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.

Oddly, rather than 100,000 miles, the recommendation for a timing belt change on this vehicle is 105,000 miles

2003 nissan xterra v-6 does it have a timing chain or belt and if it has a belt when does it need to be changed?

It has a timing belt, not a chain. Easy enough to check your owners manual. From memory, belt is to be replaced at about 100,000 miles or 160,000 km give or take.

I have 2000 , nissan quest SE with 87,000 miles according with the manual I should change the timing bell when I reach 105,000 miles- but some mechanic told me I must change right away I am confused?...

He may know something you don't I change the belts every 35 thousand miles it is cheeper for replaceing the belt than it is to do a valve job. Ask the mechanic why he thinks it should be changed and have him show you the reason why, don't be afraid to ask it's your money your spending so ask.

When should timing chain be replaced on nissan 350z

It is a timing chain, and 100,000 miles is a good time to change it.

Timing belts

You need to change the timing belt at every 100,000 interval. I too own a 1999 S40 I still have 20,000km's to go however I would suggest you don't wait the 100,000, break downs are a drag. MCM
