I hit 200,000 miles this past Sunday. :banana:

Still on my original clutch. The car still runs like new. I did my first valve adjustment last week, and only one exhaust valve was slightly out (.012"). The rest were within spec. I still have original retainers, and haven't done anything else to the engine or tranny. Lot's of highway miles.

If you're over 200,000 miles, Post your miles and major work done!

Learn to drive stick. My dad did 300K+ on his original clutch in his 96 hatch. It can be done.

Thanks. I'll post photos later - I've been on the road a lot and the bumper is full of bugs.

Saki - thanks for the badge link. :thumbup:

What's really amazing is that I use extended Oil Change Intervals (OCIs). My last OCI was 39,500 miles. I've gone over 100,000 miles on only three oil changes. I can do this because I use a good synthetic oil (Amsoil 0W-30)and I have a bypass filter and prelube pump. My engine should last a very long time with this setup.

And as Ducatikid mentions, lots of highway miles definitely helps. Anyone can easily get 200,000 miles on this engine just with regular oil changes and a fair amount of highway miles without excessive abuse.

Interested in that Amsoil 0W-30 oil. Could I run that oil, and get up to 30k miles between oil changes.. without the bypass filter?!

Nope. The only things I have changed on this car are fluids, filters, brake pads, spark plugs, serpentine belt, the windshield and the battery. My rear bumper was kissed last year, so the rear bumper beam was also replaced, and the bumper repainted. You'd never tell it wasn't original.

IMO you could run that long if you did a lot of highway miles, since the TBN would hold up. The bypass filter removes the larger wear particles, so wear in minimized. If you chose to do this, I highly recommend that you get a used oil analysis (UOA) to make sure you're not doing any damage. If you look at my UOA in my link above, you'll see that I gradually worked my way up to a 39,500 mile OCI.
