Hi there, thanks for writing in. First off, take your Nissan to a different mechanic. Yes; changing the motor would fix the issue, but if they are guessing that the timing chain is the reason why you’re consuming as much oil as you are and the vehicle only goes 30 mph, that’s most likely not the issue. What I’d do is contact one of our professional mechanics who can come to your location to complete an engine is smoking inspection. This will allow a professional mechanic to download any error codes, inspect your vehicle and determine for certain what is damaged. If the repair costs is going to cost you more than the vehicle is worth, they’ll tell you the truth.
