Hi everyone,
Hope you and yours are doing well... and safe. I've been told by the Nissan dealer that I need a new engine. I'd like an OEM engine. Can anyone give me some advice please?

New vs used engine? Warranty?
Do I have to go through the dealer or can I use a non-Nissan autoshop?
What can I expect to pay in total (for parts and labor) for a new vs. used engine?
Any other thoughts?

I've never had to buy an engine before so looking for any guidance please.

Thank you and hope y'all have a great weekend!

You can always check wrecking yards for one if you don't mind buying used. You might find one from a car with fewer miles than yours. Admittedly, you take your chances.

Your third option is to have it rebuilt; then you know what you have.
