Re: Riddle me this -fuel filter - transmission '05 XC70

fuel filter might have been sucking air a while, causing shift problem due to running lean/lower fuel pressure. That I thought was a possibility, but wasn't aware of a sensor that might be activated. When my DIC first became activated, it indicated an average mpg of 12.5. This, I assume, resulted f...

Didn't touch anything electrical. Only other change is sharply colder weather.

Re: Fuel Filter replacement problem '05 XC70

Cannot say this was the solution with the "quick connects" but here it is. I took a pair of pliers and ground the jaws such that they only grasped the "quick connect" fittings. I did ultimately remove them, not sure it was entirely the pliers; but did wish I had thought of it earlier.

Riddle me this -fuel filter - transmission '05 XC70

For the last few months, my transmission has been shifting (and downshifting) somewhat erratically. I had been waiting for warmer weather to attempt a fluid change. Last week, my fuel filter corroded right through; requiring an immediate replacement. Since replacement of the fuel filter, my transmis...

Re: Fuel Filter replacement problem '05 XC70

This is not a job to tackle without your complete tool box. I tried bolt extractors and only managed to shear off enough metal that it was completely round. Ended up drilling it out, will probably re-tap it for a 10mm bolt. Whew.

Re: Fuel Filter replacement problem '05 XC70

Yes the mounting bolt is quite corroded. When the obvious socket failed to grip I mic'd it an got 12.46mm. Makes me desire one of those heating tools I am seeing everywhere on YouTube, I believe they are about $400.

Re: Fuel Filter replacement problem '05 XC70

Thanks. Unfortunately, I can't get the quick disconnects to release either. Was hoping removing the bracket and lowering the filter would aid the release.

Fuel Filter replacement problem '05 XC70

The fuel filter on my '05 XC70 is severely corroded, and leaking. For several days I have been struggling to remove the bolt that mounts it to the frame rail. I have already tried several days of PBlaster. The bolt seems to be something between 12 & 13MM. I have even tried SAE sizes. Mostly I succee...

Re: Where to get VIDA?

Are these prices including the cable to hook up?

Where to get VIDA?

I have decided that the time has come that I ought to have it for P2 cars. I seem to have seen prices as low as $19.95. My local Volvo service guy tells me that he gave up on it because of the cost and now sends people to the stealer. Recommendations, including cable?
