Mileage is the usual suspect, But high heat and fluids not being changed enough is the main cause of block wear. Proper lubrication or lack there of will be the most detrimental cause of bearing surfaces and cylinder bore being destroyed. Hope this helps to answering your question and have a great day.

Check to see if your engine is leaking oil and/or coolant. This causes your engine to overheat and if it's not fixed, it can cause it to freeze up.
Check your oil and antifreeze for contamination. If your oil or antifreeze looks different in any way, have it tested by a lab to determine if contamination has occurred.
Check the level of fluid in your radiator. If your car suddenly loses a lot of coolant or the level is very low, this can indicate a cracked block.
Look for excessive smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe.
Check the radiator's coolant mixture of antifreeze and water to determine if it has frozen.
Check to see if the engine has overheated severely. Overheating can be caused by another engine problem, but the effect of the overheating can be a cracked block.
