I"m obsessed with trying to acquire the longest life expectancy (most miles)out of my diesel.I"m a contractor so I carry out many hauling ,towing etc.What is the greatest miles anyone has actually acquired or watched out of the 6.5 trucks,and what have actually they done to acheive this sucess.With the exemption of a (warranteed inj. pump) mine has been trouble cost-free for the last 40,000 miles.I ask because I dont watch alot through over 250,000,and also i"ve gained that out of a 305 for christ"s sake.This is a better truck though.I have actually viewed some guy"s that insurance claim 400,000 in below though.That would certainly be terrific.

As these days I have 299,867 km on the clock. This point drives prefer it has actually 50,000 and I am very happy as a whole. Only repairs to engine have been the typical maint. items, one IP and also relocated FSD. Other than that, I spend money on the fun stuff, favor exhaust and turbomaster. When this point ultimately goes, I will redevelop and also go at it again. With the cost of new DI diesels, you need to work it pretty tough to obtain the worth that a 6.5td will conveniently provide you. smile.gif

Right currently, I am 195,200 miles through essentially no hiccups. I went with a few oil senders last year, but I"ve never before had to have the engine functioned on yet in 12 years.From what I"ve seen on this board from other owners, I think I still have actually fairly a couple of miles left in the old fella....
Just over 230,000 miles and I suppose to obtain 300,000+ miles from my 6.5 if the truck doesn"t die a slow-moving cancerous fatality first.

My 94 will certainly rotate 500,000 km this week, The body is in good form so I"m hopeing to store it going for an additional 200k or so.

I am at 377,000kilometres aside from the motor at 145,000km , injectors at 178000, and also warranty IP at 182000kilometres my truck is now going solid with the aid of all you guys on the page; and also I intend to store it that way. I do not really count the daily wear and also tear items, that list would be endmuch less dur to gaining it back in primo form compared to once I bought it.

Thanks for the replys.Very great to view the high miles you guy"s have actually gotten,I hope to carry out the exact same.I hear so a lot negativity about GM diesels,(mostly from ford or dodge guy"s)renders me want to prove "em wrong.Also renders me not afrassist to go past the 120,000 mile warranty on the pump,(presently at 115,000).Runs choose a peak.

My "93 made it to 337,800 before we blew a head gasket. That was the initially repair I ever before had on it besides rebuilding the starter and also alternator. Follow a rigid constant maintenance schedule and also keep the coolant and exhaust temps in inspect and also a 6.5 will certainly treat you right!! smile.gif We"ve pulled a 4 horse gooseneck with living quarters for 200,000+ of those miles and also relocating mobile residences and also hauling hay on a 40" float.Currently in the middle of a reconstruct given that we were in the middle of her anyway!
