  1. Last week
  2. +300,000. This engine? 10,000.
  3. Has anyone installed a Volvo trailer harness on an '04 that plugs in to a 7 pin trailer connector? If so, what part number? What brake controller did you use? Thanks!
  4. Earlier
  5. It is with a heavy heart that I accept responsibility for failure to properly reassemble and properly set up the cam sprockets after cam seal replacement resulting in bent valves on my highly enjoyable Gray wagon. I've had the car for the last 50,000 miles and recently replaced tires. seals, etc, in anticipation of another 50,000 miles and passing it on to my son who just became a driver. I'm sure that FCP will be sorry to hear this also, but I'm past the point of repairing it. If a fellow V70R fan is interested in this car I would be happy to pass it on. Let me take some pics and upload, and we can talk. This forum has been a great help in the past, much appreciation...

  7. I check on it every now and then but there are barely any new posts. I kinda wonder if a P80 R group on facebook would get more traffic.
  8. OMG......Mechanic went to town on my car and my hip pocket :\ So he ended up replacing the Alternator belt, VVT front seal, blank plate(?), Cam seals, Cambelt KIT(current was not OEM and only done 100K...said it showed wear marks only had 30K left so replace at same time?). Also the Breather box kit was replaced as he said it was blocked? Intake manifold gasket and a second hand temp sensor(seem to replace this every second service and no indication to me faulty as he claims? Labour was $605AU Total $1480....half the value of the car?
  9. Hi Everyone, Hope you are well! An update to yesterday's updates. RE: Lunch: Peter sent along the following message: "I confirmed that Bob C. is bringing and cooking hamburgers and hot dogs. He is bringing everything for that, even some potato salad. Heino is bringing a flat of plain water. Only other thing we need are soda and ice chests to keep everything cold. Chips and dip would be fun also." Shout out to Bob C. and Heino! Please be sure to thank them on Saturday! And, if you plan on bringing an item to share, please let us know by replying to this message or Contacting Us: http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Home/contactus --- RE: Planning Meeting: The Planning Meeting will follow the BBQ lunch at EuroTech.

  10. Hi Everyone, Hope you are all well! This Saturday's forecast is currently mostly sunny and 70 degrees. A fantastic day to bring your Volvo, camera, and ideas to the 11th Annual EuroTech Tech Session, Lunch, & Planning Meeting! --- The EuroTech Tech Session / Cars & Coffee runs from 10:00A to 1:00P and is a great opportunity to put your Volvo on the lift and check things out before Davis! The Lunch & Planning Meeting are traditionally held at Lots of Luck Restaurant and runs from 1:00P to 3:00P. However, there may be a change to the Lunch and Planning Meeting plans. Details are provided below. ---------- Tech Session Updates: 1. Donut Volunteers have been found for the EuroTech Tech Session / Cars & Coffee Event! Please be sure to thank them on Saturday! Shout out to our event volunteers: Frank and Glenn! Thank you for your generous donut donations! 2. Volunteers are still needed to purchase / donate coffee for the EuroTech Tech Session / Cars & Coffee event. If interested, please let us know! Please, reply to this message or Contact Us: http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Home/contactus ---------- Lunch Updates: Peter has informed us that someone has expressed interest in hosting a BBQ for lunch at EuroTech following the Tech Session / Cars & Coffee. At this point, we do not know who this person is or what they will be making and/or providing. (If you are this person, please get in touch!) To be on the safe side, please assume this will be a pot-luck style BBQ and consider bringing something to share along with a plate, utensils, and a chair. If you prefer to shop local, there are a number of grocery stores in the area. For more information, please check out this Google Map: https://www.google.com/maps/search/grocery+store/@38.5921428,-121.2996239,14z --- In the event that the person planning the BBQ cannot make the event, we will attempt to move lunch to our traditional lunch spot, the Lots of Luck Restaurant. Please note, however, that we have not made a reservation this year due to the planned BBQ, so we will need to ask if they can accommodate our group. If Lots of Luck Restaurant is unable to accommodate our group, or you cannot attend the Planning Meeting and prefer to get some food to go, there are also a number of restaurants and cafes in the area. For more information, please check out this Google Map: https://www.google.com/maps/search/restaurant+or+cafe/@38.5922073,-121.2996239,14z/data=!3m1!4b1 ---------- Planning Meeting Updates: In the event the BBQ lunch is hosted at EuroTech, we will also hold the Planning Meeting at EuroTech. Please consider bringing a chair if you would like to participate. In the event the BBQ lunch is canceled, we will attempt to move the Planning Meeting to the Lots of Luck Restaurant, but may need to postpone the meeting if they are unable to accommodate our group. --- Looking forward to seeing you all on March 30th! Take care, volvie!
  11. First guy I go to want $800AU for after market replacement and claims the Sunroof needs to be removed....hence the cost?
  12. So after last service I noticed that oil on the garage floor via mechanic, coming from CAM Seal area. So now going in for that to be checked and replaced and at the same time the Alternator belt will be replaced as it has "cracks" appearing that means it is wearing out. Seams the parts are cheap, it's the labour that is going to cost as involves locking the engine.....blah blah
  13. maybe he didn't really want to sell it.

  15. Why do people post such horrible ads? Do they not want to sell their cars? Even when my wife women of questionable morals. about all my cars, I post up a decent ad to at least tell her I tried and no one wants it lol. stuff, at least post photos, location and transmission. Just think about when you bought this, what did you want to know and see? I never login and post for years since I sold my 05vr. Yet I'm subbed to for sale because I'm always looking for another vr. I loved my wagon. Come on with 3 post counts at least make them decent ones.

  18. alt belt work is stupid expensive done at the shop at least.
  19. So the Right Bearing was "Cactus"...... Original part was $451.30....aftermarket $120 Second one (Rear) on S40 car the mechanic had done in 30 years of servicing Volvo cars. Back to silent driving again! But he mentioned the "Alternator belt" was making a noise and should be replaced sooner than later.......said it is a special order for different car series????
  20. So the upholstery where you open the sun visor has come loose and hanging...... Anyone had this and fixed it? Does it require all to be removed in area and reapplied?
