joined volvo forms .com .Thought I could kick back and get all my volvo imfo. Well thats not working , lets just blame it on on the left side of my brain.
Heres the deal, looking for direction from all you volvo lovers , except for the ones in singapore, seems they have some bad chi going on. I have a 91 740 turbo wagon, of coarse I love it, which could be a bad thing. Never get emotionally invovled with you car. Red has 146453 miles and is burning a little oil, ok maybe a little more than a little, alright 1 qt per tank of gas. BUt very little blue smoke, can you beleive it. checked cylinder leakage ,cyl 1 50% cyl 2 20% cyl 3 20% cyl 4 30%. A rebuild installed woluld be a $3000.00 investment give or take. Looking for a used engine . Thinking someone has one sitting in there garage. Maybe not .

thANKS FOR THE TIME HOPING i CAN GET TO THE RESPONSES IF NTHERE ARE ENY.

Welcome to the forum.
Do you have any salvage yards in your local area?
Some of the salvage yards will locate you one if they don't have one.

Welcome,
But to add to Tech's post here is a link to a salvage yard seach engine.

Sometimes don't let some of the prices scare you for an engine. A buddy of mine just picked up a B230ft out of a yard by me with 115K on it for $650. Yes they can be had cheap if your persistant. But call around and see what you can score on the cheap. Expect to pay around $750 for a low mileage 2.3 Turbo motor.
