Mileage.....

Hey, to all the people with older Rangers (like '96 and older) that stil have the stock motor and trans, how many miles are currently on your motor? I was just wondering how many my motor will take before finally blowing (it currently has a little over 206K).

haha yeah, this motor has a lot of miles on it (it's a '96). I am surprised it has lasted this long. I haven't had to do any major part replacements on it either.

Your engine's life depends on how hard of a life it's lived.

my new 87 has 232000 and a spun bearing, most likely because the previous owner let the oil get too low
