While I am in there...

So, car died and I thought it was the alternator that failed. It turns out that on a 3.2, the coupler bolt that secures the drive sprocket to the engine has come loose. Save me 500 for a new alternator. Loctited the bolt and put the original alternator back. It was a lot of work getting the intake o...

Odd Tire Wear

One of my tires is wearing funny. The tire was on the front left and it started to wear on the outer edge. So, I rotated the tires and now the tire is in the right rear. The tire continues to wear poorly and faster than the other three tire, especially on the outer edge. The suspension seems to be o...

Re: 05 XC90 V8, how to identify ps pump leaks

I have a 2008 3.2 and experience a whine when just starting the car also. Here some pics of oil leaks under the left side of car. Does the V8 and 3.2 engines use the same power steering box?

Oil Leak on Left Side of Engine

I was under the car doing an oil change and notice that there is an oil leak on the left side of the engine. I assume that is the transaxle. Anyone have any idea what that could be? Does not look like an big leak. Just some oil seepage and dirt is stuck to it over time. No drips on the ground.

Control Arm Bushing

Trying to determine if these bushings are bad. Would I notice any handling improvement replacing these. Try to make the XC90 more responsive. Is there other components that I should look at? Car has 122K miles.

08 XC90 Brake caliper torx bolts

I accidentally loosened the torx bolts holding the two halfs of the front caliper. Its a big torx T55? Anyone know the torque spec to re tighten.
