how long does engine last
mine is at almost 145000 and it still funs like a champ!!!
my truck was at 360k... then a did a rebuild now its at 410ish, runs like new... my gfs van is at 315k all originial
My Sunfire has over 170k miles on it, original engine.
good maintenance should get it to 300k.
I'm just about to 260,000 miles. I drive 1,000 miles/week. Great car.
my 02 sunfire has 160,000 My brother had a 2000 sunfire it had 245,000 before it became a total loss accident from drunk driver.
i work on cars ever day .how long have u had the vehicle . what are your miles do u have on it right now mine had 5.8901 miles on it
It's all according to the type of motor in your sunfire i believe. The 2.4 quad 4 was never a good motor for many kms, there were at least two different 2.2 litre engines before they even came out with the ecotech in 2002, which didn't prove as good as the old 120hp 2.2.
so does that mean theres something wrong with the ecotech? Im thinking about buying a 2002 sunfire with an ecotech. It has 198000 miles.
i have 473,299 miles on a 96 Chevy Cavaleir with a Sunfire 2.2L engine, i keep the oil changed regularly, plugs and wires every year with plug gap checks every 4 months, never let the gas get below a quarter tank and this thing runs down Caddilacs on the interstate
I have the 2005 Sunfire base model with 241K miles on it. Only have replaced the clutch and alternator and fuel pump. If you care for the car, with basic maintenance they are tough as hell. I've hit a deer and drove off fine with just a fender bent. I also smashed my hand print into the back trunk lid a few months ago trying to close it in frustration.
A 6 year old thread.....Just saying.
I have a 2005 Pontiac Sun fire with 380,000 km. I believe it is all about the maintenance.
