Re: Help with pulled codes

Yes jimmy57, I read your original reply and POOF- it was gone. 'Twas very confusing as I wanted to show it to someone. Not the first time posts have vanished here. Also, I forgot to mention that the radio is dead. I checked the fuse. There's a rear camera and the radio has a small screen built in. A...

Help needed with code indentification

Hello, We're on our 3rd V70 but today I looked at a 2004 XC-90 for sale at a local gas station. It has the same 5 cylinder engine I'm driving now. It drove quite well though it had no discernible turbo boost. It shifted well, had clean oil on the dipstick though a few chunks of build-up on the fille...

Re: PCV breather box replacment pdf/slide show

To Mikele82 and everyone else. I saw, drove and pulled codes from the XC-90 today.
There were 17 codes several of which were seemingly connected. There were a few I didn't have a clue about.
I starting a new thread for it for clarity.

Please read it and help my sorry....you know. G&K

Re: Ford power steering fluid?

Old red trannie fluid is how I got my first V70. A guy's "buddies" tended his car at the hanger where he worked. The pump grew noisy. I bought the car and a flush with Volvo fluid silenced it for 40K....then it died. The junk yard pump had pale green fluid dripping from it. I used and have been usin...

Re: Switching to synthetic oil...

Since it was serviced regularly there shouldn't be any globs of sludge in it. Also, given that all this stuff has improved immeasurably over the life of this car AND that you don't live in Death Valley or the North Pole, sticking with a good quality (no bargain weirdo brands) conventional would be O...

Re: 2001 V70, low-ish miles, owner says it needs a new cat. Am I nuts to consider?

Being appreciably in-the-know helps a lot. It sounds like you can attach (and add up) $ numbers to various scenarios. Have you seen the car? So much sounds superficial. A HG failure or something real wierd (?) killed the cat. You'll be weighing the price of some other car with AT LEAST the ~$1,000 +...

Thanks

Re: 2000 v70 timing marks

As usual, abscate's responses are right on. The words I'd use to describe the crank marking is that it's a scratch down in the valley between two teeth of the sprocket. I was AMAZED at how "hidden in plain sight" it was. Align the top two marks then with a flashlight and a "long throw" magnifying gl...
