Re: 850 base 0410 code causing high idle, poor fuel economy

Good points! Radio Shacks were a great source for small electronic parts. They're all gone from the Twin Cities MN area now. Hopefully, a diode sourced from Walmart or online will be correct. What will happen if its properly identified but poorly made; does something fry? What wattage irons do ppl u...

Volvo 850 P80 replace a/c dryer - tutorial

I posted this on MVS last summer but I can't find it, so I'm reposting. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B2vVfbJibK08THlqSzZjdTJEUzA That link should bring you to my google-drive page where you'll find a pdf that can be downloaded. If you're also replacing the evaporator, abscate (MVS moderat...

Re: 850 base 0410 code causing high idle, poor fuel economy

What's strange is that none of those issues appeared to be present until that fateful night last October when the IAC hose came off the vacuum tree and I stumbled home—then the high idle and lower gas mileage became obvious. So, what's mysterious is that it seems to run well otherwise. But maybe wit...

Re: 850 base 0410 code causing high idle, poor fuel economy

I could do the diode to get rid of the CEL but is that going to correct the high idle? It's the idle I want to bring down and hopefully restore the great gas mileage I had been getting on this manual trans base 2.4 — high 20's up to 30 highway. So that's first priority.

850 base 0410 code causing high idle, poor fuel economy

Last fall, before I parked this old friend for the winter, I limped home a few miles with the engine jumping around due to massive air leak—hose from IAC had come loose. After I secured the hose the idle (which has always been steady at 700) is now high ~ 1200 and gas mileage is little off. After si...

Re: P80 heavy braking smell, measured rotor temp 200F

A few years ago on my way to work I had a smoking hot left front brake. I was close to work so let it cool for a couple of minutes and made it in. Scary. It looked like it might light up. At the end of the day, I drove slowly on side streets and used the brakes very lightly, there was still a little...

Re: What's fair price for a clean 2001 t5 wagon, ~ 140k miles?

That one's gone. It did look pretty and had some good features. I got as far as luke warm and would have taken a close look at it but it was 200 mile round trip. The discussion was helpful though in helping me to think it through. Had it been a manual trans I think I would have jumped on it. Now the...

Re: What's fair price for a clean 2001 t5 wagon, ~ 140k miles?

gmh: Thanks for the link, I read all the reports, it's great that so many owners of Volvos in the 99-02 vintage bracket have had a successful fix with the XeMODeX update. There are also quite a few with ongoing problems after they got the update—that's what concerns me. Even with multiple returns, s...
