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?

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.

Re: 1995 VOLVO 850 TURBO NOT RUNNING.!!

If car starts after fuel relay is removed, sounds like engine is flooded. Have you tried trying to start car with gas pedal all of the way down to the floor to prove this? If it is flooded, it is usually leaking injectors. How quickly does fuel pressure fall after you stop cranking and you have it u...

Re: 2000 V70 fuel line leak Topic is solved

I was just forwarded a picture of the leak. It actually looks like a rubber hose but picture is kind of blurry, I didn't get to see it in person yet. fuel leak.JPG Doesn't look like it is rusted if it is actually metal, possibly an animal got hungry but lost interest as soon as it started tasting fu...

Re: 2000 V70 fuel line leak Topic is solved

Hmm, is the whole fuel tank going to want to try and empty if I cut the line; effectively acting like a siphon? There is 1/2 full tank in there! If so, option 1 is to try and slice a short new piece of rubber fuel line and use it as a compress. Basically, clamp it right over the leak. I have done th...

2000 V70 fuel line leak Topic is solved

My parents have my V70 right now and have reported a fuel leak under the center of the car just aft of the firewall. The car is parked on the road and it is 5 hours away from home. I am going down there next weekend to try to fix it. Anyone ever deal with a similar problem? Looking at the dealer web...
