I just saw a thread over on the other site...and I though I would post here.

Just rolled over 105,305 miles in 2333 hours...for a lifetime average speed of 45.14 mph. I though I would have been faster...since I never drive slower than 80...but I must idle too much! LOL

45 MPH for the life of the vehicle!!! Talk about a LOT of highway driving.!!! I am barely into the 30's in my Lamborghini and I drive that mostly on the highways over 180 MPH ! You have no diea how fast that really is over a long period of time. THat means virtually NO city driving, probably 99.2% highway, and 0.8% city. **** MAN!! [laugh] [laugh]

Question: How do I find engine hours information on my 3rd Generation 24 valve?
Answer: When the trip odometer reset switch button is pressed and held for longer than about six seconds with the ignition switch in the On position and the engine speed message from the PCM is zero, the trip odometer information will be momentarily displayed, then the engine hours information will be displayed. The VFD must be displaying the odometer information when the trip odometer reset switch button is pressed in order to toggle to the engine hours display. The engine hours will remain displayed for about thirty seconds, until the engine speed message is greater than zero, or until the ignition switch is turned to the Off position, whichever occurs first.


From the Tech facts section .... [coffee]

Turn the key to on...then hol the odometer button down till it pops up.

You must start with it on odometer...not trip or it will just reset the trip.

If you would continue the way your are going now at 10,000 hrs you would have over 442,000 miles.

I am at 34.71 avg. miles with 30132 miles and 868 hrs. I'd these engines last over 10-15 thousand hrs.

2,434hrs and 83k, is that allot of hrs for that mileage,cquestad has 2333hrs with 105k??? I also have run 315's and 35's for many miles without recalibrating. Do you think my mileage is at all acurate? Or is it allot for my hrs?

I'm at 2128 hours for 83,443 miles for an average of 39.2mph. I had my computer recalibrated for the 305/70-17 tires as soon as I put them on.

you must idle allot. I leave mine running allot, so if your that much off, you have been napping in your truck at lunch with the A/C on!



So what is allot?

And how many hrs, on average do you guys think we can get outa these 3rd gens?

3473 hours for 145448 miles gives 41.879642959976965159804203858336mph but I had the speedo disconnected for about 3000 miles and lots of RAD time = no miles put on. With those "extra miles" I'd get to about43.190325367117765620501007774259.

Most of this is Towing and I live in a Province where the maximum speed limit is 55 and the norm is 50mph. [coffee] ks

Those numbers are great and all, but I don't see what good being so vague is going to do for you. I mean, only taking it to the novemtillionths place? Talk about slacking! Come on, give us some data we can work with !!![laugh] [laugh]

Roll over Pete, If my average speed was that low I'd sell my truck and get a shopping cart as it would be faster[laugh] . Yep these numbers need to be accurate otherwise the rounding errors could cause a warranty issue.[coffee]
Just say not to idling.....Idling is for Chevy 6.5's and Fords. ks

Yeah... I know I idle lots...[redface] Like this evening.... while servicing and fueling my tractor, I run my headlights as well as a 12 volt flood light mounted to a magnet with 30' of chord that plugs into my trailer conection. Then theres the laptop with the 12v\120\ inverter. Adds up to 1/2 - 1 hr depending on how involved I get. [dummy] I almost always idle up to 1000-1200 rpm's thanks to my handy dandy pvc against the seat to the pedal device. :cool: Everything said, my truck is just another tool which helps me get my job done. It gets used hard, gets dirty, and even has a few scratches. :eek: It also more than pays for itself...which is extra money in my pocket. :D If it were the other way around and cost me money to run it, I would have never bought it.

Yep, Its not so much the idle as the low rpm idle. I met a guy at my normal diesel shop who had over 650k km on his 04 and he never turned it off unless it was gonna sit for more than 3 hours. If he stayed at a hotel in winter....he'd leave it going all night. The only engine parts he's had to replace are waterpumps....number 3 he's on....I'm on #2 and I probably need a PS pump. He tows RV's for a living and he's about 80. Hey my truck is still a work truck too. Every time I tow a load it saves me $200 to $1000 bucks so it has already paid its self off 3 times over. That's why I don't mind spending some time and money on it. [guitar] ks
