143K on my 95 LX 3.8, original engine,trans, and I think the head gaskets are original too! 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:
132000 on my 96 GL. Got it 1.5 yrs back in Ohio. I dunno if the motor / tranny are original. Going good and no issues inside & out. I added a tranny cooler.
But I am skeptical having this high mileage...
i HAD 136,000 miles on my 97 Taurus. Original motor, rebuilt tranny, but it died when tons of water went up my CAI a couple weeks ago. sooo.. now my new car has almost 1,000 miles on it. i love starting over with the millage in a new car.
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.
97 FOrd Taurus 3.0 Duratec...got 100,700 exactly and still running original engine/tranny. Has had both tie rod ends replaced...the left just the other day...and that's it. getting ready to change tranny fluid...but the car still runs great. getting aligned tuesday.
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.
