Re: 2006 XC90 bent plug electrode leads to lost engine

Thanks schweg2. Knowing another owner has experienced this breakdown makes me feel a bit better! I had the timing chain done at a Volvo dealer last autumn. That was the last serious mechanical work done under the hood. More recently, oil and filter when snows were installed. The used head is interes...

Re: Volvo XC90 - Why you love yours!

I've placed a post in another section of the XC90 board explaining why I'm disgusted with my 2006 2.5T (bent sparkplug electrode...) so this is a balancing post to state what I like about the car. I bought mine from a colleague who drove it and serviced it like the proverbial grandfather. First to g...

2006 XC90 bent plug electrode leads to lost engine

Hi folks, first time poster, bear with me. I have a 2006 XC90 2.5T, currently has 226,000 km (135,000 miles or thereabouts). Last week on a frigid morning, the car developed a misfire. My mechanic pulled all 5 plugs and one negative electrode was bent over, contacting the positive. He replaced the p...
