  1. Hello all, maybe someone can help me or give me the instructions. I have 2010 year Volvo XC60, 2.4 diesel, D4 engine, automatic transmission, AWD. Problem is for some reason the car does not have turbo boost anymore. Turbo is working only after the cold start 80 km/h and then turns himself off. If the engine temperature is 90C, ignition needs to be off at least ~ 10 minutes and then turbo works again but only up to 80 km/h. And then turns himself off again. At first I had problem with turbo which leaked oil, the bottom part of the engine was all oily. Second problem was smoke in the interior and under the bonnet. Smoke came from rear part of the engine, not from exhaust! No power loss, car went very well. Local service they changed turbo to the new one (used but factory restored) and installed the new turbo. Oil leak was goen but smoke remained. Smoke came same place, under the bonnet, from rear part of the engine where is the turbo. I went back to the service and they did guarantee works. Uninstalled turbo and sent the turbo to the seller, who checked that everything was okay. Before the repairman started to install turbo again he discovered broken plastic tube / pipe which connects two turbos with each other. And I think this was the problem why engine sometime smoked. Also in the service they washed DPF filter. I have not any idea why because with this car I have not any problems with DPF and it worked before the service very well. Ok turbo and tube were installed, at the beginning car works. Suddenly threre was not turbo boost any more. No fault codes / lights in the dashboard. Diagnostics does not show any fault codes. Car is not smoking and starts up well but after the first approx. 300 meters turbo pressure is gone. MAP sensor is working, EGR is working, turbo valve /controller (flap) is working. No smoke from exhaust. I suspect that maybe they ruined in service DPF filter or DPF filter temperature sensor. I have no idea how they did this task and this was the task which I have not ordered from him. Any ideas?
  2. I am having troubles finding information on the name of a part that I need to replace. It's a part of maintenance to my 1995 Volvo 850 Turbo 2.3L. I want to order it and replace it since its cracked. If I don't know the name of it I cant order it. It's under the fuel rail and plugs (elbow rubber ends)into the manifold then the line extends to the throttle body tree near the vacuum lines. The color of the line is yellow except for the elbow rubber ends. It's about a foot in length. Does anyone know what the exact name for this so I can order it online? I had to put electrical tape on the elbow end of the tree so that's what you see.
  3. Hey volvospeed! I have just recently installed a 20T turbo, 7 cm2 turbo exhaust housing, NA intake and exhaust cams, NA throttle body and air intake, BOSCH EV14 550 cc/min injectors, and an ARD tune. I did this about two days ago now and when I finished putting everything on the car started up fine. I let the car idle for about 5 minutes, and then took the car for a test drive. As a side note I have swapped the automatic transmission for a manual M56H transmission, this was many months ago. But, I took the car for a test drive and when I would accelerate the car would not respond to the throttle then would backfire a few times, and would then repeat a few more times before the car lost all form of power and stalled itself out. I tried turning the car over but it would only crank not start. The next day I went over a few things to see what could be causing the issue. I pulled the spark plugs out and there was not a single hint of too much fuel. I next checked the shredder valve to be sure I was getting fuel and yes I did have fuel pressure. When I installed the cams which are both from an NA car I retarded the exhaust cam to -4 degrees and the intake cam to -6 degrees. ARD recommended, -4 exhaust and -8 intake, but I thought this a bit much. Does anyone know if the cams are the problem? The only other thing I can think of is that the tune is goofed in some way. The car did start and the car idled down to a beautiful purr but after driving it, which I only did 1/4 to 1/2 throttle (hard to remember but i know the car had to adjust parameters before I really lay into it so I did not go heavy), the car backfired then stalled and will not start again. If anyone has any info they would like to share please do.
  4. Hey guys, Recently my car has been shooting me with "reduced engine performance" and "engine system service required" Error codes. Yesterday I tried to replace the throttle body on the car thinking that was the problem. Once I tried driving it the acceleration was still the same very slow, and didn't go past 60 mph. So now I'm taking the other throttle body back since that obviously wasn't the problem. I'm wondering if its and issue with the turbo instead or even the air intake. Has anyone else had these issues? Please let me know.
