Re: How many drain and fills ?

There's a company with a tank farm for salvaged oil next to the rail yards. I wonder if it's shipped out and ends up as bunker fuel in ships...? That's some nasty polluting stuff.

Re: Salvage Title 2006 Volvo V70R

Maybe it's made of ground up titanium and angel tears and is very costly.

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

Years ago our '94 850 overheated a couple of times. It was the big relay at the top of the radiator shroud, which controls the electric fan. When sitting still, it wouldn't come on. Replaced it quickly and no problems since.

Re: How many drain and fills ?

My local garbage collection company will take up to 2 gal a week of waste oil in the translucent white milk jugs with the lids on. Pretty convenient, although I’m a bit suspicious of where it actually goes.

You don’t want titanium pain.. that’s the worst kind of pain.

OK, I'll look at that, thanks. It's been sitting for a while.

Re: Salvage Title 2006 Volvo V70R

I agree, but if the shove into the upper crossmember pulled in on the fender supports, then you're in bodyshop-level straightening, not just parts replacing.

I liked the $750 idea! Let's go with that.
