Re: Recharging A/C... fan not coming on

Yeah, I was pretty sure that's why it was cycling. Once I vacuum it I'm pretty sure it should take the refrigerant.

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

Ahhh... gotta love my R. Always keeping me on my toes. Constant stress and anger is the goal of this car! Now I need to polish this fender after I just washed and applied sealant last night. Good thing this corner light wasn't a jewel. I'd be straight up furious if it was. What happened? And what's...

Re: Recharging A/C... fan not coming on

OK, that would make sense then. I'm going to go pick up a vacuum pump today and vacuum it. I was confused since I was pretty positive it needed to be vacuumed, but I wasn't sure how since this is a one-port system. That should get my cousin's A/C up and running in both of his P80s too! As for the fa...

Just joined! Nice to have an official MVS facebook group. I'm on FB as much as I'm here, that's where I find my good Volvo deals!

Re: Recharging A/C... fan not coming on

So you changed the needle valve? Did you evacuate the the system?.. I don't really take anything for granted as people's skills are all over the page. The system has to be in a vacuum. .. usually 28/29 inches of vacuum is the most you'll get.In the old days... the 80's .. I'd put a vacuum pump on i...

Recharging A/C... fan not coming on

I just replaced the valve core for the low pressure port, and now I'm trying to charge the A/C on my 2000 R. It doesn't seem like it was taking anything though. The can wasn't getting any lighter and nothing else was changing as I tried to charge it. The compressor cycles on and off every few second...

I’ve read here the design is exactly the same. I do think the Mtbf is about 150k , notwithstanding the biased failure data here
I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same. Why improve something when you'll be able to sell more crappy ones?

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

That's an awesome looking R. I didn't know there was a date code on the ETM. My 99' has a yellow label one, I have to check the date on that. Thanks! Yeah, the yellow label ETMs are the newer ones that I believe are supposed to be improved. If you look at the second line down on the left just above...

Re: Narrowing down a boost leak- 2000 V70R

I've thought about just pulling the intake manifold and inspecting it carefully. I'll see if I can get the intake gasket locally, I might try to pull it this afternoon. I have a low boost issue too so I've been doing a ton of research on how everything works. I'm gonna write some of it out in the ho...