  5. I have owned this amazing vehicle and as I started researching, I found that these cars make great sleeper cars. No one wants to be taken by a grocery getter. I am starting the build and want to get educated on my car. Vehicle: Grey 92 Volvo 240 Wagon. Engine 2.3L (That's all I know currently) I have began tearing into the engine as it died on me and has been sitting for about a year now. Shop said timing belt was busted and wanted 1,800. I decided to do it myself. I am mechanically inclined but far from a master mechanic. Anyways, I welcome any and all advice. I am going for sleeper, and will update any mods done. I want it running first. As you can see the belt is not busted and since the shop wouldn't return my car for almost 8 months, (Whole other story). I hope more issues have not raised. At almost 200,000 but prior to dying it was running very well. While I am tearing into it I want to fit it with a turbo. Again I can work on stuff, but tricking out, yeah not my thing so first question would be.....Is this motor able to handle a turbo and will I have to get forged guts? Can I keep the same fuel rail? Cam suggestions.......So on. Thanks and I am new to the group.............
  6. Hello, I have a 2003 XC70 with the 2.5l turbo engine. I was driving down the road one day and I heard a bad knocking noise. I figured it was the rod bearings but I decided to just tear up the engine and rebuild it sorta. So I replace piston rings, rod bearings, head gasket, and exhaust gaskets. Problem is with the timing. I did follow the timing marks on the plastic cover for the intake and exhaust cams and the timing mark on the oil pump for the crankshaft and now there’s no knocking noise anymore when I attempt to start it but it doesn’t start. It cranks and act like it wants to start but it doesn’t. Brand new spark plugs and injectors are spraying fuel with a very strong fuel pump. So I came to the conclusion that it was a timing problem. So I went back took the timing belt off and I aligned al the marks but now I turned the cams clockwise such that the little play in the vvt spring would only occur if you turn the cams counterclock-wise. And I tried to start again. Same deal. Acts like it wants to start but it doesn’t. So i took the belt off again and tried it the other way around. Turned the cams ccw until they aligned such that the play in the vvt springs would only occur clockwise this time and sill doesn’t start. So I took off the sensors on the other end of the camshafts and made sure that the slots were flat horizontal with the head but still no luck. I was wondering if any could help me with any advice. I just wanna get this thing started.

  8. Tommy's 855R Adventures

    Well, here goes, this is a very late upload so I hope I haven't forgotten anything or duplicated too many of the photos, either way it should be a fun way for you guys to kill 5-10 minutes in your days tomorrow Enjoy. This is going to be a story/build thread, as my previous thread was deleted or archived with the updates/backups to the website. Three years ago I bought a 1997 850R from Brandon (Volvoskiah) from the NEC. The car was owned by one owner it’s whole life from 14,000 to 198,000 with immaculate records and unbelievable maintenance by a Volvo dealer out in Massachusetts. I flew out on about a weeks’ notice because I knew this wagon would not last, and this had always been the car I had wanted since I got bit by the Volvo bug in 2009! Fast forward three years and two months ago. I had bought a 98 V70 AWD of the Coral variety with a blown motor about a year ago from a couple in Connecticut and had it towed to Brandon and Tom’s shop in Holyoke. They had a 2000R motor that they were going to throw in it when they had some time. This summer everything got put into the Coral and I was going to go pick it up. We started discussing my 855R and how I had been wanting to manual swap it for a while now. We then got the bright idea to RN/M56H swap it since my motor had 235,000 on it. Seeing as I had to go pick up the Coral anyways…. Why not drive the R up and swap it at the same time! :lol: Many parts were bought and plans were set. Time for pictures and shenanigans! We left Friday, my Dad came with to drive the Coral back as I would be driving the R back. He also was the dedicated camera guy all weekend long, so 99% of these photos are credit to him, as my hands were full of grease for three straight days A member and good friend also came with to stretch his S70’s legs before his trip to Vegas, Jay (Modman), and the project really could not have been finished