Stretched chain ?!?!?!?!!!
Chain is on the petrol engine, belt on the diesel engine.
Never heard of a chain stretching personally.
Get another reading done and if it's the same code i would go with it.

What code was it?
If P0340 CMP SENSOR then it is a fault with the sensor or wiring,
I'd expect P0011 IVT CONTROL with a stretched chain as it can't set the inlet timing correctly.


[If you look online, there is a P0016 code for camshaft & crankshaft position not matching, but Nissan don't list this one- you get it on VWs, VW also list P0341 as a signal fault with the cam sensor]

Chains don't actually stretch- they wear at the pins and this causes them to elongate (which has the same result).
