Re: Windshield wiper recommendation for 2000 S70?

It is imperative that you only use OEM Volvo wipers on these cars. Other wipers will just fail on you, and then you will have to go out and buy Volvo wipers, anyway. It is false economy to use non-OEM Volvo wipers. Do it right the first time. I'm only kidding. It's amazing how much difference there ...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Or...What did you screw up on your Volvo recently? So, this week I solved the Evaporative Emissions code I've been half-heartedly messing around with for a year. Replaced hose from purge valve to canister in front fender a long time back with cheap vinyl hose I had on hand. Bad decision. Hose held u...

Re: Easy Valve Ticking Question (for some)

I want to say the parameters for a good hot run are 15 minutes above 4000 rpm to get all the valves spun into a new place, and I think that was Volv-gospel from jimmy. Okay. Fifteen minutes at 4000 rpm. Just remember: Albany is not the other side of the world from Philly, and I will hunt you down i...

Shout out for FCP

I ordered an engine mount from FCP Euro in Groton, CT yesterday at about 11:00 am, and it turned up at my door about 27 hours later using the free shipping option for a $63 order. Granted I am probably less than 200 miles away, but that is pretty rapid.

Odd exhaust noise/vibration? Front engine mount.

My odd exhaust noise/vibration seems to have been the front engine mount down near the harmonic balancer. Waiting for part to arrive. Will update. Just posting this to turn up in future searches if someone has this problem.

Re: Easy Valve Ticking Question (for some)

Try running synth oil for a while and keep the revs beyond 4k frequently. this cured the ticking on both of my T5s Right now it has Mobil 1 High Mileage full synthetic (by USA standards) 10w-30. Has had it for several changes. I think I will change it again with some lighter oil, especially with wi...

Re: Evaporative Emissions 1998 V70 non-turbo

Just to wrap this up in case anyone is reading with a similar problem, there were two problems that gave me the Evap Emissions code: 1. In the '98 the canister is in the left front fender and there is a large diameter hose going from the canister to the purge valve (or pump) also located inside the ...

Re: Easy Valve Ticking Question (for some)

I am waey of snake oils as they can bite. The problem is they may fix one issue while causing another. Your car may have reached the stage of Needong the oil 'o' rings being replaced between the oil pan and the block if not already done in the past. These shrink with time reducing oil pressure to t...
