Re: Any chance of saving carpet?

I really like Nok-out as a deodorizer and cleaner. I used it when I was given a car that had been owned by a smoker (mother-in-law). I would get a headache after being in the car for a few minutes. I had had the car detailed at an auto repair shop but that did not make enough of a difference. After ...

Re: Help with transmission fill bolt

Just in case it was not made clear in the comments above. The bolt, which was changed to a specialized 5 sided bolt to discourage removal, is not for a transmission oil fill hole cover, but retains a ring within the transmission. When unbolted, the ring can rotate out of position and require transmi...

Re: 2001 Volvo S60 throttle problem

The MM ETM position sensor strips wear so that the engine computer is unable to determine the position of the throttle over parts of the sensor track. The computer then cuts power which matches your symptoms. New ETM is likely needed, or Xemodex can repair it. There are contact-less position sensor ...

Re: Speaker replacement - Front Left [Volvo XC70 2006 134k miles]

Crimps are fine, Rattanlle. I just soldered the wires as I had the adapter out of the car, and used the new wire that came with my replacement speaker.

Re: How reliable is the Volvo V70? (2004-2007)

Glove test GeorgeandKira mention the 'glove test'. If the glove inflates, then the PCV system needs to be cleaned. This is usually quite extensive and requires the intake manifold to be removed - perhaps a couple of hundred for the parts and the same for labor. However, the real risk is that the in...

Re: Speaker replacement - Front Left [Volvo XC70 2006 134k miles]

The woofer is mounted in a plastic adapter that fits the uneven shape of the inner door sheet. The adapter is held to the sheet by hard metal rivets, as mentioned by oragex. The woofer itself is glued and fitted to the adapter with a twist. The adapter also has a socket mounted on it, so the speaker...

Re: Speaker replacement - Front Left [Volvo XC70 2006 134k miles]

Volvo does offer replacement speakers. Try Tasca, or volvo parts online in a Google search. You need to specify the car model and year, and also will need to determine which level of audio option was provided in your car as there are multiple speakers to choose from and you want to match the right s...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

Oil leak You have probably already done this, but change the oil. You mention you smelt burning and saw a very low level. 1. If the oil did 'cook', it can have lost some of its lubrication and you want that replaced before excessive engine wear occurs. 2. If you added 5w-20, then that is not the ri...

Re: ATF flush and pre-additives?

Sorry, I buried my warning. Do not use Dexron III in your Volvo transmission. It is likely to destroy it.

ATs, like engines, require specific characteristics from their fluids.

Re: ATF flush and pre-additives?

The term flush is not a good one. The basic options are to: - Drain about half the ATF via the ATF drain plug, and then fill back with an equal amount of new fluid into the ATF dipstick hole. (Half as fluid remains in the torque converter and other parts of the transmission.) - Run the engine to pum...
