What caused my 2000 Nissan Quest engine problem?

This engine is definitely beyond repair and needs replacement. I would first shop auto recyclers in your area to find an engine/transaxle with less miles than what your mechanic is offering (100,000 miles is a lot). Hope this helps.

What caused my engine to fail?

I think I would part with it
14 year old nissan/ford combo

It is a van type vehicle & I stay away from them
for safety concerns & lots of failed transaxles

I think the motor failed,but I would gather actual
facts,not the assumed response your mechanic gave you

Do not spend a dime on that vehicle,
too old & many other issues with them

I changed 96 quest 02 sensor, but the car running rough , worse then before ,so I think I have to reset the ECU, the check engine light still on, any body has done anything like this? Please help!,

first of all please check with the car scanner and let me know what is the trouble code ,maybe 02 sensor but l think you better check the fuel pressure or the air leak. for nissan model above 2 litre car it should at least 3.6 bar pressure

Where is the oil filter for my 96 nissan quest

most likely it is on the side of the engine between the engine and the bulkhead
the side away from the front of the car.

you will have to get at it from underneath and remove and engine protection cover that maybe in the way.

I hope this was helpful.

Is the 1995 ford aerostar a good mini van?

There were alot of problems with the 3.8 V6. Overheating and head cracking. You'd be very lucky to find a 95 without the proble. 95-96 were the worst years. May want to consider the Mercury villager. Same as the Nissan Quest.

Nissan Quest 96 Engine running hot

In the fuse/relay box under the hood in front of the battery are 3 fan relays. 1 for low speed, and 2 for high speed. 1 of high speed is back up. check the relays first.
  • Key OFF.
  • Check the 10A RELAYS fuse located in the interior fuse junction panel and the 65A RAD FAN fuse located in the main fuse junction panel. (engine compartment)
pLease rate as fixya if this helps. good luck

I would like to know the posible causes of engine running hot.

was the engine overheating before this repair? and again do u have bubbles in the coolant tank when the engine is running?, this is best checked when the engine is 1st started. I ask because I think u may have a leaking cylinder head gasket, this would account for the overheating still occurring.
