Question about 1998 Nissan Frontier
I've got a 1998 XE King Cab, 2WD drive with the 2.4L engine. 161K miles. Hint of an oil leak, may be a rear main seal. Drivable and dependable, but its days are limited. Considering just dropping another engine in - I'm horribly frugal, and so I'd rather just replace the engine / tranny than get another vehicle, if the numbers work out. Can do a reguild myself if necesary, but would rather outsource the actual installation. Would this be a waste of time and money? Suggestions?
Just a guess, but I would say this truck ran low on oil at one time. The result is the crank bearings took a beating. You may get away with just replacing the bearings and a rear seal. This engine is amost 'bullet-proof''! Frankster016
