At least most of the normal problems are fairly easy to fix. Or at least all the how too's are here.
I had a Jeep Cherokee that was 12 years old and had 140,000mi on it before I sold it. Never had to replace any gaskets or seals on it. There was some seepage but no outright leaks.

The heat from the turbo on this engine is definitely what has degraded the items I have had to change. And the fact that the exhaust wraps around the whole engine... Any oil leaks end up on the exhaust and results in that wonderful aroma.

If all those other items have failed , how long before the oil seals on the turbo fail?

Any tell tale signs?
