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

I would like to dispute the lack of confidence to making it to 250000 miles I am extremely close. Just purchased mine this last june, and it was a fleet vehicle so I knew to expect high miles, but they usually have regular thorough maintenance as well here is a pic for proof

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.
This is exactly what happened to me. I was not sure if I had done it or if the seat in the second cylinder exhaust valve just failed through regular wear. I had to replace my head at 195,000 after chasing a problem of low power and stalling for about 9 month. Could not figure it out thought it was electrical or fuel. This was until I did a compression check on the engine and realized my #2 cylinder was really low on compression. I replaced the head and everything is back to normal. I did all the work so I was only out $350 for a reconditioned head and about $350 on new parts like water pump, alt, thermostat, timing belt, tb tensioner, etc. I just replaced everything coming out with new parts, figured since I was in there might as well do her right coming out. Plus you do not want to open her back up when something little goes because you did not replace it coming out.

The funny thing is that the cylinder had the hone marks on it still with no verticle lines going up and down the cylinder in all four of the chambers. I was truly amazed.

So the 2.5 L 4-banger has around 202,000 miles and still going strong. Well it is strong now anyways. :-)
