2005 XC70 237K - Sputters After 40MPH

EDIT: Timing Belt Not Done In 6 Years Of Current Ownership
Would this be too high of a mileage @ $700?
Is this driveability problem something obvious?

Ask if it has a check engine light, and if they know what the code is. Could be a cheap fix if one uses used parts. Still need to find out about that timing belt and water pump - how long have they owned the car mileage wise?

How much to do you want to throw at it to make it driveable?

Even if it was free the worked involved potentially just in TBWP and PCV would take too long for me during winter. The guy said it was diagnosed as the pressure sensor so I show him the FCP Euro video and link to the part. Told him he could better sell it if he got it running being he was sure it was that part. I think he took my advise and removed the ad.
