    Re: High Mileage Northstar Thread: Who can beat me?

    sorry for the late reply i didnt see the post, I use nothing but green/ Yellow, green is better cause if you get a coolant leak there easier to spot.

    ----------

    i just acquired a major coolant leak found out the person that owned it before me i guess was pretty cheap because the crossover has no seals just minor silicone, this is lovely.... ill probably be pulling that engine this spring and rebuilding it.

Last talking to him he said 260k but I'm guessing it's got to be closer to 265k now with the distance he drives to work. Original window sticker in glove box says $53,000!! Original owner was a doctor and paid in full. My window sticker says $45,000 on my 01 Seville base with back-up sensors and floor at package. (About 3k in upgrades from factory.)
    Edit/update:

    I just talked to the guy yesterday and he said it just rolled over 260k this week and showed me a pic of gauges with mileage. Also said he put in 4 wheel bearings within last two years.

    Saw a caddy on CL for sale with 420k miles in ad text. I looked at pic of dash and it said 240k. Just a typo.

    Wow a lot of high mile cars! Just good luck or a lot of other parts to get there? Buy them with higher miles? Was the Audi a timing chain by chance?

    Re: High Mileage Northstar Thread: Who can beat me?

    My completely stock 1994 cadillac deville 4.9 has 245,000 miles on her ,doesnt leak oil or uses oil but the steering seems to be bipolar sometimes i can turn the wheel with my pinky and other times I have to use all my might to turn a corner but hey i drive this car until it goes out it.I have overheated the engine multiple time and even drove ten miles home without the seperintine belt i was lucky that time.My engine overheated on the coldest day of the year my luck,it was -6 out and 2 in morning.I just pour some antifreeze and hyperlube and it was good to go never had a problem since.The only complaint about the car is that i have to use premium fuel because it starts to ping when run at 180F or higher and it hurts me just hear my car sound like that.

    4.9L is not a northstar and it does require premium or it will ping/detonate
