Re: Oil Pressure Warning and Light at Idle

Haha I have been exempted from the fate of squishing an o ring due to dropping the oil pan of my 2001 XC70 engine while it was up on an engine stand. While the engine is rotated upside down you can hardly get it wrong :D My lube of choice is either Molybdenum assembly grease or Vaseline, I don't par...

Re: '02 V70 ETM Topic is solved

'02 was the last of the Magnetti Marelli throttles if non turbo.

The turbo cars were exempted with the Bosch throttle by 2002.

Re: Spark Plugs: Copper vs Iridium vs Platinum FF#32

You're not the first to report this.

Just wondering what brand of coil packs you have. Are they all Bosch or is there an aftermarket one or two thrown in there?

Re: Engine running for xc70 but its not moving when put in drive gear or reverse gear

Is there a turbine-like whining noise when you rev over 1,500rpm?

Symptoms point to either a transmission pump failure or filter screen blockage.

Re: 2000 V70 n/a with a P0600 code

I know which chip it was; a 10 pin surface mount small IC from memory but I didn't end up doing it as customer had incorrectly diagnosed the problem. It was doable with a magnifier.

Re: 2000 V70 n/a with a P0600 code

Actually Henry can't clone Denso ECMs on P80s. The best he suggested when I came upon this issue is to swap (by means of desolder) the Eprom from one ECM to another allowing key codes to transfer.

The contacts will be due for a refresh with contact cleaner at this age. I hope this is your issue.

Re: Marco's 2003 V70 T5 journey

There's a replacement loom for those throttles sold by both XeModex and Volvo dealers. Perhaps try one?!

Re: AW55-50SN woes-easy to repair? Topic is solved

Looking at picking up an P2 V70 T5. I have seen a few that have they have transmissions issues, such as "slipping" or "won't engage into gear", typically 01-03 years. Has anyone purchase a P2 with these issues and fixed them without having to replace the transmission? I've read about the solenoid r...

Re: Official MVS Tool Drive for Robert - June 2019 thread

Junkyard shouldn't allow cars inside yard. They are just inviting the "getaway car" scenario. Also don't they have a camera system employed at the entrance? They should be liable for your loss Robert. Our local junkyards have security gates and checks as we leave and we're only allowed inside on foo...

Re: 2001 V70 T5 turning key get nothing

Not the key.

Check/replace starter relay. Get a 2nd person to tell you if the starter relay clicks with fuse cover off. If it clicks and doesn't start replace it, if no start again go further along the route to the starter solenoid. A test light to check for voltage/load is indispensable.
