Longer crank times

I’ve noticed that our 2004 XC90 AWD has been taking longer to crank lately, up to nearly 3 seconds after turning the key. By comparison, my ‘98 T5 starts immediately.

Is there something I should be checking? Thanks in advance.

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Already feeling 100lbs lighter... removed the secondary air pump yesterday while the wife was on a call. Delete was done at the ECU a few days ago. 8) 98_s70_secondary_air_pump.jpg Sigh... I really hope this is the magic fix. I don't know how I'll bring myself to junk this if this doesn't get my mo...

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?

That would fit 1035178 it looks like? Early hydraulic tensioner. Also cam timing marks are notches angled in about 45 degrees vsstraight up on th later one. Engine break is at 1266196 Added some photos. I think the belt PN depends on the tensioner style. If you have a hydraulic tensioner, go ahead ...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Oh, good point! I have the hydraulic tensioner. The belt number and tensioner both split after SN 1226127. Is that a safe enough bet?

I can see the plate where the SN is etched, but it'll need some brake cleaner to read it.

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Today I went to look for the engine serial number on the '98 T5 to figure out what timing belt to order and found this illegible sticker.

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Finally removed my headliner, which had started to resemble a droopy circus tent, and rather liked the bare-metal look enough to put back all the plastic trim for now. Is it me, or does it resemble the exterior of that Back to the Future car, the DeLorean? I botched removal of one the sun visor clip...

Discovered that the coolant level in the Silver Bullet ('00 V70 MT) was low, went to check the oil and found some troubling evidence.

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Tagged the 940 today... I love this thing! I can't stop staring at it! Gorgeous. My brother replaced the tailpipe hanger and got rid of that clanging sound from the rear end. I got to test out my horn when a pickup tried to pass me from the incoming lane as I was about to make a left turn into a dr...
