Re: 98 XC: My First Build- Resurrection of the Cloud: Update 1

Update! I bought 1996 960 Saloon. My new plan is to buy a jy 2.3 motor (with 16t), put new steering rack and AC parts in, put on new timing belt and basics of 2.3, and drop it all in. Not going crazy on all the new parts. $800-1000 instead of $1800.

You can keep the turbine wheel and lil rusty middle nugget from the 16T. But you'll have to source a compressor wheel and cover for the 18T and those are not easy to find on their own. If you can find an 18T at all, it'll probably be a complete unit. By the time you buy a rebuild kit and get the th...

ISO WTB 850 or sv70

The 90s FWD/AWD Volvos are my favorite! I want to buy a 90s model! $1500 budget. Sedan is fine, wagon preferable. Auto is fine, standard/manual preferable. 1994-1997 Volvo 850, 1998 Volvo SV70. I may even consider a 1996-97 960/1998 SV90. NOTHING PAST 1998! No transmission issues, no power steering ...

Do the door locks all close with the fob?

When you say the alarm does not work, what do you expect from it?

I didn't give enough time for it to set. the sound doesn't work but the flashers do.

yep I JUST 'broke' into my car and the lights immediately started flashing. I was expecting the horn to honk with it though. Is there an issue if it doesn't sound the alarm or is that the way it is?

98 XC: alarm not working

I finally got the hatch latch replaced and the dash light has gone off. I can finally get lights put in the back. now that I can lock my car, the alarm does not work. if I lock it with the key or the button inside, and then attempt to 'break into it' on the driver side, it does not trip the alarm.

You will need to perform a voltage drop test and aternator output when everything is warmed up(after about 30min.of driving),without turning the engine off.
the battery is brand new. I hope it's not that.

I have been watching The Simpsons for the last 4 months and I have seen more older Volvos in this show than in the state of Oklahoma.
