Exclamation My Xterra is Dead - End of an Era

I am sad to say that my X has died for probably the last time.

The engine threw some stuff that was supposed to stay IN the engine OUT of the engine on Rt 195 on Wednedsay, making a load bang and a hole that spewed oil and smoke from under the hood in somewhat dramatic fashion.

I am working my ass off doing hurricane/disaster response work...and have zero $ to fix it.

I borrowed a car to get to work, etc, but, can't even buy another one...luckily I can borrow it for a while, but, its a nissan cube, and it can't get through even the beach properties I am working at, due to the large amount of debris on the streets, sink holes, etc.

So, with the X down for the count, no $ and no Time to fix or even replace it...I'm afraid I'm xterra-less in NJ.

sorry to hear that. You definitely have one of the baddest xterras I have seen, but you just cant win with the engines can you.

good luck getting it all back together and running.

Apply dirt liberally, rinse and repeat

get someone with AAA premium to get it towed to Mike's and buy whatever you need off my rig.


"Last time I checked there are streets and parking lots in queens. Why not install it there?" I do....since you like quotes so much.

or wait till the my truck is stripped, buy it from Mike at scrap price and put you stuff from your other truck on it. if you don't have the money up front, I'm sure we can work out a payment plan.....
