2002 7.3 lifespan expectations????
have been getting a little curious about what to expect in the not so distant future with regards to my engine....
Right now I am at 172,000 miles, completely stock, oil changed between 5k & 7k miles, new air and fuel filter evry 3rd oil change....
only issues with truck have been:
1 starter replaced
1 altenator rebuilt
1 CPS replaced
1 GPR relay replaced
other than that, never had a wrench on her,,,,never found a boot loose or anything....and even with winter blend I can average between 15 & 17 MPG.
correct me if I'm wrong, but a noticable decrease in MPG's is a sign that something is not working correctly in the compression ignition engines, so as long as my MPG's stay the same, I can assume everything internal and external on the engine is working as it should.....
How far can these engines go before they are just "WORE SLAP OUT"
