Re: What OBDII Scanner Should I Get?

eightfifty2x0, To answer your question... I think most USA '96-97 850 owners probably use a scan tool >= 1 time per year. Since 2012, I needed to use a scan tool multiple times per year (while I owned my USA '96 850 T5 and/or '98 S70 GLT). If your car has the in-cabin OBDII port, and if you have an...

Re: What OBDII Scanner Should I Get?

Alright, i got a question. How often does one need to read the codes? Is it worth it to pay some 200€ for an OBD2 reader? Because, it all comes down to long term costs of using it. If used rarely, then, i guess, a mechanic is the best choice. But if i need it once or twice in a year, then i have to ...

Re: New 850. What stuff are a MUST to replace/repair if the maintenance history is unknown?

I’m pretty sure you should Not be driving after your third belt ? Sorry,language barrier. InAmerican English , a “ belt” is slang for a alcoholic drink, usually hard liquor. Zum Beispiel “ Matt looked at all the standard shift 5 speed Volvos, felt sad, got his bottle of SCHNAPP’s, and had a belt.” ...

Re: New 850. What stuff are a MUST to replace/repair if the maintenance history is unknown?

Maybe I missed it, but how many miles are on your car ? Unknown. The odometer gear failed. It literally became like plastiline. So soft that it felt apart. Gotta now read the milage from the board computer. It broken at aroun 211.000km, but the previous owner says he has got it till around 250.000km.

Re: New 850. What stuff are a MUST to replace/repair if the maintenance history is unknown?

I don't think you'd have any problem with the fuel pump etc. I'd have a shop do the other two repairs, based on what erikv11 has said. You'll have plenty of other repair / maintenance things to work on yourself. :) I guess i will leave the task for a pro. I could and i would definitely would do all...
