'06 V70 NA throttle response

I recently replaced timing belt, upper/ lower torque mounts and right side lower mount. I did all the work at the same time. I noticed a significantly better throttle response at all rpm ranges. Is this because all of above parts being replaced. Does timing belt stretch enough over time, that perfor...

Re: Up To Speed '06 V70 NA

5 speed, I'm jealous. Hard to find anything (new) with stick. I've owned manuals since I was 18 (too many years ago). What kind highway mileage do you get? Heard you have heavy foot.

Re: Up To Speed '06 V70 NA

I'd prefer a manual also, I was surprised when I got 29+ mpg on a recent highway trip, doing about 70-75 mph first time I was able to check. It's a comfortable highway cruizer. Thanks for your ver useful videos.

Re: Control arm - Is there a safe way to force it?

Just reading this post for future CA job.
Chrism, that 2 x 4/ chain method sounds good and pressing down with a knee or foot, would eliminate the need for a second set of hands.

'06 V70 upper shock mounts Topic is solved

Replacing rear shocks on '06 V70. Should upper shock mounts automatically get replaced. Outside of being torn (mine are not) why would they be replaced. Rubber pliabilty ?
Thanks all. G.G.

Re: Vintage MaxLife ATF

I've been doing drain and fills using this fluid on my '94 850 and '06 V70. I don't think your vintage fluid is synthetic.

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

Did my first Volvo timing belt,idler, tensioner replacement on my '06 V70 at 101,600 miles. Not as bad a job as I expected, but damn, those cam sprocket marks (lines) are small. There were some other marks (a dot and a makers mark) that had me going, but all went well, new accessory belt, buttoned e...
