Link does not work. Maybe post on CL. If I weren't on the opposite side of the country I'd be at your doorstep!

Re: Smoking dipstick, could it be bad rings?

Sorry if it seems like we are piling on, we aren't!! I hope you can get it fixed without too much hassle. ... I cannot recall if I used heater hose or fuel line. I made the line slightly too long so there wouldn't be a kink, but not so long that it bunched up. Now after 20,000 miles who knows if th...

Re: When it's time to move on (and what did you buy?)

I was concerned about transmission issues and replacement parts costs on the XC90's. I've been doing some research and it seems the 2008 and up is a safer bet but is there an engine/transmission combo that is better? Generally I would steer clear of any turbo as that adds complexity and I wonder ab...

Re: Door Handle Does Nothing

Not 100% what is wrong with yours but this was what was wrong with mine. I cut into the plastic surround to give better access and then used rebar wire (only thing I had on hand, maybe zip ties would've been better thinking about it lol) to secure the pieces together. Yes my car is falling apart. I ...

Volvo Announces Free Towing for Life on All Its Cars of Every Age

...to a dealer. But still, pretty impressive concept. No matter what Volvo passenger vehicle you own, no matter how old it is or how clapped out it might be, it now qualifies for free roadside towing. Volvo is extending the free towing service it provides in-warranty customers via its roadside assis...

Re: When it's time to move on (and what did you buy?)

Those can be good deals but I seriously worry about long term issues such as transmission and steering components. I'm not sure I have the heart to do what I did with my car again. I hate to say it. I just don't enjoy working on my car anymore. I have seriously considered just taking Uber/Lyft to w...

Re: Service Air Conditioning

In the past I've gone to Napa and they have had an o ring kit. Or maybe it was eBay. Can't remember. But it was an AC oring kit for my car.

Re: When it's time to move on (and what did you buy?)

Perhaps you should just stay with the simpler and upgrade a couple of years? Did you see this today. Got me wanting to rid of our Odyssey or Lexus. Should sell fast!

Re: 1995 OBD 1 malfunctioning Topic is solved

FYI my '95 850 also has an OBD II port on it. It's located in front of the shifter below the change drawer that simply lifts off. You can buy a WiFi or Bluetooth OBD2 adapter to pull codes from your phone. I have an iPhone so bought the WiFi one and use the app "car scanner" which was free. The adap...
