Just Turned 160,000 Miles

Recommended Posts

My 1994 Corolla has just turned over 160,000 miles. Is that of any significance?

I have the 1.8L 7A-FE engine in the 7th generation beauty.

I purchased it from e-Bay about 1 year ago and it had 140,000 miles on it.

I have replaced the tires, hubcaps, mirrors, door handles, and corner lights.

It has always started and drives great. I do check the oil frequently and add a quart about every 1,000 miles.

It is very dependable and is my daily commuter.

Here's a picture of it;

ha mine just hit 160K a few days ago

Yours is a year newer. How many miles have you put on it in the past year?

Did you buy it new or used?

How many miles were on it when you bought it?

I have about 143,400 miles on my 7A-FE, 13,207.1 of those miles were mine and the rest were my dads.

 

It would take me approximately 3 years and 29 days to reach 160,000 miles given my current average miles per day.

 

;)

 

(160,000 miles - 143,400 miles) / (13,207.1 miles / 895 days) = Approximately 1,125 days or 3 years 29 days

ahh i dont even wanan think about 250K im gonna be scared enough to open up my engine once i decide to rebuild it, lets see ive put about 30K on my car myself and those are pretty hard miles, at 250K my engine would prolly want to punch me in the face

I think Corollas have a pretty reliable engine.

I have seen one at the junkyard that had a hole in the block.

It was totally broken through and must have been caused by a broken connecting rod or clamp for the connecting rod that broke.

I don't know what may have been the cause of that, except maybe bolt loosened up, or overreving to the point of breakage.

I think the majority of failed engines are caused by poor lubrication (oil).

A normal engine can probably last 300K+ miles.

:P

So you did 13,207.1 miles in one year?

That means you do about 36 miles a day?

No, your missing the quantity in the equation: (13,207.1 miles / 895 days).

 

13,207.1 miles in 895 days, or about 14.8 miles per day.
