so recently, a relative borrowed my Passat for a day or two in return for a 1994 Volvo 940 for a day or two.

here are a few things I’ve learned about the car since I’ve got it in my hands.

the paint on the hood is peeling. actually, this isn’t just limited to the paint on the hood.

while driving this thing, it was immediately clear that the alignment was messed up. I would have my steering wheel pointed to 10 o’clock, and the car would be headed straight. also, you needed to put the gear selector into “2" to start the car, or else it wouldn’t start. that was rough this morning when I panicked and thought I couldn’t start it up. then, i called the owner who promptly informed me of the problem. the A/C also doesn’t work in this car.


that’s a lot of miles, also an analog clock!


i’m pretty sure this is the 2.5 4cyl mated to a 4 or 5 speed. (correct me if i’m wrong)


2.3 4-cylinder, NA, Bosch LH-Jetronic 2.4 fuel system with EZK-117 ignition. Not a bad combination.

Being a 94, it should have the 3.73 rear end, with the AW71L transmission. (4-speed with lockup torque converter)
