96 N/A - Tracking down a vacuum leak...

This is a springboard from my prior problems starting as a consistent misfire in Cyl 1. I've pulled the #1 injector and replaced it with like-kind. Resistance on all of the injectors is between 18.0-19.5 ohms. No real noticeable difference in idle or run with the replacement injector, but 1-2 days l...

Re: 96 N/A auto and 96 N/A 5sp ECUs interchangeable?

Unless it's in the emissions description, where in the VIN do you see automatic transmission? Are you checking VIDA or another official Volvo database, because as far as I know, the VIN doesn't differentiate that. Otherwise, we could ID these in ads or on websites without having to scour junkyards ...

Re: 96 N/A auto and 96 N/A 5sp ECUs interchangeable?

...and maybe was flashed after a manual swap. You can't know for sure...but notes on it could mean that it had manual software installed. Try it....with key in pos.II you should have flashing arrow....if not....it isn't flashed. Is there any special protocol for changing out an ECU? I’m thinking th...

Re: front fire? I thought this was just a head job after a brief overheat. Was there a fire? If so that opens other possibilities.

+1 on the MAF though, but if these cars will run (somewhat) with the MAF unplugged not sure that is what is holding up the works in this case.

Re: 96 N/A auto and 96 N/A 5sp ECUs interchangeable?

Generally,ecu(s) are not interchangeable because of software differences. The car will run with it,but not properly. Transmission will not shift properly because look up table for auto trans is missing...orange arrow will be ON,idle will not be adequate...and you will be risking to ruin your auto t...

96 N/A auto and 96 N/A 5sp ECUs interchangeable?

Hi, I snagged the ECU out of a 96 N/A 5sp the other day thinking it would fit in my 96 N/A auto. The engine VIN codes for both cars are 55, and the emissions VIN code for both cars is 4. Are these interchangeable based on part number and VIN code match alone? Or, does the unit from a 5sp or Auto hav...

I have to say, while it's not my aesthetic, I do admire their creativity, esp. with the door panel inserts.
