Re: Fuel filler door locking delay programming

My car locks the flap if I move forward from one pump to the next, seems like putting it in D signals the lock.

Re: possible fix for slow tire leak

Sounds like a plan, just not in this weather, water in the garage only comes in chunks until april.

possible fix for slow tire leak

I was chatting to a volvo nerd at the store today, I told him about a wheel that always leaks air overnite, very annoying having to inflate it every time I have to run to the store. He said its a common problem with alloy wheels and suggested I install an innertube. My current tire has very few mile...

you can buy almost all the tools needed for $500 if you stay away from fancy lithium impacts, those are not really needed anyway.
I don't see any way of owning these cars without getting your hands mucky.

Re: O3 s60 turbo.

put it on youtube and link it. when I had steam from the tailpipe it was the turbo seal passing coolant into the exh. Better to get a definitive diagnosis, did the mechanic do a compression or leakdown test ? Why would you do valve work if its just a gasket job. I believe if its a gasket problem the...

Re: Fuel Filter replacement problem '05 XC70

Hammer the closest size box wrench on the head and apply turning pressure as you hit it with air hammer.

Re: 2007 XC70: Battery drains overnight, high pitch whine under the hood

Yeh, theres a small nicad in the alarm module inside the fender liner, passenger side.
Thats probably due for replacement after 13 yrs too. But not the source of the drain.

Interior lights should go out in a few minutes, close the doors .
Maybe run the outsides the hatch.

Re: Leak from pipe under turbo.

Very few tools needed. a small sharp screwdriver, to remove the clamps. Steel wool, or wet/dry paper to clean the corrosion from pipe ends. 2 screw type hose clamps. I prefer tightening the replacement clamp with a small socket ratchet wrench, using the screwdriver slot on the new clamp can be too f...

Re: 2007 XC70: Battery drains overnight, high pitch whine under the hood

the computer box cooling fan may cycle on and off after shut down by design. Its located in front of the power steering reservoir. Circuitry is switched by grounding the neg wire, its always powered up, an exposed grounded wire could turn things on continuously. That particular 5amp fuse is in the e...

Re: Lower control arm and Ball Joint replacement with pictures

$ 17 is a very low price, I recall paying over $60 for one ball joint 3 years ago.
