Re: Oil viscosity and the owners' manual

The white engines are all about tight tolerances and they hold those bearing clearances for a long long time unless the engine is not serviced or run with low oil level or no or low oil pressure. The crankshaft and block bearing recesses are measured and the selective bearings are the ways that is a...

Those hold the headliner in, at least in part.

Re: Discount Tire saga - one slow leak

I buy a lot of tires from DT. I have two heavy horse trailers, a 36 foot tandem axle trailer, a 40 foot tandem axle trailer, 3 duallies, and two SUVs. I always buy their warranty certificates, even buy them for new units with the OE tires since they will sell that to you. I was so tired of all the c...

Re: 4 wire MAF voltage questions

Yes, once jumper is in place then check the voltage. The click and the tne would be normal as the ETM did a self test and then went to a fixed part open position for engine cranking. Some of those large fuses in that row are the supply to the relays. It would be a good idea to look at those, or bett...

Re: Active Bending Lights Replacement [2014 XC90]

You change the bulb with the ignition off. The bulbs are different but not difficult. Halogen bulb access is no walk in the park on so many cars. The headlights on that XC90 are way over on the easy side of the scale due to the removal of the whole lamp being very easy. You remove the lamp and take ...

Re: rough idle especially in reverse with wheel turned to the right

Check motor mounts and the orque mount and look at the hose that comes from MAF sensor to turbo inlet. The motor moves a different way fore-aft for reverse and the engine moves left -right due to steering rack being on the subframe and subframe mounting the car body with rubber bushed mounts. You ma...

Re: 2005 Volvo V70R manual conversion

04 ECM will be 250 kBps bus speed and the 05 ECM will be 500 kBps bus speed. I don't think they can overcome that. Are they not going to "tune" the ECM in your car now? I can't recall that 04 and 05 have any differences in wiring but auto and manual have differences in transmission wiring harness. T...

Re: 2006 S60 Volvo Oil Cap With Castrol Stamp Topic is solved

Totally wrong response guys. it should be: "Thank you so much Castrol! Without you my oil would have escaped through that hole. I will forever be a customer and only use your products in my engine"

Re: Back Flushing

The orifice tube in the line next to strut housing needs to come out if it is not already open there. You can't flush it with orifice in place as that will restrict flow and catch all the debris that might be there.

Re: Volvo S80 T6 2004 - Tight tappets & valve adjustment.

A 2004 Volvo engine uses solid tappets. The tappets are sized in increments are are changed to adjust valve clearance once a full measurement of all tappet to camshaft base lobe clearances is made. Gaseous fuel engines if factory built that way have hardened seats and valve faces to withstand greate...
