Re: 2000 v70xc 2.4T idle problem/power problem *long*

no and... no. I have a cheap ODB code reader and that is all I have access to at the moment.

2000 v70xc 2.4T idle problem/power problem *long*

had a stumbling idle and bog down with no power- wouldn't go above about 2200rpm. With the MAF sensor unplugged I got rid of the no power/bogging down issue but the idle would drop to nearly a stall- but it did it intermittently. I didn't think the MAF was the issue but I replaced it with new. No im...

Re: V70 Upholstery

Do you have a link or their phone? Was that $150 for the seat bottom or the entire seat?

V70 Upholstery

Anyone have a source for cheap leather (or pleather- not picky) replacement upholstery for the front seats? Mine are worn and cracked they are interior code 3960. I found a single bottom seat cover that is available on ebay for $120 but that doesn't include R&R which will take a little while with th...

I removed turbo tubings and the cooling fan/shroud assembly, then removed the intake pipe from under the ETM, then dropped the ETM, and started replacing the parts in reverse order. I ended up with two small screws that I DO NOT KNOW WHERE THEY CAME FRO...

Re: 1999 Volvo V70XC Hard Start - Check Valve install Topic is solved

Followed your pictorial pretty much exactly and have no leaks (YAHH!) and will hopefully have better starts. The fittings I went with are pretty much exactly as pictured and if I ever have to redo the fuel pump I can replace this contraption with a standard fuel filter easily! Thanks for doing all t...

Re: Timing belt

I'm torn about it; it's not that I am too worried about it breaking immediately but there is as angelglo says peace of mind knowing everything is good. I noticed the manual states 105k for the change interval but I am pretty sure no sane person lets their timing belt go that long- or am I wrong? My ...
