I agree with the previous posters...188k is really nothing to these engines and as long as you keep em up they'll pretty much keep on rolling. My 560 has 238k and nothing major has ever happened to the engine since I got it 3 years ago. I pretty much do all of the maint on her and its a DIY friendly automobile.Just be sure you get the timing chain switched to a double row chain (if it doesn't have one already- not sure about yours)when you do replace the rails,etc so you'll have double protection. Hell I wish my baby DID have 188k on her. That engine's just getting broken in. Good Luck!
