Re: Wtb 04 s60 2.5t engine vin 6&7 59

Any luck yet? I have one... in North Carolina, probably too far to ship for the cost though.

Re: Help with orphan electrical connector

I think if you look you might find one on the other side as well, with the same color wires. I am basing this off work on my 03 S60 that has two similar 3 prong connectors doing nothing. My guess on my car is that the are for the optional head light wipers. If the connector is fairly dirty inside it...

Re: Thoughts on this leak? with photo!

So... let's bring this thread to a close! We have success. Conclusions: On the previous install I did not do a good job cleaning up either the input shaft or the bushing that needs to center in the flex plate. Plus, the transmission was in the car and I was setting the motor in from the top, a chall...

Re: 2005 S60 CEL P0016 & P0017

I agree that it sounds like a subtle timing issue. VVT solenoids need cleaning or just an oil change?

Pull timing belt cover and check the timing mark alignment.

Any recent work done?

Re: 2004 S60 2.5T Hello!

As the owner of two S60s, a 2001 and a 2003, one of which was free and the other I paid $1600 for the car and a spare motor... I would say this car and about $1800 will get you a reliable driver worth about $3200.

On my cars, I figure I am paying myself about $2.50/hour. But hey, its a hobby...

Re: Thoughts on this leak? with photo!

@first I don't know the history of the transmission. The car came to me from a friend. The car belonged to his sister and had a catastrophic oiling failure (likely blew out the rear main seal due to PCV system being clogged,) and spun a bearing. I received the car with the engine disassembled, but b...

Re: Thoughts on this leak? with photo!

Thanks to you both. @Mo, Funny how we try to find that balance between work/hobby/life. I enjoy working on cars as a hobby, might make it more if I can as I get closer to "retirement" age. I thought about that apparent oil seepage too. When I pulled the transmission I was not able to keep the TC wit...

Re: Thoughts on this leak? with photo!

@MoVolvos, the really sad thing is I am a contractor... so you think I would have connections... any way I go the transmission out today, and, as one might guess, there was no obvious defect in the seal. Photos attached. Two thoughts, I should have cleaned up the torque converter shaft where it mate...

Re: Flexplate compatibility between models

I suggest doing a part # look up from a site like Lisle Volvo where you can enter your specific VIN then cross referencing that part # to other models. Another strategy would be to determine the engine designation type https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volvo_V70 and then figure out what other models use...

Re: Thoughts on this leak? with photo!

@MoVolvos, yes it is a luxury... and the older I get the more thankful I am to have the lift. I am in Winston-Salem, so yes, hot in the summer and cold in the winter. I just had to draw the line somewhere, the next steps would have been insulation, then you might as well throw some heat in there... ...
