It really depends on your maintenance practice's. You can get upward of 20,000 hrs or more before an overhaul. But if you maintain the engine and follow the service procedures take oil samples ,notice something is not right. with more hrs you will have a good idea what is going on and when something needs to be done like a major repair. Something as simple as a failed injector or fuel pump could cause excessive fuel in the oil and if it goes unnoticed you will be doing and over haul at 6,000 hrs .ECT. Just have to maintain and be proactive. Please dont forget to rate my service.
