Im replacing the motor on my car after 260k miles. Will the new motor be compatible with the other older parts?
Im concerned once I get the new motor put in, the parts that have never been replaced will start to falter as a direct result of having this newer motor .. Is this possible?

The new motor will not wear out the other parts any faster than the old one would have, but the other parts are getting old and worn so they will fail soon. My son replaced the engine in one of his vehicles. The engine only had 225,000 miles on it and was only $1200, but he replaced about $15,000 worth of other stuff to make the other stuff last as long as the engine.

If the engine you are replacing uses the exact same parts I wouldn't worry unless the older parts need replacing.
Otherwise you R good 2 go.
Hope this helps.Source(s): past experience.

As long as you get the same motor i dont see why they wouldn't work.
