Just broke 190,000 miles and went to do oil change. Pulled oil plug and some treads came with it. Just finished replacing
oil pan which is challenging and time consuming. I am fortunate to have a small hoist. Replacing both belts and tension er. Engine mounts separating and am replacing. All in all this car has been great. Best run around vehicle I have owned.
Repairs other than this have been clutch, actuator, and cleaned the shifting motor. I did all the work so the cost of maintenance has been low thanks to information on this site and some great you tube videos.

[/QUOTE Why the replacement engine? I have kept my valves adjusted (important to do) and had no major issues with
the engine.
