Re: Volvo TAMD70E

The basic engine is a good unit likes being worked the heat exchangers are 1 step obove rubbish not one bit forgiving to lack of maintiance ie, zinc anodes must be serviced regulary using good quality parts. Not that any engine likes being overheated but TAMD70E pistons grab cracking ring landings with costly results. If purchasing s/hand check service background and alarm system correct operation.
