    No worries. I recall you tested the cooling system and found the heater core its weak link, then replaced it. I appreciate the tip about Nissan radiators.

    Good Aftermarket Radiator for '98 ?

    A few weeks ago, on a warmer day, the car's temperature gauge registered two or three ticks above midline during a 30 mile drive. At home I checked the coolant level and found it well below normal. ...
  3. C70 Headlamps Installed

    New C70 headlamps installed today. They do make the fluted corner lights look like toenails with a fungus, so I will probably budget for a set of clear corner lights sometime this year.

    But what...

    24.9 mpg average as of today, but a lot of long, country road driving over the past few days in the '98. Usually the trip computer has it at about 19.something mpg. I use mid-grade fuel as the...

    After a long round-trip to the North around Christmastime and many miles of rural Tennessee driving, the CD-player in my 98's radio has failed - stutters, etc. What is a reasonable replacement unit...

    I bought one of the California Car Cover products and it appears to be a quality item. Understand what you mean by kids scratching things. We've got about 17 oak trees in our yard - the ropey...

    Green '98 in Rural Tennessee

    Yesterday was able to carefully drive my 1998 Cross Country up a steep, winding, rainslick, and deeply rutted dirt/gravel track to make contact with a man on my caseload. Very pleased with the...

    Car Covers?

    Car covers - do any of you use them, and, if so, how well do they protect your car from drain-hole clogging pollen and leaves, as well as other occasionally falling hazards? Any recommendations as...
  13. WTB - Cargo Cover for 1998 Cross Country

    As the subject line says, I want to buy a cargo cover for my 1998 Cross Country. No interest here in tinting the rearmost, or any, of the car's windows. Although a blanket worked fine on our recent...

    I ordered a pair of headlamps today; if I remember, I will post a photo of the car after they're installed.

    Those old people are probably KGB holdovers who formerly manned a Soviet listening post. You didn't drink the wine, did you?

    IPD's cheaper per unit by about $40.00 than Tasco. Still pretty expensive, so I'll have to live with the goofy, but functional, presentation awhile.

    They do look terrific. IPD sells them and states they are a "direct replacement upgrade" for all 1998 to 2000 V70 cars, so should require no modifications to fit? As to the corner lights, I'll have...

    I recently purchased a very good example of the subject-line referenced vehicle from JRL (the green '98 listed in the forum's classifieds). The headlamps, however, and the left in particular,...

    Thank you, Jim. I'd also called them earlier in the week. I can get a new one for $265. Old plaid wool blanket from Spain will do the trick for tomorrow's trip to the frozen North.

    Color won't match, but I need a cargo cover that will fit in a '98 XC. Function trumps color for my purposes.
