  2. Volvo wanted $5.95AU...local mechanic gave me wrong globe(screw in) and went back and got right one which is plug in as per this clip..$1.00AU...seems to have same brightness!
  3. Last week
  4. Hello gentlemen. In my S60R B5254T4 the cylinder liner broke. I want to use a B5234T3 block with a 81mm sleeve and a cylinder head from my B5254T4 with all the accessories. I searched for detailed information on the subject but nothing concrete I found. I heard that I can use my connecting rod and crankshaft 2.5T to increase the stroke from 90mm to 93.2 and the capacity to 2.4L. Which pistons do I use, with 2.3L? Please tell me about this assembly of 2.3 T5 + B5254T4 block in the best configuration. I am from Poland, I was thinking about using the recommended block B5244T5, but in my region 2.3T5 engine is more than half cheaper so I would like to build a motor on this block
  5. So just clocked 240K and thought things running well finally and right rear number plate bulb gone! Found this you tube video to replace: Also testing my Aircon with new Fan resistor seems to only hit 4 and not as cold when switch on MAX COLD.....used to be freezing and running on 5 speed(Auto)
  6. Earlier
  7. I have an 06 V70R that I'm interested in selling and have no idea what to ask for it. It's a GT with a mere 266K miles. Runs well, drives well but it's not perfect. I put a different block in it at 249K (cracked liner). The donor motor had ~150k. I reused my head because it was pressure checked, milled flat, and had a hot bath. The old head was better so I used that one. I blew up the turbo at 255k. I picked up a used one with 80k on it and put it in without having it rebuilt. I don't have a boost gauge but it is still very zippy. A few other things I done to since owning. When I pulled the transfer case I welded the sleeve. AWD still good. I just put a new A.C.condenser in it... A.C. works good. I had replaced the front 2 shocks, oil cooler, radiator, 3 inch catless CNT downpipe. I whacked the resonator. It sounds good. 1 inner tie rod end and 1 outer. It comes with an ebay DICE (which works 50% of the time). I just put in a used clockspring and did a SUM cal. Right now I'm still showing a faulted right front accelerometer sensor to put on soon. Currently I can switch 4C settings when I first start it. Shortly after driving I'll get "Chassis settings service required" which locks it into whatever mode is chosen. I need your honest opinions please.
  8. cwcm - can you tell me where you sourced your rear struts?  I'm having a hard time finding them for my 06V70R.  Thanks very much.

  9. I have very fresh 3Ds on the wagon but recently ruined one. It seems Dunlop has discontinued the 235 width. Can anyone recommend the best match, in handling characteristics, to live life with my 3 remaining 3D tires?
  10. The transmission on my 04 v70R has been dripping fluid for the last few months. I thought it was a faulty seal, but it continued to leak even after replacing the axle seal, the transmission carrier retaining ring, and the retaining clips. I finally discovered the problem: there is an enormous hole in my transmission The 6speed shifts fine, and so it is likely that my tranny was punctured somehow from the outside. I'm probably getting an aluminum welder to patch it up, but how did I get such a big hole in my transmission? Has anyone ever had this problem before? WTF
  11. Correct. Utter B.S. from Canadian Tire - for more info visit this link and scroll down to the 7th page (noted as page 22). You'll find info on the oil level sensor there.
  12. So I got an Ebay ELM327......came with 2.1 Firmware plugging in the power lights face the pedals.... So I got it going and default Dials are Speed and Acceleration worked. My Boost psi and Throttle did not work(have a turbo)???? Got home and looked at this you tube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMYZNal9Wpk Found the other dials and have it setup for 6 on the phone. Have added MAF and Coolant. What do DIALS do you have setup on yours? Now I checked the logged\pending codes and it produced an Ignition Coil code....I just had them replaced....the mechanic did not reset codes? Show historic faults.....had none? Edit: So the Pending\Fault code won't clear? This fault is "not" showing on the dashboard and I understood fixed by replacement of parts? Why won't the fault clear on Torque Lite? Dials update MAF and Fuel level don't work, Coolant and RPM does work. Edit2: Will try this to clear codes....http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1249867 With Torque, try having the car such that the ignition is on, but the engine is not running, then touch the clear code button, then turn the ignition off. This should work to clear the codes. Edit3: The above clears the codes CONFIRMED!
  13. Sounds like BS to me. The light comes on because the level is low. Add oil and the light goes out. The only thing that needs restring is the service interval setting in the DIM. I think they screwed up and are being less than straightforward about it. Something was loose that allowed the oil to leak out i.e. Drain plug, dipstick. How low was it? Did you check before taking it back? Never heard of it going into limp mode because of oil level. Hope the engine isn't damaged.
  14. The other day I went to my local Canadian Tire dealer for an oil change on my 2005 V70R and the next days I had a "oil level low" warning on the display :-( I addition to that, in the afternoon I had lost most power (car runs like it has not gas comping in). I went back to the dealer and this is what they told me:"The oil level warning was there because we did not reset the oil level sensor and because of this, the car goes into a "sick" mode which cause the lost of power". They gave my back my car and did not charge me anything. I thought this was a load of crash and so I figured I would ask the experts at v70r.com. Any thoughts? Regards Alain
  15. I use the DashCommand app with iOS so I can't comment on the dials and such for Torque. It could clear by itself after some use. I usually use Vida/Dice to clear the troublesome codes. Even if I clear misfire codes with DashCommand it takes some number of drive cycles to clear.
  16. Selling my V70R. Here the cl listing. Contact info in the cl listing http://richmond.craigslist.org/cto/d/04-volvo-v70r/6291621974.html
  17. Where are you? Photos? You can email me at neil at lacolombe dot net.
  18. So the PO352 Pending\Fault code won't clear? This fault(Ignition Coil B Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction) is "not" showing on the dashboard and I understood fixed by replacement of parts? Why won't the fault clear on Torque Lite? Dials update MAF and Fuel level don't work, Coolant and RPM does work.

  20. I think your best bet would be to sell it. Try swedespeed or the P2R Facebook pages. There's a P2R classified as well.
  21. I am trying to decide what to do with my 2006 v70R, electric silver/nordkap auto, 150k. Original owner, still drive 37mi to work almost every day, but just got a new wagon, and it is time. Everything works.. Of course could sell it, but a bit of a hassle. Was thinking I would donate it, but the new IRS rules make the value of the contribution so low. New timing belt at 118k, always had synthetic oil, trans fluid changed every 60k, etc. Was in a minor front end accident, and replaced the headlights, grill, hood, rad (no fender damage), new EGR and cleaned up stuff while there. Not sure how much interest there would be in the parts, but there are lots new: just last month put in new Monroe OEM 4C rear shocks, did the fronts 25k ago with new Brembo discs/pads; roof rails new last year; car has OEM electric folding mirrors, and I have a Volvo Sweden factory driving light setup that is plug and play with any 01-07 s60/v70 (brackets, lights, harness, switch but not currently installed). I have the original rims in OK shape, and a set of BBS rims in great condition for winter. Any thoughts?

  23. what is the name of the shop that rebuilt your transmission? what did they do to it? reinforced?different final gear ratio?
  24. I am also curious about that.

  26. I also have an '07. Mine has roughly 185K miles on the clock and recently had the same symptoms. I bit the bullet and replaced the sensor. It was the right move and has returned the car to "normal".
