Re: Help Me Figure Out This Tire Wear

I'm going to wrap up this thread with the declaration that the cause of my excess wear was old tires with weak sidewalls causing excess wear. This requires excess tire pressure to compensate. Solution: buy actually new tires with a proper load rating. Used tires is no longer an acceptable solution f...

Re: Junk Yard DO NOT LEAVE Parts

Just wanted to add to this really quick. I was at my local PNP and all of the Volvo were missing their wheels. There were 12 in the yard at the time. Three wheels between them. So this may be a hot ticket to grab while you're in there. Alloy wheels are the first thing the junkyards harvest because ...

Re: Replacing knuckle - abs and wheel hub questions

Personally I would just go ahead and replace the hubs and bearings while they're off. I had to do mine at 200k and 220k respectively. Make sure you have the correct Volvo bolts for the hubs. Hex head bolt will rub on the axles ask me how I know hahahahaha

Re: Herman and Operation 30MPG

Just wanted to report that Herman returned 23 mpg on this most recent tank. He's been sitting at 21mpg for almost the entire winter. Hopefully this trend continues!

Looks like the exhaust leak was causing the engine to run rich, or the pcv was causing backpressure in the engine. Or potentially, both!

Re: V70 LED Headlights Conversion

Yes. They work great. Here's what I used https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07VPDL9W3/ref=ppx_yo_mob_b_track_package_o0_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1 So to be clear, you bought 2 sets of the same bulbs? For 4 total bulbs all identical? Ah I can see that was misleading. Four Bulb 850 headlights use one pair of 900...

Re: Leaking Valve Stem Seals, Need Help Making A Decision. '95 Base Manual

Reinz is not OEM on the valve stem seals, there are threads about figuring it out by the color of the rubber portion, but I don't recall the outcome because it was still mostly speculation. I'd just buy the Volvo ones they are cheap insurance. Several threads about using the cheap ones and then the...

Re: Help Me Figure Out This Tire Wear

What is your typical load in kilograms or pounds that you carry? I think it is high? Inlcude passenger and driver weight in the total load. That is classic underinflaion which would wear the same as heavily loaded. Are you rotating every 10k or so? Let's see. There's my wife and myself that's about...
