Re: Transmission cooler installed

The general consensus is, an additional transmission oil cooler helps getting the oil temperature down which increases oil life and life of the transmission. I am planning on doing this on all of our cars with an automatic transmission. Cheap insurance.

Re: Dim not responding 2005 V70 2.4 NA

Thanks for the suggestion. Just purchased the car from a 2nd owner. He bought it as a CPO In 2008 from a Volvo dealer. I do have all the service records from 2008 and onwards. It needs a lot of servicing: transmission, try to cure a hard 3-2 down shift, when transmission gets above 65C degrees, with...

Re: Rear spring installation

Does anybody know where to get the striker plate? Google came up empty. FCP euro does not have it either. Lots of options: eBay Germany , fabricate one, hire Daveliz99 to fabricate one, beg Daveliz99 to donate one to the MVS loan a tool program. https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/qo8AAOSwIjJZT23v/s-l30...

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today....now sticky!!

Thanks much for the feedback. I will stay away from those. Not looking to do it twice.

Forum is great for DIY repairs.

Forgot to add added some UV dye in the angle gearbox. Still weeping after replacing the 2 outer seals :-(

Re: P2 cloth A-pillar cover retrofit with plastic

Is the diameter of plastic clips going into the a-pillar the same for both? Looks smaller on the picture?
