    Re: How many miles can you put on a Ford?

    My '93 Taurus has been in 2 rather severe accidents.......was built FORD TOUGH though and will prolly hit 200K before the year is out *(Currently have 173K on it)*
    When you turn your car on....does it return the favor?

    Past Rides:
    '90 Lincoln Mark VII
    '93 Ford Taurus GL

    He went 55k miles without changing the oil? This doesn't seem right.

    He's had to have replaced a lot of other stuff too on the thing. We've had several E-series vans, I know.

    "REPLACED PARTS: 2 Fuel pumps, rebuilt alternator 3 times, 2 front springs and usual front end parts, 1 radiator in July of 2004 but still original hoses, 3 or 4 serpentine belts, turn signal unit, 1 windshield, driver side mirror and normal tune up parts."

    We've had to do differentials, transmissions (with regular fluid changes anyway), door hinges and handles...and we've haven't had a van with over 300k.

    I don't feel it's physically possible for a serpentine belt to last 500k miles

    My family had an Explorer with 200,000 that was still running well and a Ranger with 315,000 miles running well when it was totaled. Both had the original engine and transmission. My Ranger has only 101,000. My sister's Taurus has only 130,000. I expect both to last a lot longer.

    Re: How many miles can you put on a Ford?

    I recently waved a sad goodbye to my F-150 which had 202,000 on it. It has been pushing coolant for the last 20,000 miles and getting progressively worse. That, along with numerous electrical problems and recent upward trends in fuel prices helped me make the tough decision. It's now in pickup heaven.
    I may be shallow, but counter it by also being dense. Tim

    My 96 Ford Ranger XLT 2WD has 155,000 and still runs good, but now needs a new alternator! But other than that it runs fine, no telling how much longer it will go!!!!

    ^^ Yeah and if you look at the photo gallery section, there are some that have a lot more than just 200,000 miles.
