Re: crank no start saga continues 2001 s60 2.4t

An actual wire of ECM harness, or loose pin on ECM module? Regardless, thanks for updating the status. I had trouble starting when I removed ECM and re-inserted it without the special tool. I could tell that those plastic sliders weren't fully in original position, so I ordered the removal tool. I h...

Re: S60 2.5T misfire

Will have to likely replace the PCV system in the near future. Conducted the plastic bag test on the oil fill and it did not suck it in but that will have to be for a another day. I'm glad to hear that plugs and coils solved the misfires. My advice on PCV replacement is don't put it off too long. T...

Re: S60 2.5T misfire

I had to deal with oil on top of the valve cover when I swapped in an engine from a junkyard donor. I actually noticed the same oil pooling when the engine was still in the boneyard, but chalked it off to PO topping off without a funnel. I washed the engine off really good before dropping into Astri...

Re: S60 2.5T misfire

Were there other codes in addition to cylinder misfires? I made the mistake of ignoring "IAT sensor circuit" code on my BMW when it started misfiring, thinking it was complaining about the sensor that tells me how hot it is outside. I got busy swapping coils around, then noticed a loose connector. T...

Re: V70 Pulling me off the road - like driving through a wind storm

I actually pulled good OEM control arms off of a donor car. ( I have read its better to go with used OEM over cheap new/reman) The noted problem developed more than 6 months after control arm replacement. and both sides seem to be in good shape. The control arms, especially the steel ones, are quit...

Re: Rusted Flange Screws 2007 V70 2.5t

Your engine bay looks immaculate! I have managed to get mine washed really well, but I haven't taken the time to shine out the aged black plastic covers. Good work! I am a big fan of raiding our local Pick-n-Pull junkyards for this kind of hardware because they don't charge for odd nuts and bolts. I...

Re: Cooling Fan running high all the time

The system on your S60 uses a physical thermometer probe and cycles compressor due to evaporator temp. If you put fan on high speed and the car is hot, 95F inside then it might be as high as 40 psi and may not cycle for a bit but one the air from vents gets into the 40's the compressor will start c...

Re: Cooling Fan running high all the time

There is a Russian saying about people like me, goes along the lines of "Live and learn, and you'll still be an idiot when you die." I was desperately trying to get Astrid ready for the upcoming trip, and went with what I've done in the past, instead of spending extra time on research. I had no idea...

Re: Cooling Fan running high all the time

Last week I was preparing Astrid (2008 S60) for our family vacation, and one of the things I wanted to do was to charge the A/C with refrigerant. I could hear the compressor cycling on and off, and the air wasn't blowing cold. I had hooked up the HF manifold and started shooting some R134 from Walma...

Re: Loud buzzing in oil filter area 2008 S60 2.5T "Astrid"

I am ashamed to report that I still have not raised the car to inspect this noise up close, too many things on my plate. That first evening when I noticed the noise, I told my wife "we may have a problem", and went outside to show her. Started the car, but only the tensioner pulley was making noise,...
