Re: Broken power connector for 1996 Volvo 850 ABS Control Module

If you get them backwards it won't short anything out, the pump motor will just run backwards. It is a 50/50 crapshoot but I can't think of any damage that would be caused by being on the losing side of the bet.

Re: Cheap Timing Belt Discussion

As a practical matter I don't think there are that many manufacturers of timing belts. Continental, Dayco, and Gates come to mind. I've put a Gates belt on a Volvo and didn't loose a minute of sleep over it. I have never seen a belt itself just break. I'm sure it can happen but in my experience it i...

Re: Pulled the cylinder head B5254T

It isn't corrosion, it is carbon deposits and it is pretty normal. A Seafoam treatment every year or two helps burn the stuff off.

Re: Fuel system 1 status

Mine always go closed loop fairly quickly, even on a cold day a city block or 2 will do it.

Anytime you are open loop the fuel mileage will suffer.

What kind of sensor did you use?

Re: 97 855R suspension: to renew nivomat or not?

There are different Nivomats for different springs and I'm pretty sure they are different between wagons and sedans. That said, I scored a pair for the XC off of a S70 AWD model at the U Pull lot for about $7.00 each. Bolted them on and they worked fine. The PO had put a set of Bilstien TCs on the r...

Re: 1995 OBD 1 malfunctioning

The jumper wire (flywire) with the plug that you insert into the port(s) is a known weak spot. I have repaired them before by shortening the flywire and soldering it back onto the contact plate below the button and I have also replaced the wire completely on another one. I think I used a standard cr...

Re: 1994 850 GLE

Try driving it a few hundred feet. It goes through an initialization process and after everything checks out it extinguishes the light.

Re: Speaker wiring 2000 XC

The dash and front door speakers are wired in parallel and are driven directly off of the head unit. If you have an amp there is a second connector that jumps from the head unit to the amplifier and then the speakers for the rears plug into the amp.

Re: S70 T5 98 - Need photo of gauge cluster wire harness please

I'm fresh out of 70 series cars but I can tell you that they are keyed such that they will only fit into the correct socket.
