I recently had the Jiffy Lube engine flush done on my 1978 F10. They told me the car would smoke for a few minutes afterwards, but it never stopped smoking. I eventually took it to a certified Nissan mechanic and was told not to put anymore money into the F10. They said that the engine was shot and was burning coolant and oil. Well, it is constantly smoking white smoke out the tailpipe, and periodically runs out of coolant & overheats. Also, I don't know if this is related or not but the passenger side floor has been filling up w/ water. I was told by the Nissan mechanic that an engine rebuild would be over $1000 and that it wouldn't be worth it. Does anyone on this site know if there are rebuild kits available for the Datsun F10? Or have any other suggestions. I'm not mechanically inclined, but I am attached to this car.

I'm not certain if the Jiffy Lube engine flush did this to my sweet little Datsun or not. Granted, it was an old car. But, prior to the service the damn car always ran perfectly. I wish I hadn't accepted that service. Then, at least if the engine did go out, I wouldn't have to worry that an unnecessary service was what caused it.

P.S. Can anyone suggest any mechanics in the Portland, OR area who work on old Datsuns?
