Vee_Que;34594 wroteHello. Congrats on buying it! Was too much for my liking not being a gle and iirc having the 14" wheels had the smaller brakes. Also being in WA didn't help!
Can't help on mechanics but the timing belt should have been done twice in its life already and they aren't a big deal to do anyway vs modern diesels. Make sure you keep coolant, not water in it and it should last a long time!
Thanks Vee-Que . Just love the old Volvos .yes im sure timing belts been done before .I think it has to be done every 90000 kms quote me if im wrong . but I just don't want to take the risk.
I also want to do water pump . I drive at least 1000km a week so get a bit paranoid with my vehicles .yes coolant very important to ! .
I see you own a 122s and 740 t sedan . both nice cars . I had a 85 760 turbo ,and one of the best cars ive owned ..im also very parcial to the pv544 and alike .wouid really like to get one .
