These can suffer with compression loss if left sitting for a while
Can be rectified fairly easily most times
Take the plugs out and put a tablespoon of 10/40 or 20/50 if you can get it down the bores.
Spin it over with the plugs out.
Repeat with the oil and put plugs back in
Try starting it.. The Lifters may rattle if it goes but this should return to normal with time.

Can you please break it, as was suggested to you by at least 3 other people in the 850 & V/S/C70 section you originally posted it for sale within.

I appreciate what you're saying, but i haven't really got the time to do this. Hence why I am giving the car away for free. Thought people would jump to the occasion for this
