    Other than the noises (electric motors or solenoids) immediately after the car is turned off; no. I decided to leave the car sit un-used for the past 2-3 days; checking the voltage without the...

    Could Have Been Worse

    Thanks for your experiences. It's a shame that a 9 year pro-rated battery will not fail enough to have it replaced. Canadian Tire did the load test and only claimed the battery's cold-cranking...

    Battery Drains After 2-3 Days

    Naturally when we needed the XC70 today, it failed to crank over and start once more. Since there was an appointment to attend, the trusty, reliable (wife hated) Geely Mk 2 had to come again to the...

    False Alarm - Note Symptoms

    Initial symptom was car would not start; numerous diagnostic messages on display, key fob could not even be removed. Then instrument display went "dark". OMG, first instinct was not to panic. With...

    2008 Alternator Amperage

    I'm having charging issues with my 2008 3.2 engine. Before I remove the old alternator, is there a VIN code or label telling me what is the amperage. I suspect it's 150 amps. I realize the...

    It's been almost 2 years since I did the job, but I think the rubber sleeve was pulled upwards to expose the joint. It's kind of a stupid, un-intuitive FORD system, so past Volvo repair experience...

    Sorry to read about this catastrophe. I did the whole job myself a year ago, replacing the weak FoMoCo parts - water pump, steering pump, serpentine belt, both idlers and the high pressure power...

    I am about to replace the "cheap" FoMoCo hose(s) that lead from the washer pump to the left headlight washer (another thread?). Last year, I was able to access the washer pump without taking off the...
  12. Big Job & Caveats

    Had mine done 2-3 years ago on my 2008 XC70. I think the bottom alloy plug had started to leak, possibly due to winter salt corrosion in Ontario? I opted for a non-Volvo garage and that was a...

    Same here too, but naturally the dealership was reluctant to accept my diagnosis. I said it sounded like a 140 or 240 series heater motor, where the motor shaft would rust, overheat the oiless...
  14. Been There Too

    Prior to buying an OBD-II tester, expecting much worse I had to pay a dealership an hour's labour to identify the same problem. In my case there was enough wire to resolder the chewed through wire...

    You'll need to use an OBD-II code reader to discover what component(s) activated the check engine light. Often these codes will issue a generic description, not specific to Volvo components, but use...

    PM Issues

    Sorry - resolved: in my profile, I noticed that you have to click the save feature, but IMHO, there should be a more obvious confirmation message the "save" feature should be default - maybe it...

    My definition of "position light" is what we called "parking lights" in Canada. Before daytime running lights, this was the centre position on the light switch between off and on positions. The...

    Fixed Itself

    To my surprise and pleasure the message has disappeared; almost as if it repaired itself. I suspect with the car on a set of ramps for 3 weeks, the sensor remained open and after a day in its normal...

    After re-installing the battery box following the water pump install, I receive the message "Engine hood open", when the hood is closed and secure. Everything works as it did before my other...

  22. Timing Chain & Other Service

    You did not specify the XC70 mileage. My dealership said the chain is replaced around 125,000 miles or 200,000 km. Hope mine never needs this replaced.

    I'm in the process of replacing my water...

    Congratulations on your new purchase. I'd suggest you ask to see a dealer copy of the original sales contract or the vehicle's history - I believe all dealerships would have access to this data.

    T9614047 Tool Found

    After searching with Google, I did locate a diagram of the Volvo tool needed to separate the hose. I strongly believe there is a generic tool, made by Lisle 3700 as used on many FoMoCo components;...
