Default Re: i wanna see who has the miles on their 2.5L

221,875 miles. I have a red 96 XLT extended cab with a manual transmission. The transmission, engine and A?C are original. I had to replace the head at 211,000 miles. The valve seats had eroded away. This is a common problem with this engine. After replacing the head, it runs like new. Significant power increase. Early symptoms of this problem are decreased power and stalling after down shifting at a stop. Later stages are load exhaust, rough running,rough idle and very low power. A head replacement is expensive, but worth it. The engine sounds like it will go another 100,000 miles.

Chris, you don't have a 2.5. Read the thread title.

I just hit 160k with my 97 2.3 5 speed. Runs great, I think it might need a cat converter pretty soon though. But aside from that its great. Not a single problem otherwise.
