Re: very slow ATF leak on 1998 S90

Will check the shift shaft seal again. No sign of leak near front of transmission. Must be coming from above the pan.

very slow ATF leak on 1998 S90

We have a very slow leak of ATF fluid. When I say slow, I mean I don't get any drops on the ground after a drive but I do see fluid accumulating on cables that run alongside driver side of ATF pan. If I wipe the cables and edge of the pan clean, then after another drive and wipe off, I get a very sm...

Re: 98 S90 leak from power steering reservoir

Instead of replacing the hose, it is getting a second chance. Shaved a little off the end and reattached with same clamp. Will see if if it holds.

98 S90 leak from power steering reservoir

1998 S90 with 114k miles. Spotted this pattern indicative of a leak on my power steering reservoir over the weekend. PS fluid level is still above the fill line (not too low) so it appears to be a slow leak at least so I wasn't in a rush. wide.jpg close.jpg Upon further inspection today, there is fl...

Re: 1998 S90 alternator output

The belt was replaced a few months ago and seem to be fine. No issues with PS pump, and even when battery went south and alternator was only putting out ~12.7v (due to load from very low battery), there was never an issue with electronics while driving the car. So I don't think the belt was the issu...

Re: 1998 S90 alternator output

So I swapped out the battery this weekend. Old battery was only showing 10.6v with 15CCA left. Took it to NAPA for a warranty swap and they didn't even bother with charging to test it - figured it was a bad cell for the CCA to get so low. At any rate, got a decent prorated credit towards a new NAPA ...

Re: 1998 S90 alternator output

There should be a rod, looking like an EYE bolt that holds the battery down with metal plate. Most rust away and break off. I drilled some holes and use metal strap to hold mine in place under and over. The metal under my battery was all rusted out. Had to do some sheet metal work. Oh boy, I will b...

Re: 1998 S90 alternator output

Somewhat of a related question since I am new to Volvo, I was planning to pull out the battery this weekend to charge and test it and possibly replace. But at first glance, there does not appear to be a battery hold down bracket on top. Does Volvo not use a bracket across the top of the battery? Per...

Re: 1998 S90 alternator output

Thanks for the info. I will check the AC V if the voltage is lower than desired.

Re: 1998 S90 alternator output

Just realized that the dead battery probably created additional load on the alternator and could explain a voltage drop. The testing was done after a jump start and short drive but the battery was only 10v. So to be fair to the alternator, I need to charge the battery (or replace if bad) before judg...
