Question about 1998 Volvo C70
Mechanic says no compression on cylinder #1--engine missing badly. we have 146,000 miles on what has otherwise been great car. Mechanic says he's "99%" sure it's a problem that can be fixed by re-working the head. (for around $1800). Is it worth the gamble on a car with so many miles on it?
There is a metallic "clink" when the motor is running, and the car has been using a couple of quarts of oil every 3000 miles for over a year. HELP!!
No compression on #1 cylinder, engine missing badly, a "metallic clink" when the motor is running and gobbling 2 quarts of oil every 3000 miles. I would vote a strong NO,it is not worth it. Not for $1800. at the very least I would get a quote on just replacing the engine with a low mileage engine at a large, reputable junk yard.
Good luck Loringh
