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...

Re: 1998 S90 alternator output

Ok, so if I should be seeing 13.5v or higher at about 1500rpm, then I can check for that. Thanks.

1998 S90 alternator output

Wondering what you all consider a normal output range for the alternator on a 1998 S90? Car has been driving fine and no warning lights. But we had a dead battery due to a light being left on, and so I am checking the battery and charging system. During testing on the alternator, I am seeing voltage...

Re: 98 S90 ATF dripping from some hose

Was able to inspect today and the leak is coming from the servo cover in the upper left of the first photo posted above. Fluid is seeping out and, thanks to the wind, running down lip of the pan towards the back of the pan and also getting on the cables adjacent to the pan lip. Going to check on rep...

Re: 98 S90 ATF dripping from some hose

You are correct. That is not a hose. It's wiring from the O2 sensors. Looks like that pan has been sealed. You can now get a rubber seal that works much better than the old sealant you used to have to use. Thanks for confirming that. And yes the pan was sealed due to a leak about 10 years ago. That...
