Volvo5.0's Activity

  1. Volvo5.0 added an answer to a question drive cycle for rediness   

    Best option is a manual ECU or manual tune, but here is the Link that Fran9690 is referring  to.

  2. Volvo5.0 added an answer to a question P0014   

    No need to advance any cam to match the other cam. You might be over thinking it. Line up the marks on the gears with the marks on the cover. That's all there is to it. Never ever had to lock the cams just to replace a t-belt. Other than maybe a B230F, these are probably one of the easiest t-belts to replace...

    No real difference between a P80 car with VVT and a P2 car with VVT, except the newer P2's have dual VVT. Routine T-belt procedure is the same and can be done a couple of ways. I find either way about the same, although some techs prefer #2
    1) The motor can be turned clockwise by hand until you reach TDC (marks lined up) and then take the belt off. Doing it this way, yes, the VVT hub (on the exhaust cam) will turn back ccw about 2 teeth when the belt is removed. When installing the belt you will need to turn the hub cw ( yes, it's spring loaded) by hand until the mark lines up before installing the belt.
    2) The motor can be turned clockwise past TDC and then backed up until the timing marks are aligned. This way when the belt is removed the VVT hub (on the exhaust cam) is no longer spring loaded and will not move. Simply line up all of the marks and install the belt.
    If the VVT hub has never been removed from the cam, ALL you care about when changing a t-belt is the timing marks, not the cams position. The cam will not "shift" inside the hub.
    With that said, I always check to make sure that the timing marks were lined up properly BEFORE removing the old belt. If some butcher has worked on the car before me, and taken the hub off at some point, then the timing could be whacked. Only thing to do in that case is start from the beginning and that would require locking the cams...

    Were you just doing a routine t-belt or did you remove the hub for some reason? Can't say I've ever seen a cam shift inside the VVT hub unless the center bolt was loosened. No need to lock the cams from the rear for a routine t-belt change.

    Did you check for codes in the ignition system (A6 socket) also?

  7. Volvo5.0 added an answer to a question throttle becomes completely non-responsive when brakes applied   

    Sounds like a problem in the ETM, wiring, or pedal position sensor. Probably not the pedal sensor, since you already replaced that. One of the tests to see if an ETM fault is active or intermittent is to press the gas pedal at the same time as the brake pedal. If there is an active fault the gas pedal is ignored when braking.
    Funny that after calling a few dealers, no one was able to answer that for you. Although that system hasn't been used for quite awhile.

  8. Volvo5.0 added an answer to a question fan won't turn on   

    If the temp gauge is staying in the middle, you may not even have a problem with your cooling fan. The ECU sends a ground (only when needed) to energize the relay. One of the center plug wires is for low fan speed and the other is for high speed. Drive the car and keep an eye on the gauge. If it stays in the middle, don't sweat it.

  10. Volvo5.0 added an answer to a question fan won't turn on   

    Did you do as TryingBe suggested and ground the wires on the middle plug, one at a time? Or did you just take the relay apart and push the coils shut?
    And the AC doesn't need to be connected for the cooling fan to operate...
