The 4 cylinder 1993 Taurus will go 1,000,000 miles easily with no repairs or even an
oil change. However, the 3.0 V-6 1993 Taurus will normally go about 150,000. The V-6
requires maintenence and repair occasionally.

You can say that again! Them damn 3.0 engines will never make 150K without
an oil change.

Two ? TWO? ?

Haven't you ever heard of environmental responsibility? What a
waste! All vehicles have that red "add oil" light on the dash. Just
wait till that comes on and top up as necessary

Sadly one of our customers believed this (I won't mention her gender
lest it cause a flame war :-)

As for how far a 4 cylinder Taurus (or any other 4 cylinder will go)
depends upon how it's driven and maintained. with basic maintenance
and driven responsibly it will easily last until you're sick of it.

The engine will easily last 300,000 KMS if it has and continues to be
maintained and driven by an intelligent adults.

But why would you want to keep any vehicle that long? Vehicles are
after all, just expensive clothing for the vast majority of the
population.

Drive it, enjoy it, deal it when you're bored with it. On to the next.

Re: oh

If one is running the 3.0L till the low oil pressure light illuminates, it
will need work, for sure. I believe you will find that to be true of ANY
engine LOL

No oil change huh?

All engines require maintenance, and eventually repair. That stroked 2.3 Tempo
engine included.

Hey Fred, notice I said "1993 4 cyl Taurus". There is no such thing. If it was an 86
4 cylinder Taurus it would, of course, require maintenence. Very much so at this late
date.
