Re: Is timing off??

My former 2001 V70 T5 went about 4 days after a timing belt change before it threw a code. The shop said one of the cams was off one tooth. Ran better after that.

Re: Magnefine Filter for 2006 s60 AWD

On the three Volvo's I currently own, a 01 V70 2.4T, a 02 V70 2.4T and a 05 S60 2.5T awd, when I first got them I started doing drain and fills. The original oil comes out looking mostly black and the drain magnet pretty crapped up. As several drain and fills go by, the transmission oil starts showi...

Re: Magnefine Filter for 2006 s60 AWD

A couple of drain and fills gets the transmission fluid more "red", and you get to clean the magnet on the plug. My Volvo's get a drain and fill once a year during an engine oil change. Its pretty basic, but should help the cars transmission life span. Today, I'm doing a 300+ mile fall foliage drive...

Re: Pre-oiling? Topic is solved

Messy, but put motor oil in the filter housing to speed up oil pressure.

Re: Alignment issues?

The tires ARE worn and will be replaced. Start here.
Tire choice can be area where different new tires will feel different at highway speeds, or driving hard thru exit ramps.

Re: Hello Guys

Its more of a drive for you, but there's a U-Pull It in New Ringgold Pa. I'll also say that there will be generally 2004 and earlier. Not saying that they won't have an 06, but more of the 01 to 04 years. A place to keep in mind if your in the area.

Re: Popping/backfiring sound when idling

Check compression. Maybe you have a bad valve leaking back.

Re: Engine Sludge: Any Updated Fix?

The previous owner had the car for about 2 years and by the looks, I suspect he didn't change the the oil filter. I think this can happen on quite a few S60, when owners service them at a cheap local garage that doesn't have the tool to remove the filter cup, and perhaps even more so cannot order th...

Re: OIL pressure sensor icon at startup

A lady at work years back would say to me, Hey Rob, there's a gravy boat lit up on my dashboard. What does that mean?
We laughed a bit and then I would add oil to her little Mitsubishi.

Re: 06 S60, Weird Starting Issue

On a 98 S70 t5 I had,.........I seemed to have battery issues or charging issues. I installed one of my digital voltmeters inside the car so I could see what was going on. The readings were in the lower 13's and jumped around a bit, not showing a steady charge. One day I touched and felt the positiv...
