my 2000 S-10 Blazer LT now has 139+ miles on the clock. it is in real nice shape. AZ sun is just starting to take its toll on the paint.
I like driving it in town, plates are cheap as is insurance. but it is 20 years old [I cant believe it-already-geeze I just bought 16 years ago!]
how many miles can you get out of one of these if you baby it?
thanks Rod in AZ

A lot if you take care of it. My ‘96 was semi modified. The last known miles where 236,651. A new owner traced me down. It was close 250,000. Only the transmission was a big problem. The stock one made it to 136,000. A used one went 50,000 which I had rebuilt with upgrades. It could tow a 1500 lb pop camper at 70 MPH in OD. The best advice I can give is to add an external transmission oil cooler. The transmission will like the cooler oil. Especially in a hot climate. Take care of the paint. Good wax and buffing go a long way.

Not sure on the years, but they came out w/cpfi (i think that is what it is called). It is a PLASTIC spider network of poppot valves in side the manifold. These were troublesome and if yours cracks or other problems w.the injectors...it will run rich and wash the cylinders.


My 92 TBI had 208 on it when I sold it and still ran like a champ.

My '02 only made it to 192k. It died and I didn't fix it. It only had 2 gears at the time, 2nd and R and that was a factor. But, the motor didnt run right either cuz I'd had the above problem.

Long story short...250k is often possible.

There is a fix for the poppets. You can get an upgraded spider that has actual injectors that fit in the manifold...solves a lot of problems.

The updated MPFI for '96-'01? is a big upgrade. My '96 was upgraded. It performed so much better. Better fuel economy and power. I replaced it during a lower intake manifold gasket replacement. Keep any eye out for intake leaks. You'll see water right where the head and intake meet. Another problem is heat cores leaking. In a hot climate, a bypass will work. The dash needs to be lowered to replace a heater core.
