Re: Hood release cable replacement

"I've read somewhere that if you take your front indicators off, you can get to the bonnet catches. Apparently the indicators are held in with spring clips?" It's technically possible to do this, but you have to know exactly where the release lug is on the latch, b/c you can't see it. If you are tha...

Re: Sell or Trade-In 1993 Volvo GLT? Columbus OH - Go Buckeyes

If a prospect wants to know where to find a replacement marker light, Rock Auto had them at least until several years ago when I last bought one. You need to specify 93 because the front profile is different for later models. I think they were priced around $15.00. Mine looks like yours, has around ...

Re: Decipering OBDII readers: questions

Robert's video, as we've come to expect from him, is well done and very useful! Surprised to see a different scanner he used, I guess b/c it works with both Apple and Android phones.

On the Android platform, does anybody know if whether Veepeak is superior to ELM327?

It would be great if somebody would set this up on an android phone and give us a walk-through with demo!

Decipering OBDII readers: questions

8 years ago, I used the ELM327with Torque app on a cross country trip in my 850 base. It was fine for what I needed, accurate speed, MPG, a couple of other things. Now, I'm looking at the ELM327 again and found this recent post by esl-97-850-T5 on what appears to be the latest fully featured 850 upd...

Re: Oil - What weight do you use? (Please forgive me for asking...)

I used to use Amsoil in my 93 854 when I first bought it in 2008 but after acquiring 2 96 855's I went to whatever "full synthetic" brand is on sale and usually in the 10-40 viscosity, although I've used 5-40. Here in Minnesota my 93 (which I drive as my winter car) starts readily on 10-30 even at -...

Re: 850 OEM axles ?

My guess: Drivers side looks like it might be original, passenger side doubtful due to the finish color and deterioration.
