Looks just like mine, if you close your eyes!
For $20K, they could align the hood with the body.

Yeah, I'm just looking at that... that gap is pretty bad!

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Last weekend, with temperatures near 90 degrees, I drove home the '98 T5 with the kids because it's the only P80 I have with air conditioning, I swapped in a new AGM battery to replace the old one that kept dying — and now it doesn't start anymore. I just get a click/sproing sound when I try to cra...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Does anyone know what the residual capacity for coolant is on the P80 turbo engines? The total capacity is listed as 7 liters. I want to switch coolant types and I'm planning to do a system drain and fill with distilled water. Would the remaining water affect the the new 50/50 mix? Don't know the e...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

I'm missing both screws that attach the top of the fan shroud to the engine bay. I'm looking for bolt #4 in this diagram. Anyone know what size they are?Screenshot_20200803-200854_Chrome.jpg They're longer coarse thread T25 head screws. They just screw right into the plastic, so the size doesn't ma...

Re: FDPP #2

Travel is likely the same, it's probably just a little stiffer. I know for the XC90, for example, they just superseded the standard strut with the sport version. The fact that they did that shows that there likely isn't a huge difference in the PNs. Especially considering that it's used, it should m...

Re: FDPP #2

I don’t think it will be a problem. Worse comes to worst, you can swap your original spring over to this strut. The struts should all be the same, it’s the springs that are different. How different? Probably not much.

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

I like that setup! That should work well with the springs. Finished the head gasket job on the 940 today, and it still runs like crap. I need to diagnose this tomorrow, but now that I know the head is done, it's probably something along the lines of fuel. Looking at the boost gauge, it's probably a ...

Re: '98 V70 MCC Air Conditioning Relay Not Engaging

Huh, that’s odd. I’ll check the PN tomorrow.

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Swapped the head on my 940 today. I just put an iPd turbo cam in this refreshed head (came with my 240, straight from the machine shop!) and adjusted the valves. Since I've had low compression on cylinder 1 and it's been idling like crap since I bought it, I went ahead and tore into it. Plus it star...
