1997 Ford Escort 2.0
Bought the car with 117K on it. At 171K I installed a new head. This is a picture under the valve cover 100K later. Since the head installation the car has had nothing but Shell white bottle 5w-20 and QS3600 or FL-400S filters. I think it looks pretty good.
Have you had the timing chain and guides done on that car yet? VVT actuator? Chain looks good and taught.
The car has been good to me; I haven't changed any major component on the vehicle; It still serves me well that I hope it serves me in the future too.
My early OCI at 3K probably has something to do with it I think; oil is cheap and I plan keep on doing the same.

2006 Pontiac Vibe AWD, 90K miles, ex-rental car. Popular belief here is that rental companies service cars by the book. I am not so sure about that though, due to what I saw under the valve cover and took a picture of. Carfax did show a few Jiffy Lube visits though.
