2009 xc90 3.2 r design awd slight antifreeze smell in cabin

Hello, I have been wondering as of this winter when I turned the heat on. I smelled a very slight smell of antifreeze in the cabin of the car. The heat works great, I checked my anti freeze level and it was low. I add more antifreeze but I do not see any leaking on the ground. I put down cardboard b...

No winter tires used on mine, but I thought it might be a MAF issue or something along those lines?

2009 xc90 3.2 awd Better gas mileage in the summer but not in the winter WHY?

Hello everyone, I have noticed that I get better gas mileage in the summer months as opposed to the winter months. I cant figure out why? I live in new England and I understand that in the winter months the gas is blended. Also I know I warm the car up longer but still it is a least a 100 mile diffe...

2009 Xc90 r-design 3.2 AWD just turned 100,000 what maintenance should I do?

Hi all, I bought the car with 89,000 on it and have just changed the oil. The previous owner really took care of it. I’m not sure what maintenance they did but it is in excellent shape. I am going to change the plugs but is there anything else I should do. I can’t do much myself. But basic things bu...

2009 Xc90 3.2 AWD r-design motor number

Hello when I was looking up a part it asked me for my motor number. It started with a letter, I can’t find the dam thing anywhere. I think it has the letter B in it and most likely stamped on the block somewhere. It is my first Volvo, so a little of a learning curve. I have owned Saab’s for ever and...

Best spark plugs for 2009 AWD xc90 3.2 r-design?

I have looked on Eeuro for spark plugs and they have a bunch of different ones, two types that carry the Volvo name. In my saab I use nkg plugs which that car loves. But I am not sure how Volvo's do with them.

Re: 2009 95,000 Xc90 r design should I do a tune up

With the spark plugs should I use the NGK laser iridium ones? or the Volvo ones? The only coils I saw were on eeuro and they have the oem ones but they are not made by bosch. Should I still look for the Bosch ones or use the oem Volvo ones?
