Re: 2007 S80 3.2 FWD Auto -Not responding to throttle

Your problem sounds more like a transmission problem than a Engine or Accelerator pedal problem. Try shifting into Manual mode and changing the gear when the problem occurs. If the Transmission thinks that you are requesting neutral instead of drive it would do exactly what you have described. What ...

Re: $10,000 S80 Challenge

MVS Readers, The battery on my S80 died suddenly. No warning was given. My Son drove it home and parked in the driveway and I went out an hour later to move it and it wouldn't start. I tried to recharge the battery but it didn't have enough capacity to even get the starter to click. Its a standard ...

Re: Paint job or real?

Matt, I really like the look. Thanks for sharing. I agree that it was done deliberately. It might me that the owner applied a paint stripper to expose bare metal and then washed the panel to get it to rust. Or it might be a Vinyl wrap. How will it pass MOT I thought in Europe visible rust was an aut...

Re: $10,000 S80 Challenge

MVS Readers, I wanted to share something I learned from another MVS member that I was helping. 1. The Thermostat does fail on the 3.0T just like it does on the 3.2 (its the same part) 2. A failed open Thermostat can significantly increase fuel consumption ...........Fuel consumption on my car recen...

Re: 2010 T6 - Alternator Spinning - READ side

The pulley on the READ side is attached by a bolt.

The reason that the pulley gets loose is because the clutch pulley on the Alternator stops working and it backs off the READ pulley

So you will need a Tool and a pulley for the Alternator

Good luck

Re: Should I buy an XC60 with 200K?

Volvo did make a change to the piston rings with the 3.2 (something about good intensions and the road to hell come to mind........or maybe the law of unintended consequences depending on what school you went to.) This change happed with Model Year 2010 but they changed the piston rings again at the...
