1999 V70 T5 PCV Intake Manifold Re Installation DIY

The late P80 cars have thermostatted PCV. Yeah! I’m convinced they clog much less than early P80s. I changed my oil with Dino every 5k with this car and really had minimal sludging.

Reinstalling the manifold is hard though as you have extra stuff.

2002 Volvo AW55-50SN Transmission Disengages While Driving

The disengagement feels like something is not locking up, like the converter. The disengagement happens more in the city when I am starting and stopping, but it still happens on the freeway. For example on the freeway at 70 mph, the car all of a sudden goes into limp mode or the trans disengages. At this moment, the car starts coasting and I step on the gas, but obviously no response – the rpms goes up slightly to sometimes to 2 or 3000 rpms, and then the car kicks back into gear. This disengagement period happens for a minute or it can go on for 5, or 10 miles.
