The engine is round about 124 or 125 thousand miles. A well loved car for 11 years. Although It has only been mine for a half odd year it was my dads before that. And I drive way more aggressive then I should for the poor car not aggressive as in cutting people off but just lots of high acceleration. Thanks for the welcome :)
Also, I drive Id say an average of 350 - 400 miles a month, (When life is in full swing) Currently probably 150 - 300 miles a month.

Nissan had a big problem with that year engine. It would usually develop a "piston slap" in the number 3 cylinder. My 2009 versa sedan had the engine replaced under warranty with less than 35,000 miles. What happens is that the piston starts to rock in the cylinder, and after a time, the engine will start to use oil at a higher amount than usual. Usually with this kind of issue, the piston slap can be heard when the engine is first started from cold. As the engine warms up, the noise will become less and less. When I first noticed the noise, the dealership tried to tell me it was normal being caused by the fuel injection system. I had the issue documented, and the noise just kept getting louder and louder until they had no choice but to honor the warranty.
