Re: New Member New to Volvo

I guess I’ll find out if the leaks stop tomorrow and change the oil. The color of the oil is still newish. I know the oil cap says castrol on it. Is Castrol the best choice for a car with 175k? I think the other seals are good but I’ll find out once the lock rings are removed. There’s no splash gua...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

Fuel leaks are sometimes the orings at sending unit or fuel pump. Just replaced oring on sending unit for my wife XC90 T6 9 Months ago. You can replace the access covers, I believe FCPEURO.COM has them but you must pull the actual fuel pump and sending unit to check orings if there making air tight ...

Re: 2004 XC70 Rear Springs and Struts/shocks

It's probably too late, but I was in the same situation/dilemma & ultimately opted for the "reinforced" or heavy duty version of the Lesjofors springs. There's literally almost zero documentation on them, unless you look at some of the European sites that require translation. They are most definite...

Re: 2004 XC70 Rear Springs and Struts/shocks

Broken springs is common on XC70. Very rare on any other P2 model, S60 V70 XC90 or S80 My wild guess is some Volvo engineer just took the spring data from the S60 and added some length without properly calculating an additional area section, resulting in a weak spring for the XC70. Just a guess of ...

Re: XC70 Cam Seal / Valve Replacement

Just ran out to my car to do the glove test and it sucked it right in, so no issues there with the PVC. Do the front cam seals leak due to things other than the PVC? Since your front cam seals are already leaking the glove test might not be 100% accurate, some pressure would escape at the cam seals...

2004 XC70 Rear Springs and Struts/shocks

Our 2004 XC70 has another broken coil spring but this time it's in the rear, R/R. I've replaced 3 coil springs up front over the last 3 years. I must admit that I'm quite disappointed in either the quality or engineering decision with the XC70 version of the V70 chassis. The XC70 slhas about 4 inche...

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today....now sticky!!

I replaced the heater hoses finally, I had to cut one if them 2 years ago because it was leaking the clamp. This time there was 2 pin holes and I dont feel like removing them again so I ordered both of them (Blue Box) from FCP. The sad part is after the installation was completed I went for a test d...

Re: 2004 XC70 Broken front macpherson strut spring after being towed home.

Also read good reviews about Lesjofors. In fact, I think remember they make the springs for Volvo for the P2 platform. Anyhow, the longer OEM springs on XC70 are known to fail now and then. Much less on the S60 or XC90 I'm glad to hear that you read good reviews on the Lesjofors. Our XC90 has been ...

Re: 2004 XC70 Broken front macpherson strut spring after being towed home.

My R/R coil spring just broke, so I've replaced each front spring twice and now the R/R is getting replaced. I just purchased 2 Lesjofors from FCPEURO.COM for about $70 a piece. After researching the Lesjofors company(150 years of experience) and reading customer reviews I decided to make the purcha...
