Rad replacement

Post by sxybrick » Thu Mar 26, 2020 8:33 pm

Just replaced the rad in '98 v70 GLT took rad, fan and intercooler all apart and thought I put everything back exactly the same but car has no power beyond 2000 rpms just bogs down and sputters...what did I forget or did wrong during reassembly? Any ideas?

Sounds like massive air leak somewhere. Double check all your intercooler/air hoses.

Brings back memories of my loose induction hose, right at top of intercooler, under the “ ledge” where you can’t see it

After my ......drum roll


Radiator replacement job.
