Cat c7 engine life expectancy

I just put a cat in my truck. It has the cat c7. I got it for 150 because of it having a single turbo. The question is will it last me 150,000 miles? I just cant figure out how cat c7 engines work. They are different than other engines, but that is just the cat c7s. I am only asking about the engine.

A couple of things I've read online and they seem conflicting. I have a 2004 Chevy 1500 5.3 liter. I'm concerned that the engine may be shot. I am going to buy it for 150 (which seems a good price to me for a single turbo) but I've heard that cat c7s will last about 70k or 50k miles.

So basically, I don't really know what to think about how it works.

I was going to buy a new engine. Now I will just have to deal with it for 150. The reason I ask about cat c7 is because I am not sure if I can expect the same life span as the other engines because of how it's made. I really just dont know. Any input?

I have a 2004 chevy 2500 4.3 litre and just replaced my tranny, I don't know if it is cat c7 or not but mine was put together by chevy, so I have a lot of faith that chevy made it right. Also it has a lot of hp on pump gas, if you are a diesel engine guy this is not going to be your cup of tea.

i own a cat c7 in a 2006 ford expedition (it was in a 2004) and i can assure you it has performed great for me and has had no mechanical problems whatsoever. it has been very reliable for me. and you will not be disappointed with the performance as it is very quiet and very smooth.

I am not a diesel engine guy at all. I will just be putting a 4.3 in my truck. I am just wondering about the engine life span because it's an older engine. I know I am paying more than I should, but I would like to know the expected life span of the engine and if it will last me 150,000 miles.

I would put money on the fact that it will last for years and years if it has been properly maintained. Just be sure to replace the timing belt every 10,000 miles and then keep the water temp at 170 degrees or less. If the water temp gets too low and there is no water in the coolant, you will find out very quickly and expensively what you have bought.

Do you know where I can find the timing belt replacement procedure? I have looked everywhere and there is just so much that I cannot find.

A friend had the same thing happen on his cat c7. It is a single turbo model, and it is a very different engine than the others. It is also much more efficient. He has an 02 2500 with the 4.6l, and he has it now and he only has about 60k on it and he is very pleased with it. I would recommend it.

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with that. I know plenty of guys that have bought the same engine with the cat that say it has performed very well. They say that if you do the regular maintenance, and have it professionally tuned, it will perform very well.

I do not have any experience with the single turbo. I have a 2002 Chevy 1500 4.3 litre with the cat c7. It has never let me down and I have put more than 50,000 miles on it since I have had it. It is an excellent engine, and is very smooth.

I don't think the cat c7 will let you down in 150k miles. If you go to a reputable shop, and they are doing regular maintenance on it, it will perform for years. The only thing that I can think of, is the single turbo engine is a little more complicated.

In my opinion, if you have had your truck since it was new, it's a good time to have a new engine, because it will have very little miles on it, and you can get it for about the same price as a truck with more miles on it. If you have had it for a year or two, it probably will have more miles on it, and you will have to pay more.

You have probably heard of the "big four" engine companies, right? Well, they have been around since before World War II. The only reason they are called the "big four" is because they make almost every other manufacturer's product. GM, Ford, Chrysler, and Daimler make engines from one of the four companies.

GM is the first one, followed by Ford, Chrysler and Daimler. I don't know if I am pronouncing them right. All of them are German. In most cases, when you see an engine on a new vehicle, it is the engine made by one of the four companies.

I personally like the V6, and you can get it for a very good price. When it is time to change, you can change it for a reasonable price, but I don't think the cat c7 is as reliable as it is a V6.
