Damn, disconnect your injectors and you have the most fuel efficient volvo on this forum :P . If you do end up scrapping it then the buzzards ask you might consider saving the ECU and a few other parts. That car could be used for an OEM m56 swap on 2.3T turbo vehicles.

This forum will not let parts go to waste! I do hope you can fix it though.

It is indeed a sad day to all of us who have learned from you and your cars over the years as we know this car has a particular affection to you (infection?). Hopefully she gets to live another day.

In your first trip picture, if that is your cottage in the trees then I think it needs more work than your cars!! :D

What do you mean she shakes under 3000 RPM? Is it an engine issue or driveline issue?

Have you swapped the fuel filter and got a tank of fresh gas in the tank?

Beautiful pictures also.

Manovlov,
What do you do when you share a trailer with several vehicles?

In Oklahoma, small trailers are not tagged.

Years ago (1980s), small trailers in Texas had to have your Social Security number painted on the trailer. Imagine that today?

Abscate,
Hold on to that Volvo and fix it later this spring.

France doesn't seem definitly the country of lightened ones.
Otherwise, we would sell solar power to all the rest of the world...

Funny, this idea of to paint a number on a trailer.
