Here im selling a car iv owned for a long time.It started as a Volvo 850 T5 but since has now got a T5R engine put in. It was running perfectly fine before an ex broke it hence the engine change.
Before the change it was running 340bhp, 310 at the wheels and before the turbo was changed (it had a boost leak) it was beating focus rs"s and many other cars on 1/4 mile.
Since that it has had a brand new exhaust from turbo back (first section and new cat), new coil, new HT leads, new spark plugs, oil change,new rotor ar and battery. When the engine was changed the cambelt was done and has done less than 50 miles since. Also just before the previous engine had problems it had a new clutch and gearbox fitted. Unfortunately due to it being sat here it appears the slave cylinder rubbers have perished as the pedal goes straight to the floor and not up again - if i was keeping it id do it as not hard but iv just interest now.
The interior has been changed to full leather which is in really good condition for its age.
For its age its in good condition other than lacquer peel on the spoiler, black bumpers flaking and the odd interior cracks/ in plastic here and there.
It also had an uprated turbo, now a 16T (hence the exhaust change) which runs fine.
The problem with the car is that it is intermittently starting - its been sitting around for a fair while again now so the battery is flat. When you jump start it, it runs fine but when you turn it off it wont start again and iv run out of patience now.
The engine runs no problems once its started.The key fob has lost its back so needs a new back and then will need reprogramming but once battery is charged the central locking works fine with a key. Also the mileage has now stopped working but the speedo etc does however again iv done less than 50 miles since engine change.
The car owes me alot of money now with all the new bits done but i just cant get past this hitch with the starting problem. Its such a shame as it really is a quick car! And now a classic with its age and theres really not many around now.It would make a good project and i dont see it being anything hard for a Volvo mechanic (im not). Iv had to part with it now to buy a new car as i just need something to get from a to b. The car also has a set of new SFS hoses specially made for it and a baileys dump valve. If it doesnt sell i will probably break it for scrap as it as il make money back in parts.
The car has no MOT because of this starting but the only things other than the starting should be the lower arms.The car is being sold with this starting fault and is sold as honestly as possible as i dont know why it does this.
Viewing can be arranged, please message as its at my parents house. Please note it has been sitting around so has a little dirt but no rust.Please do not bid unless you are committing to buy this car, no bidding to look.
