2000 Pitch Black ZTS
188,000 miles

Problems:
Ignition Key Module
Ignition Coilpack
Fuel Pump
Crankcase Ventilation hose (rear) busted a hole right at the INT MAN connection

All of the above problems happenned right around 150,000 and I haven't had any trouble since.

The other big issue I've had is with the rear wheel bearings. There are two main root causes for this.
1) No cotter pin on the spindle nut.

These nuts are good for about 3 or 4 removals before they start backing out and causing bearing failures. When idiots work on your car and do a "free brake inspection" they will take off your spindle nut and not tell you about it. Be wary of this when you need a wheel alignment or new tires. Recently, I've been putting lock-tite on my spindle when I remove the nut, and that seems to help.

2) I used to use Auto-Zone wheel bearings. NEVER buy anything safety related from Auto Zone!


Good luck, my fellow high-milers!
