Re: 2012 C70 T5 vibration under acceleration and noise

Did you check the cv axles for play on either end? That would be my first pick, otherwise check the engine/trans mounts, in particular the one underneath the battery. Plus suspension components, such as control arms, strut bearings.

Re: Coronavirus Thread

The next two weeks will show whether the dramatic increase in confirmed cases across the US leads to a new spike in deaths, but it seems unrealistic to think it won't. Unless drastic measures, more effective ones than during the past months, are taken, the number of deaths per million could double, ...

Wow is right. I was especially impressed by the blinker light before and after picture. Great job!

Re: 2012 C70 Transmission Dip stick

It is supposedly there, hiding underneath some hose someplace. Have not found it myself, so disconnected a hose (I think going to the transmission cooler, not sure now) to refill my trans. I did find the info on this forum, it was in a Volvo technical publication (the drawing that identified the hos...

Re: 2005 V50 Gas Pedal Sensor trouble

Just a real stab in the dark here, but maybe it's not the gas pedal module but the wiring to/from it, close to the module. So replacement of the module temporarily 'fixed' the wiring issue, but not really. Codes would be helpful too.

Re: Battery Drain

It sounds like the battery is the culprit, try the temporary swap. My batteries when fully charged sit at around 12.9 volts. If there's no parasitic draw to speak of I'd think it has to be the battery.

Re: Coronavirus Thread

Being European and having moved to the US two years ago for work, I can tell you that I am afraid the US health 'care' system is beyond repair. For example, just before moving here, I had an emergency room event to diagnose and deal with a kidney stone. Was in there for a good couple of hours, all k...

Re: Weird metal grinding noise when driving away Topic is solved

I would also check the parking brake shoes. On our S80, last year I found the brake material had separated from the metal backing, in pieces, so I had to fit new parts. From the work you did on the front brakes, it seems very unlikely that that is where the problem lies. Succes ermee.

Re: Coronavirus Thread

This is Venice CA. I shop for groceries once every 2 weeks for wife + I. Whole foods lets only x number of people in at a time so you stand outside in a long distanced line to get in. Masks on everyone pretty much. No bags allowed in. Everyone keeps their distance inside. Once I get in my car with t...
