Hi, How are you doing? I just need a Budget Friendly Mechanic to put in a new engine in my car! I need a effective, reliable, mechanic that will give me great quality, and not a rush job. Also to tell me if there is any other problems with my car. Thank You and Have a great day!

Mr.Thomas

    I have no way to estimate a complete engine replacement, so here's our estimator link, it may be of some help.
    As far a saving money, be careful. Remember: "Cheaper, or better job: Pick one."
    I understand saving money but the primary interest is fixing the car properly the first time, you may pay less and get less quality if you try to be too "thrifty." The best thing to do is find an independent Nissan specialist. That's how to get your money's worth..
    If you want to find a specialist, here's our directory link for you:

    Thanks SuperBob for your response First I am not cheap, Yes I am aware paying less you get less quality I am asute professional. Yes I paid top quality for my car and top dollar for the labor before within 3 weeks of that my car broke down. The Place I went to had a 5 star rating ok now I need a new engine and the works! Thank you for your information, I will speak to a Nissan Specialist and then I will let you know how it turns out!

    Hello to replace the engine (remove transfer parts from your engine to the replacement engine install, get running tune up and test drive is about 18 hours labor according to my labor guide and having done them. Afraid I have no personal recommendation of someone in your neighborhood, I'm in California.
