    Thank you. I actually did post on swedespeed too, but got most replies on https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/,

  2. v70 manual - reverse R is gone after accidentally engaging instead of 4th?

    I know it's not about the XC70, but when I had XC, I received great advises here. So may be someone knows.

    Yesterday accidentally, instead of 4th gear, at about 35mph, the car was put into...

    ah, just checked back on this thread.

    The end of my story - I avoided using the reverse. One day I replaced tires and then the transmission blew on my way back from the shop. Towed back home and...

    v70 t5 snow driving experience

    In a few words - it sucks when it comes to climb a slope, which are plenty in High Sierra.

    I did not have snow tires, for the record.

    I got stuck on the road, packed snow surface, can't tell...

    cabin air freshener/deodorant

    Hi,
    I am not really looking forward into igniting a religious war over here; unbiased answers preferred.

    As few of the regular gang over here might notice, I replaced (well, added to so far) my...
  8. thanks!

    thanks!
  9. quick test someone? Can you start the car while in the neutral gear?

    Could someone test really quick if the car starts when the gear selector is on neutral? Mine does. I am trying to figure out if it's a gear neutral position switch failure.
    Thanks in advance!

    I swapped rear view mirrors.

    keyless entry/remote got self-reprogrammed

    I was swapping rear view mirror from my 01' xc to 01' t5 tonight. When all was done and the negative wires were back on, I wondered which key belonged to the XC, so I pressed the yellow button to...

    JMielke,
    Jack up the car, put on jack stands, turn front wheels: if bevel/angle gear flange won't turn, then the prop shaft was removed because of bevel gear failure.

    Hey The Fixer,
    How things so far with the rebuilt turbo?
    Did you put it yourself (any tips? how long?) or in a a shop (how many hours of labor?)?

    Ok,
    I laid down today under her. Turbo indeed is leaking badly. I cleaned it up to measure how bad it actually is in a week from today. So did with CAC (charge air cooler) hose. Other than turbo -...

  19. (+youtube vids): Oil leaking from the Charge Air Cooler hose - turbo problem?

    I am watching my recently purchased 2001 t5. There is oil leaking somehow at where the hose, coming from the throttle body, is clamped to the charge air cooler (I thought initially it was radiator)....

    I figured that out with a parking break: must be a better design, because my BMW rolls on the parking break. So a gear and a brake do the trick.
