142000 miles what to look for

Vehicle1998 Nissan Frontier XE 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
ReviewI bought this truck new. No problems until about 130000 mi. Tachometer works when it wants now. Timing chain guides wore out @130K, bent all the intake valves, fixed myself. Still a daily driver to work, has 144K on it now. Cannot get it to quit coding P1706 (park nuetral position switch on 5-speed manual). Dealer says to replace wiring harness, might solve problem. Truck has been good, so I bought a 2007 and drive '98 to work daily.
Best FeaturesVery dependable 4WD. Passenger side lockout hard to turn, pulled it, cleaned it and greased it. Now it is O.K. Truck is not a speed demon, but it does not shy away from heavy workouts.
Worst FeaturesNissan already made all the improvements I would suggest. It is the new Frontier.
