Transmission oil sump leak on 2000 V70 automatic

Hello, my new-to-me 2000 V70 automatic with 200k miles appears to have a leak at the transmission oil sump. It is wet below and on the left side of the rounded rectangular cover protruding from the front of the transmission. On this transmission diagram , the oil is around part # 40. What could be c...

Re: Financial Distress Parts Program

I am donating my beloved 2000 V70 manual to the FDPP. Thanks to Matthew for making this possible and to abscate for coming to pick up the car. After owning the car for 17 years, and right in the middle of a major rehab, it was rear-ended and totaled. I planned to keep this car forever so did my best...

When is it not worth fixing?

When is a 20 year old Volvo no longer worth fixing? I need an intervention. A year ago, my 2000 V70 manual was rear ended and totaled. A friend of mine heard about this and told me that his mom had a 2000 V70 (automatic) with 200k miles which needed more work than she wanted to pay for. I recently b...

Re: Rear end collission! Repair advice needed.

Sad to say, but I am about to send my 2000 V70 stick shift to the scrap yard. I am moving some parts off it to another 2000 V70 I just acquired. I hope to be able to drive it to the scrapper as a final point of pride. Still not sure how I'll remove the essentially new $800 Ferrita exhaust and I woul...

Re: Rear end collission! Repair advice needed.

A high quality body shop gave me a repair quote of almost $7000. That was for an "insurance quality" job including a complete new quarter panel (both door tops), new frame rail, repainting used parts, etc. There are ways to lower the price, such as getting my own used parts in matching colors. One l...

Re: Rust protection improvement

I'm concerned about large scale rust protection, such as coating the entire underside of a car. A "quick and dirty" body shop once suggested that they could spray large sections of the car with POR 15. I've had mixed results with it, where it has been solid on my rusted heat shield for years but sim...

Re: Rear end collission! Repair advice needed.

I finally got my lovely Columba wheel checked at a wheel repair shop. They showed me how it's 20/1000" out of round at the impact site, only on the inside of the wheel. They said I wouldn't feel it while driving, so shouldn't bother to fix it. Now I can get a new tire put on and drive to the body sh...

Re: Rust protection improvement

I saw Tectyl mentioned in another forum as a corrosion protection product. Once I get my car in shape, I will consider this for corrosion resistance.

Re: Rear end collission! Repair advice needed.

Thanks, those pictures are really helpful. That last picture of the bumper mount shows my biggest problem. I want to cut that bracket off a donor car, but I don't think the body shop will weld it in place. They may insist that I replace the whole frame rail, even though mine looks fine. I'll see wha...
