I have an 03 Murano SL, awd with 3.5 Trouble code popped up indicating timing is off on cam bank 1 and cam bank 2. My question is: What is the fix???
Knowing the exact code would be helpful for me to help answer your question.
Usually when this code comes up it could be telling you one of two things. The first is that the sensor or related wiring may be faulty.
The other is the timing chain may have stretched or slipped a tooth causing the valve timing to be off setting the code.
Having the car checked by your local professional mechanic would be a good idea as soon as possible before any damage to the engine can occur.
This is a service bulletin I found on the Alldata information website that may be helpful.

The first steps in the complete diagnostic are to make sure the:
