So your vehicle is within the 2011 to 2013 range of Jukes that were to be recalled. Did you buy it new from the Nissan Dealer? Did you check with the dealer if the voluntary recall was sent out i9n 2014?

I am dealing with this same
I am dealing with this same problem. According to Nissan the timing chain was
replaced in 2014. Yet, here I am looking at replacing the timing chain and
front casing of the engine because the problem occurred. It seems the recall
fix was temporary. I only noticed this issue when we failed to accelerate
while going through an intersection. It is definitely an issue that warrants
answers.


Andrea Skaggs. What country do you live in? Having lost power at an intersection is a concern for your safety and could have resulted in a collision with serious injury or death. Did you report this to the Transportation Department Safety Bureau? They won't do anything unless there is injury or death as a result of that timing chain breaking. In Ontario, Canada, the Ministry of Transport already has a file number set up on a similar problem with timing chain on Nissan Juke vehicles, even on manufacturing years after the Voluntary Recall Nissan issued on 2011-2013 Jukes, but it was suspected that even later models had the defective chains installed without Nissan knowing it. Let me know your situation because there may be a class action lawsuit being set up against Nissan on this very issue. Thanks, Joseph Ficker

Hi Everyone I have a Nissan Juke 1.2 Accenta+ 2016 with a mileage of less than 50 000km on the clock. The timing chain has stretched and Nissan claims that it is normal vehicle maintenance. According to their maintenance and service guide the timing chain should be replaced for the first time at 300 000Km. In my opinion, the timing chain stretch prematurely which is in actual fact then a poor quality product from Nissan's side. I have read some articles in other countries how Nissan recalled about 104 000 Nissan Jukes from the 2011 - 2013 modules due to poor quality timing chains (https://www.cars.com/articles/2011-2013-nissan-juke-timing-chain-issue-1420684822420/), (Nissan recalls 104,000 Jukes for timing belts | Torque News.)
My question is, did Nissan really fixed this problem or are we in South Africa running into the same problem that will cost Nissan Juke owners lots of money out of their pockets as Nissan don't want to admit their faults?

Add another 2013 owner with a broken chain. My gf was driving and the far shut off, confirmed timing chain was broken when I saw the cam lobes stationary through the oil fill cap. The car is out of warranty. She's been making payments on a paper weight that hasn't moved since Oct '17. I'm documenting my engine swap on here in another thread. We sourced one locally with 30k from a later 2013 Juke, just a long block. I have to move everything over to the new engine and repairing other things along the way, 120k mi on the car, I"m finding all sorts of fun worn out parts that everyone will run into at some point. I'm doing this solo, no worries on the task at hand but I feel for anyone else who is royally screwed by this without the means or know-how to perform this swap.
Yes, here i am with a 2013 Juke, just turned 90k Miles, brought it to the dealership to see what the rattle was and low and behold, timing chain. Dealership quoted me 12k, yes, 12 thousand for a new motor. and cannot find a used motor to match with my Juke to do a swap. any advice is greatly appreciated

So during the recall campaign did you bring your Juke in to the dealer for servicing?

Bring it to another dealership. Juke engines are very readily available. Sounds like they just don't want to install a used one.
