Re: 1999 V70R 320k miles (bad trans, no reverse) $800 OBO

Ussokc, I sold the turbo a couple of years ago. Wish I would have kept since the one in the car needs a rebuild.

1999 v70r wiring harness interchange

I would like to replace the engine / underhood harness in my 1999 v70r and need to know what various models will interchange. Most of the current harness has the covering falling off and is a bit brittle from age and miles. I am assuming that anything from a 1999-2000 turbo s70, v70 or even a later ...

Re: 1999 v70r running rich

I know that it is a bit late on this one but I like to post the resolution for these threads. The problem appears to have been the oxygen sensor - the used one that was swapped in had apparently not been sitting on the 'healing shelf' long enough to be a working unit. It has since been placed in a p...

Re: 1999 v70r running rich

Swapped out the coupler - could not see anything wrong with the original one but decided to change it and the clamps out anyway. Took it on a test drive that seemed promising initially but sometime between 20 - 30 miles in the car started running rich again. Planning to swap out the oxygen sensor th...

Re: 1999 v70r running rich

The last time this happened it was a leak in the elbow at the top of the intercooler (exit, I believe). The inner liner had split and it was leaking air through it. It was not obvious, just happened to notice that it was soft. I have checked all of them except for the coupler at the turbo. Noticed s...

1999 v70r running rich

Have a 1999 v70r with very high mileage that has been intermittently running rich for the last month or so. Previously, disconnecting the battery for a few seconds would take care of the problem for a time but it seems to be a hard failure now. Not seeing any codes or a check engine light so far. I ...

hood latch grommet source

has anyone been able to source the little grommet that goes on the bottom of the hood latch to stop rattles and hood opening problems? I have a '98 s70 with this problem and have not been able to find the grommet without replacing the latches (~$80 each). The grommet slides into the slot in the fron...

Re: 1999 V70R 320k miles (bad trans, no reverse) $800 OBO

it is still available, I have purchased a used transmission with 130K miles for it and am planning on fixing it. Let me know if you have any questions.

Re: 1999 V70R 320k miles (bad trans, no reverse) $800 OBO

it is still available but I (and some others) are getting tired of looking at it in the driveway. Let me know if you are interested, depending on what is wrong in the trans you might be able to drive it home as long as you do not need to back up but that would be a bit of a gamble. I have not moved ...

transmission interchange 1999 v70r

All, I would like some confirmation / information on transmission interchange. The target car is a 1999 v70r. As I understand it, any awd trans from a turbo car of model years 1999 - 2000 will fit with the exception of the 2000 R, is this correct? I have also seen a few posts on this site saying tha...
