My frontier has been giving me problems for a while and around me someone suggested that I should replace the engine with a 3.5L V6 infinity 2002 engine that, it will perform well and everything will be fine. I need your advise on what to do as I love this truck.

Thank you.

The yellow windshield washer fluid low indicator light on dashboard will blink for a few minutes while operating the vehicle, en will stop pulsing and stay solid yellow. Also my cruise control will turn on but when trying to engage this function, most of the time it won't catch or "set". Possibly related?

No matter where I have the temperature control dial set, in the blue area or the red I get heat from the vent. Don't want a/c just fresh air which should flow from center and side vents with the air flow control dial set on head position. No idea how the temp control dial works or where it is?

I broke the timing belt and need to know if I need a valve job. If it is a non interference engine, then I don't need it.

I went to get an oil change and was told there is a high pitch sound when engine is reved.
