Not really sure about the mileage but it's well over 150K and it's cylinder 4 that is bad. Its weird because in researching what my problem could be, it seems the majority of these are because of cylinder 4 failures. Mine happened when my daughter was out driving it like any other day and she stopped at the store. She got back in and when she tried to start it up, it was obvious there was a problem. I think it happens when it heats up and cools down rapidly. Thankfully it didn't happen when she was driving so it didn't cause any major damage or cause her to freak out and get into an accident.
