My buddy asked me if I knew of any good used, cheap Volvos. I always keep an eye out for nice clean cars as friends come to me all the time for car advice. I already knew of one I saw in my travels, a dark grey one, pretty much spotless with 130k for $1850 listed price. I told my buddy to call and offer $1600, the car lot took that amount and I put down a deposit for him as he lives 100mi away in the city. He came and got it today. It did not need much, dist/sparkplugs and radiator etc were new, eveything else was good except the oil and trans fluid were nasty. Being the good friend I am, I had 5q of MaxLife 10w-40 and SUPERTECH Dex ATF ready for him. I own a Pela extractor and was suprised after extracting the oil, that NONE came out after pulling the drain bolt, it got 100%. It also got 3.5q of ATF too. The ATF was black, probally original. I was thinking, why the heck do people or their mechanics not change out $3 worth of fluid? They only get new fluid when they get a new trans, I guess. Anyway, I'll redo it with some Maxlife ATF in a few months and suggest a professional flush..someday, maybe 150k. BTW- it will be a city car...stop-n-go, I coulda used a thinner oil, but this way the guy is covered if there is a bit of consumption he does not catch. I'm a good friend, yes?
