What is the realistic life expectancy for the Chevy 4.3L V6 (1991 model)? I've got an S-10 Pickup and I do regular maintenance on the engine (oil, filters, etc) I treat it reasonably well, but don't know how well it
was treated by the previous owner (first 50K miles). The old 2.8L V6's really could only be expected to last about 75-80K. Does anybody know how the larger engines fare in the long run?
I bought mine out of a junk yard with 28K on it. It now has about 80K on it in my 1985 Toy truck. I change oil about every 3K or so and it still seems
to run very well and burns no oil. It does though blow a puff of oil smoke
on morning startup. I suspect I have a little oil seepage down the guides when it sits overnight. I think this is common on aging Chevy engines.
