Don't go over 5000 miles. The oil life monitor will say you have 50 % (Approx.) but if you use it to 100% you will be way over due for an oil change.

The system uses rpm and coolant temperature to calculate the oil life, so if you don't drive very far the system will not calculate it correctly.

I have just bought a 1994 b250 van on an Impulse sale. This beauty starts, rides, handles and looks like new. One owner, super well maintained and no decs. The neg side, it's got 325.000 kilometers or...


It will live until it dies. Most common cause for engine failure is a failure for the owner to maintain the engine properly. I have a customer with 1,000,000+ miles on a Volvo. Every maintenance item done like clockwork.

If you expect you old reliable to maintain perfect tune-up status after TWO years, you are expecting too much, it could be many small things. Do a complete inspection before changing so many parts.

My sons first car he is looking at 1998 oldsmobile intrigue. What is the transmission life expectancy with 168000 if it has been well maintained.


An "intriguing" question, and one with out a real answer, except that if it has been well maintained, then to keep it that way. The transmissions on these GM's are average, like any car ,and can be as good or better than the engine. If there is concern for this, ask for records of transmission filter and fluid changes, which should happen roughly after every 50,000 mi. After purchasing, have the transmission fully flushed to include the torque converter.

if you are going to by a S 600 it's really good car as you know the life of car depend on how you treat it, if you maintain it the right way don't worry it's a really good one, when get old some electrical fault can occur it's normal for all the cars not only the S600, so it's really smooth and powerful car before you by it you must check is the previous owner has maintain it properly or not, that's the most important thing check the service history and repair history if the car have been maintain by Mercedes dealer it's be a good car, if you do right way if it's over half million mile not be a problem

How much mileage can we expect from the life of the 2004 Ford Excursion?


It depends on how well you take care of it and if you service it like your supposed to. I've seen these get 4 or 500,000 miles on them before finally going dead if they are properly maintained and driven.

My car has 144,500 miles n i dont think the timing chain has been checked would it be wise to get it looked at when i get it inspected next yr


The timing chain usually lasts a long time, and if you don't hear a lot of rattling, it's probably ok.

Timinig belts(replace every 80,000 mi.) seem to wear out faster than timing chains which when properly maintained through oil changes can last for the life of the car's engine.

I expect to get about 200,000 mi. on my 1990 Cadillac Deville which has a timing chain in it, and has just gotten to 192,000 mi. recently.

2003 4Runner 100,000 miles


If you want low maintenance and long term reliability then you need to find something with less miles and a warranty. Yes, the motor and trans will last well over 200k if maintained properly but all the little parts that make it all happen can pick away at you. You can't spend 10g and expect a 30g truck.
