I had 47,000 before I blew my first 3.4

User error. The 5vz is bullet proof...just not water proof.

I have 218K on my 2002 V6 3.4 and aside froman engine sludge problem @ 44K I have had no other issues. Now I am playing a catch-up game though, as I have lapsed on some general maint things.

how long before my next bowel movement? life expectancy of my pacman frog? if i get drunk now when will the whiskey dick go away? you can reach 200k with proper maintenance. your car can blow up at 75k if its a lemon. it can last 500k if you never go over 50 mph. you will never know.

I remember reading about a guy who was a storm chaser. I remember one engine had around 550k on it and the other had like 675k or something. I forget which thread they were in let me do some digging....
