Re: Wastegate flapper

Yep, you're right. My bad! Still not ideal I'd say though.

Re: Wastegate flapper

That's odd. I'd be concerned about that JB Weld inside the housing coming loose and breaking apart after so many heat cycles. Debris like that would not be great to hit spinning turbines and go down the intake into engine.

Re: 1999 V70 XC AWD AW50-42LE no fourth gear

Hey there. How many miles on this beast? The transmissions on the 98-00 XCs are pretty robust and it's not super common to have issues on them for the most part. First need to start with the basics, like do we know if the PO did drain and fills with the correct fluid? I would assume so, since it doe...

Re: 2000 V70 XC FWD from AWD) Big Transmission Leak,

So I've had my angle gear out for years. I'll tell you that no adhesive or anything will keep that spline in where it should be. The most effective method is using two larger hose clamps wound into eachother, clamped around the axle. Push it up against the angle gear sleeve to hold it in place and t...

On the driver's side?

I wouldn't mess with aftermarket. Pay once and do it right with an OEM seal.

Re: 2000 V70 XC FWD from AWD) Big Transmission Leak,

Hey there fellow 2000 XC dude. The transmission on your car is pretty bulletproof for the most part. I just had mine replaced at 280K due to a pretty bad internal leak, but I towed with it and did heavy driving for all of its years and it still shifted great, even as it was replaced. As far as leaks...

Re: What are these and what do they do?

Temperature sensors. One is for the display in the car, and I think the other is for the ECU (could be wrong). There should be little holes on each side in the air guide where they clip in.

Re: quick AT/ATF question Topic is solved

Normal. These cars don't really have ATF filters, so as the miles add up, bits of metal wear/tear add up and create an exponential cycle of wear. I've been using a Magnefine inline filter on mine that features more powerful magnetic filter and to a paper element. In my mind, it's far better to have...

Re: 99 s70 died on highway : multiple codes Topic is solved

Sounds electrical to me. The P80s, especially 99-2000 get really weird with bad electrics. How old is the battery? Is the alternator original? When mine died, I got all sort of lights and eventually found myself coasting as well. I'd suspect alternator, but also if your charging cables are original,...
