Volvo forum member (now Contributor) Kickin It joins out memberlist, and within 48 hours posts a very useful DIY tutorial on how to replace the J-hose on 1998-2000 Gen. 1 FWD Volvos. It may be a record. Either way, thanks KI.
Replacing the J-hose on a 1998-2000 S70/V70/XC70 family is common simply because the J-hose is a common failure point in the EVAP system and will trigger a pesky P0422 or others, and then Check Engine Light.
“My first post and I thought I would try to help others even though there are countless other tutorials. I am driving a 1998 Volvo S70 GLT with 262k miles. Never had any major problems, mileage issue arose such as the heater core failure and what not. Anyways, trying to pass emission test in Nashville, (Franklin) Tennessee. Failed and given the dreaded P0442 trouble code, found this site and off we went with the repair.”
