This is hard to say with out a detailed service history. But you'll want to make sure you've had the timing belt and water pump replaced in at least the last 60k miles. If it's been longer it should be done. The drive belts should be checked for cracks or abnormal wear. Have the plugs been replaced in the last 100k miles? How about the fuel filter? Check the cleanliness of the air filter. Check the front end for worn parts. How are the tires wearing? If unevenly they should be rotated and the alignment checked. Obviously the brakes and shocks/struts should be checked as well for signs of failure.

Is the egr valve covered under gm's 200,000 mile warrentee

You can call GM customer service at 1-800-222-1020 to find out for sure.
I think the original warranty was 5 yrs 100,000 miles for most engine and emission components. There was a law suit on the injectors and that item was extended to 200,000 miles.

My 2000 T 4Runner has 200,000 miles on it. Should I start looking for a newer one? It still runs very well, although it's had a few problems. Is $16,000 a good price for 2004 4Runner V8 with 90,000 miles...

It is really your choice but your 4Runner is capable of allot more miles with good maintenance. If your looking to save money the V8 4Runner in not a good option.

What type of oil is recomended by the manufacturer for a 1991 pontiac firebird with a 3.1 V6 with over 200,000 miles in it? Also what type of fuel is best for the vehicle 87, 89, or 93 gas. Thanks

GM will not make a recommendation for a car with 200,000 miles-when new, it probably called for 10w30, and if it does not smoke you could stay with that. If it does smoke, you might consider going to a heavier weight like 15W-40 or 20W-50, but be careful if you live in a cold climate-20W-50 especially.

For gas, if it does not knock, use 87, using higher octane will only waste money.

2003 grand cherokee with 153000 miles,,,with rear end repairs needed , is it worth the repair

I think its always worth the repair. I have a 99' F-150 with over 200,000 miles on it. I use it for work everyday(believe me she gets abused) and still going strong. Has at least another 100k miles left on her. Vehicles are going to need repairs, thats what happens, but if you do the maintenance that you should. Then your vehicle will last a very long time. A lot longer than 153k, thats for sure.

Warranty question. This is probably a stupid question but here it is. I know in order to get warranty work done you must have kept up with scheduled maitenence. Is there a certain window you have to get...

the warranty is specific to the paper.. If the text dont state a window.. There is none.. The would argue it was supposed to be brought in before 5000 miles..

no it isnt a stupid question.. A lot of people ask that type of info :)

Mitsubishi Montero head gasket: Is it normally a head gasket or are these known to have cracked blocks or heads?

The blocks dont normally crack as much as the heads do,so i would look at the heads first,But if its done say 200,000 miles plus and not been serviced every 6,000 miles!the chances are that the engine wear will be high,this is all assuming its petrol not Diesel,and you may want to tread carefully as to how much money you spend fixing it.Heads only youd probably do it but an engine....youd want to get a good secondhandie,as to the age of the vehicle

60,000 mile timing chain maitenance

Your Lancer should have a timing belt. There is no grace period on changing them, follow what the manufacturer says. You have a interference engine and should the belt fail while you are driving down the highway engine damage will happen.
