    You have to ask, what caused the head gasket to leak after the previous repair. Something was not right. I think the head should at least be checked by a shop for flatness, pretty easy to do. There...

    O2 sensors if not outright defective, can become slow to respond as they age. If have found "lazy" downstream sensors on two cars. Replacement solved the problem, and the vehicle ran better!

    It sounds like you have an aftermarket remote starter setup? If so, I would disconnect that if possible, at least temporarily bypass it, and see if the problem changes.

    You cannot mix the G-05 and the green stuff you have now. I think I would stick with what you have, otherwise you will have to thoroughly flush the system first, before switching to G-05 or Volvo OEM...

    +1 to this!
    Bumper cover really is a 10 minute job! The only way, in my opinion, to do anything with the headlamps.

    Belated Update:

    I replaced both the upstream wideband A/F sensor, and the downstream in-cat O2 sensor with Bosch OE replacements. This seems to have cured the problem, resulting in both an...

    When I did the cam seals, I used the tool sold by IPD. I think it is available cheaper elsewhere, but I needed to get the job done. Also, I used the technique, where a sheet metal or drywall screw is...
