Evaluation of motor this weekend.

Got 30mm socket on crank pulley - I can feel crank turning and resistance in pistons. I removed starter and confirmed that the flywheel is moving slightly, but then I put Pooh sticks into all cylinders, 1-4 move but number 5 is stuck firm.

Gentle pressure on pistons confirms movement in 1-4, none in 5

Borescope in 5 unremarkable.

Ive got a feel I have stuck ring in the bore.

Added MMO/diesel/acetone in a proprietary mixture, known only to MVS, to Cylinder 5.

Planned strategy - give it a week soak, then see if I can break it free and retain compression.

A well working MM ETM body will be sacrificed to Odin, God of Volvo this week for compensation.

Dropped 4 liters ATF from drain, very small amount of sludge on fill plug

15/16 inch wrench on plug
ATF washer part 977751 18x24mm

Added 3 liters Dexron Maxlife ATF To low cold mark 10 minute run

Converted key to new keys with spare antenna ring located under dash - now have three keys to drive!

One funny bit - car does one immob fail cycle of start, stall - then starts flawlessly.
Hmmmmm

Solved mystery ...if key is left in immob to long a ECM 0750? Pops according to web. This maps to P1081, which was present. When I cleared it, car starts immediately
The burning question, how long is too long to trigger code?

No power to seats or 12VDC area - connector under console loose

Replaced Coffee Cup holder with spare from parts car - Kaching!

158700 - replaced PS reservoir (Volvo) and supply hose (Rein) from FCP - Oetiker clamps
Drained and renewed PS fluid with Maxlife ATF with Gibbons method - two flushes.
Replaced hose clamps on Coolant overflow to radiator nipple.

Added 500 mL ATF to full cold mark after short trip

Replaced EVAP J and L hose to canister /rollover
3/4inch PEX fittings work perfectly on hoses.
Cleaned, dressed and painted canister Bracket
Replacd hardware with SS from Lowes


AC equilibrated at 35 DELTA at ambient 85F

Troubleshot and repair passenger side MCC controller wire.
