The timing chain went on mine at 115,000. I went ahead and replaced the whole motor with a newer one. So right now the car itself has 120,000. My dad's on the other hand has only had to replace the alternator and water pump. His car is a 96 as well, and its has 150,000 miles. So if the car is well maintained it will last a long time.

tis better to keep your mouth shut, and everyone think you a fool,
than to open it and remove all doubt

FYI.. We are talking about the 2.2 OHV. Not the Eco.

My 99 Cav had 273,000 miles on it. When I traded it in I think they gave my $5 for it.

97 2.2 5spd with 68,313 bought it with 54,xxx and ive put a alternator on it, besides that no problems...

u say you have been very abusive to your car??? u mean you have ran it at the track a few times ect...or are you one of those people who just floor it all the time??? if u just floor it all the time and run the piss out of it, dont exspect more then 140 thousand miles out of it.... if you take it easy most of the time u should get at least 150 thousand out of that engine trans combanation, they are the 2 most reliable (and slowest) put into the 3rd gen j's. <br>

96 4 speed, 204,731 miles, orginal tranny, and I beat the hell out of it. The only major thing is the timing chain tensioner a couple times (and again). The motor's coming out permanently soon, but I think it's still in good enough shape to go into my go cart shortly. <br>

My buddy's got a 96 2.2 Sunfire that has 176k on it. Only mods are a pulley set, a muffler on stock piping, and no intake (open TB). He hasnt changed the oil for 7,000 miles I think. It's got the wrong spark plugs in it too. But damnit, it still kicks @!#$ every day. It did blow a head gasket at about 144k but all in all it's a good motor.
