so after long consideration and peoples's suggestions : I have decided to rebuild the engine for my 07 s40 2.4 non turbo ..engine has been removed and taken apart , I suspect had a blown head gasket , found piston seized cylinder walls have so much rust , but I believe block can be saved as it is .

for what its worth ! I have a new roommate which contends to have experience doing engines .. he is telling me just clean up the cylinders walls (hone the walls) clean pistons and other components with CHEM DIP carburator parts cleaner real good) , IF that is the case which wont require proffesionaly bore cylinders , new pistons , bearings..!!!

if the BLOCK ITS NOT so bad .. can i safely re-use everything providing i get new RINGS or should i get over size rings ? sorry just have never done a complete tear down or rebuilt - this will be my first
I think i m looking forward to the experience lol..

suggestions advise greatly appretiate it

i can also provide some pictures if any body is interested of what it looks like ??
