Sold me Rav4 because of certain future plans, now I am wondering what to do? Should I rent a car for a few days or buy a small cheap (reliable) run about that I can sell quickly. Not for daily driving but to go about the weekend shift and probably one or two trips. Heart says rent, but its going to be quite expensive.
We have a Volvo S40 1.9 Turbo Diesel (Manual Transmission) imported brand new in year 2000 under permit scheme.
After first 30,000km done , it gave some engine problems and agent Swedish Trading replaced a new engine at free of cost under warranty as it was a manufacturing fault. (Heard that agent replaced around 8 engines under warranty scheme due to same problem.) However after using new engine for 70,000km, we had to do overhaul the engine. After 45,000km from the engine overhaul, now we are getting various problems.
Now we are looking avenues for fixing a Japanese engine with a gear box and convert it to Automatic transmission.
My questions are,
(1) Is it possible to fix any good Japanese Engine (Eg. Toyota, Nissan) with Automatic transmission gear box?
(2) What are the suitable Japanese engine models?
(3) Any disadvantages can hope in future?
(4) Can you suggest any good place to get this service?
Details of the vehicle are as follows.
Make and model: Volovo S40
YOM: Late 2000
Engine Capacity: 1.9 (1870CC) Turbo Diesel
Transmission : Manual (5 forward)
Unladen Weight: 1325kg
Thanks in advance.
