Nissan built better engines back then vs now. It may not be too bad, a compression test will be your best bet to find out how it's doing internally.

ok scotty will do....and if engine is bad would you recomend buying used engine cause im surprised with mine lasted 378,000 miles.....

running backwards ruins an engine, so odds are engine already has serious internal damage. Do a wet and dry compression test of the engine first to see if thats already the case
