2001 V70 XC vibrates a lot at idle

Post by benpineapple » Tue Oct 22, 2019 8:15 am

Hello! I picked up an '01 V70 XC with 155,xxx miles for my partner a few months ago. It was a bit of a "mechanic's special", had a lot of cosmetic issues and only a few small mechanical issues. The typical A/C clutch issue, which I shimmed and have had no issues with since. But right off the bat I thought it was idling hard, or vibrating at idle. No CEL, doesn't feel like misfires or anything like that bad. The vibrating doesn't bother my partner, but I would still like to get it fixed. I'm sure the cold temps aren't going to make it feel any better.

I've replaced the PCV system, upper motor mount, lower PS motor mount, and the front hydraulic motor mount. If it's anything like my old '98 V70, I'm assuming there is another DS motor mount somewhere, but the setup on this one is different than what I'm familiar with.

Is item #52 in that diagram the DS motor mount? I remember on my V70 the DS mount simple rested in place on the subframe.

Is there something else I should look for that might be making the car vibrate at idle? I'm thinking next steps to replace spark plugs, lower trans torque mount. Let me know what you think! Let me know if you have any questions.

I think you also need this one. These are pictures from my S80 2.4T, but should be (near) identical

Yeah those are the mounts that I mentioned I replaced already (lower PS, lower front). I'm hoping to get an ID on the other lower motor mount (on driver's side).

Afaik that should also be a round one, so

-Upper Engine mount (the round or square one)
-Front engine mount (big round one)
-Rear engine mount (big round one)
-Side engine mount (the triangle one with the metal plate)
-Front gearbox mount

That should be all.
