Just Turned 160,000 Miles



Here is your Toyota car information!

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?

ya mine is a 95, i have put prolly a little under 20,000K on it in the past year, i bought it with 130,000

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

160K is a great milestone, now go for 250k! My 95 DX has little over 155k

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 am hoping to get to 200K miles without any significant problems.

I think it can be done!

well i would say with the recomonded maitence it could easily see 300K, i mean look at some of the old corollas, ive seen some that where 300K+ i drove a 74 that had 350K on the engine and it was still peppy

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.

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

So you did 13,207.1 miles in one year?

 

That means you do about 36 miles a day?

wish i could only travel 36 miles a day, in the past month i have been averaging around 900 miles a week, but now taht month is over and i can sit and relax

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.

so like a tank of gas last you a lifetime, very nice ha

Ok - I thought you only had the car for a year and the 13,207.1 was a years total miles.

 

So if you have had it for 895 days, that means about 895/365=2 years, 5 months, 15 days?

Yeah, plus the current tank of gas I am on which is still going. I have 170.8 miles on the tank and last filled up on 12/03/06.

So 13,207.1 miles (895 days of recorded driving) + 170.8 miles (current tank, 12/03/06 to 12/20/06 and still going) = 13,377.9 miles through.

895 days + 17 (the difference between 12/03/06 to 12/20/06) or 912 days.

To be more accurate on the calculation:

(160,000 miles - 143,522 miles) / (13,377.9 miles / 912 days) = approximately 1,123 days or 3 years and 27 days.

My Odometer reading is 143,522 miles (just went outside and checked) so that means I've been driving the car since it had an odometer reading of 130,144 miles on it. Therefore, my dad put 130,144 miles on the car from 1993 to 2004 before he gave it to me, and I have put 13,377.9 miles on the car from when he gave it to me in 2004 to today.

Good calculations. Take a few more trips in 2007 and you will reach the 160,000 mile mark sooner.

Probably took you a lot of time that could have been put to better use, such as learning how to spell, or to type better!

 

 

Wow, 160k miles! It seems like a generation away for me. I bought my 98' Corolla at 50,800 miles back in May 05'. It's up to about 62,400 now. In 20 months, I've put on 11,600 miles.

Calculations:

Average miles per year: 6,960

Average miles per week: 133.5

Average miles per day: 19

Tank Capacity: 11.3 Gallons

Estimated average MPG: 29.5

Best Average Calculated: 32.2

Driving Conditions: 50% stopless driving, 50% stop-and-go

Bad Driving habit(s): Fast acceleration

Miles on full Tank: 333.35

Time per fill-up: once every 17 days (estimate)

At my current stats, it would take me little over 14 years to hit 160k, around the end of 2020. To hit 300k would require me about 34 years and 1.5 months, or around February of 2041. I'll be a 54 year old man by then (I'm 20 now). I hope I'll be able to hover convert my car by then and add Mr. fusion to the engine.

As for whether 160k is a good milestone, I don't know. I always thought that 100k was "the big moment", when a car passes its prime, but what do I know! It seems like everyone is driving these Corollas to their last breathe. I know of a 1988 Honda Civic in my old neighborhood that has 360k miles on it! The guy had to get a new engine for it at 280k. I suppose there is no real limit to any car's lifespan since parts can always be replaced, but rather there is a point at which the driver says it's no longer worth it to spend any more money to maintain their car. The point at which you need an engine swap is usually the killer for even the most reliable cars.

i have a 2000 corolla with 152,000 and just put cold air and exhaust on it and it runs like a dream. that corolla engine is the shi.t

well hmm when you are on someone elses computer that is a laptop and you are used to a desktop, typing is a little different, plus it was almost 3am, and i had to do 170 miles in one night because my part time business that i do for extra money is running parts all over my state. I make money for driving around. hmm what else could i have been doing to spend my time. sitting on a computer making 50 post in an hour? sorry to get rude bikeman, but that was kinda of a rude comment to make
