Re: 2007 XC70 does not start in cold temperature (battery is good)

If it is...please..can you provide info on how to test and rule out a bad position sensor, bad wiring to and from the position sensors, bad ground of the position sensors, etc. Take Abscate's advice and use starter fluid. If the car starts for a few seconds and dies, you know the position sensors a...

Re: 1999 V70T5M56 right front wheel bearing Topic is solved

Hmm, do you enjoy swapping parts or would you like to try to diagnose? I am deaf in one ear and can't tell direction of car noises, extremely frustrating. I used to ask my wife to tell me which corner of car a particular noise was coming from. Well she would always know the answer ... the problem is...

Still have the old key? Cut out the new transponder chip out of key and use old one instead (most just tape them inside steering column).

Re: Speed Sensitive Rack?

I was given a non-volvo convertible about a year ago with leaky top hydraulics. I added some synthetic oil to system and then it started leaking much much worse. After several refills, I got desperate and finally added some blue devil stop leak ... it completely stopped leaking. I was shocked that t...

Re: Overheating - 1997 850 GLT

Radiator light = low on coolant (ie. leak)

You suggested a leak due to the radiator light coming on, but then you don't suggest that you fixed the leak. You mentioned thermostat replacement, but what about the leak? Does the radiator light always come on before overheating?

Re: 1998 S70 N/A noises in suspension

I couldn't hear your noise very well. I had several ball joints go bad on my old Volvo 240s over the years, they would clunk when going around corners. Left ball joint for right hand turn.

Can you mount your dash cam under car to view suspension while clunk happens?

Re: 2000 V70 fuel line leak Topic is solved

If you get rid of the hose clamps for stainless steel Oetikers, Andy then protect it with some heat shrink. It will last the rest of the car life. Pex fittings for home plumbing, which are Oetiker type, are tested at 100 psi, twice the operating pressure of your system. Add a inspection protocol to...

Re: 2000 V70 fuel line leak Topic is solved

I was able to repair my leak well enough to get my car home. Apparently, this year has 1/2" OD rubber hose with another stiffer flexible hose internally that has 1/4" ID from fuel filter to under engine and then it is metal. The dealer wasn't any help with this information, all they could tell me wa...

Re: 2000 V70 fuel line leak Topic is solved

Finally got to look at car. It is a rubber hose with 1/2 outer diameter. It seems to be same/similar to a P2 fuel line. It has a plastic cover that protects it ‘most’ of the way under the car. I am chicken to cut all the way through the hose until I figure out what the inner diameter is.
