Re: Importance of Reseting Fuel Trim (LTFT).

In regards to the original post, you stated that the LTFT will change throughout the RPM range. I don no believe this is correct. First of all, LTFTs are be based on airflow/load, not RPM. You can be at multiple load values all within the same RPM range. Second, I believe LTFT is a constant number....

Re:

Fantastic write- up could have used that a few months ago. :( An extra check, make sure the rubber on the bayonett connector is not saturated with oil and has lost it's hold on the turbo hose, thereby letting un-metered air in. http://img162.imageshack.us/img162/4335/picture019yi0.th.jpg Does anybo...

Re: '95 850 Cruise Control points of failure?

It outlines a full series of tests that you can run from port B-2. ...Lee This document is great, but I have a 98 S70 GLT....

Re: Volvo 850 Dashboard Mount Repair

From my Haynes manual it looks like taking just the top of the dash off would not be that difficult nor time consuming. My question is if that will allow me the access needed to inspect and repair the dashboard mounts. BTW, I have had very good success repairing other broken plastic components with...

Re: Volvo 850 Dashboard Mount Repair

I agree w/ vjaneczko that it is difficult to imagine how an effective repair could be made in the manner you are proposing. My repair was done on a 98 S70 (197K) and all the pics of the 850 instrument panels looked identical to mine. The car was driving really well and felt tight, but the rattles an...

Re: S70 Power Door Lock Problems

I looked under the driver side dash, but can't seem to locate the Central Locking Contol Module. Could describe the exact location and perhaps include a photo so I know exactly what it looks like?
