Re: Please Help : 2008 Volvo XC90 Compressor Clutch

Thanks guys. 1. Once the 10 mm bolt is removed. You just came rock the clutch back and forth. It spins inside of the pulley. The clutch is pressed in gears. 2. Inserting a flat screw driver and banging it against the pulley obviously did not work. Yes I dinged the pulley but not bad enough for it to...

The Filler Plug rubber o ring is not critical. The crush washer and the Integrated Level Plug rubber o ring is a "MUST"

Re: 2008 Volvo XC90, 3.2 AWD, Transmission Flush

I have a VIDA DICE 2014D. It spits out anything for Volvo vehicles from 1999 to 2014. Give me the model of your XC90 and I'll be glad to generate and post the steps. You should know that to properly check the trans mission fluid, you must idle until the transmission fluid reaches 50 to 60° Celcius. ...

Re: Xc90 awd: A/T tires?

I have 2008 Volvo XC90, 3.2 AWD. The stock tires are 235 65 17. If I install 245 65 17, do I have to change the rims? Do I need spacers? For those who installed 245 65 17, what issues did you encounter. I also plan on Bridgestone Ecopia plus. The tires seem to be 9 lbs lighter than the Bridgestone A...

Thanks for the write up. I'm a bit uncomfortable raising the ABS Module, I was afraid to break the pipes. So the trans cable was easy to pop out? Did you just pushed it in when you re install?

Re: Coils and Sparkplugss

What was the issue with the fuel pressure sensor? I would expect a fuel pressure sensor issue to affect all injectors similarly. How long have the plugs been in? Mine had a 75k service interval, I changed them at about 80k. If it's near due, probably wouldn't hurt to change them. Any chance oil cou...

Re: 2008 Volvo XC90, AWD Inner/Outer Tie rod Removal/Replac

I'm not sure what the counterhold is for. I have a funny feeling that the limiter is holding the inner rod. There's no room for a pipe wrench as the inner rod is right above the subframe. I'm about to change the struts, spring seats, strut mounts, control arms, ball joints, outer and inner tie rods ...

Thank you so much for sharing your experience on flushing your transmission. Great write up! You used Mobil ATF 3309, how is the trans adapting to this new fluid? Did you reset the TCM Fluid Counter?
