Re: Electronic Throttle Module

Exactly the reason why I told Volvo that I would never buy another one. Replacing a wear/tear item with another one shows me that Volvo opted to bypass the right and safe thing to do: Coming up with a PERMANENT fix. When I had my 2001 V70 and learned about this issue, I wouldn't let my family drive ...

Re: 2001 V70 2.4T ATF simple Drain and Fill...

There's a llink here on how to perform a modified flush on your trans. I did this on my 05 S60 and couldn't believe just how dirty the fluid actually was. Now, I wasn't having any problems with my trans, and I have 101K on the car now. I simply did the flush in an attempt to make it last as long as...

This is the MAP sensor in the very front of your engine compartment...

Re: V70 questions

My old 2001 V70 2.4T had a similar hesitation problem and I replaced the MAP (not MAF) sensor which took care of the problem. The sensor is in the very front... http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/7559/dsc06929f.jpg It seemed that my fan stayed on during the summer time often when it was hot outside,...

Re: Looking for a little pre-purchase advice on V70 XC

Too many issues with these 2001 and 2002 models. But I would pay close attention to the transmission regardless, any rattle in the suspension, any hesitation during acceleration and at speed with cruise control on, make sure EVERY button works, that there is no pull in either direction up to highway...

Re: Looking at at 2001 V70 XC

Volvooh, The timing belt should have been replaced at around 105,000 miles. Make sure that it has been replaced, there should be a sticker in the engine compartment that indicates the date and mileage when the belt was replaced. If not then the car is well overdue and I would plan to change the bel...

Re: Looking at at 2001 V70 XC

As a former '01 V70 owner, my recommendation is do NOT buy this vehicle. It was a constant maintenance nightmare...I learned a lot about Volvos, but it will cost you quite a bit.

My 2¢

Re: V70t poor acceleration hesitation warm revs in steps 200

Also check the MAP (not MAF) sensor...it can cause trouble on turbo models.

Re: Key won't turn at all in ignition, Steering wheel Locked Topic is solved

This happened to my former V70 about 4 years ago; my wife had to drive the 150 mile round trip to take me to work because my key wouldn't turn...when I came back I sprayed some WD40 on my key and then into my ignition and it worked flawless for the time remaining I had the car.
