Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Today my cars ac wasn't kicking on. I shut the engine, pulled the ac fuse (fine), pulled the relay and shook it (no rattle), and pulled the little electric wire that runs to the compressor and reconnected. Restarted the car and the ac kicked on but was cycling at idle, on the highway it stayed on wi...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

That's fair, I did notice a clear change in the Volvo indie's attitude towards me when I told him I had done my own headgasket and resealed my oil pan myself. I'm actually happy to pay for diagnostics because I lack the experience to be able to identify issues. I'm great with following Haynes instru...

Re: Head gasket etc..

I used the Ellis cam seals that came with a FCP timing belt kit. Mine is non-turbo and again with no vvt. I haven't had any problems as far as I can tell over the last 7k miles or so. Plus with the FCP warranty as you mentioned, they'll be free to replace as long as you don't mind doing the work

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

So I'm just curious: it looks like car maintenance in the USA is way more expensive than over here in the EU. Again: it looks like that's the case. Anyone in the USA that wants to inform this Dutchie on the way how things are done overseas? :) There have been a couple of studies in the U.S. that pr...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Did the dual mass flywheel, clutch/pressure plate, internal slave cylinder, a hydraulic clutch line, harmonic balancer, and replaced the right drive shaft and alllll the seals.
