What is the engine life expectancy of the V6 3.5L DOHC 195 engine?
Could you let me know where I can go online to read from several credible sources about the life expectancy of this engine in a Sedona? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
best.thing is manitance
Unfortunately, there is no way to determine the life expectancy of a vehicles engine. Small/Large failures happen all the time that could vastly reduce the life of any engine. Once the consumer takes ownership all bets are off.
Your engine is a key part of your drivetrain. If the manufacturer has a 10 year 100000 mile warranty on the drivetrain they expect it to last longer than that since they couldn't stay in business constantly replacing engines. There are two caveats. The first assumes the owner has the proper maintenance performed (oil changes) and the second is the statistical possibility of bad product coming off the production line (usually 1 in 1000 or 1 in 10000 - certainly a high enough ratio not to ruin the company's profit margin).
I am driving a 2006 Kia Sedona. I I'm the original owner. I have never changed the plugs or wires or done any major motor repairs. I have 270000 miles and the car runs great.
I owe a 2003 Kia Sedona and just got 270,000 miles. never changed coils or anything else, however I do oil change as needed. Engine still running great with the exception that it has began to leak oil. Not sure if its time to get a new vehicle or invest around 600.00 and get a new gasket replacement and make a tune up. Any suggestions please, thank you.
