Hello! I am rebuilding my 99 Altima engine with 207K miles, it overheated and is now on its last legs after a patch job. I have a good friend mechanic who has the know-how, but I just want to make sure we dont leave anything out. I am buying a reman head cylinder and taking the block to be machined, (bored, crank turned, etc). My question is what do I need to replace that is cost efficient? I’m thinking about the clutch (manual tranny) , maybe oil pump… My assumption is that those have already been changed with as many miles as the car has. I have only owned it a few months. What are your thoughts? What part should I change while I have the engine out?
Thanks SO much for the help.
