    A cool idea. I see the kit on Swedespeed. Includes pedals, shifter, etc.

    How does one handle the ECU? I would think it gets confused without the auto trans inputs. Is it possible to get a...

    While you're waiting - I would swap the #3 injector with another injector.

    If the misfire follows that injector - you've found your culprit.

    If not, it's in the coil/spark.

    You'll need some...

    Wait, wait, palliative care only? My goodness! Thatís a tough thing to hear. I wish you the very best. Iím no closer to helping with your car, but sure wish I could help with that diagnosis.

    Your car came with Iridium. A fine wire electrode. That fat electrode is far different.

    And you have a misfire.

    What kind of plugs are those? They don't look like the plugs that are recommended at all.

    Honestly, I would start with a new coil (Bosch, from FCP Euro) for that cylinder, and a set of proper...

    Rear plate visibility will absolutely garner law enforcement attention. I assume you've got a plate mounting bracket to add on next?

    I honestly don't recognize that bolt as being from a Volvo XC... Not to say that my memory is perfect, but I don't recall any Allen-head bolts, and that one has some length to it...

    Missing bolt and metallic noise? You've got a loose part that's hitting something else under rotation. The bolt itself would help, but short of that, time to start looking very, very carefully at...

    Well - I would start with the basics: fuel, compression, spark, timing.

    How's your fuel pressure?

    MAF condition?

    Loose intake pipe or hose?

    Vacuum leak?

    In the future, a Bosch from FCP Euro would be my first choice.

    Timing belt should run about $500. To add the water pump should be another $200. At an independent. Using aftermarket (but good quality, like Aisin, Continental, etc.) parts.

    Are you asking a general question? Or asking for a recommendation for your Volvo? In your car, get the one with the bleed hole, so that trapped air behind the thermostat can be better bled.

    The torque for wheel bolts depends partly on bolt size. Volvo uses a 14mm bolt. Much larger than the Toyota. 5 ft lbs doesn’t matter for wheel bolts. I thought it was 103, whatever, just make certain...

    I think theyíre both that red o ring. The ring fits around the pipe in the photo shown. Itís not loose in the casting as your photo implies.

    I would use throttle body cleaner. Some brake cleaners are just heptane and alcohol. Which would be safe on plastic.

    Some have acetone, which is risky.
