Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

Regarding pictures, definitely the emergency hood cable we've covered in the other thread, I'm also a sucker for a well waxed car, and just in general pictures really make a thread. There might not be something immediately that grabs me but in a few months I might have to do a repair you've covered...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

Rear main seal is what I fear most - it would be the end of that car. Way too expensive to fix that. The turbo looked ok. If it is the RMS, best short term solution is ATP-205 or switch to 40 weight oil. And I say short term, but I switched to Mobil1 10w-40 HM over 2 years ago to prolong repairing ...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

Yesterday I finally got around to fixing some of the leaks on my 150k mile1998 V70 GLT. Replaced the rear cam seal (which was a snap), the pcv breather system (which was a pain), and both oil cooler lines (which somehow was way harder than the pcv breather and way more of an oily mess). That killed...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

Wait. People wax their cars without removing the license plate? Savagery. Add another item to the used car inspection list. The attachment of the rear plate on the p80 is an engineering beauty. The two screws recess into the trunk/tailgate lid so they don’t corrode The threads on my screws weren't ...

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

Thread is fantastic, a lovely project with some great progress. I have to ask where on earth the pictures are though! There are several jobs you've attended that would no doubt of interest to others, for which some pictures highlighting the what and how would be useful. As for manual swapping it, I...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

Did some work on my T5, so she doesn't feel too neglected. Rotated the tires, replaced my broken driver's side turn signal (held on with tape), checked all the fluids (need to buy more oil to add), installed and stashed an emergency hood release cable, and did another partial flush of the power stee...

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

My T5 is already my fun car, and unfortunately it gets better fuel economy being the fun car than the AWD gets being a FWD daily driver. That slushbox penalty really hurts being in the mountains. I'm interested in getting AWD back in it so that it can be solid winter commuter, as I'm gonna be spendi...

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

An old friend in Canada may have found me a functioning drive line out of an S70 AWD, complete with an M58. Debating if I'm crazy enough to perform an M58 swap on my AWD. An AWD manual sounds great, but is the effort worth the reward?

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

Drove the T5 today into the mountains for a hike. Got back to the car just as thunderstorms were approaching. Turned the key on, fuel pump buzzed, turned to start and.... nothing but a click from the relay. Fortunately I was parked facing downhill, so I just bumped started it (pros of having a manua...

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

To: What am I doing, or Abscate. Could you please take a picture of what you guys know as the TCV ? I have a 99 S70 Turbo AWD that I don't think has a correct turbo control valve or an accurate vacuum hose diagram or an actual FPR at the exhaust manifold on passenger side at firewall as per the onl...
