  1. I have seen people drive with a leaking check valve for years. You will still experience the hard start unless you fix it. I have not personally done this, but I know you can splice a check valve into the fuel line. Might be worth looking into.
  2. The car should maintain 3 bar for at least 20 minutes after engine shut off. The one way check valve in your fuel pump has failed.
  3. The non spring loaded hubs can also develop the same excessive play. I'm unsure if the hubs can be swapped, never tried it. As long as it isn't leaking oil I would let it ride. When they develop too much play the hubs will rotate out of the cam seal and make an intermittent oil leak.
  4. How long was the car not running before the gauge when to 0?
  5. Very likely fuel pressure related. Hook up a gauge to the fuel rail and check pressure 20 minutes after shutting off engine. Should be no less than 3 bar. If so your fuel pump check valve is faulty (very common)
  6. Installed a GROM audio unit in the 07 XC70. FM radio was literally killing me. Also did another ozone treatment to try and remove the smoke smell.
  7. What fault codes are stored in the vehicle?
  8. I'm not aware of any way to defeat the chime unless the car thinks the top is fully open/closed. Do you have VIDA to try and erase any codes that are stored?
  9. We probably need to start with the basics here. Do we have any air leaks? How is our fuel pressure? Any history on the fuel pump relay?
  10. I have used Bosch Quiet Cast pads front and rear on my wife's XC60 with great success. Very little dust and no noise. Not really used for anything other than a daily commuter.
  11. You definitely need to listen to Far Beyond Driven if you like those.
  12. You must go N/A to N/A or turbo to turbo, that is the only requirement. You can interchange 5 and 6 cylinder as long as you follow the previously mentioned rules.
  13. You need to put on OEM suspension parts, end of story.
