First, thanks for taking the time to read and advise.

My Father fell victim to a scammer and he bought a car that, believe it or not, does not run, or at least run well. How and why is another story, but later diagnosed at the local dealer and learned that the block is cracked.

Here is my question:

We are faced with replacing the motor entirely and want to know if it is a good move based on the experience of the forum in regards to the longevity of the other parts of the car like tranny, suspension ect. (I have never owned a Volvo)


2000 Volvo S70 GLT SE
2.4 liter turbo
118,000 miles

engine cost 1400
Install price 800

Would you do it, or walk away...thoughts, experiences, and comments from you guys will help shape our decision.

Thanks you so much for your time and consideration.
