Question Asked: Engine replacement/repair timing belt?
July 12, 2013, 08:32 AM
Daughter's car volvo s80 will not start---engine coolant light was on and then while in reverse made a loud noise. Mechanic came to check it and said the timing belt was off---and then said the engine was 'blown'. We live on an island and don't know how bad it really is or how to check before getting it towed and ferried off the island for repairs. Any advice appreciated.Is it worth fixing? 147,000 miles .Thank you.
