video . In my imaginary mind I always picture everything comes out super easy for professional mechanics not realizing you guys run into problems with rust and other issues too that can be a headache. Great video !!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Adams says:

    I felt for you since part 1 because I saw you didn't drop the oil pan. My first time doing that job, I ran into the same problem. Sometimes its best to bite the bullet and read the guide first. I know that costs time, but sometimes you just have to.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam Tom says:

    That was intense, glad I didn't buy one of them kind of SUV's. Boy is that motor a little on the ugly dirty side, guess that is what happens when you have an oil leak that gets away from you. Okay I have had one get away from me on my 95 Toy 4runner valve cover gasket.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Perry says:

    Damn, Ray. I hope this isn’t a book hours job. Eeesh! 😂

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave R says:

    Wow I’m surprised you didn’t need to remove the rear light globes for this seal.. Super design! 😳🤬

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RaithUK says:

    Wow escalation madness but good on ya for sticking with it dude.. gives me faith in mechanics seeing how far some will go..

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gaz ferg says:

    that was murphys law,if anything can wrong,it will.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles G. says:

    So you want to be a mechanic do ya? LMAO

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 8 8 says:

    would it have been easier to replace the water pump by pulling the engine

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vern K says:

    I wouldn't put it as much as getting screwed on a timing belt job but more of to many undid screws, screwing you into a oil pump seal job, message me next time I'm fluent in VG, VE, VQ and SR as a Nissan nerd

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars S Fnnll says:

    Don't ya just love finding out the part that the rest of the car was built around? Way back when I found out that an "01 Nissan Sentra was a pain to maintain, starting with having to get a thin wall 12 point socket for the spark plugs. A few of your vids have born this out.
    Best wishes in the new venture, love seeing wife unit and kids around. Kinda brings in the personal side.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay B says:

    I bet this will be a $800 timing belt replacement 🤔

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wesley Fahlstrom says:

    Ouch! That really turned into a complicated, integrated mess.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Who's yo Daddy? says:

    I would've given up a long time ago 🤣

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Perry Williams says:

    Nissan sucks.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed Gentle says:

    Honest I was only kidding when I said to replaces timing belt remove engine first.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vern K says:

    shiiit should have seen the VG I had to weld the key hole with the engine in place due to rolled key on the crank, not a shim a guide tapered on one side, hope that oil pump doesn't leak since you took out way more bolts than you needed for the water pump

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Rock-It Saunders says:

    NISSAN = Nutty Idiotic Stupid Silly Annoying Nonsense

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vern K says:

    marks reading from top left to the right 11-1- 5 o-clock decent belts will have marks, crank pulley doesn't come off drill and tap and puller so you don't damage the rear belt guide, also that's a gray course 3m not even a red medium let alone a fine green

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gumby says:

    The worst oil pan setup of any engine, but they were built while Nissan was on Strike and they hired temp workers.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gumby says:

    I hate those 3.3 Nissan engines, I refuse to work on them anymore, you can't pay me enough.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars usernames reprise says:

    Ever heard of a thing called a three legged gear puller ?

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars cumbrianmale says:

    Almost be easier to take the engine out. Crazy amount of work to change the timing belt and water pump

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars VidelicetMoi says:

    Loving the detail of work performed

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SluggO says:

    Note to self: NEVER buy a Nissan Pathfinder 3.3

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex D. Rodriguez says:

    This again shows the difference between a pro and an amateur wrencher. I would have walked away and left the car up in the air till I could figure out the rest, which could be a long time.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven Baker says:

    This things never going back together correctly. Ray just ain't an engine guy!
