The engine itself should be good for three times this mileage. The real things to be wary of are
and gearbox failure. There's a lot of good advice regarding care for the

If your service interval is 18K, then change the
half way between each service (9K) too. Be sure to use the correct grade.

flow and pressure to the bearings.
