I would have posted hear for mine too - but the bearing made me ineligible.
Asks for only manufacturer recommended maintenance and no more so far, except for a recent problem shifting into first and reverse which was traced to low clutch fluid, not mechanical defect, and since the fluid was topped off its been fine ever since. I am expecting at least 150 thousand miles before selling. The 2.3 runs as flawlessly as the day I got it and the clutch still pulls like new.
196,000 miles. Never less than 7500 mi between oil changes. Have gone over 20,000 mi. before changing oil several times. Have run it low on oil 'till it "knocks" then just added whatever was available and rode it some more. I've repaced:
Two fuel filters Two sets of belts and hoses
Two sets of plugs
One water pump
One altrnator bracket
Bought new in December 1969
Sold in April 1977 120 K miles
Changed oil every 2000 miles (Recommended back then)
Changed trans fluid 50 K & 100 K
Changed fuel pump at same time as trans fluid
(Old rubber diaphram fuel pumps were a maintenance item)
Three sets of tires
Other than filters fluids and wiper blades no repairs.
Wife's truck-1992 Toyota 4X4 Ext-Cab Pickup, 186,000 miles, still has original clutch, we did replace the radiator. My 89 has been so reliable I am afraid to buy another truck, even a Toyota! HELP!!!!!!
1983 Ford Ranger, 4 cylinder, 170,000 miles timing belt and ignition module, original belts and hoses. Was not treated easy either
1987 Ford Escort, 200,000+ now, uncle drives it, fuel pump, timing belt, Alternator module thingy (forget what it is called), and water pump.
1990 Ford Bronco, 148,000 miles not one thing except serpentine belt, not one thing, squeks alot but it is a truck. Used on a lot of loaded down camping trips.
1998 Ford Escort Zx2, 40,000 miles, nothing wrong, fit and finish very good, inside materials good.
Make me sortof wonder why you went to Chevy's
When I find a good brand, I stick with it.. (like I would recommend to homey7 to stick with his toyota's, they've treated him well). However, if I start experiencing problems with Fords, then I'll look elsewhere for my next vehicle..
I have had such a awesome experience with it, as well as people I know that own chevy's (I wouldn't listen before)that Chevy's the place for me now. This is about the same time also that Ford came out with the new F150's with overhead cam designs that I said see ya later Ford.
secondly a buddy of mine has a 93 ranger XLT 2.3L 5 spd, he just turned 239,000 miles, running like a champ
1993 Toyota 4-Runner SR5 V-6 125,500 miles.
Original everything! (Knock on wood...)Only had to have the oil changed (go figure), timing belt (same), and brake pads, oh and tires. Interior is immaculate and has held up without cracking or fading. She is a little weathered- I lived in the Mojave Desert for over 3 years- and her power is not always as good as I could wish, but for reliability there is no better- for me.
2wd, 2.3L, 5spd.
208,000 miles and I swear the thing has never...never left me stranded. The exhaust manifold stud popped after moving from a dry, arid area to a fairly humid one. When it popped, I drove it all week till it was fixed on the weekend. Fairly noisy like it had a blower... heh heh. It's soon to become a Taco. I will miss it.
Total miles 465,000
Original engine 353,000, only oil changes, spark plugs, and scheduled valve adjustments
Original transmission 465,000, only recommended normal service of fluid change and filter cleaning.
All original differentials, and transfer case, fluids changed every 100,000.
Changed front and rear wheel bearings at 300,000 with intent of driving it forever
Driven daily as my work vehicle as a forestry consultant in Georgia working in the Southeast US/
Everyone always seemed suprised when they found out how many miles I had but I always felt surely there was somebody who was doing the same. Surely somebody out west, I felt, was having similiar service out of their 4-Runner.
