Re: M56 manual transmission Swap: The Ultimate Parts List

If you are going to daily drive it and run it long term, cry once and get the DMF. They last forever

I just ran across this randomly, and it reminded me about the era of Big Glass. You know, where you could see out of cars?

It's a '78 Buick. Look at the side glass! Acres! Reminds me of the 700/900 series.

Re: Timing Belt--What to replace after 7 years and 35K

I ran my T5 belt for 15 years 143k miles

🤬

Belt fails on time, the rest on miles

I would replace belt only in the OP scenario

Re: PCV Write-up for 1999+ Volvo 5-cylinder 31325709

No flame trap on the 1999- models

I would replace all rubber parts on an unknown PCV especially if they are hard or oil soaked. if they are soft, dry , and pliable, you can reuse on a budget.

The catch can can be rinsed with solvent and re- used

Re: 2006 XC70 - Tail gate Rubber band replacement

Probably a black RTV cement like Permatex would be my recommendation.

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

Rolled it down the ferry for the weekend.
