Re: The second heater core...

The P2s have a lot less cooling group issues than the P80s, June. Im with your mechanic on this one. You know my 1998 V70 had a perpetual antifreeze leak at the heater core. Volvo warranty replaced it during my ownership 98-01. So I can attest that the P80 core was weak. So when does the P2 core di...

Re: The second heater core...

Both my P80s have SCP heater cores now, no issues thus far. My GLT actually had an SCP core in it before I replaced it, but it was an older version with black end tanks rather than white on the current ones. I replaced it at probably 190k miles. I installed the same one in my R, but that core was o...

Re: Heading out in the morning on a roadtrip in my S80 T6

Fact: you can not make something a fact by prefacing it with the word "fact." It needs at least one semi-colon If this is true, then it isnt factual, which is true/fact. Wait, I need a steak on my break. I had a rare Delmonico steak two nights ago;;;;; does that count??? :mrgreen: :lol: :lol: June

Re: XC90 Alternator Pulley Replacement - $3000?

My Volvo dealer charges $128.73 for a fuel filter change and around $100 for a full synthetic oil change so you were grossly overcharged!!! Also all Volvo dealers use only Genuine Volvo parts. So +1 for run away fast from your shop! They charge 100% more than the dealer! I attached a picture of a fu...

Re: 04 S80 Coolant Light Staying On

The light is likely the sensor in the coolant tank. Obviously you have a leak. Check the water pump, and all the hoses. Just this year I had one of the hoses to the oil cooler on the oil pan started leaking. Here I thought all the hoses were replaced and bam a coolant leak at the back of the oil pan...

Re: Lower control arm and CV boot, should I bother?

... I think one of the most expensive ($200ish) was Raxles, and it was not good. You think the raxles item was bad, or you think it was expensive? Huge difference. Marty and raxles.com have a universally stellar reputation, this would be the first time I've heard of a problem with them. What was th...
