Re: What glue to put the sunroof back together ?

I had to re-attach the clamps for my power windows to my driver's window on my Toyota Sienna a year ago. I too wanted to figure out what to use to attach to glass. All the research I did pointed to 3M™ Windo-Weld™ Super Fast Urethane Part Number 08609. huh.. just realized there's no "w" at the end o...

fake hood scoop, fake fender vents, etc.. yes awful.

But..... it's gone almost 300K. I wonder how many V/S 40/50s made it that far. I figure not that many. I'm guessing at that.

I never thought people cared much about the 40/50 line.

Re: how to test or wiring diagram for 1999 s70 MAF [1275636]

Basically, it detects how fast a warmed wire is cooled by the flow of air over it. That is relayed to the ECU which makes an injection pulse to match the air flow. The pulse is fine tuned by the oxygen content measured by the first oxygen sensor in the exhaust in so called “ closed loop “ operation...

Re: how to test or wiring diagram for 1999 s70 MAF [1275636]

The Denso MAFS rarely go bad. I can send you my spare if you want to try swapping. You do have an idle air circuit on an NA ETM P80 model, stalling at idle you can try cleaning that too. Be careful with those guys , they are not available anymore I actually took that off and was planning on taking ...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Changed my oil, swapped my tires (snow vs rest of year), cleaned my cabin filter and tried to debug my random stalling issue.

When I went to log my oil change, I discovered that the last time I did a change, it was 8/2019. Couldn't believe that. 5000miles but 1.5 years.

how to test or wiring diagram for 1999 s70 MAF [1275636]

Folks, I have been searching for a way to test the performance of my MAF and all the posts I found were for 98 and older cars. Does anyone now how to test a MAF on the 1999/00 cars?

Re: Stalling out when going over bumpy road or shaking intake boot.

Well, I finally got a chance to start debugging the issue. 1) started car without MAF connected. Idled fine.. I could not replicated the issue. No amount of shaking the intake boot would cause it to stall. 2) turned engine off, reconnected MAF, started car and shook intake boot. Idled fine.. I could...

Re: Stalling out when going over bumpy road or shaking intake boot.

1. Take the intake hose off. Stretch it and look for cracks in the bellows. A crack maybe opening creating in rush of unmetered air. 2. Clean the MAF connectors and sensor. I definitely plan on doing a detailed inspection of the boot. does anyone have any idea if bad connection of the MAF plug whil...

Re: Stalling out when going over bumpy road or shaking intake boot.

Have a good look at the battery cable where it feeds into the fuse box, and also the positive terminals. If you need to replace you can spend $60 fir the one year model or $90 for the Volvo Probably a main bus feed fault if everything goes dark with no codes I rebuilt all my cables two years ago wi...
