If you’re looking to change the coolant (antifreeze) on your modern Volvo, slow your roll! There’s a couple things you need to know beforehand that could save you major frustration, and possibly even ruining your beautiful automobile. MVS user headrc recently asked the MVS forum how to open the draincock on his 2012 Volvo XC70 […]
Volvo’s history is intrinsically intertwined with the 5-cylinder engine. More than any other auto maker (besides maybe Audi), Volvo’s name has become almost synonymous with this rather idiosyncratic engine over the last 30 years.

The new CMA platform page is up, and it details what we know about Volvo’s platform for the smaller Volvos coming out this year and in the next decade (possibly more).

Any suggestions for something up to maybe a 100.00 or less if it’s good, this OBDII is mostly for self but sometimes I do side jobs for people. Appreciate any opinions, thanks.
