Hey all-

I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread for good cyber-Monday deals (V70 related, of course) you've come across today- I always like a good deal. Post them below!

Re: '08 S60 2.5T stutter on start

Hey fellow Minnesotan- I just had a very similar problem with my '04 2.5T- it was fine after I bought it, but progressively got worse with regards to starting and seemingly worse with the onset of winter. What ended up solving my issue was changing the fuel to strictly 91 octane. 89 was not cutting ...

Re: How-to: Replacing the Thermostat Housing on a Newer P2 Without Touching the Power Steering

@oragex- I imagine the temp fluctuates quite a bit more when it's 30 degrees outside. In stop and go, my temp would be in the 90's, but the moment i went on the highway it would drop 10-15 degrees and stay there when the car is 'heated up'. Right now, I'm getting 85 minimum on the highway in 30 degr...

How-to: Replacing the Thermostat Housing on a Newer P2 Without Touching the Power Steering

Hey all- If you have a newer P2 Volvo that doesn't allow you to just pop the top off your housing and plunk in a new thermostat, you're in for a treat- if someone wants to specify exactly which Volvos require the full housing replacement, I'd be happy to edit that info itn. I didn't find very many t...

Re: Hard Stumbling Start- Where to start? Topic is solved

I've read the same thing about people using a variety of octanes in their T's. I'm thinking the fuel blend in Minnesota changes a bit for winter - I'm going to give 89 a try when we thaw next year and see how it goes..

2005V70 2.5T What is the small hose on thermostat housing?

Hi All- I guess I didn't look very closely at my thermostat housing on my 2004 V70 2.5T, but I purchased a new one/upper rad hose recently. When I popped the hood today to go to replace it, I noticed there's an additional small rubber tube coming off the brass nipple of the thermostat housing- does ...

Re: Hard Stumbling Start- Where to start? Topic is solved

Solved the starting issue- I switch to 91 octane (had been using 89 since buying the car about a month ago) and the problem cleared right up. I've had zero stumbling starting issues. I will be popping in a new thermostat to address the low temp issue though (that's another story).

Re: Hard Stumbling Start- Where to start? Topic is solved

All right update- The old battery was from 2012 and 600 CCA so I replaced it with an 800ish CCA... No change. However, I popped my obdII module on and went for a drive while monitoring- the coolant temp drops from about 80-90ish in stop and go to around 75-76 on the highway. It's about 30 degrees he...
