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

Wrapped up the PCV in the S60 the other day, then helped install iPd lowering springs and an adjustable panhard bar in my cousin's 240. That car rides way better now! Way less body roll than the stock springs! I can't wait to feel it once he gets the sway bars! Took the R to its first meet last nigh...

The non-runners are the real deals - but you need the experience to figure out what is wrong and know what it needs to get going again from a non-running inspection - thats the art form.
For sure. Almost every car I've bought has been a non-runner. That's how I keep em cheap!

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

I agree, don't get too hung up on having the OEM tire. Of course, it can sometimes be the best option being that it's the tire that Volvo intended to be used on your car, however your S80 is 15 years old... there are many newer model tires that are better, I'm sure! I believe the OEM tires for the X...

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

Beautiful color on the R. Nice to see it out finally! I had a rough non Volvo day today. Realized my retired neighbor’s morning routine he not happened, went into the house and found her deceased in bed. Makes a stuck bolt seem trivial. Thanks, it’s nice to be driving it! Wow, so sorry to hear. Rou...

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

Weird picture... I actually drove the V70R to get parts for another one of my Volvos! It's usually the other way around!

Also got the S60 torn down to do the PCV tomorrow. I replaced the cams seals earlier, the front intake seal was blown out, causing the oil leak.

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

Someone else in previous life tried sealer. Good news is the orfice is the only thing that will plug up, so you should be good to go. That orfice does show why the sealer never makes it to the evaporator, where is it is needed, of course. Yup, and I'm sure that's why mine was so plugged up. Someone...

Don’t put sealer in it!
Nope, I made sure to only use regular R-134A. I filled with two cans of that and two small 3 oz cans of R134-A/PAG oil.

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

I had no idea that was a feature, will try it out tomorrow. I did see another thought on Volvo speed. That post suggested looking at the temp sensor wires and clean them in case its resistance is being artificially increased causing the ECU to think engine temps are lower than what they actually ar...
