Re: Rear swaybar 850 turbo.

The wife's '97 GLT didn't have a rear bar on it. The rear end always felt a bit "wollowy".

It has a set of 850R bars on it now.

Re: Overheating - 1997 850 GLT

Is it leaking coolant onto the ground? Is it blowing white smoke? Is the radiator fan coming on? Sounds like you have an external leak (hose, etc) that was never addressed, and now you've overheated it a few times. If it wasn't a headgasket initially, it probably is now. FIRST, find where that coola...

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

Used the 850 OBD-II app to verify that my auto trans mode switch is actually working, even though there are no lights on the switch, and the shift arrow is not working (even though I checked the bulb and it was good). The app "Live" function showed the mode change from all 3 settings on the switch, ...

Re: Ard green stage 2 ecu question

That ECU is from a '97 GLT, which is an M4.4 ECU. Your stock ECU in the '98 is also an M4.4., which means it should run fine. However, I have been messing with using flashed M4.4 ECUs in the wife's '97 GLT, and we did find out that the AC routines for the '97 GLT were different from the other M4.4's...

Re: Rubber coated roof rails?

I found a set in the JY for my '97 854 in good shape.

The ones on the wife's '97 855 have had the covering removed and looks like an attempt to paint them happened at one time. We're just going to shoot them with some PlastiDip, instead of paint.

Re: 1996 850 Low speed radiator fan not turning on [Bad ECT sensor] Topic is solved

I'm pretty sure the low speed fan is supposed to turn on with the AC (when required) and the high speed with the engine temp. If you get NO (low speed) cooling fan when the engine isn't "hot" and the AC has been turned on, your high pressure switch is most likely bad. (This assumes that you have a g...

Re: Volvo Camshaft Locking Tool Front (850 S70 V70) - CTA 2883

I forgot about replacing the seals (which I did). The matchmarking was done to get things back together properly. You can just see my yellow mark on the VVT solenoid in this pic. There were 2 corresponding marks on the back of the pulley. One for with the belt installed and one for where it winds up...

Re: Volvo Camshaft Locking Tool Front (850 S70 V70) - CTA 2883

I aligned the timing marks. Installed the crank holder in the block. Installed the rear cam lock tool. Marked the exhaust cam sprocket and made a match mark on the back of it and the block. When the belt was removed, the sprocket rotated. When I put the belt back on, I rotated the sprocket back to t...

Re: Something dangling under front bumper. What is it?

Wiring/connector for fog lamps, most likely.

Should have a spot/tab on the body for it to attach to. Poke your head under there and look around to see what's close.

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

My AC is working. Does that suggest a functioning high pressure switch? I was expecting a quick turn of the fan, should I be listening for the relay to click? Am I just checking the AC high pressure switch for corrosion or is there an ohm value I need to check too? Nope. The switch was bad on the w...
