Re: LED code reader/ECC help

Really? I had read multiple places that the R was still 4.3 in 97. It made no sense considering other 97s were 4.4

Re: LED code reader/ECC help

Sorry to hear you're having trouble getting the codes to read. What is the resistance value of resistor you're using? Which pins are you plugging the code reader into? I got good results with the circuit shown below, plugging the switch between pins 5 (GND) and 6 (ECC) and the positive side of the ...

LED code reader/ECC help

Built a little code reader for sorting out my no heat issue, but the LED just stays on, no blinks when switched on. It’s a 12v, and there’s a resistor, when my switch is turned off it’s off when plugged into the correct spots on the OBD output. Ideas? Needs a different resistor? I don’t need the hea...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

Replaced oil filler cap gasket, replaced throttle adjustment screw (was lost to the ether by previous owner). Tomorrow is rebuild oil cooler return line and replace gasket for turbo oil return line, and clean all the oil underneath. Ugh. Also, soon fix this mess:

Re: 97 855R suspension: to renew nivomat or not?

I’ve seen several on fleabay and elsewhere, but wrong part number for an 850. Most look like they’ve at least 100k miles on them. I haven’t had any time to see the few (and far between) Volvos at my local pull a part. Maybe I’ll get lucky? Strongly leaning towards the ipd overloads and Sachs at leas...

Drip molding for a 850 wagon without rails? Window/hatch seals/weather stripping? Window scraper?

Re: 97 855R suspension: to renew nivomat or not?

I know I need to swap out springs if I don’t get nivos, pretty sure I would also need different upper shock mounts, but would anything have to change for the springs? I don’t really see a need for the leveling aspect of nivomats, so unless I can find a good used set I’ll add springs to the list of w...

97 855R suspension: to renew nivomat or not?

The new dad wagon needs some rear shocks, the nivomats are shot. I’m on the fence about swapping out springs and getting Bilstein or the like, or finding low mileage nivomats. I’m cheap, and the car needs a few other things before I spring for $200 plus each for new nivos. Not looking to lower, stoc...

Crankshaft pos sensor bracket 01 v70 2.4 base

Broke the bracket chasing some no start gremlins yesterday. The typical plastic one, but this one had no aluminum sleeve through the hole for the sensor cylinder, and I can't find one online that doesn't, anyone out there know the part number for the correct bracket? Did mine fall off and get eaten ...

Re: 2009 XC70 3.2 no start/rough idle/no acceleration

For anyone with a similar problem: swapped in a new battery, as I was sure it was nearly time for a new one anyway. Started like a champ, revs great, and is idling great. We'll see if it's the cure all I hope it is.

2009 XC70 3.2 no start/rough idle/no acceleration

New member, long time listener... Having some no start/rough running/no acceleration issues with a 09 xc70 3.2. After a quick trip, it wouldn't start (this was after my 20 minute commute home, so car was hot). Finally got it to start, but with a really rough idle, wouldn't go past 15mph, thankfully ...
