What did you do to your Volvo today?

I've mostly been a lurker on this forum for many years and have never seen a thread of this type so I decided to start one. Hopefully it can perpetuate itself.

Re: 95 850 Turbo Mystery Line

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

Put the final touches on my timing belt job that included timing belt, serpentine belt, water pump, hydraulic tensioner, tensioner pulley and idler pulley. Maybe it's psychological but I swear she starts up easier and idles smoother now.
