Re: Possibly headed to look at 2006 XC70 - couple of questions

Thank you very much for all the replies and information! Sorry was offline for most of the day yesterday. We've got some things that have come up so I'm a little worried this one will be gone by the time I can get out there to look at it, but nonetheless these cars are on my list of things I'm looki...

Possibly headed to look at 2006 XC70 - couple of questions

Well, I'm sad to say that my 01 V70, which I love, has developed gear cluster bearing noise, and everyone I've talked to says I'm looking at $2500 to 3K for a repair bill. It's very much driveable, and as long as I don't coast in gears 2, 3, or 4 I can't hear the noise, but I know it's gonna get wor...

Re: Came here to research used ETM options - now I'm not so sure

next week Im in another country, but I could ship it via USPS to try. Thank you very much!! PM Sent! When you say ETM are you referring to what some call the throttle body? Just want to make sure. Yep, sorry! Can you grab a mirror, if you don't already know, and see who makes the ETM on your Volvo....

Re: Came here to research used ETM options - now I'm not so sure

Wow thanks a lot! I'm in Bethlehem, and very wiling to take a reasonable drive to pick it up or pay for speedy shipping - please let me know. If it works I'd be happy to buy it from you, unless you are keeping it intentionally for a rainy day.

I really appreciate it!

Came here to research used ETM options - now I'm not so sure

Have been having some troubles the past couple of weeks, and have been trying to diagonose it on a shoestring both budget-wise and time-wise. I checked all the vacuum hoses, thoroughly cleaned the MAF (it *was* filthy), and passed a lot of messages to my dad who works with a Volvo mechanic several s...

Re: Mistral green??

Another example of mistral green (my car): DSC_0005.JPG It can have a bluish/ gray appearance for sure, depending on the lighting conditions. Hey, now I know what color my car is, I think! https://imgur.com/a/LyvV0 Carfax reports my car as "Greygold Metallic" when originally purchased - but I think...

Re: door glass re-set help?

my bad... that's not the speaker (thank god, since it is riveted in). Oh bad news for me - my front door passenger side speaker sounds blown, was hoping to easily replace it when I finally dig in to investigate why my window on the same door will no longer go down. How is the process to remove the ...

Re: Power Steering Leak fixed today - some questions please

Thanks very much for the input. I had already done the intentional low speed turns, and what had me worried was that turning left cleared up and got smooth almost immediately but turning right still had that shuddering feedback. *However*, I think you are right regarding the air. I took that car to ...

Power Steering Leak fixed today - some questions please

So, yesterday when I went to take my son to school (about 1 mile away) I noted halfway there that I had what sounded (and increasingly felt) like a power steering pump problem. Dropped him off, got home, saw a decent sized puddle in the driveway with a trail from where I backed out. Due to some othe...
