My engine has 66,000 miles but engine hours of 2,136. Why is that not matching what miles should be. This was a used vehicle and I'm trying to figure out what kind of life it had before.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good morning,

Engine hours are based on the engine on time. If the truck did a lot of idling, the hours will not meet the mileage at all.

Thanks for the info, with the difference I have, is the anything mechanical I should look into to possibly might be on it's way out? I search idling for long and I seen spark plugs wear out. Anything else?

Just the fluids. Make sure you change the oil, transmission, coolant, brake and power steering on a regular basis.
