January 17, 2005Hey guys I was just curious does anybody have a high mileage duramax.? 100,000,200,000 or 300,000 plus miles. This engine has been out now for close to 5 years. There must be a few around. I was just curious to see if anybody had any problems in that many miles? Thanks for any responses?

January 17, 2005bored again with the ford site

if you picking a fight again go away
January 17, 2005I dont think he is picking a fight, I think he just wants to know. Thats what it sounded like to me anyway.
January 17, 200528k on my '02...Lots of mods...Zero problems!!!!!
January 18, 2005I have herd of some with close to 500,000 miles before the owner slod them. They where used to haul cars from Canada to MA.
I have 65,000 on my 02.
January 18, 2005There was a 03 or 04 3500 that was for sale around here that had 140000 mi on it It was wrecked but they said it still ran.
January 18, 2005I guess the Duramax is still too new for very many people to have a lot of miles on them yet. Probably the only ones that are even over 100k miles are hot shot trucks or something.
January 18, 2005I've seen posts on other sites of 200-300k+ miles on the LB7's with great reports of durability.
January 19, 2005I'm pretty sure I have the most aroun here.. I JUST ROLLED 4,000 ha ha ha! I need to drive more.. or just be home to drive more!
January 20, 2005I have an '05. Had it for 3-1/2 months and have 24,000+ on it now! I have had no problems with the engine unlike the other Chebbys we have - including another '05. It has excellent take off, but lacks top end power that my old PS 7.3 had. Love the Allison tranny and I keep it in tow-mode always; I like the way it downshifts like a manual which I am more used to. My GVW is about 9000 lbs. Also the new engine sucks fuel like it's free! It (and the other '05) get on a good day barely 15 mpg vs 19-20 mpg on the '03 and '04s we have. My old PS was getting 19-20 mpg with 400,000 on the odo!
