I'm at 216000 on my 95. I pulled a compression test on it not long ago and surprisingly found it was a little over 150 to 160 between all cylinders. My engine has seen on two separate occasions a UIM and a LIM failure. When the UIM failed I was driving to work in the middle of the night on a call in. I noticed my engine temps getting hot, I didn't know what else to do but to turn the heater on to take some heat off the engine. I don't know if that really helped but I was lucky any way you look at it. I drove about 15 miles with it like that. I had know idea about this common problem with these cars, I thought like most, that the headgasket was gone. This happened at 130K. At or around 180K is when my LIM started leaking, had I known to do it at the same time that the upper went I would have saved myself from this happening.
My tranny is showing it'* age
At 205K part of 4 gear'* thrust washer was in the pan. I just dropped the pan at 215K and found more
It looks like more than half of it has fallen out and it is now noticeable sometimes as it shifts into 4th gear. Hopefully it will last a while longer, I really enjoy driving this car.
