Re: 1995 engine specs (guidowitz)

Thanks. I'll look for the engine code. What do the codes mean?<p>I've been told that there were only 3 different engines for the North American market:<p>"There is a base non turbo engine, the LPT turbo engine and the the R engine, period"<p>What does LPT mean?<p>What does GLT mean?<p><br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 1995 engine specs (guidowitz)

there is no light pressured turbo (LPT) in 1995. if u have a 2.4L in 1995, it is a non-turbo n/a version.<p>glt, who knows.. maybe grand luxury touring.. could be wrong, but i don't believe volvo ever came clear on that.

I just searched around one of the Swedish car sites and someone had asked what "GLT" means. There was some speculation, but the best answer was exactly what Steve said above - "grand luxury touring." Then many more plays on the acronym occurred, my favorite being "gammal luddig traktor" which means old fuzzy tractor...

Since my 1995 850 has a turbo, then it must be the variant 3 with 220 hp.
