It was caused by a broken timing belt. My mechanic had assured me that all maintebnance had been done by his shop (Volvo Dealer). I had purchased cars from him, and he had done all my maintenance for 15 years. Never a problem. I have to agree with you, that the previous owner had been rough on it. I guess it boiled down to the fact that I believed him, and I should not have. I put it behind me and move forward. Thanks for your comments.

well, there ya go. certainly can't blame the timing belt on the car. and at 145k miles, it was overdue for its 2nd belt. i never believe folks unless they can show me receipts. even then it is questionnable. when i buy a used car, i do all maintenance for its mileage, whether it seems like it needs it or not. personally, if i bought a car with 140k miles, i'd change the timing belt immediately. i'm not saying you were in the wrong, necessarily, but its obviously been a learning experience for you.

Hi I have alot of blue smoke comming out of my tailpipe. I took it to a local volvo shop that said it may have too much oil. They wanted to replace the oil before any other major work was done. The oil presure did not go down and there was no cpu message or idiot light. Could this be a turbo? if so what is the cost to replace the turbo on a 2001 Volvo V70 2.4t

Yes a worn turbo could cause oil burning. Probably a $750 to $1,500 job. If you are handy with tools, you can remove the turbo and send it to rebuilders listed for instance in major automotive magazines. That's what I did and it cost me $400 for a rebuild.

The technician at the garage I frequently visit tells me that it is a 3.5 hr. job to get at the brake booster....is there a quicker way to get this done? He is open to suggestions.
