Hello and welcome to
Is this a V6 or V8 engine? How many miles on the vehicle in question.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
V8 108,000
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Ok the V8 engine is very strong and we don't see a lot of major issues. Of course this is true on vehicles that are properly maintained. I see engines go over 150k. The biggest problem is the timing chain tensioners fail. I also see cooling system problems that creep up around 100k.
