  • Ah, yes. Good old red block's water pump leakage. You don't need to change the pump. Just use new gaskets.

  • You’re not alone, Hoovie. I do most basic maintenance on my motorcycle, but not my car. I just don’t enjoy wrenching that much, plus I don’t usually have the time and tools needed.

  • Thats a pretty easy car to fix. Volvo 2.3litre 4 bangers were made with the intention of its owner doing most of the repairs. I read somewhere that in most parts of Sweden there aren't many mechanics.

  • Waterpump, Body skuld not chance THE timingbelt ok this, its an unknown car, typical American worked in sitt THE really bad colors etc, THE timingbelt could be changed being blind. SAAB was THE furst people's car sitt turbo in THE 99 Turbo, Volvo 240 Turbo cane 1981 some years later. It has verk turbocharged cars before, first from USA really, Covair was first bur seriouslu Simple done, and after that BMW and Porsche, but as an ordinary car SAAB 99 was first. And THE Lego talk, think absolut American ordinary cars in THE 80s, jises. THE syringe is hos you till transmission fluids an tvinga like that from THE undersidor, nothing special att all. And test being THE man working in cars is useless, this magic Guy öns this shop, THE söners is not getting Lucy, but it Aldo depends in THE cars, he games exotic cars, THE owners can pay for thenselves.

  • Excellent car. My pregnant wife was cut out of an 87 “Brick” when she mistakenly pulled right into the path of a full sized Chevy pick up. The front passenger door was roughly midway into the passenger seat. She got a concussion and a small battle scar for the effort. The spawn is living his dream flying around Korea in a Blackhawk. I’ll be forever grateful to Swedish engineering.

  • The best thing with a volvo redblock engine is that changing the timing belt is not very important, it's non interference so when it brakes you just put it back again. mark the timings when you get it and then you never have to worry about it :D

  • That geezer should buy himself, a vw beetle, and fix it up in the corner of that garage. Its a very simple car, and he would learn alot from working on a simple car. It would be an interesting set of vids to see him fixing up his own car. We know its doubtful he will do it, but if he wanted to do such vids, he should start on a vw beetle, its a very simplistic car. Just accept that everyone learning would make mistakes, and you would have your buddy the wizard to help you out, when needed.
