Hey. I have a 93 altima with about 160,000 miles on it... It's in good condition, other than one thing. I have a cracked head gasket. I put about $1000 into the car this summer, so you can see why I don't just want to scrap it. Think I should try to find the part I need at a junk yard and try to fix it myself or just consider the car dead?

Thing is with a head gasket, is that you could of cracked your head or block.....in any case when replacing the gasket, you should normally get both checked and re-surfaced.....both cases are pretty expensive ( this happened on the KA24 in my 240sx)....the cheapest option i found was to get a used engine from a scrapped car.....or maybe you'll wanna go with a rebuild....in any case, good luck man.
