1999 S70 GLT… Where to start?

New MVS member shertzog bought a 1999 S70 GLT with almost 300k miles, and he’s been fixing it up: new spark plugs, new coolant tank, new headlight bulbs. Repaired: j-hose. Painted: headlight reflectors.

290,600 miles, white/tan (leather in front seats pretty beat up).

Coolant in cylinder 3 on 1999 S70
Coolant in cylinder 3, oh no. HG starting to leak (bit of misfire/white smoke on cold starts).

new plugs (. – $5/pr Amazon – with a $2/pair rebate!)
New coolant tank (Carparts.com – ~$23 with s/h)

Painted faded reflectors gloss white, helped some.

Ordered a pair of TYC with glass lenses ( ~$150 for the pair. I couldn’t bring myself to drop the big $ on the beautiful C-70 jewel upgrades).

Made a side-of-the-road repair (with self-stick silicone tape) to the infamous J-tube EVAP hose (which hopefully clears teh P0455 Gross leak EVAP code, the only code currently keeping me from registering it!)
