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

    In the 1960s I worked on a Kenworth truck that had over 3,500,000 miles on it; almost all on the Alaska Highway between Seattle and Fairbanks. It had averaged over 600 miles/day on the road since the day it was built. You guys have a long way to go.

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

    I have read this whole thread and I seen the numerous years of different Cadillac with high miles, which is excellent! But I did not see one person post about a 97 SLS with high miles. I would think there would be someone out there with a high mileage 97 SLS. Mine has only 68000 miles and so far I have changed the Water pump belt and the Tensioner and the FPR. I just love this car!

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

    Did I already post in this thread? Don't know...

    02 Deville - 158,000
    01 Eldo - 81,000

    Both cars have the entire original engne compartment, with the exceptioin of an A/C compressor on the Deville, and a battery in the Eldo.

    For all I know, the D may have the factory plugs still on. Thing runs fine, 22+ mpg, never a miss....

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

    Just met a guy with a 1990 Geo Metro with 577,000 miles on it. Says his only engine repair was a front seal. (I suspect he had replaced alt and starter too.)

    He also had a little spiral notebook with notes on every thing he has ever done to this. Says he paid 6000 for it in 1990 and expected it to be a disposable car.

    Half a million miles in a Metro isn't a record, it's a lifetime in purgatory.

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

    I bought my '93 STS with 121,000 miles, with a spun rod bearing. I replaced the North* with a certified used , identical. I did re-newed everything on & around the engine & under hood. The replaced engine now has 130,000 and runs perfect for the last year & a half.

    I should ask Alan Johnson of CHRF if he saw the cause of the spun rod, after giving him the old engine.

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

    when I bought mine it had 115,000 and a blown head gasket, a nice project car. I have always liked the body lines of my 97 STS, on 20s it looks much better...

    My dad has a 97 Eldo with 167k on it. It still runs strong. I keep telling him to buy a new one... but he says "if and a'int broke, don't fix it".
