Re: Buzzer for parking lights maybe low oil switch

After owning many cars over my lifetime, I too came back to a Volvo with a dead battery. All our Volvo's are now driven with the headlight switch in the upright position, so that they are on all the time and turn off when you shut the car off. In all three cars center compartment are two low beam bu...

Re: Yet another 2001 volvo question

When I was 18, I had a 1966 Alfa Romeo Guilia Sprint Gt. Back then, a 5 speed transmission and no red line on the tach was like being in the LeMans movie. It also had an Abarth exaust system and just velocity stacks on the two DCOE Webers.
God I was cool! lol

Re: Yet another 2001 volvo question

I'm 4 years into owning a 2001 V70 2.4t with the original neutral/stop function. At 181,000 miles, it works perfect. If I was an aggressive driver, or like most normal "todays" drivers, I can see where rapidly jumping from the brake pedal to hitting the gas pedal would eventually cause more wear and...

Re: 2004 XC70 P0733 Gear 3 incorrect ratio Topic is solved

The Seafoam is a cleaner that might be a last resort before pulling the transmission. I had the Seafoam Trans/Hydro cleaner in my 2002 V70, but I was only trying to improve a first gear downshift. It worked for a while and then I switched from the trans fluid that you are using, to Valvoline Max Lif...

Re: 2004 XC70 P0733 Gear 3 incorrect ratio Topic is solved

The only thing I would know to do is pull out the servo assy and put in the IDP servo kit. Make sure everything looks ok. Three drain and fills, and hope for the best.
I'd try Seafom Trans Tune after the above didn't work.

Re: Whining noise And slight vibration , changes with RPM

Years back on my 01 V70 I had a noise that seemed to sound like a power steering pump. I started changing the power steering fluid and the noise never got quieter. A couple of days later the alternator clutch assy grenaded and now I knew where the noise was coming from. Sure seemed like it was a pow...

Re: Radiator protection?

Replaced a radiator this Spring after hitting my first parking barrier. I thought I got away with it, but saw a couple of drips days later. Probably the original radiator on my 01 V70, so a lesson learned for me.

Re: Volvo 2.5T AWD 2003 Automatic delay 3 to 4

Some ramblings, from my 2002 V70 2.4t. I bought this wagon about 4.5 years ago with a complete set of extensive dealer service records, but at 125,000 miles, nobody changed the transmission fluid. During the test drive I noticed the transmission wasn't shifting normal, but my wife totaled our 98 S70...

Re: Anti skid and ABS service lights

I'd get it scanned. Unfortunately for me, my 05 S60 2.5t awd module was faulty. When the shop did the repair they found the ABS module had yellow junk yard paint on it for their identification, so someone tried to fix it. And mine took the pump too. I went with the Xemodex unit and its been fine for...
