Re: Fluid from exhaust header

Thanks, I'll check. The coolant pipe looks a little wet. I assumed it was dripping down from the exhaust. Thanks to abscate stripping my old car, I have a used pipe to install some day. The coolant level has been overfilled for a year and 4000 miles. If it's losing coolant, it's dropping really slow...

Re: Power steering supply line repair

Thanks for the link to the repair. The solution was to get a 6" piece of 10 mm ID high pressure hose and four Oetiker clamps, cut the line at the leak and sand down surface imperfections on the line, slide both sides of the line into the hose, then use two Oetiker clamps on each end of the hose...

Fluid from exhaust header

Poor Geronimo has fluid leaking from its exhaust header. It almost looks like cylinder 4 has a tiny gap between the header and block, exposing the block's exhaust hole. Yet, the car sounds quiet at idle. Cylinder 3 had a bad coil for months so maybe this is unburned gas (but it appears centered on c...

Power steering supply line repair

I've finally started work on Geronimo now that I own it. Its first problem is a bad power steering leak. I did a multi-point turn to pull into the garage and Geronimo painted a Jackson Pollock on the pavement. PXL_20221003_194830154.jpg The leak was from a tiny hole in the power steering high pressu...

Re: Lowest price 850 I've ever seen (Hot Wheels)

My little collection just got bigger. I actually owned a 1980's Toyota Van, so I'm shocked to see it as a Hot Wheels car. Let's hope they make it in different color variations over the next few years so I can get more. I'm still hunting for those green and black 850s. Coming in 2023 is a new Volvo P...

Re: Correct transmission fluid for 2000 AW55-50 5-speed auto?

Thanks for the input. I wanted to be certain before I flushed two 2000 transmissions each with 12+ Liters of Aisin brand T-IV fluid, part # ATF-0T4. At $7 per Liter, it's a good price but still expensive at that quantity.

Re: Power steering rack brand opinions and experiences, Feb 2022

Are the ps racks identical on all FWD p80 models or were there different suppliers? Here's the SMI rack hexagon at the base of the steering shaft. When looking from the front of the car to the rear, right above the hex is a tiny raised logo "SMI". This also may be a good illustration of w...

Proper use of thick ATF for leaking power steering rack?

What's the proper ratio of thick ATF to regular ATF to be used in a power steering system with a slight leak? I just bought some Valvoline MaxLife ATF Stop Leak as recommended by many users here. The bottle's directions for transmission use are: "Add one bottle (1 quart) for each 10 quarts of t...

Correct power steering fluid ATF for 2000 S70 V70 C70?

What type of transmission fluid must be used in the power steering system in a 2000 S70 / V70 / C70? Is it Dexron III, JWS 3309, or some other type of ATF? Is the fluid type different between TRW and SMI racks? The owner's manual says that steering uses "ATF". Up through 1999, Volvo used t...
