The 4 cylinder 1993 Taurus will go 1,000,000 miles easily with no repairs or even an oil change. However, the 3.0 V-6 1993 Taurus will normally go about 150,000. The V-6 requires maintenence and repair occasionally.

You can say that again! Them damn 3.0 engines will never make 150K without an oil change. Bob

Two ? TWO? ?
Haven't you ever heard of environmental responsibility? What a waste! All vehicles have that red "add oil" light on the dash. Just wait till that comes on and top up as necessary
Sadly one of our customers believed this (I won't mention her gender lest it cause a flame war :-)
As for how far a 4 cylinder Taurus (or any other 4 cylinder will go) depends upon how it's driven and maintained. with basic maintenance and driven responsibly it will easily last until you're sick of it.
The engine will easily last 300,000 KMS if it has and continues to be maintained and driven by an intelligent adults.
But why would you want to keep any vehicle that long? Vehicles are after all, just expensive clothing for the vast majority of the population.
Drive it, enjoy it, deal it when you're bored with it. On to the next.

If one is running the 3.0L till the low oil pressure light illuminates, it will need work, for sure. I believe you will find that to be true of ANY engine LOL

No oil change huh?

All engines require maintenance, and eventually repair. That stroked 2.3 Tempo engine included.

Hey Fred, notice I said "1993 4 cyl Taurus". There is no such thing. If it was an 86 4 cylinder Taurus it would, of course, require maintenence. Very much so at this late date.
