1991 Infiniti G20 Q&A
1991 Infiniti G20 Question: What is typical clutch wear expectation and does this engine use timing belts?
I'm looking at buying a used car that looks to be in good condition. What would be the average time that this car would need a clutch replacement? It has 112K miles. Also, do these cars need timing belts and if so, at what mileage intervals? I'm trying to anticipate if there are any major expenses I would have to deal with beyond the purchase price of $1200. - clarion
That engine uses a timing chain but it is very important on that engine to change the engine oil frequently. The clutch life depends on the individual driver's driving habits and vehicle use but 100,000 miles is not unreasonable many people get 150,000 miles. Have a pre-purchase inspection done by a garage knowledgeable in Nissan or Infinity, it will be money well spent, hat they find may divert you from buying a "bad car" and or what they find (lack of maintenance or repairs needed) can be used to negotiate price. - patrick mannion
