My 98 stickshift is at 325,000! Runs AMAZINGLY well Pretty sure the head gaskey just went out (spewing oil all over the header) Still running strong though this will require attention. On that note, the clutch has never been replaced. Still feels great, and smooth shifting of course!

Last run to Florida left me at 124,000

124K on my 2007. Mobil 1. Last oil change was at 115,000 - so I guess I'll have to change the oil before I run back to NJ.

270,000 +, have 4.56 gearing so my mileage is off 1/10th every mile. Oil pan is leaking a little but that is a project for summer, not below freezing weather.

135,000 on my 04 RC. Front brake pads and a muffler. I'll guess the muffler is because I'm in the rust belt, maybe. Happy to have the last of the first Gen's . Does anybody think it is worth it to change to synthetics at this point? I've already changed diffs, transfer and tranny to synthetics.

TOPOMICH04COMA definitely worth it to switch to synthetics...been using them for decades...and don't believe the old tales about synthetics causing leaks...leaks will only occur if the vehicle was neglected in the first place.

Bingo.

Early synthetics were much higher detergent content than conventional oils, so older engines that were "sludged up" would be cleaned by the synthetics and the result was (the revelation of existing) leaks.

When synthetics were introduced, non-detergent oils were commonly available, and like the current resistance to 5w20 and 0w20, many "old timers" stuck with it (but didn't hesitate to try Amsoil because it was 'Murican).

The issue with switching to synthetic motor oil is doing so on a high mileage vehicle. The head gaskets get lubricated for years with conventional motor oil and when you switch to a synthetic, you will get leaks, unless you change your head gaskets when you make the switch.

I read this on a website a while back, and while I certainly don't do any justice to explaining WHY this happens, I have to tell you I didn't believe it, but I found out the hard way - It is True.

I buy all my vehicles used, usually with 200k or more. I always switch them to synthetics with NO problems. IF the vehicle has been reasonably maintained, ie fairly regular oil changes...there has been no problem.

The dino vs synthetic debate continues

Bottom line is...as long as you change your oil you will be ok.

I just like the benefits of synthetics. I put lots of miles on my vehicles, usually without many problems. I think synthetics help.

Hmmm, I have 15k also and 2 years older, I must be doing something wrong. Plan on keeping this truck 20+ years, unless a diesel emerges.

Well I haven't had my truck too long but it just rolled over to 108k today which is nothing for a 2.7. My truck in high school was a work truck and had over 320k miles on it and is still going.
