    Nice, you'd pay that for something tiny shipped from the USA

    The car has been standing in a parking lot for 2 months and took it yesterday, still running fine if you ignore the filth and the massive oil leak that leaves a sodden timing belt

    I moved it to my garage and I still don't know where to start... so much to do... Also my RS4 was stolen and I'm not much in the mood of doing anything lately.

    Pic from yesterday to keep the thread alive:

    Oh no, that's terrible news!

    Hopefully you find the passion to get stuck in and sort out the V70

    Sorry to hear about your stolen car, awful news indeed

    Hope the insurance covers things quickly and you get the enthusiasm back for the old Volvo.

    insurance here can't be arsed... they offer 5-7k for the car. That's definitely not RS4 b5 street price and it's miles away from what I paid. If it doesn't show up I will have to fight hard with the insurance company.

    Quick question a bit unrelated: the friend that sold this VR to me snapped the timing belt in his saffron R. He said it's a b5234t4 engine... Is it easy to find another engine to swap? like maybe a b5234t3 is good enough if he fits his ancilliaries, loom and stuff. Or are the b5234 engines very different between them? We searched for info but nothing was clear enough. thanks!

    I worked a little bit last week with the idea of finding out why the car lacks on power - if it's the engine itself or some external component.

    I also checked the PCV, because I was having smoke out of the dipstick and a blown crankshaft seal. It turned out to be pretty clean. I used brake cleaner and very little deposits came out

    I'm afraid the blown crankshaft seal is due to the engine being low in compression.
    Yesterday I drove 3h to pick up some parts from a friend who's breaking a 2007vr. I wanted to take his haldex (gen3) but I don't think it will work on my 04

    Glad you're making some progress... Have you done a compression test? If so what values came back?
