  1. Keaton85 added an answer to a question: Bad Oil Turbo Seals?   

    No it will not, plus that is extremely uncommon to have a clogged cat or exhaust.

    If the OP really thinking it's the turbo just replace it. They are cheap and easy to replace.

    PCV, turbos are very rare to fail.

    Replace the cap and rotor just to rule that out. You won't see it but there will be little metal trails that short out all over the place.

    Most of the time you can take the relay apart and actually see if there are any bad area to the circuit. It will be a blown cap or a sagging resistor.

    A fuel pressure gauge might help, rent one

    Lifters are never the cause.

    O-rings like stated above
    Incorrect cam cover sealant
    A junk oil filter with no drain back valve
    Oil type plays a little part but not much

    80% of the time it's the cat?

    Sorry but I've been around these vehicles for going on 10yrs and never seen a bad one. I've seen the code plenty of times but I never once had to replace the cat. Also turbo seals? Even that screams PCV issues.

    So, if we are tossing around numbers. 99% of the time it is not the cat.

    Highly unlikely it's the cat

    Just to rule it out I would toss in a rear O2 and add spacers. That would take care of it even if the cat was bad. Still extremely rare...

    I have a even simpler method!

    - Take bracket in one hand
    - walk over to trash
    - let go of bracket into trash

    Done!

    The only wear you have to worry about is the idler bearings. When does AC get in the way?

    I guess it depends on climate, AC is amazing in the winter months for me.

    Why bother deleting? How will it benefit anything?

    In my opinion, there are a lot of other failure points that you should be addressing. inspect the cooling system but this is along the lines of if it aint broke, dont fix it.

    ATF flush
    Plugs
    test wires
    look under cap and rotor
    Check PCV system (replace white flame trap!)
    Pull CEL codes
    Timing belt (most important!)
    oil leaks
    Delete SAS if it has that

  12. Keaton85 added an answer to a question: V70R Value?   

    Ohh I am considering the time, as I personally don't want to do the PCV system over again. With the stock PCV hoses, they are pure junk. I actually us copper tubing for the large tube and fuel line for the vac line. Correct on the trap, most times it's much less of a pain to just swap out a new one. But $200 bucks? I would be broke if I spent that on the amount of these systems ive replaced in my life time.

    As for the timing belt, like I said, those dayco rollers are identical to what you pull out of your blue box. Again, water pump is the only unknown for me in that kit, but I usually get the rollers and belt only kit and buy the pump seperate, either GMB, or HEPU.

    To the OP, your dealer must have thought the PCV system blockage was turbo seals, as these turbos are near bullet proof. Ive heard of and seen only a very few of them going bad. 300K to 400K miles with no issues with the TD04s. 99% of the time it's diagnosed incorrectly because the tech doesnt understand crankcase pressure.

    Something wrong with your current coolant and hoses? Also why go down on temp?

    That kit has INA rollers, which are the same that Volvo uses. Unknown pump, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was Volvo as well with the lettering machined off.

    PCV can be done for cheap to if you clean the trap and make your own hoses. If you plan the Volvo blue box game, it gets expensive for no reason.

    Nope, no piston damage.

    One tip that isn't easily found online is to leave the exhaust manifold and turbo in place when doing the head. Other then that, just look around for guides and info on the process. Only a torque wrench is needed for "special" tools. Make a degree wheel out of cardboard or whatever else.
