Re: Volvo P2 used market

Totally agree with Abcate on that last post. Craigslist filled XC70/90's. I think a lot of non DIY Volvo owners hit the 100k wall and have the dealerships giving quotes of 3-5k to bring the vehicle up to snuff. Dealers dont want them as trade ins, that's where us DIY'ers can make out. 150.00 hr. lab...

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

Added IPD poly inserts to the engine crossbar end mounts of my '06 Volvo V70. They definitely stiffen up the brace, a little more snap from start and no noticeable added vibration. For $10.95 you can't go wrong. Glenn

And I always thought I was just missing one. Just checked, your right Pete.

Re: Got a problem! Topic is solved

I decided to put my shoulder into, hoping not break the cable or release handle and luckily it popped open. Yup, I have the one hood strut/ no rear swaybar model. Hood stays up when up on ramps but on flat ground I've taken some good shot to head, that insulation pad underneath the hood isn't just f...

Got a problem! Topic is solved

I was doing a drain and fill on my transmission. With the long funnel and quart bottle I had sitting in it, it was above the horizontal plane of where the hood closes. I went to get another quart, wind blew, hood slammed shut, and now can’t open probably because of the upward pressure of everything ...

Strut bar brace mounts?

I recently installed an upper engine torque mount on my '06 V70, old one was really bad.This strut brace bar is new to me. Should I be able to turn the bar a little bit with one hand. Does this mean the left and right mounts are bad if I can. Thanks in advance, Glenn.

Re: Taconic Parkway to NYC Fall 2019

I had a flat tire on a section of it north of 84 and had to pull off in the grass to change it. I went exploring in the woods to find a flat and big enough rock to support the jack for my truck. Flat was on the drivers side so I at least got cooled off by the cars whizzing by, it was 95 degrees. Som...

Re: Taconic Parkway to NYC Fall 2019

Taconic is a beautiful ride, especially this time of the year, it's a shame over the years it's become a commuter racetrack at 7 on the morning. Just don't get a flat tire while on it.

Couple of questions

I'm jumping over here from the XC/V70 forum to ask a few questions, any input would be greatly appreciated. My daughter is looking at '11 XC90 3.2L with 108k mikes on it. Any specific quirks to be concerned about with these vehicles. Do they have timing belts or chains and pvc systems, like the earl...

'06 V70 NA throttle response

I recently replaced timing belt, upper/ lower torque mounts and right side lower mount. I did all the work at the same time. I noticed a significantly better throttle response at all rpm ranges. Is this because all of above parts being replaced. Does timing belt stretch enough over time, that perfor...
