Re: DIY: 2005 Volvo XC90 2.5T: ATF, Angle Gear, AOC/RDiff Fluid

With the Haldex fluid/Filter change, Volvo says you top it off and wait until it is only single drips coming out, then plug it and go for a test drive. Come back and pull the plug and again fill until it is full, then down to single drips, and use a syringe and remove 40cc of the fluid, then tighten...

Re: 2005 XC90 V8 oil leak

You probably don't want to hear this, but I am wondering if it's the timing cover. The timing cover has the same type of seals as the valve covers, and over time they get hard and brittle too, and stop sealing so well. When I did mine, I did them all. (I had to take off the timing cover anyway, so ...

The colder intake air is denser and requires more fuel to stay at the proper mixture. hotter summer air is less dense, and requires less fuel for the same volume of air.

1990 740 Turbo Auto trans shifting issue

My trans has solid shifts, Fluid not burnt.
Symptoms:1-2 shift normal speed. 2-3, hangs in 2nd until I almost completely take my foot off the gas. 3-4 quick. 4-3 downshift with very little throttle.
Throttle cable to trans has been backed off almost as far as it can go.
Ideas?
