My motor has blown and I need a replacement apparently. I'm in NZ and there are none available. Is there another motor that will fit. Don't care about power. Thanx

Try looking into the Jeep Liberty of the same vintage. Should use the same engine as it is a sister vehicle to the Nitro.

Good luck!(y)

If it is a 3.7... But you will need to move the cams and the flywheel as the timing is different, if donner is an early year 3.7.

Also what thread is the front tow hook for my Nitro. Thanx.
Meaning what direction does it thread in, or a post/thread here talking about it?

OK Thanks. Unfortunately, the parts manuals I have do not list the thread size of the hook/eye.
Hope an export owner here on the forum can pull theirs out and get a size for you.
Here in the US, our rigs don't have tow hooks.
If it helps any the same eye hook is used in the 07-16 Jeep Patriot. 05067531AA

just measured mine, it's M16, also tried a M16 nut just to be sure the thread was correct, fits perfect.

You say the motor is blown, just what did it do? If you don't have a replacement available in NZ it may be practicable to repair the original in place.
