S/V/C70 98 v70r engine woes
hi guys im having a lot of trouble with my 98 v70r auto awd
so this whole saga started when it blew the lower radiator hose. i just put a new one on and i thought that was that. but after i put the new one on i had to keep on topping up the coolant, and i couldnt see any leaks or anything so i brought it to a proper mechanics so they could have a look.
i didnt think it was a blown head gasket cos the oil looked normal and stayed the same level
the previous owner had a full engine rebuild done at the same mechanic that i brought it to because the previous owner had overheated it. so the mechanic reckons that the cylinder liner has now slipped and is allowing combusion pressure into the coolant system and coolant into the combustion chamber as a result of it having overheated with the last owner about 4 or 5 years ago. does this sound plausible to you guys?
what are my options at this point? its looking like ill have to put a new engine in. what engines would work with a 98 v70r awd auto? anyone have one for sale?
the car runs fine it just drinks a lot of coolant
