Re: 2000 V70 XC AWD acceptable jack points

Been lifting my 2000 XC gently from the center front of subframe for 10+ years, no issues. May not be the best, but it works for me and doesn't appear to have any negative effects. After I jack it up, I usually put the jack stands under where the subframe mounts are. Me too. Front center to raise o...

Re: 2000 V70 XC AWD acceptable jack points

Front. I normally do one side at a time under the rear sub-frame mount. It is well supported. Not-sure I would lift at the middle of the front on the sub-frame. Neil. What is your concern about the middle of the front subframe? I have lifted from there and it seems to work ok. but seems is the key ...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

What kind of coolant type do you want switch to? Zerex G48 Ok great. Thanks. The reason I asked is I have always been able to find Zerex G05 in both 50/50 and concentrate at Napa. I searched napaonline.com and they also show both the 50/50 and concentrate G48 in stock and in store local to me. If y...

3-4 liters is an insane amount of residual capacity. None of my local stores stock the concentrate so I'll have to put the green stuff in that I already have on hand and do a change out later.

Re: please post mvs link to timing belt tensioner VIN thread; unknown if it is hydraulic or mechanical Topic is solved

If you take off the top timing cover (The one with the clips), I bet you have enough space to look down and see if there is a mechanical tensioner or not.
if yes, you have one.. if not.. hydraulic (in a different location).

Re: Hidden rust - rear seat mounts under arch liners

Wow.. thanks for the notes on this. I have been so impressed with Volvo's rust protection that I wouldn't even bothered looking there. Just to be clear, jack up rear, remove wheel, remove plastic liner and inspect. Correct? The reason people don't notice this until it's too late is it's hidden by pl...

Re: O2 sensor

Spray the O2 sensor with your favorite penetrating oil before hand. Every time I had to replace a O2 sensor (on 5 different brand of cars) the job is only made difficult because of access or awkward positioning. For me they have ranged from being shockingly loose to tough to remove. But in all cases...
