Re: Mystery liquid below front of engine

Hey guy, just following up with looking into what's going on with the leak. Apparently it's an oil leak and I believe it is the camshaft seals, so it looks like it'll need a pre-mature timing belt job. I'm gonna have my inde mech look at it and do the job since it's not something you'd want to make ...

Re: Volvo wiring / electronics not great? [Unpopular opinion/Rant]

A lot of the connections are slapped with the Ford label so the fault should lie on Ford. How does it compare to ford's models in the 2000's?

Re: S60 T5 gas leak

Looks like ebay is super cheap. $75 Not sure if the tank is suppose to be plastic or metal based. You're gonna need to give the VIN to a dealer to confirm. Then you'll need to get an indie mechanic to do the job unless you got a fancy lift. https://www.ebay.com/itm/174595389442?chn=ps&norover=1&mkev...

Re: S60 T5 gas leak

Let's get the obvious out of the way. Did you buy it from a dealer and are willing to return it? Claim it as a lemon. Did you check with a mechanic before you bought the car? Otherwise, your car is pissing it's gas like you owe it money. I don't even think this is a DIY job someone else is gonna hav...

Re: Mystery liquid below front of engine

Little update Timing belt, gears, and cover are all dry to the bone. And both resivoirs are dry underneath so there's a bigger chance that it could be the harmonic balancers seal, but no way to know until i get in there. Popped in more pictures showing the passenger side of the subframe is coated wi...
