The answer was used nissan engines. Cost was an obvious issue as purchasing even used vehicles for these women was way too expensive for the amount of money the shelter had. There were some used cars that people may donate, but no one is going to donate a great car with everything working properly, if it is in that good of shape they would keep it. That is where used nissan engines come into play and fortunately one of the members of the charity group knows something about nissan engine code. Because Nissan builds such superior engines, they often out last the life of the car body. Once the body of the car is rusted or damaged beyond repair a mechanic who is familiar with nissan engine code can remove the used nissan engines and salvage them for other uses. One of these uses can be to restore vehicles with adequate bodies but without other working parts. The goal was to create a vehicle that was safe for travel and use by one of the women from the shelter as she attempted to break out of her abusive situation and establish a new life for her and her children.
It was the man from the charity group who knew about nissan engine code that initiated this wonderful idea and found several salvage yards in the area to cooperate and donate used nissan engines to this worthy cause. They preferred the used nissan engines because of their solid reputation and unquestionable quality. The women at the shelter were so excited to learn that they would also be able to borrow one of these "new" vehicles to search for a job, visit loved ones, take their kids out, etc... Basically, they were thrilled to have the same luxury of freedom as they had before their abuser took it all away from them. Anything that can be done to help restore the self-esteem and confidence in women once they have been abused is critical to their healing process. It seems difficult to believe that there is a better use for used nissan engines than that.
Nissan engines do come in all sizes and all makes. Obviously if you have an older car then you will need an engine that is suited to your car. But if you would like to upgrade your engine then you can but it will cost a lot of money if you want a new Nissan engine. A used Nissan engine would be the better choice.
