it appears my engine has a rod knock and i am now in between a rock and a hard place. I love my car but i will need to replace the motor (unless there is another solution). I am curious if any infiniti mechanics have suggestions for me and/or know of a place to buy a used motor. I believe the motor is a vk45de. I appreciate any and all feedback. Thank you.
I've bought motors and transmissions on Ebay before and always had a good experience. Unfortunately, it looks like prices are way up since last I looked, almost double now for used ones than what they were 5-6 years ago.
I doubt it would be any cheaper to repair your current engine. Aftermarket oversized pistons and other parts are very expensive for that motor since it is so uncommon.
