Experiencing Persistant Exhaust Manifold leaks
Exhaust Manifold Gasket Replacement
My 2000 70XC with B5244T engine, has had engine light code issues P0422 since I bought it at 80,000 miles. The frequency that it would come on increased until it was on constantly. At 129,000 miles, a Volvo service tech told me I had an exhaust manifold leak, and most likely gasket replacement would end the code problem.
Bonus! More on The Volvo XC70
At its introduction, the second generation V70 XC received a major upgrade. It featured better ground clearance of 8.2 in (210 mm) thanks to a raised suspension, different bodywork with unpainted bumpers and fender extensions, and AWD as standard. An interior grab handle for the front passenger was installed only on this model. Early V70 XC featured special rear view mirrors, a feature that was discontinued after 2003.
Engine and gearbox choices were limited. Only the 2.5L low pressure turbo, or the D5 diesel engine with either a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission were available. No diesel version was offered for the North American market.
For 2003 the model was renamed the XC70, in keeping with Volvo’s newly introduced XC90
