I am interested in knowing approximately how long my car will last for, in order to determine how much money to invest in it.
Its a 2000 mazda protege 1.6L with 250,000km
typical rust patches around the wheel wheels
Did black undercoating past few years.
Lots of carbon buildup on the valve guide—> should I seafoam?
Installed new timing belt at 240700 (never installed water pump)
Power steering pump squeals when I am taking the corner:
Exhaust is good : no leaks , runs relatively quiet.
I am a very soft driver --> I accelerate slow and brake softly…I dont put unnecessary stress on the car.
Feel free to ask whatever other questions you want
