    Noise has been going on for 2 weeks or so. Think it would have lasted that long if that was the case? Given the online and here comments about turbo oil line, I'm wondering if that isn't the issue or just the timing chain. Guess if she does chain + oil lines we'll sorta find out assuming the turbo doesn't explode here shortly after the repair.

    Should a timing chain be wearing out at only 100k? The one in my van is on 220k.

    Well I mean it is a POS nissan. Course if we replace, wife is against toyota for no reason other than it's "asian". Of course her family is blind Dodge fans no matter what statistics I show her. (She's wanting to go back to something bigger and I was pushing toyo offerings > a Ford etc)

    Did a quick search on Jukes and the timing chain is a major issue. The turbo is a issue. And if you have a CVT your sitting on a dead car running.
    You can count on replacing the timing chain and the Turbo then having the CVT go out.

    Hopefully you can educate her that not all cars, even within manufactures, let alone from different ones, are created equal.

    This sounds about right. I would get someone you trust to look at it. I'm no nissan expert, but I know that all the cvt's have had issues over the years. Can you pull the intake side off the turbo and see if the compressor wheel has any play? Or get said trustworthy person to?
