132,000 miles, 13 years old as well (I've only had it for 1.5 years and about 20,000 miles) and seems to run good. Agree w/ above, change my oil every 3,000 miles (about 3 months), Castrol GTX dino 10W30 and the hated Fram PH-16.

I personally owned a 1987 carbureted 3.9 Dakota and it had 250,000 on it and still ran great, and I have seen an 88 or 89 that had 317,000 and also still ran good! My dad has a 94 with a 3.9 that has 203,000 on it and runs perfect, and last, I have another 89 that has 202,000 on it and also runs really good! I would drive a 3.9 to the moon if it was possible.

I have a 1998 Dakota Sport 3.9 with 177,000 on it. I bought it when it had 125,000. I don't know what the guy before me has done as far as preventative maintenance, so I have tackled all the fluid changes myself. Runs strong! Oh yeah, I changed the ball joints out @ about 140,000 miles. Yeah, the stock ones held out at least until 125,000! I heard they go out way sooner. Engine and automatic tranny are strong @ 177K.