without him. 3am! Meeting Jay at the rest stop. Jay! Creepin’ Last gas station stop being automagic for the rest of its’ life. My pops drove for a while and I took the liberty to take some scenery and rolling pictures. Mostly through New York and slightly into Massachusetts. Enjoy. Okay so, obviously I am not a professional photographer so I feel some turned out decent, but I uploaded all of them just cause of simplicity Rolling shots of Jay’s car, I hope at least one turned out, you need one in your sig my friend Award for most ugly body-kit Does anyone smell Salmon? What a cool Mercury. Lee, this is for you The guy was really cool and we talked while driving and said he liked the wagon Father Klopcic! Arrived in Holyoke! Brandon and Dillon! Brandon’s’ family’s chariots Mike this is for you Friday night we brought all the parts and the wagon to the shop in Holyoke. Everything was loaded into the garage and we went and rested up till our 8am wake-up time! Day 1: Saturday Removal of hood, so as to save my head from hitting it all the time Tearing into it. Goodbye 234,000 2.3L, you have been great to me, stay alive in Brandon’s T5M Jay, Brandon and I discussing RN swaps and how much Jay realizes he needs an RN motor Well help beautiful! Not the car, I’m talking about you Tom Tom towed the XC with his newly swapped R, which is awesome by the way. He had stripped the entire engine except for the engine mounts and the sub frame so it was an easy pull on this one. Started to strip the ’01 motor of its accessory stuff, and replacing it with my 97 stuff. I promise I did stuff while they were pulling off the other stuff. This is the piece that messed up on us 50 miles into the drive home. RMS is a moody oh yeah!. New RMS will be going in on the 18th of October. But we did replace it with a new unit and I think it may have folded in on itself but I will post an update on this come the time the engine comes out just a month after it got put in! So many Volvo’s! So this concluded Saturday, it was incredibly hot all day and it started to rain around 9pm so we headed back and ate a delicious dinner with chili as the main dish, which was absolutely amazing, made by Brandon’s mother. We also got to sit and talk about the day and the plan of action for tomorrow, seeing as we needed to get it done! Off to bed and onto 8am tomorrow morning for the final stretch! Day 2: Sunday Didn’t get any pictures of pulling the old out of my wagon cause my Dad was going to get breakfast for errbody. But Tom and I manhandled it like champs and got it out. Here is how the 2.4L sat when we got the trans mated up and everything ready for the accessories to go on! Here is an issue we ran into. This I'm dumb exhaust stud broke in the head as we were pulling off the old exhaust manifold. My Dad worked on it for about 4 hours on Sunday trying everything we could, but to no avail, so when we put the exhaust gaskets on we slathered the entire backside with an exhaust manifold gasket sealant, so far it has held up great and no leaks. I’ll eventually get a new head in the future I’m sure so that’ll solve that problem when I swap it, but it’s working great right now Jay taking a well-deserved break, he put pretty much all the accessory brackets and associated parts on the new motor… what a guy! Brandon grabbing a seat in the bay Getting ready to go in! Yay kneeling in the bay. Now I know everyone has seen an engine being lifted into a Volvo before, but damn this took precision and lots of patience with having to have the door open, to closing it, to opening it part of the way, to closing it again! But she’s in. This is my favorite picture of the entire weekend. We still had everything to button up but it was in and was such a feeling of accomplishment. This really captures what a great bunch of guys you all are. I cannot thank you enough for everything you did to help all weekend, you are all truly great friends After that Jay had to leave due to work the next day at 3pm so we had to say goodbye and he started the 14 hour journey home!

    K-PAX Racing was represented by Robert Thorne driving the #80 K-PAX Racing C30 GT-R for the very first time. Friday was spent primarily getting accustomed to the new car as well as working on set-up in order to optimize the car to the standardized series tire. “We came here this weekend with the car setup according to how we had run it in the World Challenge series last year, but we quickly learned that the tires used in the USTCC required a very different setup in order to create a well-balanced car”, commented Team Manager, Bob Raub.
