1999 v70r engine options

I have a '99 v70r (near 300k miles) with a bad engine. it is showing a code for a miss on cylinder 1 (p0301), the compression on cylinder 1 is 60psi and cylinder 2 is 90 psi. I have not checked the other cylinders since it really does not matter. The plugs and coils have been changed with no improve...

Re: 1998 S70 hard shifting issues

I concur but want to make sure that all bases are covered before putting a used transmission in it.

Re: 1998 S70 hard shifting issues

I have checked the motor mounts and the lower right mount appears to be near new. One thing that I noticed is that the left side of the engine seems low to me. The transmission is sitting on the little rubber donut on the left side frame rail and has a lot less clearance than my 1999 v70r does in th...

Re: 1998 S70 hard shifting issues

Everyone, Thank you for the responses and sorry for the delay. I did the drain and fill method twice to flush it out. Ran it about 40 - 50 miles before the second drain and did not add any kind of cleanser of additive to the trans. I will check the fluid level tomorrow to make sure that it is correc...

1998 S70 hard shifting issues

All, I recently purchased a 1998 s70 t5 automatic for my daughter that has a hard shift issue going into 3rd and 4th gear. Does anyone know what may be causing this? There are no codes being set and the up arrow is not blinking. The condition is better when the transmission is cold and when under li...

Re: 1999 v70r engine replacement questions

Thank you everyone for the replies. As to why it cracked in the first place, I believe that it is a design problem in the block. I have seen several identical cracks pictured online in both the 5 and 6 cylinder engines. This is an engine and car that are absolutely stock and have never been abused i...

1999 v70r engine replacement questions

It looks like I will be needing a replacement engine for my 1999 v70r (200000 miles) soon due to a crack in the back of the block between cylinders 1 and 2. The engine is dripping antifreeze from this point and there is a rusty line on the block. Engines for this car seem to be hard to find at least...
