Hi, Welcome aboard.
Are you worried that the starter motor might be failing? How old is your battery?
Starters are easy to replace if you want peace of mind.

I’m more worried about the general things that could go wrong with my engine. I just want to know how far in miles could my engine go before major problems start to pop out.

You mean out of hundreds of parts in your engine, which has the greatest chance of failure?

All of them.
None of them.

I have an engine with more than 400k miles on it.
I have seen engines fail at less than 1000 miles.

It sounds like you have been taking good care of your car. Continue what you have been doing, and try not to worry about what may happen.

It never ceases to amaze me when I think of how an empty body shell is placed on a assembly line, rolls along recieving hundreds of different components, comprised of thousands of parts, supplied by hundreds of vendors, installed by hundreds of different people... And when it rolls out of the other side of the factory a few hours later, it is a running, working car that you can get in, turn the key, and drive.
It's a wonder that they don't have more problems than they do, but modern cars are very reliable, and 100k miles is really just sort of "middle-aged" for a automobile nowadays. Particularly, one that has been well maintained.

You might review which services that are recommended at 100k, in your owners manual, and make sure everything is up to date. Otherwise, I can't think of anything in particular that consistently becomes a problem at 100k.

Good luck!
And keep enjoying your Mustang!
