Next time you do that, make sure to have a friend take a picture of you next to the car in an orange hunting cap with a wrench in your hand... I'm not familiar with this reference You know, like a hunter posing with his kill. The wrench standing in for a rifle. Oh I get it now. Red fluid. 😄

Re: The great P80 Volvo Bloopers - Idiots - Fails thread - April 2020

Life's an adventure right? Would have loved to see those 18inch shifter throws :lol: I was changing the transmission fluid in my xc90 one day. It was the first time on this vehicle as the old fluid was charcoal black and there was only 85,000 on the odometer. I chose the complete fluid exchange meth...

Re: 96 850 Turbo: Codes P0302 P1310 - problem ONLY during idle

I suppose a vacuum leak or a dirty idle air controller could be to blame. A smoke test would make leaks easier to find. Logically speaking would a fuel pressure issue result in worse performance at higher rpm when the fuel rail is being emptied faster? We are also assuming you have good spark plugs,...

Re: 96 850 Turbo: Codes P0302 P1310 - problem ONLY during idle

I know in the US you can often rent the tools from some of the parts stores. I am not familiar with the stores but try Autozone or the likes. Or you can usually get a quick test using a mechanical tire pressure gauge on the Schraeder valve on the fuel rail. Use a cloth around the tire gauge while p...

You can still have bad wires after cleaning. I had a mystery just like yours that would happen at wierd times. It took a year to generate a misfire code. I dont know if you have a second set of known good spark plug wires to trade out one at a time and see the difference.

Re: Volvo Findings! (What have you found on Craigslist?)

The Advanced Auto Parts Store guys have enough trouble finding what you need when you tell them the correct Make/Model. :roll: :D For real. My brother went into Autozone yesterday for an AC belt for his Miata. The guy was so confused... kept trying to correct him to "serpentine belt". No,...
