      $500 2004 Volvo V70 2.4 AW55 (Steering Rack Leaks)

      Up for sale is my 2004 V70 2.4 Aw55 with 215,000 miles on the clock, located in Milwaukee, WI.
      I'm selling it because it has a power steering leak at the rack and I do not want to put the money or time (especially because it's winter) repairing it. If it does not sell I guess I'll be forced to scrap it, which I would like to avoid doing as it otherwise runs and drives and is a fine beater.

      The good:
      - All brake pads and rotors replaced a year and a half ago and bought through FCP so a new set can be had for free.
      - Front tires are almost new, rear tires were bought used but have plenty of tread.
      - Cleaned the entire interior recently.
      - Just replaced the interior temp sensor.
      - New lower steering joint.
      - New cabin filter.
      - New spark plugs.
      - IPD subframe inserts with new subframe bolts.
      - I can throw in a set of lower control arms with poly front bushings and xc90 rear bushing with new bolts.


      The bad:
      - Steering rack is leaking badly, lucas oil stop leak did not help. Pump and rack should be replaced.
      - Burns oil, not too badly. Might just need to do the flame trap.
      - AC Compressor wines (works just fine.)
      - All seats leather stitching is worn away at the same spot.
      - Large dent on the passenger rear door.
      - Paint on the roof is rough, I believe it sat under a tree for a while.
      - Exhaust leak (doesn't prevent from passing emissions.)


      I bought the car to daily while I did a big overhaul on the R and it served that purpose well. Very reliable up until this point. It's unlikely anyone will want to take this on but I figured it's worth a shot before I scrap it.

      I'm not going to get much scrapping it so any reasonable offer will be entertained. Paid 900 for it, put 600 into it, I'd like to get 500 for it as it sits. I'll add pics later.



      If anyone needs parts, let me know and I will considering parting it out before it goes to scrap if it doesn't sell.
