Re: Volvo Camshaft Locking Tool Front (850 S70 V70) - CTA 2883

The sprockets aren't really different in size but the way they hook up to the camshaft is different. The CVVT sprocket more or less floats over a several degree band. You can turn the sprocket several degrees and the camshaft itself won't move. When doing the belt on a CVVT you have to go through th...

Re: Intermittent Battery/Generator Warning Light

I had a similar intermittent issue on my Platinum Edition and it took me forever to find the problem. In my case the wiring harness rubbed against the amplifier for the stereo which has really sharp cooling fins and rubbed a hole in the insulation and shorted it to chassis ground. The battery was fi...

Re: Nivomats

I used a set that didn't really match what should have been on the car and they worked fine. The car they went on was a V70XC and the junk yard donor car was a S70 AWD. If you replace them one at a time there might be some handling issues but if you replace them in pairs I doubt you could even tell ...

Re: AC compressor won't cycle Topic is solved

If you happened to have the control set to defrost the compressor will run regardless of the temperature. A quick test to see if the gap is stuck shut is to unplug the low pressure switch (pressostat) back by the firewall. That kills the power to the compressor and it should stop running unless it i...

Re: 2000 V70 high low side AC pressures after accumulator replacement

I did not read the step where a vacuum was pulled on the system. Air is a non condensable gas and it will cause very high compressor high side pressure. As I understand the high pressure switch system it has a lower high pressure limit to satisfy the ECU that the A/C is operating and has built suffi...

Re: replaced fuel pump. Now I have gas leak

Does it leak at the fitting or is it in the hose itself? I have had a fitting leak where just removing the not so "quick connect" and giving it a dab of oil allowed it to seal back up. If it is in the hose or the pipe it gets more complicated,

Re: Torque spces / timing bett

The clearances are so tight that about the only thing I can get a torque wrench on are the water pump bolts and the tensioner bolts. There just isn't room to get to the idler pulley and tensioner pulley, at least with my torque wrenches.

Re: Repair beyond my skill set no crank/no start

My '94 has it and so does the Plat. It is very short and has a female spade connector on it.

Here is a picture from the Platinum. I think the '94 has it very close to that position.

Re: Repair beyond my skill set no crank/no start

There is a "service starter connector" next to the left (drivers) side shock tower under the hood. It is a green wire with a red stripe and it just sticks out of the wiring harness. Run a wire from the + Battery terminal to the connector and it will bypass the starter switch and the immobilzer. It d...

Re: 1999 v70R stolen key solution?

Good to know that there is a chance of making it work. I couldn't get mine to work at all when I tried a similar swap. I even swapped the instrument cluster and the ETM for good measure. Interestingly enough altered the VIN readout after I changed the cluster, it thought it was the parts car. Swappi...
