    I really do want to learn manual if I can get my hands on a manual trans for it I’ll probably take it. One again it’s going to a shop so I won’t have to worry about putting it in. Also I’m not necessarily looking to buy a whole car so I’m just gonna see what I can get my hands on.

      I’m starting to see what everyone is talking about now. It is a lot harder than I thought to find one. I spent all day looking and the only lead I got was a bust and I’m struggling to even find a glt engine. Does anyone have any recommendations for other types of engines that work well with 850s?

        Try LKQ auto wrecking they ship nation wide. I got a transmission for my 850 8 years ago had 95k miles on it

            Found a 2.4 turbo motor on LKQ in Rhode Island with 119k and another in Idaho with 85k

              I’ll try LKQ and if it comes too it I might have to grab the v70 but I’m gonna try and get a engine first. I’ve put it some request for one on different sites so I’ll just have to wait and see.

                  Do a compression check.. i bet you have a burnt exhaust valve..not an expensive fix if you do yourself. I have an 850r wagon parts car.. come take the engine.. no ECM though.

                    So I looked up lkq and found 2 engines but they both say 2.4L turbo but from what I know I thought only the 2.3L engines had turbos. I’ll post the link to the one I’m looking at. It says it only has 85k miles on it so I’m guessing it’s still in good shape.

                      There is a possibility it’s mislabeled on the site and could be a 2.3 if not the 2.4 would be from an s70

                          Yeah I agree that is a bit rough but 85k miles isn’t that bad and if you take care they’ll last forever. But then that brings up the question or transmission and I still have to call if that’s the correct engine because it says a 2.4L and turbo.

                            Shoot, I'll give you my entire car for 1500.

                              850ARE may have a point about doing a compression check, you could have a burnt valve which would only require the head being taken off and rebuilt with all new valves, labor wise would be cheaper then a complete engine swap. Worth looking into ?

                                But v70rgt offer of 1500$ is very tempting
