Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

Yes, the difference is in the CV not in the axle shaft. You can also swap whole axles between NA and turbo cars, but not recommended to put the smaller NA CV axle in a turbo.

You can measure the diameter of the CV while it is in the car, that way you can figure out if it is turbo or NA axle.

Re: General Tips for DIY Head Gasket Replacement - 99 s70 na

Those compression readings sure do look like a head gasket failure. It’s a big labor job, but it’s stupid labor Document everything with Picture Notepad Plastic bags labeled with sharpie referenced to notes If you measure and note each fastener with size and length, you can ID any leftover parts.

Re: leaking gas very urgent

Actually I have not heard of issues with any fuel pump flange on 850's. There is a big circular nut (flange nut?) or collar, I wouldn't be surprised if those have indeed broken a few times as they can get pounded on pretty haphazardly in removal and install, but I haven't actually heard of any failu...

Re: leaking gas very urgent

First step go in through the fuel pump access hole and investigate. Hopefully it is just the rubber gasket at the top of the fuel pump i.e. replace it with a new one. Buy a Volvo branded gasket only for this one. This gasket fixes most of the leaks without any need to drop the tank. But if it doesn'...

Re: 850 GLT What is this piece? Topic is solved

I have one of those relays, it is nice to be able to control the length of the lag time between wiper swipes.

They are commonly known as "Volkswagen 99" relays on eBay or at the junkyard. Just pop it in, it works.

Re: Volvo Findings! (What have you found on Craigslist?)

I won't buy this one, but would welcome opinions on this (or any) P3 V70: https://desmoines.craigslist.org/cto/d/ ... 51590.html

How is the inline 6? Seems like a total gas hog.

Re: Volvo Findings! (What have you found on Craigslist?)

.... In looking at all the Volvos recently I think I am down to the XC90, C30 and S80. Maybe a S70. All the others have rear seats for children only. Even then their legs in a booster is cramped against the back of the front seats. The C30 has an amazing amount of rear head and leg room. Wide also ...

Re: Front brake piston stuck

If you get new calipers, grab the caliper slide pins from your factory ones. The pins on the rebuilds are usually pot metal junk.

Yes they will take the caliper as a core without slide pins. Because they're going to put in junk pins at the reman shop ...

Re: 1996 (corrected) 850 NA hot stalling

At least it's just a knock sensor here - the only effect corrosion would have is a knock sensor code, rather than any actual engine function. In this case of course. I agree, dirty connectors are giving more and more issues these days, they are showing up a fair bit on the forums. People really like...
