    Default Longevity of a chevy 350

    I just got my Silverado a few months ago and was curious about how durable they are. Id like to know how long a well-cared for tbi 350 would last generally? Any feedback would be appreciated.

    I've had to trucks with the 350 engine in it, one ran over 200,000 miles. The one I have now is at 170,000 miles and running strong as ever.

    My '94 Sierra had 187,000 on it and was still running strong when it got totalled, my '97 Suburban had 200,000 plus on it when I sold it to a friend, he has 225,000 on it now and it still runs great. Keep the oil changed and don't run it hard and they will last a long time!
