Re: 1998 V70 Hesitation after Tuneup - Coil?

All was good for a while until recently and it started hiccuping again.

I'm going to recheck the coil for resistance, clean the MAF and make sure my wire routing is good. I have done some work off and on taking off the airbox and such and didn't make sure to be careful about coil wire routing.

Re: 1998 V70 Hesitation after Tuneup - Coil?

Thanks for all the tips folks. Fixed the FPR vacuum elbow leak and moved the coil wire well away from other wires. So far so good, but just a quick test run is all I had time for. Do NOT want to declare this solved yet until we have some time to drive it around. If it comes back I'm planning on repl...

Re: 1998 V70 Hesitation after Tuneup - Coil?

Quick update. Checked gaps on the OEM plugs and they were all good. All the parts were for a T5 from the FCP tuneup kit. Volvo OEM R6 plugs. As I said it was running ok before with no hesitation, but it had been 50k since anything had been done with cap, rotors, etc. Checked coil and secondary was 7...

Re: 1998 V70 Hesitation after Tuneup - Coil?

Cn90 - The coil is original. Didn't replace that. Trying to understand if under load an old coil could cause issues with everything else being new. I numbered all my wires and double checked my work. However my two year old was "helping" so I will double check in morning. I assume it would run rough...

Re: 1998 V70 Hesitation after Tuneup - Coil?

I saw a similar statement on the IPD site, but saw contradictory info here indicating they can get weak. Tomorrow I plan to check coil resistance and also check my work from today. I just realized that I didn't check the sparkplug gaps. They should have been pre-gaped, but I didn't verify.

1998 V70 Hesitation after Tuneup - Coil?

I tuned up my 1998 V70 today and now I have a hesitation. There was nothing wrong with it previously, just felt like it was dragging a bit and the ignition parts were due to be replaced. After replacing wires, plugs, cap and rotor I now have an intermittent hesitation under load, especially noticeab...

V70/850 Blacked Taillights & Bilstein HD & Misc Parts

I'm unloading some misc parts listed below. They are off a 1998 V70 but many fit the 850. Tried to get good pics of all the stuff. All prices include shipping except for the HDs. - Blacked out Taillights including the bulb holders so these work with 850. These were professionally done and in great s...

Re: '98 V70 Outer Tie Rod Won't Come Off

I'm back with an update and wrap up to this project. Inner and outter tie rod ends are replaced. The inner tie rods came right off with a pipe wrench and I even managed to get the alignment pretty close. Will be getting an alignment ASAP as suggested by everyone in all the other threads. This was a ...

Re: '98 V70 Outer Tie Rod Won't Come Off

Thanks for sharing everyone! The discussion is great as it sounds like I'm not the only one running into issues. My inner tie-rods come tomorrow. I'm hoping they come off smoothly, but I can see a little rust under the ripped boot on the drivers side. Fingers crossed the pipe wrench will do its magi...
