    ... I'm only allowed to vote once. :(

    The new tranny has a few thousand miles on it and is doing well. The fluid is looking a bit darker than it should and the shifting is perfect unless it is...

    I'm going to use JB weld tonight on it. What I've researched so far for a successful fix is to:

    1. Clean the area well
    2. Scuff the area (wire brush or sand paper)
    3. Apply JB to cold plastic...

    Might as well try that first. I guess I don't know exactly where to apply it. I can't see any cracks in the plastic.

    coolant leak at upper hose connection

    I Have had a slow coolant leak for several months now. a few months ago it needed topped up about a few ounces/month. Now, it's about every couple of days. I thought I had the problem solved as I...

    It's stubborn. I take a flat head screwdriver and push down on the tab with the blunt side of the head. That should give you enough pressure to slide it out.

    Mine has always been up-to-date since I've had, so I can't speak from experience but I believe updates are complementary when you bring it in for something else. Just have that do an alignment or oil...

    Look at my signature. It's a bit of a gamble with a rebuilt, even when Volvo does it. But, there's a warranty that goes along with a rebuild. Volvo rebuild is one year. In my case the problem with...

    It baffles me that such an over engineered car such as these left out a light beneath the hood.

    Interesting, Astro. It surprised me that you would say it isn't a job for a dealer. When I recently got my rebuilt transmission at the dealer, they didn't do any of the rebuilding work at the shop....

    Wow, $5k is steep. I'd appreciate your photos and walk through in another thread or in the repair database.

    It's the operating system for iPods and iPhones. It was updated a few days ago

    Pa11-vol and ios7

    I seemed to have lost automatic play when I plug in my iphone and the steering wheel track controls no longer work ever since the ios7 update. Anybody else experiencing this?

    I'd say an 01 at that price has problems, most likely transmission problems. Around here, the only 01's near that price have little to no history available for the car. There are still many 01's in...

    I thought so, but she was awfully persuasive.

    That makes sense for the memory, but everyone I go over a bump or close the door it gets jostled a bit and the system notes the difference and tries...

    That helps a little. After seeing that the mirror is sold without the plate that is gets connected to the back of the mirror means that the piece I have that's broken is considered part of the...
  16. Driver's side mirror, attachment to glass broken

    My mirror is loose (the glass part). It looks like the middle piece on the inside that attaches to the mirror is cracked and some plastic is missing. I haven't removed the mirror and the electronic...

    I like the black ones! Good look with the red. Do you have a aftermarket tint on your XC?


    As for me, I got my XC back–finally. It's on it's third tranny now. It moves through the gears like...

    "Internal transmission failure" is the diagnosis. Luckily, the transmission is being replaced at no cost to me covered by Volvo NA. The warranty didnt follow me since I bought it after the new tranny...

    I won't tell you to buy or walk, but I'll tell you my story if it helps your decision. I might seem bitter, but I love the car believe it or not. I bought a 2001 xc70 two months ago at 122k mi. In...

    Wow. Didn't expect this. So the greasy oil pan led to finding grease spatter marks which led to the car not moving a few hours later. It's all unrelated. The dealer said the transmission is at fault...

    I asked her the same thing. She said the engine revved but wouldn't move. She said it felt like it was in N no matter which was selected. She doesn't remember if it felt like the transmission was...

    I chickened out and had it towed to the dealer :( it's my only car, I don't have a torque wrench yet, and just feel a little ill-equipped and need it done fast. I'm also hoping to negotiate...

    Well, I assume it's the right axle, given what we saw at the beginning of this thread. It seems likely. I'll have it towed here and fix it myself.

    Second car you say? I wish. Urban living and...

    Thanks for the encouragement VTL. My wife is also far along in her pregnancy, hence the extra irritation. To be honest, an axle replacement intimidates me. I was thinking of having it towed to the...

    Aahhh! I've about had it with this car. My wife is stranded and now has to get it towed. Won't move. I'm guessing the axle went out. Crazy timing.

    So far in 2 months, I've had the CEL twice...
