longevity of parts/bits

Just a query (well, you know me...)
How long do things like turbos, starter motors, and such last? and
when do things like PAS pumps start giving up the ghost? and what about
Big End bearings and such?
No real reason, just curious (trying to plan my next three month's car
expenses from my salary in advance...)
Regards

longevity of parts/bits (Chat)

Renate me old mucker.

How long is a piece of string? How long does man live?
My last commuter was a petrol Astra which I sold with 300k on the clock (bought new) and apart from normal servicing I replaced one wheel bearing and a water pump-who would believe that!
You just don't know mate!
Look after the TLC, ENJOY but most of all-DON'T worry-Be Happy. There could be a song in there!

Hello Renate,
They usually last longer than you expect and then they fail at the
most inopportune moment. Renate - you worry too much!

As the other have said it is very much a case of how long is a peice of string.
If you carry out the regular servicing as well as some extra preventative maintenace you should get 100s of thousand miles out of it.
Yes you will get failures, but more often than not they will be down to abuse or poor maintenance.
A survey on another list showed some 80 series doing 400,000 miles without any major failures.
Cheers,
Julian

Well, that's alright then - no one can accuse me of not looking after
my mate mi'ol LC !
I'm all for preventative maintenance - even before it needs
it...Abuse? Poor maintenance....longevity...so I can expect a few more
months then for these bits?...

Hope so, but due to unplanned family visit later this week I may need
