Things to Replace when Swapping in a New Engine

632 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  DALassiter44
I have a 2006 Nissan Xterra Off-Road with a blown motor (had 179k) I recently purchased an engine out of a 2015 Nissan Frontier with 48K to replace it with. My question is what should I replace before installing the new motor? Here is what I have so far to replace.
  • Oil pressure sensor switch
  • Valve cover gaskets
  • Spark plugs & coil packs
  • Thermostat & gasket
  • Front motor mounts
  • Water pump & gaskets
  • Exhaust manifold gasket
  • Intake manifold gasket set
  • Oil pan gasket
  • Serpentine belt
  • Front crank shaft seal
  • Rear main seal
Anything else you guys can think of that would be smart to replace before putting in the new motor? TIA guys!!
