Think my Volvo has something terminal

The sound coming from the engine doesn't sound great. No CELs. I think it may be a valve issue can you all check the video and give me your input. Thanks in advance. Also 116k miles 06 Volvo S60 2.5T

Curious question about S60 passenger tail lights

So I've wondered this since getting my S60. I've noticed the passenger side tail light has like a reflector in inside tail light but driver side does not. Why Is that?

Re: 2006 S60 2.5T stuttering mystery Topic is solved

I got a year warranty on the coil I bought for the moment, but O'Rileys is opening up in my town soon so that will be great to know! Thank you to everyone for the guidance on helping me solve the issue!

Re: 2006 S60 2.5T stuttering mystery Topic is solved

Solved! It was coil pack 4! I forgot about it after testing all other cylinders and get distracted by the purge valve and temp sender. But along the way I found that the temp sender was failing too! Misfire be gone though. Attached is a dirty but happy Bette!

Re: 2006 S60 2.5T stuttering mystery Topic is solved

So I ended up disconnecting the Temp sender this morning as i did the unit clip snapped so the part is a bit oxidized and started the car. It was sluggish to start (cold morning) but it fired up and didn't skip a beat after that. Going to order the sensor from FCP and replace it soon. I will update ...
