the 03 4.0 is a solid motor. treat her nice, change the oil every 3k, dont beat on it, and keep up on the "little things", and it will last forever. lol. awesome video response. i bout pissed myself

I've got 203,xxx on my '02 4.0 and the thing starts and runs like its brand new. I have every maintenance record for every little thing done to it. I am the second owner and have put 50,000 miles on it in three years. Damn good trucks, these 4.0 SOHC Rangers are.

If the maintenance was kept up on it and you don't beat on it.
It'll last you a long time.

a guy I work with has an '03 Mazda B4000 (same engine) with 350k on it. He is a traveling salesman, so they are all highway miles, but he is just now starting to have a little transmission trouble. He's never had any big engine trouble.
