<font color='#000000'>I have a 1992 Celica GT and it has a whopping 208,000 miles on it and I want to get a basic idea of how many miles I might have left until it decides to kill over. The car has been kept in immaculate condition all 11 years and the engine has been really, really well taken care of. The car runs really great, no "pings", other noises, or loss of power, it takes the long hills great and doesn't loose any speed at all. So if I take really good care of it how many miles at maximum, might I get?</font>

<font color='#000000'>the 5sfe engine in the celi's is a great workhorse. there are plenty of 250,000 mile + examples that still run well. it all comes down to how much grief you give the engine and how well you maintain it. changing oil every 5000km is prob one of the first things and eaisest thing that helps engines, dirty oil is the death of them.
if you drive it hard it will die. soon. if you treat it well youll get heaps more out of it.</font>

<font color='#000000'>Hey thanks Frosty for clearing that "miles/kms" thing up...I got confused. We Americans usually go by miles  :)</font>
