How many miles can a 1998 NISSAN 240SX engine have on it?
if it has the ka24de motor in it my 93 240 has the ka24de and it has over 300,000 miles on it and it has no problems at all, so it can have alot on it if it is kept in good shape
According to the history of the Nissan Quest Vg30e engine from 1993 thru 1998 these group of engines were non-interference engine, so if the belt breaks it will not damage the valves. This feature was demanded by FORD from Nissan before FORD agreed to used this engine in their ViLLAGER and Nissan Quest vans in the time of their joint venture.
The answer you got was incorrect. 1998 Maximas have a 3.0L V6 with a timing *chain*. You do not replace the chain on any kind of regular maintenance interval. It will probably last about as long as the camshafts, in other words, the life of the engine, which is upwards of 200K miles in these cars if they are treated well.
