Re: 1996 850 GLT Split Front Seat Covers, OPTIONS.

I transplanted a 1998 driver's seat into my 1995. Both were power seats with heaters. My local pick&pull yard charges less than $25 for a complete seat. The 1999-2000 seat skins fit, but those years have electrical seat air bags and the entire seat swap is not compatible with the earlier cars. The b...

Re: fuel tank plumbing 98 v70 AWD

You have probably seen this before: https://www.oemvolvopartsdirect.com/v-1998-volvo-v70--x-c-awd--2-4l-l5-gas/fuel-system--fuel-system-components They also have an EVAP diagram somewhere. My 1998 had a cracked vacuum line by the right rear wheel which I replaced with a piece of rubber fuel line. Wa...

Re: Front End Creak/Squeak

Probably a strut mount spring seat, quite common. Take a large wrench or pliers and try to turn the large nut at the top of the strut (in the engine bay) clockwise. If it resists turning or moves back to its original position, then it is in good shape. If it turns easily, then the spring seat needs ...

Re: Volvo S70 not starting - Hissing sound near fuel filter

If the spark plugs were/are wet, why do you suspect fuel delivery? What about spark? Is the coil OK?

Re: '96 850 Brake Problems

did you replace left and right bulbs or just one side? An older bulb may draw more current and cause the bulb out routine to light up.

Re: Size of Bolts for 850 Air Guide (Splash Shield)

My 1995 has course threads. The bolt is about 1/2 inch in length. It has a 10mm head. It also has a washer, about 3/4 inch diameter.

Re: '96 850 Heating and AC Problems

Find a new unit at a junk yard or pick&pull. It might be possible to tear your unit apart and repair the switch, but that would take quite some time and I am sure you want heat tomorrow.

Re: Engine Oil Question

No harm done, even when it gets 105F in the shade. The owner's manual has a graph with viscosity and temp. Just remember, back in 1997, 0W30 oil didn't exist and that is what is used in newer cars.

BTW, synthetic should be good for 7500 miles of 'normal' driving.

Re: need help debugging my 2007 XV70 turbo I5 AWD

Don't worry about the spitting tail pipe, that happens when the muffler doesn't get hot enough to evaporate the condensed water. Pull the two injectors and test them in a cup to see if they spray correctly while the starter is spinning the engine. Sounds like #3 isn't working. When doing a compressi...

Re: 1995 855T Failing Cat

Oops. I forgot to say the error code was from A-2. Yes, there are ABS codes, but they are in A-3. Most ABS failures will light up the ABS/TRKS lights, not the CEL.

Nice to have fender mounted OBDI rather than a dumb scanner (which I have).
