    Hello fellows I'm new here please excuse me for the dumb question but I'm curious to know what's the highest mileage any one had gotten out of a 3.4 engine before needing headgaskets replaced? Thanks .

    I am at 287k.

    I don't think head gaskets ever need replacing on these unless there is an overheating event.

    I have seen these 3.4 engines with 1/2 million miles still running around.
