This will get you close: Monday, at the first start of the day, reset one of the two trip meters and restart the timer on the DIC.Is there any way to see how many hours are on the motor?
I find this subject interesting since I had a similar discussion with my son (the one that owns the demolition company) regarding engine service life based on hours.Yes hours on engine. I am just curious. My 01 Silverado had a hour meter. Just curious if my 15 cruze diesel had one.
the egr is main enemy of the engineYeah I reset my trip timing at the same time I changed out to get a rough estimate. Works out to about 4000hrs per 100k for me which is nothing for how easy of a life this motor has in this car as Robby pointed out. 300k should be a piece of cake for the main internals of this cars engine. All the other parts...who the **** knows
OK then......happy Tuesday btw.
Hours can show why a high mileage car may actually have less wear than a low mileage one. Take your average speed(26mph) for example and my 39mph average speed. Over the same 100,000 miles I accumulate 2564 hours where you hit 3846 hours.Most folks have difficulty embracing hours when discussing machines....we need to turn it into something we can relate to.
So, there is a general rule used.......take the hourmeter reading X 32...........32 is a mythical number meaning average MPH, and you may notice this is close to the number that is displayed as average speed on your DIC. (unless it's my car, mostly city, 26 mph for 29000 miles).
