Volvo 940 2.0 na manual, Mot until April.

It usually starts and drives well enough but it's had a couple of failure to proceeds where it has bogged down and died only to sort itself out and keep going. I changed the fuel pump relay after the first time but it did it again so I'm not sure it was that that was the problem.

It's in fair condition but with the imminent arrival of a 190e it's no longer needed.

 

£200

Likely as not the pump that's dying. I had similar once.

I have a new pump here but haven't managed to get around to fitting it yet.

Forgot to mention, I have a spare lower mileage 2.0l engine and gearbox to go with the car if anyone wants it.

Hmmm... This is way too tempting. Will you drop it off in Glasgow if I cover your expenses to get to and from Glasgow?

Just took this out a run and it seems fine, I made a boring video of me thrashing it down some back roads which I'm in the process of uploading.

It was a bit smokey on startup, I drove to the unit and it drove absolutely fine. I had soldered the old fuel pump relay so put that back in and took it out for drive. It drives reasonably well.

I have a theory that it's not fuel pump related but could be moisture getting in to the distributor cap. The first time it cut out I had driven through a large puddle and the time after that I was driving on a road thick with slush. Come to think about it, the car has always felt a bit rubbish when driving in rain. Perhaps a new distributor cap is required.

Hnnnnnng it is a nice oul thing. I don't want to be another arsehole saying I can't because.....

But basically management has been quite firm. I reckon I'd have this home in a boat (groan) for a grand total of £300 too.

Some pointless questions as I'm basically out but I assume as long as there's no rain it should make it to Stranraer?

No critical rust near anything that would scare the MOT man?

As far as I remember from briefly having it up in the air it was pretty clean looking underneath, I couldn't see anything that was a cause for concern. I think it would make it to Stranraer easily enough.

I'm hoping another shiter is going to use it to A-frame another car that I want rid of over the weekend.
