Re: Oil viscosity and the owners' manual

I think it's worth keeping in mind that oil chart is quite old by now. Oil classification comes into play too. Oh yes. I just looked up the owner's manual for my 1999 s70 and the spec it calls for is for "SG, SG/CD, SH" . That's ancient at this point and obsolete. I was expecting my manual mentione...

Re: Painting 1993 Volvo 850 GLT

Are you doing it yourself? if so, are you doing the prep? The paint? both?

if you're doing it yourself, what is your background that allows you to do this at this skill level? do you do it professionally or just as a hobby? -A

Re: Oil viscosity and the owners' manual

I've also found that chart strange. In particular, I found it confusing that the xw-30s cover different high end temperatures ranges. They are supposed to be performing like a xW-30 at operating temperatures. I agree with Rattnalle when he says "An oil with a smaller span between cold and warm visco...

Re: Vacuum bleeding brakes - questions:

I got the Motive bleeder from FCP that is very similar to jreed's solution. I have been happy with mine. Make bleeding brakes on my s70 a breeze.

Re: Windshield wiper recommendation for 2000 S70?

I have been buying the individual rubber inserts and replacing those once or twice a year. The inserts are available delivered from China for about $2/each. You have to rethread the insert through all the clamps -- it takes a little time, patience and double checking but it works well. I have bough...

Re: Volvo Findings! (What have you found on Craigslist?)

Wow June.. that's a lot of repairs . And costly as well. Ugh. Sorry to hear that. I just looked up the octopus hose. Yeah, I bet that is fun to change. I just watched a video where the narrator said "it kinda looks like a Christmas tree that's been through a tornado..."

Re: Volvo Findings! (What have you found on Craigslist?)

I completely agree! To crush a Volvo is a Cardinal Sin! My daughter is on my sh-t list right now... I can't believe that it's the same car I bought. So many dings, bug damage, ruined leather, spilled drinks just everywhere inside. When I picked it up she informed me it had a roach that made appeara...
