Re: Which XC70 Year is best/least worrisome?

We have two XC70 T6s: 2013 and 2015. These are beautiful, practical station wags. I live in a major metro area on West Coast, and I had to buy out-of-town both times. Not too many were made for North America....guessing 7500 / year. My advice is to research all the options you need or desire (e.g., ...

Re: Free Volvo USA Towing for Breakdowns

There is a 25 mile limit on the Tow For Life free towing service. And the destination must be an authorized Volvo service shop.

Fuel Pressure Erratic during startup

This is a 2015.5 XC70 T6. A couple of months ago, I noticed that it was taking longer for the engine to "catch" (begin firing) during startup cranking. It was delayed by an extra second or two. This didn't happen on every start up. Cold starts were normal, as were warm starts. But, if the car had be...

Re: 2012 XC60 Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor replacement

Paul's method for first depressurizing the fuel rail is only as good as having the correct fuse box defs for your specific model & year. (2015 and 2015.5 owners - these are two different MYs). Your verification of having pulled the correct fuse out is that the engine stalls out shortly after startin...

Re: xc70 2008 any insights

Some thoughts on buying your first P3 Volvo: You're driving experience with the 2006 XC70 (a turbo w/ AWD) might leave you disappointed with the 3.2 I-6 engine. You should test drive the 3.2 vs. the T6, so you can compare them for driving feel. Buying the first production year (2008) for the P3 XC70...

Re: Got a "new" volvo and I am very disappointed

The common element in your ABS and AWD systems is the Hall Effect wheel sensors. If you can hook up to VIDA, you'll get detailed info. If a wheel sensor is bad, it'll say which wheel. Please stop referring to AWD as "4 wheel drive". The latter implies a hard mechanical linkage of torque to all 4 whe...

Re: 2007 S80 awd v8 no radio nav module?

How did this S80 lose this module? Why is it being put up for sale in this condition? If this was car-parts theft, the title and Carfax history may come with permanent blemishes. I'd be looking for red-flags in the documentation -- those cannot be fixed at any price.

Re: 2007 S80 3.2 Auto FWD -- Engine Air Cleaner Topic is solved

Be thinking about passing smog test with whatever repair you do. The air cleaner box costs about $180, and is very easy to replace.
If the smog inspector sees a DIY repair, they will usually flag it (part of visual inspection).

Re: V8 overheating engine 2010 180K km Topic is solved

Have you looked at the condition of the radiator fins? The Volvo P3 radiator has very delicate, aluminum fins...they bend flat with little force. I had about 50% of mine flattened on a used 2013 XC70 I bought. I had to open up these fins to airflow, or else coolant on the verge of boilover in summer...
