Default Jdm 850 t5r

Hi all,
First time in this section of the forum, currently have an XC70,
I have come across a '95 JDM 850 T5R in black with only 80,000 kms on the clock.
It seems in good condition but I have no idea as to the common faults on these, apart from the obvious, what specifically should i be looking out for?
Any help or info welcome, also, what price do these tend to fetch?

Similar topic recently discussed here - Japanese imports - if you wish to enter into the thread.

One of the most highlighted issues on any Volvo 5 cylinder white block is the clogging up of the Positive Crankcase Ventilation system. This comes about generally due to neglect with regard to oil change intervals and incorrect spec of engine oil used. As a result of a blocked PCV system you get oil trying to push out at the seals...the rear main crankshaft seal being the most expensive to replace due to the labour involved. A simple test with a rubber glove held over the oil filler with an elastic band will determine how well the system is breathing. If it inflates you've got issues.

Also have a read of - 850, 70 And T5 Buyers Guide - courtesy of Jod_T5

Being ex Japanese my guess is that the car you're looking at will have an extensive service history, they're quite strict on emissions so tend to look after their motors, and going off the ad it's been previously NCT'd and taxed so you're good to go albeit at a premium. Going from the description they've gone to great lengths to bring the car up to Irish/UK standard. That particular ad is several months old and, if I'm not mistaken, was first entered at 10,999. I'm curious to know how much these are selling for in Japan.

Mega motors in my personal opinion, the "Golden Age" of car manufacture, but I would be quite biased in that regard

If you're trying to check for positive crankcase pressure, the rubber glove (latex type is best) should be over the dipstick tube, not oil filler.

Using the filler opening is more obvious than the dip stick hole. See our friend Robert.
