Good evening all. I have a question for anyone that can answer. My predicament starts with a bit of a story. So in 2016 I was activated with my reserve unit and away from home for 5 months. In that time, my ex wife ran my Juke low on oil. When I was back home, I noticed a ticking noise that sounded like some valve slap. I immediately had the oil changed as it was at 58k miles. The noise didn’t go away so I started browsing online and found on here that there was a timing chain recall. I got that fixed, but the noise didn’t stop. I had a feeling that since the ex ran it low on oil, one of the crank bearings or one of the cams could be damaged. I took the car to Nissan and was told that it looks like there is metal shavings in the oil and the symptoms appeared to be a bad main bearing. They told me this was going to cost me about $9k to fix unless I could provide all service history for the car (I could not). So I drove the car for another 6 months and was activated again. When I got back, same thing, I drove for another 4 months and went on deployment. Well, overall I have put about 16k miles on the car after the initial ticking. I know I have to replace the engine, and called around.
Nissan gave me the part number for my Nismo Juke engine as 101023YWME, then said the new engine would cost $6800. So my questions are as follows:
1. I have the manual 2014 FWD Nismo Juke. Can I replace the engine with one that came out of a Juke with a CSV?
2. Can I replace the engine across platforms without issues? For example, can I put the S, SV, Nismo, or Nismo RS engine in my juke, or am I limited to just another Nismo Juke engine?
3. Does year matter?
Im asking this so I can order a long block with turbo shipped to my mechanic. I found a 2014 Nismo Juke RS engine and a 2013 Juke SV engine for close to the same price. Would either of these work, or am I stuck to finding a juke that is the same year, same model, same transmission?
any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
