Volvo V70 XC QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I had a standard rectangular air filter for awhile, then put in a K&N air filter but i decided to go with the round Spectre Because in my jeep it game me more power and better gas milage, but now I'm starting to second guess myself because I don't know if it will do anything to the engine or affect the turbo?
It was last replaced three years ago (7/09); since the car has been driven about 29,200 miles.
I can set the clock though it isn't always easy to do. Sometimes it does what it is supposed to when I turn the "stick" and other times it just takes off running forward at full speed no matter which direction I'm turning the control. When I do get it set it may only stay set for a couple of hours, sometimes longer, before it takes off and advances to another setting.
Also, at the same time I have found the heater blower running with the car off and key out. I came out some time later and it was randomly blowing. cycled key on/off to stop. Just started happening.
need specific details on removal/cleaning steps
Sorry I Left This Out Of My Previous Question What Is The Part Number For The AC "S" Hose,"Clamps" And The Filter.
The AC Just Stopped Working Two Days Ago. The Leaking "S" Hose Is At The Very Front Of Car And Difficult To Get To. Supposedly This Leak Has Caused The AC To Stop Functioning For Lack Of Retaining Refrigerant. It Is Also Possible I Need A "Filter". What Are Cost For Parts.
My brakes sqeel, and grind when comming to a stop.
The car idle drops and dies seem to be at idle and low speeds
Very rough idle at light sometimes no power when pressing down gas pedal
road side assist jumped car to start, now ac and clock don't work. checked fuses. all okay.
hadn't driven for two wks. went to enter and can't open any door or hood without access to cabin. A local mechanic suggested key module bad and drained battery. would need to tow it 200 miles to miami for dealership. help?
My volvo bucks when I start it periodically. When it does I turn it off then restart and it usually starts fine. I replaced my thermostat and control module locate there because the computer threw that code. It didn't help.
How much does a new key cost?
the driver window has trouble going up and down when pressing switch also
oil is pouring out looks like main seal and some from cam shafts
Also , intermittently, the car on idle will have a rhythmic pulsing , searching engine and I can see minor movement on the tachometer, but again the car doesn't stall. I am using the highest grade gasoline, have changed all the plugs and coils; air filter is clean.
Also on the cold start, once the car gets going it runs fine....and the starting problem is also intermittent.
Took it to the dealer and they couldn't find anything wrong (no codes, etc). Is this bad gas or water in the tank? This car has 138K miles. Thanks!
last night I rolled the drivers side power window up, and released the switch. The window immediately rolled all the way down on its own, and now will not work. All other windows work fine. Any ideas?
One is resting on fuel line. Do I have to replace all of them?
Happens sporadicaly when brake light warning light goes on and returns when light goes off. Thanks.
The bulbs all check out OK, but there is no power to the fuses for the tail lights. HELP!!!
I have a bad alternator on my '99 V70XC. I want to swap out the alternator, in order to accomplish this I have to relieve the tension on the accessory belt before removing old alternator. What is the procedure to follow before attempting the swap. I've seen a YouTube video which seems to indicate that turning the tensioner counter to it's direction of rotation will relieve the tension, is this correct, if not, which direction works with a Volvo, if at all?
alternator was replaced with new one a week ago for high voltage msg on info in dash also battery light comes on and heater fan will cut on and off seams to happen more on take off over 1000 rpm brake light and abs light will also flash on at times you can cut the engine off and restart and lights go off have confirmed that voltage does go up off 17 volts any idea whats wrong
Is it easy to replace the filter on it's own or do you have to replace pump as well. Car will start but lose power immediately after start. It is off and on problem. Guessing it could be filter. Want to replace filter before the pump to see if that causes the problem...suggestions?
At what mileage do you recommend a serpentine belt be replaced?
it is 1998 volvo v70xc.

Oil found in the drivetrains according to the mechanic. Possible? Please advise. Smoke visible four years ago then disappeared until recent maintenance: radiator, water pump, and timing belt. Help!
I bought my car under 90 days ago from a Honda dealer (who knew NOTHING about Volvos) but I got a good price. I now LOVE it. However, my check engine light came on (P2112 is the generic code - my boyfriend has the diagnositc tool at work but the codes for European cars aren't fully unlocked) and I'm seeing there was a recall on the throttle in 2006 (although some sites show my 2002 was included and others say it's not). It's not stalling but it's very sluggish ("limp home mode"??) and I don't like having lights on when the main reason for the car is to take my kids places. Taking it back to the Honda dealership seems pointless. I'm seeing prices of $900 back in 2005/2006 to fix. I've read on other sites that Volvo's proceedure is/was to clean it a couple of times before looking to replace the part if it is covered by the recall and that the warranty on that part was increased to 10 years/200,000 miles. Where can I find a diagram of the throttle? What is the best thing to use to clean it? Would cleaning it ourselves void this extended warranty if it is indeed covered? Thanks for all help!!!
