Hi and welcome Andy.
No idea about engines, new to jukes myself.
People do answer but it's not a busy forum, Gasmeter seems really knowledgeable PM him.

Hi Andy, There is a difference of opinion on this one, some say only use Nissan genuine parts yet other owners say buy the parts off e-bay, I do know that you have to buy all the parts including all the tensioners and guides for the chain assembly, I believe that Haynes manuals have brought a book out so it could have all the information in there.
Its only a Juke if it's RED.

Juke owners are a lot more friendly than technical !!!, if you find this forum unfriendly, then best stay clear of other bigger social media.

Personally I'd take the head off, get it check, skimmed if needed, new valves and valves seats as needed. If you dont know how to go about that then asking on a juke forum isn't the way to go.

Welcome 😊 check out the Haynes book as Bernie mentioned it could hold all the info you need,also scrapyards who specializes in stripping
Japanese cars might have knowledge to share

Sadly the forum is much quieter than it used to be. 2010-2013 very busy forum with lots of activity
meets chats and what ever but people move on and life changes.
I haven't had a Juke since 2014 and haven't really been near the forum I started in 2010 for months
I popped over to the QQ forum earlier that I worked closely with back in the day and even that is suffering from
quietness. I think now people just look in to find an answer and not get involved
its one of the reasons I passed the forum over to Rob as it wasn't like it was when I started and I lost interest in Nissan
However currently on the lookout for QQ+2 so back browsing for info

Have you looked at the new juke, it is a lot more roomy than the old

Vexorg. If asking me the +2 suits my plans. Also I want to spend £5k not £20k that a new car would be. If I was looking for new I’d be looking at Hybrid options which the Juke doesn’t currently offer. I like the new one. Think it could have been more out there but it’s a good compromise between old and attracting more new buyers
