I had a 94 Mazda B4000, n that 4.0 had 310000 on it when I got rid of it,and as far as I know she is still out there...........only major problems I had were the typical hubs,and went through 2 tranny's...had a 96 Explorer w/130000 poorly maintained(wifes bucket)and had NO problems.............. cant beat the OHV 4.0
