Re: Volvo Findings! (What have you found on Craigslist?)

Someone posted this engine for $75 south of Boston not sure if it goes to these cars.

Re: General Tips for DIY Head Gasket Replacement - 99 s70 na

Abscate I can always count on you for the tips! Blackbart someone is about to lend me a leakdown tester so I'm going to try that just to make sure. My fiance and I share another car but don't actually need any car to get to either of our jobs. There's some tools on the DIY I haven't seen before for ...

Hello everyone, I've been working on my 99 s70 na m56 (207k miles) and really enjoying it, but i'm coming to reality with what i believe is a head gasket leak, which i'm hoping to DIY myself.

Re: AC Delete 99 S70 N/A - (Seized Compressor)

Abscate - thanks for the offer, is this for clearing the lines? Or just to put a vacuum back on the system? I actually come back to Boston Nov 5th, so if you're up for it I'd be happy to meet you somewhere. Rick - yeah unfortunately I don't have that routing, but thanks for posting for anyone who mi...

AC Delete 99 S70 N/A - (Seized Compressor)

Unfortunately I didn't manage any photos, but I'm posting this to confirm that it's possible to delete the AC on a 99 S70 base. It is done by replacing the AC compressor with a bracket and pulley, and sourcing new bolts. The bracket and pulley comes from non AC models (I read it was only sold in Eur...

Re: Intermittent low knocking from engine bay, heard when hot and at idle - s70 NA Manual

Just to update this. The noise got really really loud and no longer intermittent. My car ended up having a no-start issue which I eventually found out was caused by a seized ac compressor. So, not sure which came first, since the mechanics did seem adamant that there was play in the alternator pulle...

Re: Wipers and Washers stopped working (after jump start) - 99 S70 NA

Forgot to get back to this, looks like I had replaced the wrong fuse when this issue popped up. I went back to check it and found the blown wiper/horn fuse. Replaced that and it all works well now. Obviously this was a clear problem with a clear solution, so ce they're on the same fuse, but a simple...

Re: Car Stranded - Won't start, no click, lights on, no push start - 99 s70 base manual trans

So I ended up putting a 49 inch single sided belt to have the power steering, I'm driving it home this afternoon. The AC worked pretty well when I bought it, but yeah looking into it looks like a more involved job with alot more replacement parts. I'd prefer to just drive it through the winter, mayb...

Re: Car Stranded - Won't start, no click, lights on, no push start - 99 s70 base manual trans

Thanks for the compliment, it definitely felt good! For the AC compressor, I appreciate the offer! I'm curious how I should diagnose if the AC compressor is bad or if I can get away with just doing the clutch. I'll look through the service records to see if the current one has been replaced, maybe I...

Re: Car Stranded - Won't start, no click, lights on, no push start - 99 s70 base manual trans

Solved! Sort of lol So I replaced the starter with a used+tested unit and ended up replacing the battery because turns out mine was dead. At that point it still wasn't turning over, so my friend came over and we took the timing belt cover off and saw everything was lined up, but the accessory belt w...
