Thank You Volvospeed

Recommended Posts

Thank you for all your help. As a newbie mechanic I have come to depend on these forums as a great source on the internet for guidance and instruction.Volvospeed is one of my favorite places to visit, that's due to the active and helpful community found here. I hope to be as helpful to others as the internet's Volvo population has been to me, and continue to receive good advice and encouragement as I move down the road to a million plus miles in my T5. I will never be above correction, and will always jump in to offer insight whenever I think I can help. I imagine we are all in a similar situation, just doing the good human thing by helping our fellow travelers.thanks for reading this far. My current daily driver is a 1999 Volvo S70 T5 automatic with 180,000 miles, severe oil leaks, loss of power, Christmas tree dash lights, occasional electrical accessory glitches, an embarrassing alarm that sounds like a goat with a bad chest cold, possibly the wrong intake manifold, unknown history prior to me and severe neglect since I've had it as it was the only car for my young family and I couldn't afford to take it to a shop or have it in a million pieces in my driveway. My goal is to get at least stage zero(maybe three) and as I said earlier squeeze a million exhilarating miles out of this 2.4L L5 DOHC 20V engine in it's beautiful silver body. My questions will always have pictures and most likely be tldr, and I will always patiently await answers. Thank you for existing volvospeed, and thank you for accepting me.

Lmao, I'm real quick to put the key in the door when it goes off... Wait until I get these pictures up. I've been sopping oil out of my spark plug wells all evening. Smh, almost embarrassing except for the fact it might prove helpful to someone else.
