Re: Rear suspension height question...

I’m not sure what kind of car you have but if it’s a P2 then it takes a 4 wheel alignment and that should take care of your positive camber if all is assembled correctly. In a totally different scenario I got the left and right control arm backwards on my F150 and had a ton of positive camber. As fa...

Re: 2005 XC70, XC90 front sway bar installed, 30635778, longevity?

Yes my car is FWD. So in my case a T5 rear sway bar might be a good upgrade, and you don't think the ipd's will last long. I assume it's the bushings that wear out?

You also mentioned replacement of your subframe bushings. What was your experience there? Been reading about that most of the day.

2001 V70 Turbo and limp mode? (Loose hose) Topic is solved

Hello 2001 V70 2.4T 230k miles. Stock. I have a stage 0 nearly complete on the motor, except for oxygen sensors and this pesky engine system service required message. On with it. I was driving the other day and my car started surging a little. I could hear a noise coming from behind the dash that so...

Re: 2001 V70 2.4T inconsistent startup issues

I'm not the best mechanic in the world, but i also have a 2001 2.4T. If any of the intercooler pipes are loose, the engine will die right away. I had a lot of problems out of the pipe that goes over the engine. The couplers more specifically. Make sure the ends on those aren't deteriorated and leaki...

Re: Electrical problems after repair Topic is solved

I just wanted to update this thread with the final solution. The problem was indeed with the alternator. On the back of the alternator where the battery wire hooks up, there are two posts. On mine they are labeled B1+ and B2+. On the B1+ post, you hook your battery wire. The other post is unused. Ho...

Re: Electrical problems after repair Topic is solved

Thanks again for the reply. And a big thank you for your homework. I really appreciate your time. I've been working and otherwise busy the last couple days and haven't been on the forum or messed with the car much. I never use my volt meter so I couldn't find it of course. So I let the batteries cha...

Re: Electrical problems after repair Topic is solved

Ok. Thanks again. I did search the P80 forum and read some about it but didn't find any pictures. When I look at mine, I don't see the white plastic cap you were talking about.

Re: Electrical problems after repair Topic is solved

I installed the battery from my truck last night and was able to crank it and drive it the rest of the way home. It was raining, so I didn't get to rest voltage etc yet. I will try that tonight or tomorrow

Re: Electrical problems after repair Topic is solved

Thank you abscate. I will search the P80 forum after work tonight, and look for it on the car tomorrow. I'm assuming you mean the fuse panel under the hood on the drivers side right? Of course on this car the battery is in the back, so that would be a long wire. Is it the same to just touch the wire...

Re: Electrical problems after repair Topic is solved

any chance conductivity will improve enough that I don't have to do anything as long as I keep the battery on it? I don't remember if I mentioned it in my op, but I started the job, life happened and it took me about 3 months, maybe less, to do it. Battery disconnected the whole time.

Re: Electrical problems after repair Topic is solved

Thank you mrbrian. Schematic of the ignition circuit? Or of more than just that. I may can find one in my alldata, but if not do you have a link to one for a 01 V70 2.4T?

Re: Electrical problems after repair Topic is solved

Also as far as a spare battery, I could use the one from my truck if that's okay. They're different somehow, my truck is normal but I think the Volvo battery is like a side vent or something because its used inside the vehicle and not under the hood. That okay?

Re: Electrical problems after repair Topic is solved

Thank you oragex. I have a volt meter but haven't had a chance to verify the voltage. It should be about 14.4 at idle with accessories right? Measured at the battery? I have checked those connections at the battery and the alternator, as well as back at the fuse panel where I removed the harness con...

Hello, thank you for reading and helping. 2001 V70 2.4T 227k Miles, I've owned it 11 years and have done all my own repairs, in large part because of posts here on mvs. Great site.
