It’s good to see the parking brakes work well on P2s

I just joined, picked me up a 98 V70 GLT AWD back in July. Its 428 - Coral Red Metallic in color, with 3980 Taupe Leather interior, it had 232,700KM when I bought it, now has just over 237,000KM. I bought it with a bunch of oil leaks, I thought it was just one large leak, but turned out it had 2 large oil leaks, and a bunch of smaller ones being masked. The oil cooler hose had a pin hole in it, rear exhaust cam seal had pushed out of the head were the large leaks, I replaced the cooler hoses, replaced the cam seal. I put a new timing belt kit and water pump on it, the transmission output on the passenger side was leaking, so I had to remove the bevel gear to replace the seals and sleeve in between. The bevel gear was not leaking at all, so I just changed oil and re-installed it, then the bevel gear output seal started leaking, so I changed it in the car. I replaced the front CV on the AWD prop shaft as the boot was missing, replaced the rear shocks with used ones, replaced the rear springs since the right one had 1 broken off coil, I have done a full tune up on it, including replacing the cabin filter, all coolant hoses, pcv system, I changed the heater core too and re-charged the a/c. Drivers side heat was stuck on hot, so I had to change the blend door actuator on that side as well. But I like the style of these vehicles, and this one now rides nice and quiet, no clunks, only some oil leaks still, like my power steering, the steering shaft seal is leaking, I'll look into rebuilding that in the spring time.

I work on Volvo's all day, and now I have one so I can work on it all night. Only difference is that I work on Volvo trucks during the day, which is why I put a "D13 Volvo Power" emblem on the back of my V70. The turn signal stalk in their pre 2019 truck is identical to my V70.
