More Information1999 (Phase 1) V40 2.0T (B4204T engine) Manual
Black Metallic, Black Leather, 230,486 Km
Engine problem: Not firing on cylinder #3:
-Diagnosed as a compression problem (upper end), exhaust valve not closing.
-It has not been investigated further (i.e. no Borescope, Head not removed), so the specific cause has not been determined.
I am in Melbourne. The car broke down and is in Central Ballarat.
The car has been outstandingly reliable, with the only exception being the fuel pressure regulator (replaced in 2013)
It is being sold as a complete car for restoration/repair OR as a complete ‘parts’ car for someone to use – it is NOT being ‘parted-out’ by me.
-Good overall condition
-Alloy wheels (4): all in excellent condition (not scratched, hold their air well)
-Black leather: no rips, tears, broken/damaged stitching
-Volvo 50mm hitch-style Towbar fitted (note: hitch/ball not included)
-Alpine 6 CD-changer fitted to original radio
-Sunroof mechanism works perfectly
-Original spare wheel
-Rear Cargo Blind (good condition)
-All electrics working (however since being off the road, the battery has failed)
-Doesn’t currently drive – but could move a short distance under its own power if jump-started/another battery installed
-Headlight adjustment mechanisms have cracked, so the headlights are probably not salvageable
-The roof-lining (slight sag) is probably not salvageable
THE BODY: (See photos)
-Car has never been in any collision/accident
-No rust issues
-Some nicks and bumps on body (consistent with age/use)
-Minor dent/scrape along significant length of LHS rear mudguard
-Clear-coat has just started to peel/fade in a couple of places (approx 5cm2) on two panels (RHS passenger door and rear mudguard)
-Bonnet has some “swirly” surface marks/splotches – there when the car was purchased 10yrs ago.
-Front bumper was replaced by former owner (approx. 13 years ago) when it was damaged after driving over something at low speed.
