How old is the coolant thermostat?
I honestly have no idea. It was supposed to be changed with the radiator hoses last week, but I couldn't get the bolts off the housing. One of them started to strip, so I backed off untill I could soak it it some bolt blaster.

Re: The best thing about driving an older Volvo that nobody talks about

I have to agree with this my current sedan is "step dad green" as we call it and it may as well be invisible. I suspect that it's because it's so ugly that similar to the cloaking system in hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy. You see it, but your brain finds it so offensive it ignores it hahahaha. :-D...

Re: Herman and Operation 30MPG

Well on my other 850 the winter blend would drop it about 2mpg, but this has been consistent since July when I bought the car.

Herman and Operation 30MPG

Well, long story short I've transferred from my old white 96 850 wagon to a green 95 sedan. I've suitably named him Herman after Herman Munster, because he is mostly built out of the parts that came off my old 96. These were both non turbo btw. I thought it might be fun to start a thread about Herma...

Re: Generic P80 AC clutch shim , bread clip, zip tie thread

I wanted to add to this fix. I actually found that guitar picks and super glue were perfect and worked on both of my 850's. Thin and medium guitar picks are what I used. If the Gap is large use medium, if it's only off a bit use thin picks. I then glued them to the rubber pressure pads. Has worked f...

Help me identify this mystery line!

I will post some pics later this afternoon. Basically I have a 1995 NA 850 with a manual. I just bought the car a few weeks ago and was doing some routine maintenance as the car has sat for a few years. There is a hard plastic line that runs from the front of the car towards the fuel tank. But I don...
