Question Asked: My 1996 Volvo 850 GLT Sedan no turbo (AKA Sweet Roll) was in an accident.

The impact occurred on the driver's side front fender. Most of the impact was absorbed by the wheel, which resulted in the following parts being replaced. 1. engine cradle 2. left front wheel 3. left front strut 4. left lower control arm 5. car was aligned 6. the drivers window had a broken track but their wasn't any visible damage to the door 7. the body damage was contained to the front bumper, cowl and fender but remember the brunt of the impact was on the wheel.
My A/C was blowing ice cold air before all this happened, a mechanic reported no visible leak other than a low side, hose seal by the evaporator. I was told this was an O-ring (is it?) I was told this was located on the passenger side of the car (opposite the point of impact) I was told the insurance would not pay for this maintenance. There is also an antenna that quit working after the crash which the insurance company would not pay for. The mechanic said it was a worn or broken worm gear. When it comes to taking my money the insurance company has no problem, it's the paying out part they have a problem with. Sweet Roll has 63000 miles on her.
Before the accident the air conditioning was working fine and so was the antenna .
Question Asked: Turbo Control Valve , Engine Control Module

I think I need a Turbo Control Valve = TCV and hoses for my 2001 Volvo V70 2.4 front wheel drive. I am not getting power when pressing on the gas pedal and it wants to stall. The car runs fine when first started but after it warms up and it is shut off it will stall when restarted and their is a lack of power (sometimes). If I keep the RPM's up by depressing the gas it will run (I have not tried to drive it this way). I already replaced the Mass Air Sensor and that did not help. I had my local Volvo dealership run a diagnostic test and they found "communications faults" with the ABS control module , the central electronic module , the Engine Control Module = ECM (Volvo wanted to replace the ECM wiring harness, they said they found some corroded terminals) and they wanted to replace the turbo control valve.
I was going to start with replacing the turbo control valve and do it myself.
1. Do these problems sound like a turbo control valve gone bad? or a plugged or worn out hose on the TCV or both?
2. Do you have a tutorial on the TCV replacement and it''s hoses I can view?
3. Do you have a tutorial on replacing the ECM wiring harness ?
Thank you for all of your help.

Try shimming the compressor with a bread bag clip. Look it up on line first to get the particulars.
