Hi,

Just a short note to introduce myself as a biker who is now a volvo driver [but for how long]... We aquired a 440s 1.8i yesterday, but by the time we got it home, the engine was making a knocking noise.

Turns out there was all but no oil in it !!!

Not sure how long it'll keep running, but we're hoping to get it to the garge tomorrow to see what damage has been done and how much a repair will be.

Welcome LittleNose!

Did you check the car before taking delivery? Anyway, check into the 440 Forum, and hope everything checks out OK.

Thanks for the welcome - Well if it had been ok, then it was a bit of a steal from a friend, so i didn't want to do too much infront of them... i noticed the oil light flicking on and off as i drove home [15 miles], but as it was dark and raining, with my girl riding her bike [she'd pillioned down to pick it up] i figured we'd jsut get home and i'd give it a thorough going over the next day. <- my fault


Still we've found a replacement engine for £130
So i'm getting the experience of changing my first engine ever
