Re: Random no start

No one ever had anything like this happen? I am not able to fix it now but was hoping someone would have an idea at least. Sometimes I guess its just one of those things that is a rarity that know one understands, hopefully after I am on my feet again I will figure it out. I hope everyone here has a...

Random no start

Well we got the new top installed, have not been able to put the weather stripping on though because I recently found out I have spinal stenosis which was caused by my scoliosis which was caused from trauma from a helicopter crash back in 93 and it's to the point I have bad pinched nerve pain, Docto...

Enjoying the C70

Just wanted to say hi to those of you that have helped me get the C70 back on the road, we truly have been enjoying it. This has got to be one of the coolest little sports cars I have ever driven and performance wise it was surprising for Volvo, at least for me it was, the car handles very well, not...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Re: Coolant Recovery tank

Does the video show the coolant level when cold or hot. It is too high if this is a cold engine. Remove fluid until the level is at the seam between the top and lower portion of the reservoir. That is the MAX fill line. If that is the action on a cold engine it looks like high pressure is entering ...

Re: Coolant Recovery tank

https://youtu.be/77fw5oPerUE Is the level at half the bottle when cold in the morning? Perhaps air is back feeding into the system potentially causing a problem? I didn't see the cap leaking? Clean engine compartment! * * Expansion Tank.png * The video had to but cut because it was 20 seconds long ...

Re: Coolant Recovery tank

But save the heartache, just pop for the OEM stuff, Whiteblocks DO NOT tolerate overheating. don't play Coolant Roulette, as Robert calls it. The plastic quality needs to be there, and the caps do degrade, even green OEM ones. If your old one is 20 years old, how long will a new OEM cap last, 20 ye...
