hello just wondering if someone can tell me if 148000 miles is alot for that car and if anyone has had one with close to 200000 miles just want to make sure i get a good car.

The car loses power when I push the throttle down to try to go into passing gear or when trying to throttle up more power when going up a hill. It feels just like you are applying the brake while holding the throttle down at the same time, it just starts slowing down and "surging". It shifts from first to second, and to third without any problem on level ground, but when I push the throttle all the way down to accelerate, it will just bog down. A local garage has replaced the O2 sensor, the throttle sensor, the fuel pump, dropped the exhaust to check for any blockage, fuel pressure is up to specs, air filter is okey, but none of this corrected the problem, and it is still giving a code of "heated O2 sensor", according to the mechanic, and they dont know anything else to do (they did not charge me for the work, since it wasn't repaired). They also said the transmission was not giving a code. The engine runs smooth, no misses when it starts slowing down . I held the throttle down all the way to see what it would eventually do, it just slowed down and you could feel the van surging. When I let up on the throttle, it began to slowly pick up speed. Any ideas?

My Speedometer is not working Correctly.My car is a taxi ex police Car.

I was told to open the gas cap again and close it after driving for a while, which it does work after I open it and close it at least twice and the light goes on, but I don't want this to continue, do I have to buy a new gas cap or it may be something else.

Manual transmission, take off is fine and second gear seems ok, but the more acceleration the more shaking. when idling in nuetral seems to want to bog out. changed oil and now check engine light is on. once up to speed on freeway, seems to be ok. Its only when I open it up, higher RPM's
