I have a 99' Volvo V70r which as an hybrid turbo but sadly it blew a valve and it also had an oil leak. I've brought it after my dad died as we had one when I was a kid, I also wanted to get it on track as these cars ruled touring cars in the 90's.
I've brought 90% the parts (need timing belt n head bolts) for the car. The main problem I have is the upper sump gasket is worn and causing the oil leak, sadly the whole engine needs to come out to put a new liquid gasket on.
my local garage told me it would cost upwards of £800 to do. Sadly I am currently unemployed so can't afford that much, I would do the work myself but due to my disability it really isnt possible.
I wanted to see if you guys could help me please as I really want to get the car back up and running in memory of my dad.
Anyway we are located in Daventry, could of lent a hand if closer or worst case provided you with a haven to get you through. Keep this thread going and I am sure someone closer to home will help out. Good Luck.
I used to be a nightmare for parking on my old lawn, I found some 1" ply off cuts in a skip about 18" x 30", They were water proof and still gave good clearance to get the jack under, free is always a good price... Good luck with you getting your motor back on the road.
