Re: PCV R&R - Losing the battle to the dreaded hidden Intake bolt Topic is solved

2006 V70 ball joints

In the Fall I'm going to redo my front end. I've seen several videos of different ways to attack the ball joints. Removing the whole knuckle (in which I'd do CA bushings) or doing them in place. Also are the CA bushings worth the trouble of pressing (I have access to a press) or should I replace arm...

Re: PCV R&R - Losing the battle to the dreaded hidden Intake bolt Topic is solved

Good to hear everything worked out and was waiting to see if you posted. I suspect your ext./welded socket didn't do the job. I've decided to remove the t stat housing also and am considering replacing the whole housing because everything in one piece ( housing, sensor, tstat). I'm at 100k. Is the l...

Re: How many drain and fills ?

That's probably true. The last time I used a quick lube type of place they.stripped out my oil drain plug. I asked them to show it to me and there it was on the lift an air rachet. I wasn't having it, they sprang for new oil pan (parts & labor) at Hyundai.

Re: How many drain and fills ?

I have the LV, washers, and now I know Autozone takes ATF. I could have sworn they refused to take it once before, but that was quite a few years ago and could have been Advance Auto. Either way there are quite a few of them both around me. Once again thanks for great info from everybody.

Re: S60 Serpentine Belt/Timing Belt

They should have noticed the bad accessory belt and replaced. In my opinion they owe you whatever it takes to make your car run again. That' B.S.
Good Luck

Re: How many drain and fills ?

At $17.57 for Valvoline Maxlife full synthetic 4 quart jug at Walmart (my local store parts wants $28.99). I'll do 3 drain & fills over the 500 miles, adding some TransTune on the last one and be done with it for under $70.00. Thanks for input. Glenn

Re: Buying a used volvo (V70)

I recently bought 2006 V70 NA off craigslist from original owner. 100k, garage kept for $3K. I had been looking for approx. 1 yr. Sweet car, but I still knew over the next year or so I'll probably be putting at least $1500 into it just to get it where I want to be. That's me doing all the work, but ...

How many drain and fills ?

2006 V70 NA new to me 100,500 miles. Vehicle shifts fine.Trying to do the math. How many drain and fills do I have to do to get to relatively fresh fluid. First took 3.5 qts.(very dark). What is the recommended mileage in between drain and fills? Thanks
