MVS Forum Member jderevj asks:

Help? I’m doing a 60K mile tune-up: does my 1999 S70 have a distributor cap and rotor? Can you tell me where the PCV filter is located? Would the “flame trap” be the same as the PCV filter? I am familiar with much older Volvos. How are the timing and the idle adjusted? Thank you, John in Calif.

MVS Forum member Another Guest adds:

Its distributorless and has coil-packs. Plugs are still easy to change. If its a turbo there is no flame-trap. The PCV can is under the intake manifold and is almost impossible to get to IMO.

Usually timing and idle adjust themselves unless something is wrong. When something is wrong you will usually get a Check engine Light.

Consider doing the fuel filter, plugs, air filter, cabin filter and having the Throttle Body cleaned by someone familiar with the Volvo TB issues. The 99 Timing belt isn’t due until 105K I think.
