I agree with the above posts. At around 150K if the engine was not serviced regularly, it's time for rings and exhaust valves. I bought a 1998 Metro that was only needing exhaust valves, but after fixing that I had other issues like.......

Exhaust fell off
Transmission burnt up (no oil in it)
Frame Rot

After I got all the bugs worked out, I now have a very reliable car that starts up every time no matter how cold it is outside.
