Re: Car died, stranded 1000km from home, please help... Topic is solved

Maybe ignition or fouled plugs?
I once experienced this on my 2000 (electronic ignition, no rotor like the '97) and the misfiring also led to a code related to the lamda sensor.

Are all plugs, cords, rotor and cap OK? Did the no start situation happen during rain?

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

Not today, but over the past few weeks: - Oil change - DIY toe-in alignment which turned out pretty well - Put my propshaft up for sale, since I deleted the angle gear after finding out it was broken. The propshaft had just been rebuilt, so that sucked. Ad here (based in Netherlands...): https://lin...

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

Finally got VIDA to work! So glad that I can now just lookup part numbers and put them in google when I need to buy parts! No more comparing different parts online and wondering which one fits my car! :D :D Is that a difficult task? Well, no, it is not difficult but does require many specific steps...

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

I'm beginning to wonder if that's what killed the AW55 I had in my V70R before I bought it. Maybe all the fluid drained out from the smaller diameter axle. I can't remember exactly how it was set up. There is a hollow shaft with splines on the outside coming from the transmission. The sleeve goes o...

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

Not today, but last week I finally found the courage to get rid of the angle gear as per Ed Sykes' Ghetto Procedure involving hose clamps. Thank you Ed for sharing your pics earlier, this inspired me to do the same! I managed to reuse the sleeve that had been welded up to the angle gear before by gr...

Re: Transfer case is shot Topic is solved

Wow! Congrats, Fiodor! I have been looking for a good used one for two years now. I accidentally bought the wrong one, my car is a 1999 but has 2000 specs, so a 1999 replacement didn't fit.

Where did you find yours? Thanks in advance and good luck on the install!

Re: V70 auto box.

Is it like a clunking noise? The upper and lower torque mount are common failure on P80's, I don't know if they are prone to failure on a 2008 P2 as well. Check those upper and lower mounts: 1) visually: are the bushings worn/torn? 2) with a helper behind the wheel: open hood, look for excessive til...

Re: 1999 V70XC sounds like VW beetle and vibrates heavily at low revs Topic is solved

Now replace those other 2 old coils so we don’t have another addition to this post in six months 😀 If you buy another Volvo those two old ones become valuable spares! If coils (or cash) would grow on trees I definately would! Decided to determine what the Meantime Between Failure is by keeping thos...

Put in a new coil on #3 and 5 new plugs.
It now runs fine!

Next up: the leaky exhaust...
