Nothing for cambelt as it doesn't have one.

Spark plugs vary depending on year of car. Nissan way too expensive. Traders on here approx 60-100 quid plus 2hrs labour approx at a local garage.

I would also recommend that you put up an intro in the intro section and let people know a bit about you, your car(a pic maybe) and a rough location.

People will be able to welcome you and help you with more accurate advice about where to go and where to buy from etc

Don't beat yourself up, I asked my local Nissan dealer once for a price on a cambelt change on a 350 and they came back with a quote :scare:

I was only testing them out as I needed a service, obviously I didn't go there :lol:

I miss the old Neil too :byebye: this one is all friendly and nice :thumbsdown:

It has a timing chain.

Oil filter, decent oil, air filter, sparkplugs.

Not necessary but I would do, gearbox oil and molyslip additive, diff fluid

Zmanalex supplies genuine Nissan stuff. Not recommended to use aftermarket stuff as it doesnt go well in ye zed.

Thanks foor the heads up Neil :thumbs:

Leosille, the 350Z VQ35DE Engine has a maintenance free drive chain.

The only belts are these ones, which are on the front of the engine:
