1 million mile goal, no more

Was trying to hit the 1 Million mile record but not going to make it anymore on the original engine! Burnt a valve at 680k but still had 70-90psi compression cylinder 3. But this time #2 cylinder no compression. Plug was oil fouled, start smoking at warm up in the morning about 6 months ago. That might of been a sign. Plan to drop in the spare CVT motor in it

what oil have you been running? And what's you're driving conditions like?

edit: also seeing that odometer makes me feel like I have no miles on my 2000, lol. I'm only at 274K miles.
I ran Mobil 1 at first, then switched to AMS oil at 106k. Driving condition 80mile drive to work, 1.5-2hrs drive with traffic.
Think of all the many thousands of dollars you saved by not buying that Tesla. Congratulations!!
Lol, with all that money I save in the Cooke jar I bought a Tesla!

@96gmc Did you do the valve clearance check/maintenance as specified?
Interested in if one got tight/slack?
I did valve adjustment at 725k.
Sorry, I meant what oil weight do you run. So lots of freeway driving?

I think for him makes a bit of sense because he has a spare motor. Even if he fixes his original motor might be nice to be able to take his time on it with having the spare motor in his car to get him around?
I used 0w20 up to 410k the. I recall getting some blowby so switch to 5w20.
