I know this may well be my Volvo's last voyage, i bought it for the road trip and want to be sure it will make it through the 2100 miles. I have only driven this car for a month and it runs like a nuclear submarine, but has 230,000 miles on it and will be moderately loaded.
With a 7 day itinerary of 300 miles a day - Which I presume should be easier on the engine than 7 days of the often hilly urban commutes of San Francisco - would I make it? What red flags should I look out for? Mechanic tells me engine compression is well above 150psa. Its an old horse, will dump tonnes of Co2 on the way... but what should I do besides just counting its teeth? TT
