Ever wonder what makes and engine reliable? Why have manufacturers like Toyota and Honda have really reliable engines while some others don't? how come companies like BMW can make some engines that are really reliable and some engines that don't make it 100,000 miles? in this episode of Bumper 2 Bumper we take a look at what engines, that have proven to be reliable, have in common, why not every modern engine is built that way, and happens when you put the most reliable aspects we can find into 1 engine. Is your engine on our list of reliable motors? You'll have to watch to find out.

One thing you forgot to mention is the ratio between displacement and power-delivery: For example: The expected livetime of an engine with 2 Litres displacement generating 60 hp shurely is higher than a comparable 2 Litre displacement with turbocharger, multi-point injection, ECU and other features getting the engine to generate 200 hp. Another huge contributor to engine stability is easy construction: Less parts means less ways to failure so the most reliable engines I know are 2-Stroke diesel engines like Lanz Bulldog: Huge displacement, fewer parts, lower redline und no complex technology.

That part on engine cycles is valid. Before the Crown Vics were phased out for explorer by the police and Nissans for NY taxis. I would see many of them past 1million miles. The vehicles would run all day and the Ford 4.6 was a fairly well built engine. I even heard some hit 1.5 mill.

Most important thing to getting an engine to be reliable. Ignore manufacturers service intervals that say 20k miles between oil changes is ok, yes it may be fine for the low mileage owner, but if you want the engine still going strong several hundred K later, change it every 10k or less and change the filter every single time.

Tiirshak Pred 11 dnevi
Well, everybody knows engine oil lubricates, but that's not how it cools by reducing friction, allot of people overlook that it's a very important part in cooling too, since engine oil is in the combustion chamber area, it's in direct contact with the hottest parts of an engine, it cools by transferring heat away from components, and accounts for up to 40 % of heat removal.

Well, I don't have one of those "untouched" engines because I like to tinker. I go through my 68 Corolla's engine every 250-300K miles whether it needs it or not. It was 20 years old when I bought it for $300 and ran fine but no idea what the actual miles were. I had never touched a car engine before beyond maintenance. I bought a Haynes manual. Best $12 I ever spent. One day I was out runnin the back roads and the crankshaft pulley bolt broke off, key was lost. Found a guy with a welder nearby and just had him weld the pulley in place. Well dang, can't find another crankshaft but I found a 1200 short block. Basically the exact same engine but 3/16 - 1/8 inch taller deck and stroke. So it's been 1200 instead of 1100 for the last 15 years. Bonus!...putting an 1100 head on a 1200 block puts it closer to 10-1 instead of 9-1 compression. riprip. I've rebuilt the entire car at one time or another, mostly because I'm mean to it...even making one good transmission out of two with different problems. One just wore out, the other had the shaft get bent when a u-joint broke. Broke the case too. Good guts though. Perfect synchros. I make my own cables for it, clutch is cable operated, throttleIt's been a lot of fun. 2 door,1600ish lbs, 75-80 hp, 4 speed, 4:22 rear. It's limited slip but the slip is so limited it acts like a posi. It's even got 2-60 A/C It's due for a little love and paint now.

!.9tdi easily over 300,000 miles ???? I've had 3x 1.9tdi and if ridden well and with respect they can reach easy a million miles. I have driven 1,2 million km with these 3 cars and never changed a water pump. Never had a real engine problem These 90's engines were / are bulletproof and vastly better than the modern complex junk engines with their gigantic carbon pollution. And easy to repair. With verry cheap cost for the parts (Nederland)

1 million mile engines: Older diesel Mercedes Benz motors, Lexus 1ufz series engines LS400/430, Honda motors, Toyota motors, older Chevy and Ford V8s. All great engines.
shonuffisthemaster Pred 17 dnevi
good video although i have a correction to make, older engines (like early 1900's) sometimes did not have a seperate block and head / head gasket, all the assembly of the valve train was done from the crank case. granted, the design of the valve train was significantly different from modern engines.

8:40 bandaids must be sterile. When they are not you can get an infection by trying to cover whatever wound you might have. Manufacturers put them in sealed packages to ensure that there isn't anything growing on it after they have sterilized it and sold it; its a guarantee that you won't get an infection if you put it on. As with all packages, they can begin to develop leaks and much like a food expiry date, that date is when the manuf. is like hey, there might be some nasties in there now, I wouldn't use it.
