1996 Volvo 850 GLT 5 Cyl 2.40L
Mechanic says timingbelt broke and bent the pistons on the engine. ? Is it better to fix it, or replace the engine?
Paid $2,500 2yrs ago. have spent $2,400 in repairs. bought with odometer broken, so not sure of real mileage (243,000). the Mechanic says it will cost about $2,000 to fix. Body in excellent shape.
It may be worth it to get a new car...
