Depends how it has been looked after. The TS engine can last to well over 200,000 miles as my 155 proves You will need a headgasket in this time mind. Probably fairly soon but it's all a bit hit and miss. Could do 160,000 before it needs one. Could have already done one in the past at 119k

Three year correct coolant changes prolong long life of aluminium components Etc. IMHO? Need the right stuff as recommended?
