200,000-300,000 miles if you keep up with oil changes and belt changes especially the timing belt this is usually the most important belt if it brakes you'll need a new engine. Change this belt around 80-100,000 miles.

Thinking about buying a ford escape..2009....miles @ 132, this good to buy with mileage being high

Normally this amount of mileage is fine...The Escape is safe, and popular...At these miles, the motor should have been tuned up...brakes replaced recently? Also front and rear struts are usually worn out before 80,000 miles...have they been replaced? A service record on this Escape may be available? Can you talk with the previous owner?

What is the mileage to replace timing chain on 2001 Surburban with 5.3 l engine

Timing chains usually last the lifetime of the engine, unlike belts. If noisy, change it otherwise if it seems OK and the engine has been serviced regularly, leave alone.

My veh has 165254 miles..should I think about getting a rebuilt engine?

If it still runs good, isn't burning oil and passes smog, I would keep driving it. The newer engines are built with better components and can last for a lot longer than the old ones.

How often do I change the oil

Every 3 -5 k miles. Regular every day driving. Towing,dirty conditions etc about a third less than that. Some new motor oils offer extended mileage, you can read those for more info. But remember, the longer you keep the oil in the vehicle the more depsoits from burning fuel is churning around in your engine.

I have a 1989 Buick Regal with the 3.1 V6 engine. What is the replacement interval for the timing chain? This car has well over 200,000 miles I think on the original chain. I am the second owner and got it...

There is no standard replacement interval for timing chains. There are some signs that will indicate that it is worn out like a rattle from behind the timing cover. If the engine has been taken care of the chain should last the life of the engine.

The only time I have changed them is if the vehicle has higher miles and the timing cover needs to be pulled to fix a problem like an oil leak or coolant leak. Otherwise they are not common repairs.

Dead alternator

are you buying new or remanufater ,how long do they last ,are they covered under warranty ? im sure there are some brands that advertise longer life or have a longer warrenty but with 410,000 miles i dont think your car will last that much longer without something major going out gota think about price vs life expectance you might find a 5year warrenty at 300$ but your car tanks in 1 for example

Best ways to keep my 1996 mercedes benz c class engine efficient

Oil changes every 6,000 miles with new filter too.

New spark plugs, HT leads and distributor cap every 12,000 miles.

Let it warm up properly in the morning before moving off.

Clean air filter or replace ever 12,000 miles.

Clean out the intake manifold with carb cleaner to remove nasty deposits.

That should help your engine last a very long time.

Hope this helps and vote for if you think so. Thanks
