If Taken Care Of These Engines Will Give You Over 200,000 Miles.
1997 buick life
I have seen many with 400,000 miles and still going. Long life average is impossible to average or tell as the engine life beyond the first 100,000 is 100% based on driver habits and how the maintenance is done.
About 30,000 to 45,000 miles for an average mileage life of a vehicle engine for each of the major manufacturers. Some numbers may differ if you are harsh to your cars, you gun the motor, squal out and such is bad. Your car is to get you from point A to point B and any other place you wish to go.
No, you can and should use high mileage oil if the vehicle has over 100,000 on the ODO.
depends on how you treat it.
It has a timing chain that should last the life of the engine.
There is not set mileage to change the chain. It should last the life of the engine.
The timing chain has no set date or mileage for replacment. It will normally last the life of the engine.
a knock sensor will retard or advance ignition spark, improving gas mileage and will not shorten engine life , if any thing it will extend engine life.
My 1995 Buick Regal Transmission just went out at 249,000, but everything else still works.
I just got one with over 270,000 miles
The timing chain is designed to last the life of the engine.
The total mileage a car can last is completely up to the driver. With routine maintenance, oil changes, and check-ups, you will get much more life out of your vehicle. If it is not cared for, it will not run as long.
average current is between 40 and 70 thousand. average life expectantcy is around 175,000
You don't. The chain is designed to last the life of the engine and is normally replace during a complete engine rebuild.
The timing chain needs no maintenance. It is designed to last the life of the engine and is replace when the engine is rebuilt.
I had a 1988 that went 235K miles on the same engine and then I sold it--still running well. I did keep oil changes up to date and most of these miles were not freeway miles.
Assuming a 3800 (3.8L) engine, it has a timing chain which, with a little luck should last the life of the car/engine.
You don't change them unless there is a problem. Timing chains are designed to last the life of the engine and are normally replaced during an engine rebuild.
The average life expectancy of an engine in a Ford Focus is around 150,000 - 250,000 miles. You can extend the life expectancy of your engine by making sure you do regular maintenance and upkeep on it.
average life of an interstate bus is 300,000 miles they still run well but that is when companies change em for new ones
When a vehicles engine is maintained as recommended you will have a longer engine life. There will also be less repairs over time, and the fuel mileage will be higher.
At least 200,000 miles.
