Re: Locked out of your car? This is the way in! Topic is solved

If you ever lock your keys inside the car or need a way in....here is a simple solution. I will try to explain how in case you ever encounter this problem. First of all my windows weren't moving at all. It was nearly impossible to stick a coat hanger between the door and the seal. I try to pry the ...

Re: Fix a Volvo flip/switchblade key - DIY, pics and advice Topic is solved

Re: 2008 S80 T6 code P0171, PCV issue?

OK, so I just wasn't patient enough: the long term fuel trim went up to 1.14 after a long drive today and later came down to 1.12 after a drive. All's well.

Re: 2000/06 S40 - Missing vacuum hose? P0017, P30(1-4)(pictures)
