Back into a Volvo!

Post by 5ft24 » Tue Jun 25, 2019 12:23 pm

Well, After having owned a 1990 740 and 740 Turbo, I am finally back in the family.
Picked up a 2004 XC90 T6 AWD Sunday, 186000 miles, clean, runs good with a few minor things.
Seems to have a bit of a surge when you get on it. TCV? Have one ordered. Checked hoses, clamps etc, no leaks. Cleaned MAF, changed oil etc.
Also on startup, cold or hot, Idle RPM goes to 1500-1600 and hangs there for a minute before it comes back down to normal. Dealership shows they did a TB Clean a while back.
Anything spectacular to look for?
Thanks

Whoo! back in it you are :-)

Look for transmission hesitation when shifting into D or when moving from a stop. These are known for transmission problems. You did your homework, yes?

Whatever the case, welcome back. Put up some photos!

5ft24, here's the first 45 or so results from a Google search of MVS for your model. In a way, it represents the most searched-on, "important" information Google knows about it from what's already on MVS.


[Removed/emailed to 5ft24... if any future readers/XC90 T6 owners want this, contact me outside of this topic and I'll mail it to you. It's nothing you can't get from a XC90 T6 Google search narrowed to MVS.]
