Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

Volvo 4 cylinder engine

I recently bought a used 740GL with a 4 cylinder
non-turbo engine. The engine blew up after 3000
miles. I am looking to replace this engine with
another one. Are all Volvo 4 cylinders the same
2.3 liter even in the 240 series? I have found a
used one on ebay. It is a 92 240 engine. Will
this work?

    Shanku, your best bet is to direct this question to the owners over on the BrickBoard ( You will find many knowledgeable owners there including some who have had their cars long enough to need engine replacements.

    Good luck.

    The non-turbo 2.3L 114hp straight six engine on the 240 is the same as the one on the 740.
