Re: Volvo 850 '97 Project - One Collision [56K warning]

Can you recommend using zip ties as a camshaft lock changing timing belt? No risk of one or two teeth off?

Re: DIY: Oil Pan/Sump O-Ring Replacement 2000 XC

I replaced my oil sump without touching the engine mounts. At 70K miles they where probably less worn making space enough to remove the oil pan without anything more than bending the power steering pipes. However I wasn't smart enough to change the O-rings.

Re: Thoughts on the longevity of the S70?

As a swede I have to try to defend Volvo here and make clear that the problem with fragile plastic is foremost a (southern?) US problem. Although I've only got first hand experience with 850 and 960 I've never heard that the plastic is a major problem in a nordic climate (not very comforting as it's...

Re: Los Angeles - running 1993 850 going to the dismantler?

as lob pointed out; mining, paint dry ing and plastics being formed and transport from Asia negate all emissions benefits. I'm pretty particular about refuting this when I hear it: there are environmental costs to building, transporting, and scrapping a car, but the vast majority of a car's environ...

Re: Los Angeles - running 1993 850 going to the dismantler?

Environmentally I think I'd better stick to my car until it's scrap, then buying a electric car. Now where´s the environmental benefit of going electric? Millions of batteries that require rare earth material which requires billions of liters of water to get out of desert soil, leaving farmers with...

Re: Los Angeles - running 1993 850 going to the dismantler?

Why would the state of California bother with emissions created when producing a new car? The emissions and pollution will be somewhere else, probably in Asia, and those emissions won't be included in the calculations of CA transportation emissions anyway. Wear and tear in the name of the environme...

Re: Another AC post

You shouldn't turn of the AC permanently during the winter. The AC needs to run frequently not to start leaking. Ever notice the A/C clutch engages for a few seconds every time you start the car? That is done to keep the oil in the refrigerant from settling. The oil is what hermetically seals the r...

Besides the joking... You shouldn't turn of the AC permanently during the winter. The AC needs to run frequently not to start leaking.
