Re: P80 -1998 developing coil failure 1275174

"Does this mean Earl is heading back home? What a great person you are to get the car back up and running so well."

I would simply like to echo Neil's sentiment (above). Abscate has been supremely generous with his time and knowledge on this one.

Sorry that this happened. I saw an image of the like-new Pirelli, opened up like a gutted fish. Not pretty.

Shouldn't it be the white mountain project? I think Mark needs to chime in here. Steve is off to the races with the Orange idea, as Syracuse was indeed the intended destination when trouble ensued. Car IS registered in the Green Mountain State. I can see the White Mountains of New Hampshire from my...

98 v70, white exhaust smoke, seek mechanic near Glens Falls NY

Hi folks, Daughter Dearest was en route to college when the v70 with 360k on the clock broke down. White smoke from the exhaust, reportedly "fan noise" linked to engine rpms during the failure. Towed off highway, no coolant in reservoir, or radiator. Wet engine bay, little to no compression. Car wil...

Re: P80 Fuel tank drop in 30 minutes

Wow. Maybe you should get on a pit crew? Thanks for sharing.

Would this work on a 98 XC AWD? If so, would this be a good start in a way to replace the fuel sending unit, as opposed to cutting a hole in the floor for access to same??

Re: 1999 S70 Auto-Temp Blower not working. Switch?

I don't wish to hijack this thread. However, I am having some similar symptoms on my 1998 v70. Fan motor is intermittent. Slider switch has no effect on fan motor most of the time. Swapped ECC unit with one from Erie Vo-Vo, but no improvement. Any thoughts?

I live where the roads are salted heavily, and many folks here swear by an annual application of Fluid Film spray-on corrosion protection. It is lanolin-based and clings very well to coated surfaces.

Cars in Vermont older than 15 years do not require a title to be transferred to a new owner. Depending upon when its deal was done, ownership of this car was probably transferred without title.
