Ive seen those nissan engines break, and it isnt cheap specifically the 2.5 I-4 and the 3.5 v-6. I think the 3.0 was a better engine for them.
OMG, I think we'd get along just fine...LMAO
Yeah I have seen timming chain tensioners break, I have seen a few head gaskets go out.... Boy oh boy when they break they are a disaster to repair.... When that happens you might just as well replace the engine or go with a full rebuild because by the time you get the head off there is pretty much nothing left except the block... The oil pan, oil pan spacer, and the front of the engine has to go... Its crazy...
And I agree I feel the 3.0 was a better engine...
we thought the quad 4'* were bad untill we played with a couple of the 2.4-2.5 I-4'*...
