Re: 98 S70-Advice for Gasket & Filler Pipe replacement

And I hope it is not too woefully late to bring this up but, a very common source of leaks at the fuel pump is an aging fuel pump gasket. Are you going to check/replace hoses on top of the tank, is that your thinking here? Should have asked this earlier, oops! I'll keep the gasket in mind. When I i...

J, I'm not really experienced, but I would start with the thermostat and the engine temp sensor. In older cars the thermostat is cheap and simple to fix, and when they go, they can cause the car to overheat and the needle in the instrument panel won't raise. I had a 240 with a sticky thermostat and ...

1998 S70 Rear Suspension noob question

Hi everyone

I have a 1998 S70, Base model, manual transmission, FWD, 148,000 miles. My car's rear is sitting mighty low. I've replaced the shocks and front struts. Not the rear springs.

Could this be the cause of my saggy rear end? Also, does anyone know how to tell the springs are done?
Thanks
