Excellent job & great car, I once had a 240 saloon that I bought with 180k on the clock, still had it in the family at 250k & the engine was still perfect.

I always wondering, car stays 10 years outside and you didn't rebuild engine! I should be full of rust that will work as abrasive for cylinders!

I had a D24TIC 940 (a rare thing in the UK) with a straight pipe. The non-turbo D24 sounds better.

You need to install 4-food by 8-foot sheets of plywood along the bottom of your wall protecting the insulation and electrical wiring against accidental damage by water and being struck while you are working in garage. When install with wood screws to easily take off plywood sheets for access. Use wood preservative or enamel paint On plywood for water retention. Go to YouTube channel (Durtymax Jack) to see his large warehouse/garage to see how he installed the plywood.

Most commonly mistake. Wait until you KNOW it runs before putting money into it, But not saying it *Isn't* worth it... But i also am not arguing that if you did un-screw the plug some and water started coming out only THEN it would be worth doing an oil change/filters before you got it running Also the reason why you do this AFTER you get it running is so that all the Chunks and Sludge goes to the bottom of the Pan... I learned this the hard way. It's a good idea too by Crack the injector lines &* bleed the system of any AIR that is trapped. those old diesels may not be super expensive but the bill will pile up over time if you are senseless.

I fondly remember this Volkswagen engine in my brother's Volvo 940 estate. It didn't make much power but was ultra reliable, clocking up over 250,000 miles. Great video! 👍

@Memphis My dad had a 740 estate red and white pin stripe interior. The car had a Nissan patrol 2.3 straight diesel engine. After that he had a 960 estate with the same engine as this one you have. A D24 tic Volvo Audi vw engine very bullet proof. Also i remember replacing the throttle body on it. See how she idled properly when you put the throttle cable back on her. This holds the rev counter at number one. Something to do with injector timing when starting from cold. She hovers over the one on the rev counter to warm up then she drops to bang on number one when warmed up. She's a keeper 👍😊

Just remember to replace the timing belt and injection pump drive belt before it breaks and wrecks the engine. Special tools are needed, but AFAIK they are the same as used on the VW T4 (and of course the VW LT with the same engine), so should be fairly easy to find.

Nice revival boys. Comment. Do not use start gas on the old prechamber diesel engines. Best is to bleed fuel system and get a good and strong battery. You can actually hear how the explosion from the start gas tries to slow down the engine when you turned. But anyway. Long live Greta. :D

hallo mannen , de motor is eigelijk een volkswagen motor die in de LT mk 1 gelegen heeft , dit zijn nog de zg voorkamer dieselmotoren hebben werkelijk een heel mooi ronkgeluid , waren ook turboversie,s van meen dat bij vw de ongeblazen motoren code CP of DW hebben ongeveer 75 pk die code staat links op het motorblok , geslepenvlak net onder de vacuumpomp een dringend advies , voor je er mee gaat rijden , vernieuw de distributieriem uit voorzorg gaat deze kapot of verspringd deze , dan is gelijk het hele motorblok in puin de kleppen raken de zuigers en meestal breekt de nokkenas en lagersteunen breken meestal uit de kop , dat word dan wel hele dure reparatie , die moeten jullie voorkomen riem vd verdelerdieselpomp kan opzich niet zoveel kwaad , valt dan alleen stil de volvo is wel een heel leuke vondst , succes ermee Chrit

ok, the Mk1 VW Golf was freakin' outstanding, the BMW a great logical choice.....the Volvo? What bet did some one lose? I was hoping for an old Porsche....ok, so we have a Volvo. I'm still watching. Especially because of the wood burning stove in the shop. That stove is great. But please, no more Volvos after this one.....

You should have first poured some engine oil into cylinders through spark plugs port, wait couple of hours and crank the engine manually. This would have saved piston rings if they were good. Starting a sitting engine without libricating cylinder first is likely to damage the rings.

That Diesl sounds terrible, knowing how a Diesel sounds, that must be the engine made in conjunction with Renault,Volkswagen,Peugeot.

@Hannes I know how a Doesel sounds , but what I mean is the engine in this 245 station wagon sounds terrible after it had been sitting outside for 10 years or more, that is what I have been saying the whole time,, also were the pumps working, for a car to start right , usually it would start right away

I don´t agree with you. It´s a very unique sound. All VW LT diesel-engines of this era had exactly this sound.

How nice that it started! :) I think this official Volvo D24 service manual (all in english) might help you some. It really did for me. http://www.240.se/litteratur/tp30224_2.pdf A tip: timing belt replacement is a bit different from other engines so I recommend to look at the manual. The belt is tightened manually with the water pump on engines made before 1993. Also, the engine have to be syncronised with the diesel pump. A zero will appear on the flywheel when the engine is in top dead center. When replacing the timing belt you should use special tool 999-5190 (to lock the camshaft on the rear side) if you can get it. All the special tools are described in the manual and some of them are still available from Volvo. Looking forward to your next update! :) Cheers from sweden!
