Question How long will my E450 keep driving?

Hey there,
My bus is built on a 2008 Ford E450 6L Diesel. The beast has been purring like a kitten, feels and sounds great, but her milage is getting up there. Way up there...

She currently has over 917,000 km on her. I'm wondering what to save for and if she'll last me another few years or not. Any advice or guidance?



I'm not entirely sure this was the right category for the thread but feel free to move it if it's in the wrong spot.

Many problems with egr cooler and coolant. Expensive to fix.

My guess is with the 6.0 having over half a million miles on it, the issues have been addressed. I would say that is super high mileage but do you know if the engine is original? There is really no telling how long it will drive for. It could throw a rod tomorrow or it could go until the world runs out of oil.
