1996 Nissan Altima I have multiple questions

  • 4 CYL
  • FWD
  • 224,000 MILES
My car is running great. However, I had my radiator flushed and they gave me a list of stuff that needs to be replaced and I would like to know if it is worth it if I am planning on keeping the car for less than 6 months. I have 7 different leaks; power steering lines, power steering rack, boots are also torn in half. Upper and lower oil pans; front crank seal and timing cover seals; transmission fluid (which is also dark) pan; passenger front control arm bushings are oil soaked and coming apart; rear sway bar end links are blown out; drivers side front cv boot is torn and slinging grease; is it worth it to have all of this fixed or even ANY of this stuff? Will I be stranded if I don't have any of this fixed? Also, should I have the transmission flushed, or what do I do about the fluid? Another question is they mentioned I have a misfire and I know which cylinder it is, also I have motor mounts that need to be replaced, but I am thinking they can come from the junk yard and save me some money along with the labor. I am just looking for opinions and I value your opinion. Thank you.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi there,

Wow this is one sick puppy! I would not be spending a cent on it if you are not keeping it, I wold be looking at up dating ASAP, just about all you have mentioned should be looked at asap, but if it was mine I would be on to the wreckers and say come and get it!
