Hmm......that sucks. I've been thru (1) timing chain recall. The RS supposedly have a better oil pump than standard. I'm trying to see how an oil pump "blows". Maybe the tensioner failed or the timing chain wore out and "stretched". All depends on the mileage and oil quality. I wouldn't trust these timing chains and tensioners for more than 60k miles. Good luck.

yeah it was a guide then the tensioner, going 75mph and 500 miles on oil. (work at a shop and replace everything consistently

Pump body broke apart. Tensioner must have failed and caused some chain whip.

Not totally sure on the recall for +2014 owners. Mine was done about 2014

Was that chain an original with 95,000 miles? If so, then probably explains the failure. I don't trust the chains past 100,000 miles.
Looking at the pump it saw some serious harmonics to crack the pump body.

Rebuild time.

ORIGINAL chain, now I'm tracking down engines with all my professional sources but no one has one. the only option I've found is Nissan themselves for 5400 just a long black. (obvious block damage since I have a piece of it next to me). do you maybe know of a place that might have one?

OK, that makes some sense. I thought the timing chains were supposed to be good for 120,000 miles but apparently not.

I don't have a source for a used one. I've seen some for sale previously from the salvage yards but I haven't looked in awhile. I'm just NOT a fan of salvage engines or transmissions unless you are dumping the vehicle on a trade or something. It's tough to beat a factory fresh engine if you are looking for maximum reliability. Because all the components are seeing cycle fatigue, it's just better to start with new parts. The timing chain aside, these engines are reliable, I know mine took a heavy beating and I'm rebuilding it because it was pulled for a transmission rebuild.

The $5400 price isn't too terrible, that sounds about the cheapest price I've seen.

Just an option.

As been discussed before in the forums. There is not much difference between a RS and regular Juke. Rod bearings and the oil pump and thats about it ? I think.

Any Gen 1 Juke motor will bolt up to the 6 speed ?

There is a 2014 in in Spokane Washington at with 37k miles so they say. $1700. No sure about shipping.

yeah looking at those options as well, here at our shop after we installed 4 transmissions used from lkq in only one car we knew used was no longer the way to go

found on in Denver from a 2013 Nismo rs 95000 miles but always thinking about this happening sooner due to miles. 1000 bucks is a cheap and super reasonable gamble
