Re: Rubber coated roof rails?

I wonder if they could be powder coated? Overkill I know, but it would like cool.

Re: Low speed radiator fan not turning on Topic is solved

Anyway problem is fixed. I did not have to replace the high pressure AC sensor switch luckily. That thing is expensive. Very cheap and highly reliable PnP part - never buy new. I harvested a couple from my parts cars, check part number if anyone ever needs one. I like new shiny parts and the lifeti...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky)

Replaced the coolant temp sensor today. Temp readings are quicker, low speed fan is finally working! Coolant no longer spilling over! I'm hoping my mileage may change too. Been running rich for a while. I was surprised at how tight the thermostat housing bolts were even though I just replaced them l...

Re: Low speed radiator fan not turning on Topic is solved

Today is the day people! I changed the coolant temp sensor and what an incredible difference. My old sensor would read about 206F when the coolant was expanded to the top of the reservoir and then begin seeping out at 208F. The new sensor reads 208F and the coolant is barely expanded above the the M...

Re: P80 Small boat (500#) trailer mpg report

I love that one video robert made of him towing another p80 wagon with his p80 wagon. I can't even imagine the steering nightmare that most have been.

Re: Low speed radiator fan not turning on Topic is solved

Also check your AC high pressure switch. It's what allows the ECU to signal the low speed fan to turn on. Still not sure why using the app didn't trigger the fans. It's independent of all of the sensors/switches. Did they even act like they triggered at all? It doesn't turn them on to run, it just ...

Re: Low speed radiator fan not turning on Topic is solved

It sounds like it just defaults to "I don't know the temperature so lets turn the fan on high to cool the motor just in case its hot" I wish that was happening. As long as the infinitely resistive sensor is plugged in, the ecu reports a temperature and the fan does not come on. If I unplug it, it r...
