Here's the challenge:2 weeks ago, "Vivo", my Volvo C70 2001, died while slowing down to stop. Wouldn't restart
. I'm gonna have to be smart and thrifty about this repair as I have very limited funds...Can you help?
The Details:-Towed Vivo to Shop #1
: reported multiple misfires and codes PO236, PO237
. Said I should start with the CAM sensor but may want to tow it to the dealership to see if the ETM warranty might be part of the problem (did no repairs yet). Towed it to dealership.-Towed Vivo to Shop #2:
did a sweep test after much debate and said it passed, so no ETM work. instead, get this. they said I should spend >$2000 to do the following: New Battery, New Alternator, 5 New Spark Plugs, 5 New Ignition Coils, New Boost Sensor & a New Timing Belt. Reported that only 3 cylinders were firing up and that the battery voltage was low
. Called Shop #1 and discussed it. Then towed the car home where my boyfriend and I are giving it a go. (I thank God that towing is covered by my insurance! And that my boyfriend is a super amazing man to help me with this!)-Towed Vivo Home: battery is actually dead now
for some reason, wasn't dead when we towed it to shop #2. Took battery to AutoZone to charge it. Picking it up tomorrow. Ordered 5 spark plugs and 2 ignition coils from FCP. Boyfriend removed the 5 ignition coils today and we will take ignition coils to Autozone tomorrow to test but first need to know the "resistance/ohm" we should look for if the ignition coils are good vs bad
Anybody know? All advice welcome!
