Re: 2013A XC90 - Exhaust after POR-15 44316 Aluminum High Temperature Paint

Just be aware that I don't know the flash point, if any, of Fluid Film and exhausts can, as you know, get quite hot.

Soak the expletive out of it with Fluid Film sprayed from a rattle can. You could also use Woolwax, although I have never used it. Fluid film smells like sheep. Woolwax isn't supposed to have much odor.

Re: Brake caliper binding/sticking after hard braking

The soft brake hoses can collapse internally with no outward indication. Have the soft hoses been replaced? From my mechanic, I understand that hydraulic pressure applied by stepping on the brake pedal is sufficient to apply braking force, but there is no corresponding pressure to release the brakes...

Have you changed the engine coolant temperature sensor? That has been a source of hard starts for me.
