mac, Hey MikeRL411 ,I got the 93 J , can tell you a few suggestions ,factoids & exp.I have 260kmi
Locale , "garaged', oil changes biggest factors in lifespan of these cars. Some things - I have never had a OEM
water pump leak / go bad, I put 160kmi !!! on last Timing belt & pulleys ,pulleys (3x3 sets=9) never went completly bad , one got little noisy(upper pulley) easily replaced by itself, Motor sounded like "upper valve" knocking like a "trashed engine" but when T-belt & pulley set , totally SMOOTH now, use the 20/50 or Mob1 15/50 in summer for sure, trans fluid use Nissan D fluid in a pan drop & clean/screen clean / fill @55kmi ,gotta WAX on the clear-coat to prevent fade .......... If you may want to wait until ANY "mild slapping" in the cams , or wait till water pump weeps - those BOTH get done doing the T- belt and pulleys (tensioner piston really is very very tough- I test & re-used mine).The Timing belt in mine 115K and the 160kmi both didn't look damaged , or slipping , no oil leaks at cam seals (cam seals are my originals - never wanted to fix what's not broke there!
) First one was replaced as a maint. milestone , 2nd T-belt replaced because THREE mechanics told me my motor was trashed (I'm a mech. too
) W/ new belt it revs , runs, idles etc. like it's on a SECOND LEASE on LIFE! Any questions? I think yours is low mi babied and these cars are die-hards .
I've seen 'em in junkyard with up to 287 kmi on them
TIP= on VG30DE look inside oil filler at #1 intake cam lobe , mine like a mirror .This oughtta be a kind of all-round "representative condition" of motor, and if you have lotsa SLUDGE buildup - or whatever.
