Re: New Member New to Volvo

Temp fix, if you aren’t in crazy dusty areas Jam a half gallon polyethylene milk jug into the engine compartment. Run a hose from the dipstick tube into the milk jug. Drill a hole into the oil filler cap, screw Inc a fitting And run another hose into the jug. Keep that pressure down in the engine b...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

To everyone who posted: Huge thanks. Really. So I’m trying to be lazy. I’ve owned this car for 3000 miles so far and paid to replace the vvti gaskets and the gas tank gasket. I should have done it myself, but on top of my job I run a landscaping business that I can’t keep up with and I’m building a ...

If the glove inflate, guess you are due to do the clogged PCV breather system.
What do I need to do?

Re: New Member New to Volvo

EGR glove test Note. The EGR system can get clogged, then blow seals resulting in engine oil leaks. This is due to excess pressure in the engine. A rubber glove over the oil filler hole should not inflate when the engine runs. If it does then the EGR service should be done urgently. In the meantime,...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

Oil leak You have probably already done this, but change the oil. You mention you smelt burning and saw a very low level. 1. If the oil did 'cook', it can have lost some of its lubrication and you want that replaced before excessive engine wear occurs. 2. If you added 5w-20, then that is not the ri...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

I forgot to add- the resonator on the car was changed to a long glass pack and the weld looks like exhaust leaks and spiny raccoon scat. I’m going to have the shop remove the factory y pipe and 2” oval exhaust for 2.5” straight to a y tip. No muffler.

This is probably a few weeks out.

Re: New Member New to Volvo

The car is put back together and the vvt is working noticeably better without the huge leaks. This might be all in my head but my butt dyno says it’s healthy. I need to get beneath it to spray all the old remaining oil that’s on it off to check for more leaks. I need to get this u see control before...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

I guess I’ll find out if the leaks stop tomorrow and change the oil. The color of the oil is still newish. I know the oil cap says castrol on it. Is Castrol the best choice for a car with 175k? I think the other seals are good but I’ll find out once the lock rings are removed. There’s no splash guard.

Re: New Member New to Volvo

My wife’s been driving my truck because her car smells like gas. I decided to start looking into the gas and oil leaks. I sprayed a few ounces of simple green all over the motor and turbo while the car was cold to clean all the oil off to find leaks easy. I found the vvt solenoid leaking all over. I...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

I’ve got this figured out. Here’s the harness I put together. There’s a lot going on. This picture is before the friction tape. Please let me know if you have any questions. I’m gonna explain the taps coming off the harness: 1. Fused wire is from the switched power or remote on. This goes to the bac...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

To have the backup light come on automatically I need to tap the reverse lights. I have a red wire on trigger wire near the radio that I need to hook up and 3 wires in the back. The 3 wires I need to tap at the back of the car are a reverse wire trigger, reverse + and a ground. It’s in the back hatc...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

The YouTube video above doesn’t seem to work out the same. I got a bunch of wires under the seats but I’m not sure what they’re for and I may have just wasted time pulling them out.

Please someone help. I haven’t found the answers in the search yet.

Re: New Member New to Volvo

Here are a few pictures of the install- The green connector with the most wires is the OEM. The green with few wires is from Crutchfield these wires are 12+, ground, remote on, power antenna. The gray is also from crutchfield. These 2 long leads are for the backup camera. I don’t understand what the...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

Guys I really like Crutchfield. They make installs really easy on just about everything I’ve worked on until this car. I even bought the ready harness service. My install on the spyder took maybe 30 mins using the ready harness service. My wife wanted a radio with GPS and a backup camera. I’ve got t...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

My first 2 concerns are the oil burning and the gas leak. 1. Should I drop the tank and look for cracks? How do I do that and how do I fix a crack I find? 2. The oil burning is a leak somewhere under the hood. BMWs are known for valve cover gasket and oil Filter housing gaskets failing on all used c...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

It’s leaking from under the car. It’s the gas tank but I’m not sure where. I haven’t really looked. I smelled burning oil when I stopped today. The oil was near the bottom of the ok marks. I topped it off with 5w-20. I got pictures of the dash lights. I still haven’t fixed anything. Here’s some pic...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

The oil level is always at the top of the mark on the dip stick. I started using steering wheel controls yesterday and all functions were working. I’ll take a look at the struts but the car is handling great. It’s the smoothest car I’ve ever been in. Contrast it to my moms 2007 Caddy DTS and the Vol...

New Member New to Volvo

Howdy. My wife’s daily driver Prius was lost to flooding streets a few Fridays back. I bought her a volvo v70r from a Swede last week. It has some dash lights on and one that comes and goes. She’s afraid to drive it now because of the codes. The messages say- 1. Chassis settings service chassis 2. S...
