Re: Speed sensitive vs standard steering rack?

I know I'm reviving an old thread but I just ordered a rack from RackDoctor ('04 V70 2.5T). I blew up the picture they have of their rack and it's identical to mine, including the small numbers. Keeping fingers crossed. I've already been sent the wrong rack by Cardone through Rock Auto and also sent...

Re: 2008 Volvo S40 Won’t start

Had something similar on a different car recently. The alternator had seized up. Have someone check when you try to start the car that the alternator is spinning with the belt. If not, this could be a fairly simple fix.

Re: 2007 C70, Timing?

Tight tension does not mean it didn't jump timing.
I'll keep fingers crossed. Please post back as to what happened!

Re: Control arm bushings bad?

Yes- doesn't look good at all. I replaced mine ('07 S40 T5) with beefed up ones for the new C70. This was from Tasca Parts.com (no spaces). Of course you don't mention which vehicle this is for so these may not fit yours.

Re: Sale/Trade or Gift - '98 S70 GLT - 154K miles

Needs Timimg Belt at those miles or was it done not long ago (interval is every 70k and water pump and tensioner at 140k)? Just curios as that could be a deal-breaker even as a gift if the giftee is without funds. Still, very generous of you!

Re: P2 cloth A-pillar cover retrofit with plastic

I did this too on my son’s S60. Just be aware that those sitting in a junk yard for a long time can be brittle. I broke one trying to fit it and had to go back for another. Also there is the clear ticket clip attached near the dash on the driver’s side. If it’s broken- no worries. You can get a repl...

Re: Transmission flush question

Just did a flush on my son's S60.... worked without a hitch! The color of the liquid changed dramatically! We decided to do this after 50K miles (last time) because he's been pulling a trailer with his S60 for his lawn business. Just a reminder- if you're doing something that requires your car to wo...

Re: C30 Lazy Acceleration Topic is solved

Great this was solved!! In the original post, "bad gas" was mentioned. I had an incident with one of my other Volvo's a couple of years ago with gas that had water in it sold to me and I got a check engine light and a no-start condition. After draining all my gas from the car and refilling with good...
