My 07 xc70 engine was blown due to a mechanic replacing my water pump with an inferior no name pump brand. I need some feedback on an engine replacement. My concern is reliability afterwards. I love my ol Volvo.... all comments and opinions appreciated before I make this decision. Thank You
I road trip often and camp in the back of my xc70, even had a mattress made
for her. It's nothing for me to take a 3000 mile trip solo. So I need a safe
reliable means of transport. The idea of replacing her engine sounds most
appealing without a car payment to impede my travel. I am however fully
aware of the importance of maintenance and thought I was more than meeting
those needs and obligations. she currently has 136,000 and I hope many more
to go... Thoughts and advice please.
Volvo sells engines for your car at about $7,500. If you google "volvo crate engines" you will come up with several after market sources for rebuilt engines.
