Re: Life expectancy of v-10
200K miles should be easy if the vehicle is properly maintained. I traded my
1997 Expedition with the 5.4L at 149,000 miles and the engine was in great
shape. I belong to an Expedition mailing list and a number of members have
more than 200K on 5.4L engines. Most of the taxis in my area are ex-police
Crown Victorias with 4.6L Modular Motors. I am sure some of the older ones
are over 300K. Occasionally I see some oil smoke out of the rear (mostly
early 90's CVs) but most don't smoke at all.
