mileage doesnt matter as much as how the engine was maintained. in general, a good tell tale test is a compression test, buzz and cylinder contribution test. if those all pass and pass well then its a good bet you have a good motor. i also like to test cold start (i.e. sitting overnight), espicially if winter is around. i have nearly 300k and it runs like a champ.
the two biggest problems seem to stem from not changing or using the wrong oil, or improperly installing the air filter thus dusting the motor.
