Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

I like that blue. What is the colour code on that? Lol, wasn't sure if you were referring to my car or not We were! The code is on the plate inside the left front fender, under hood. That’s a rare colour for an S70 and the year of champions and Princes I think you have the Columba wheels on that to...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Well, I replaced my heater hose firewall coupler and gave my S70 a much needed wash.

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

You checked the wastegate with the pressure setting, correct? Most Mityvac models only do vacuum. I believe the GLT should be set to 2 PSI, but I'd have to confirm that. Yes, the mightyvac I used only has a vacuum gauge on it. I basically wanted to check if the diaphragm was leaking, which it is no...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

The wastegate flap itself moves around freely when it's open, so that's normal. However while the WG is closed, it should be held on there tight. If you're referring to the arm, that could possibly be creating a weak seal if it moves around with the actuator connected. Keep us posted! Yes the waste...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Well I unplugged my TCV electrically, which should directly link the red and yellow vacuum hoses. Now I get progressive boost to about 3psi with no spikes at all. So either my new TVS is defective or my original one was defective and I didn't notice it because my wastegate actuator is not adjusted ...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Is that right? Is default no power setting on a TCV connecting full boost to wastegate? I though it dumped to blue/ Snorkel I believe when it is disconnected electrically, it defaults to full pressure to the wastgate (same as connecting the wastegate actuator directly to the turbo), which will keep...

Probably something simple, but a pain to pinpoint. That's usually the case with boost issues! Well I unplugged my TCV electrically, which should directly link the red and yellow vacuum hoses.

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Installed a Boost gauge on my 99 GLT. The main reason why I installed it was to diagnose an issue that I was having. I learned a few things... I am over boosting on initial acceleration, then boost cut kicks in at around 10 or 11 psi (depending on how accurate the gauge is). If I feather the throttl...

Re: Excess Gas consumption

You should fill fuel tank to FULL, then drive the vehicle. I would wait at least 200 miles, then fill the tank to FULL. See how many gallons it took to fill the tank to FULL. Divide the amount of miles from how many gallons, there is your MPG. Driving style can be a big factor in fuel mileage. I kee...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

I think I will just try and swap over the skins if I can't find a set just as good. I would prefer to just swap the seats as an assembly, but the Local Junkyards have either the wrong color or worse than the ones I currently have. I just need to buy a hog ring plier set and some hog rings. Thanks fo...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

How is everyone doing today ? Well today I attempted to install some seats that I bought a couple of days ago. These seats are in very good condition in comparison to the ones I have in the car. I wish I would have done more research.... I should have done more research on the differences in the SIP...
