143K on my 95 LX 3.8, original engine,trans, and I think the head gaskets are original too! :eek: To keep her I going I change the oil every 3K with Motorcraft 5w-30 and a FL-400S filter. The trans gets treated with a Motorcraft mercon 5 flush every 12k miles. I don't like the way she shifts when hot but she doesn't slip! :clap:

I own a 1999 Ford Taurus LX. It currently has 125,000 miles original tranny and engine. I just had to replace the head gaskets (took 3 days of hard work), but other than that it's been fine. I'm about to have to replace my rack yet again. I don't know how it happened but there is mucho play in the right side ONLY. It actually makes a clunky noise as I'm going down the road. It's not the sway bar links, I checked them, they need to be replaced, but they aren't broken.

Just this week I passed 110,000 miles on my 1994 Taurus GL. I am the second owner. I am guessing I have put 30,000 of those miles on green machine.
The 3.0 V-6 as well as the transmission is original issue.

Unless I hit the numbers on the Mega Millions, lets hope for another good 100,000 miles. :lol2:

Passed 100,000 last week. I built the car from a salvage at 30,000. '96 LX, 3.0 Duratec, original tranny. The only problem I have had after the initial build:

1) Alternator, 2 within 2 years

2) Power windows, driver

3) blend door actuator on the AC controls

4) Water pump and hoses

5) Brakes shoes and pads

6) Left head light

I hope to run it another 100k. The car has awesome power for a stocker, it does whistle a little at speed, and there is a slight clunk going over bumps that I haven't chased down yet, maybe struts or something.
