Typically maybe 150,000 miles but taken care of it can go 300,000+ miles but a lot less if it is neglected. If you maintain it well it can go a very long time. If you want your engine to last a long time ignore the factory service interval for oil changes and change it at least every 5,000 miles or even more often.
