High mileage V10 What to watch out for
I'm looking at picking up another excursion, but it has high miles... about 290k. Anyone have any experience with the V10 and high mileage? It's a one owner truck, and the entire drive train is still original. Original trans, has not been rebuilt. I'm going to ask about the front end, unit bearings, ball joints and such. Anything else to check on? This would be my daily driver, and I'm guessing I would put on about 5000 miles a year.
I'm really curious how long the engine will last. I would love to do a cummins swap, but that's not realistic anytime in the near future.
Any input? Bad Idea? It's cheap enough that a motor swap down the road might still be worth it, but I don't have the time or money right now. I just want to make sure it will last a couple more years....
