    keeps going like the energizer bunny

    well my 94 eldo is the highest mileage car i own.
    it has 397,000 clicks on the car.
    it run fine. as a matter a fact it runs great.
    there are been some little issues with the car ( small little problems) but they were easily resolved.
    nothing major as of yet I'm so happy with all my cadillac products.
    I am going to run this car into the ground. so lets see if i can get over half a million on this car.

    Re: keeps going like the energizer bunny

    i have a 10W40 ( calls for 10W30)
    original everything ( except for some body work on the back end ,because some ass drove a snow machine into it)
    i get oil change every 2 months no matter what my mileage is unless i drive a lot on that month and then get it changed.
    the car has headers, and a after market exhaust although it doesn't sounds mean.
    it has the original tranny as well. my 2000 eldo does not !!!

    the car is my winter car. It gets driven mostly in the winter and some times in the summer.
    i just came back from some 600click trip and i kicked some butt! i avege'd 23MPG and did a avg 77.1 MPH

    Re: keeps going like the energizer bunny

    i do have some after market stuff. but nothing to do with reliability other then change of spark plugs and spark plug wires. and that is it.
    i have the only once changed my fuel injectors.
    my oil pressure light stop engine light came on. But thank goodness it was only the sensor that had a bit of oil in it. i sprayed electrical cleaner on it and cleaned it and re installed it and its 100% better.
    i think my tie rod ends are now getting old because just lately the car will walk a bit so i guess i should order some.
    but still this doesn't effect the engine and power train.

    do you flush the radiator and refill the coolant with the sealant tablets frequently?

    397,000 km = 246,684 miles

    I have 227,000 on the 4.9 in my '91 DeVille, so I'm not too far behind. She's my daily driver. Rebuilt tranny a year ago, new fuel injectors a year and a half ago. Runs strong. Don't know if any major work was done on the engine before I bought it at 199,700.

    397,000 kms = 248,000 miles. Not bad, but not as many on my 4.9: 298,000 miles or 477,000 kms.
