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

What Ed said. Don't waste your time with anything but either Volvo or Corteco. The Volvo seal is made by Corteco.

Re: 850 T5 ABS Woes

It sounds like you've got the idea right: You test resistance on the harness connector, with the module unplugged. So you actually probe the sockets (connector), not the pins (module). The sockets are numbered according to the module pin that plugs into the, So for 11 and 4, figure out the socket fo...

Re: 96 850 no spark

... The owner also said last year he had to turn the key back off then back on before it would do anything but it hasnt done it for a year or more. Ignition switch maybe? ... Given that the electrical part of this switch is extremely common to fail, if troubleshooting is going nowhere I'd swap in a...

Re: Ford power steering fluid?

Yeah well, I definitely wouldn't just add ATF, as stated.

And the owner's manual is well known to be wrong about ATF in the power steering reservoir for the 01-04 P2 cars, do some searching.

Re: Rear shocks and Impact driver questions.

Not sure there will be a ton of use for the impact on this job, but it is nice to have around over the long term. I have a cheap Harbor Freight 1/2" impact, the corded one. Like xHeart says it is heavy and sometimes bulky (so that you must have extensions and an impact swivel), but otherwise it is a...

Re: Big Transmission Leak, Please Help Me

Bottom line you must first to ID where the leak is. From what you mentioned, one place I'd check is the seal where the driver's side axle goes into the transaxle case.

Re: Ford power steering fluid?

... It is not supposed to be mixed with ATF as that increases the foaming tendency but it is not harmful to seals or pump, etc. ... I have long wondered why they are not supposed to be mixed, super useful to know thank you. It is no problem at all mixing CHF-11S and CHF-202 so OP you could also jus...

Re: Ford power steering fluid?

I definitely wouldn't just add ATF. Your 2004 V70 came from the factory with Pentosin CHF-11S for power steering fluid. This is a green colored fluid, turns green brown when it gets old. That said, DexIII ATF will also work just fine in your 04 V70 and it is possible someone has switched it to Dex I...
