+1 on Jeep 4.0L I6. Sold a 92 Cherokee to my wife's cousin with 210,000 on it, original tranny etc. All it needed was a new radiator to solve an overheating problem it had. Now it is running great for him and he is hard on vehicles. 4 wheel drive still works great on it.

Worked for a Pest Control company who had a fleet of the F-150's with the 4.6 in it. Every one of those f-150's had in excess of 200K, with some in daily fleet use at 250K. The company swore by these trucks. This is in the Duluth, MN area that is tough on vehicles in the winter.

Nissan's GA16DE and SR20DE are pretty much indestructible.

I agree! Especially on the VQ30 as the VQ35 had some consumption problems.

Saturn S series engines are also strong except for oil consumption.

Saturn 1.9L SOHC and DOHC

A large number of members have original engines with 300k+ miles on them, with one guy that has over 500k over at saturnfans.com

Granted, you have to keep pouring in that oil because they eat it up! Sadly, many of these engines meet early demises from people not checking their oil.

Chevy Vortec 2.2L in the 4 banger Chevy S10s. I know people who used them for work trucks to tow/haul way more than they should have. Some of these things have 300k+ miles on them in some of the roughest terrain.

Another one that comes to mind is those Vtecs in the old Civic Hatchbacks. Just watch the ricers who drive them....they don't die.

Oh yea, those 4.9L Inline 6 ford engines from the 1992-97 F250s. Those things belong in tanks. Ford originally made them for tractors.
