Trasmission/engine life of the SVX
Posted 10 January 2005 - 08:54 PM
Does anyone know the average lifespan (in miles) of a '92 SVX engine and tranny. Just to let all that don't know, well, know, I'm hoping to purchase a 92 SVX LsL with 191K on it. I belive it's all original but I could be mad wrong.
My point, could anyone give me a rough estimate on how many miles an original engine and transmission last in a 92 SVX LsL if it were serviced regularly and was kept in average shape by a dedicated driver. Thanks everyone!
(Is 200K really just breaking it in Kingblob? Or where you being a little exageratory? Is that a word? well, you know what I mean;))

This all depends on how the person serviced and took care of the car. I know of some SVX's that have 130,000 miles plus, with original trannys. I know of a few that have re-builds put in them every 30,000 miles. The most important thing is who works on you car and what credentials they have along with routine maintence by the owner.

Now that you mention the tranny re-build, the guy did say that it was serviced not too long ago, conidering the fact that to torque converter is brand new that could definitely be why the cost was so much! This is nuts! I can't wait to sit in that drivers seat^_^. I really hope I can convince my parents that it's an amazing find and buy! Thanks again you guys! I'll give everyone a report when I take it for a test drive!
