So i have been dealing with the oil cooler lines on my 1998 V70 Awd Turbo for a while. Vehicle has 169,000 miles or so on it now and since i have gotten the car i have put two sets of oil cooler lines on it. I have used the OEM lines each time with new seals etc. Well the second set is now leaking again from the connection at the rubber hose to metal clamping as the usually seem to start leaking at. I dont want to have to do a third set of lines or have these ones rebuilt. I was able to get a hold of the NA motor oil cooler block off plate that it uses instead of having oil coolers. Does anyone know if that would cause a big problem if i decided to put that on instead of new lines? The car is daily driven to work and back about 2 miles on local roads. Never take it on the highway etc, we use the wifes newer mini van for that. I am just worried that iuf i do the block off that the oil might be too high a temperature and burn out the turbo etc. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated?
Hey guys, Rob here.
I figured it was time to go ahead and make a thread since this car has been around the community and finally down here in FL for the last 8 years.
At one point this used to be my daily, now ive moved on to a 2018 S60 and it has become more of a project/fun/love/hate car.
It's had a lot of work and a lot done to it so I guess a little back tracking is warranted.
Originally a 1998 s70 2.3 T5 Automatic.
Around 2010 I added a OBX Exhaust system, 18t, WideBand, ARD blue custom Tune, various other little things.
Around 2013? it went from a 18t to a K24, Manual swap, and RN swap. The RN recieved a rebuilt top/bottom using new parts and seals before install as well as the tranny. (Lol Tranny)
Eariler this year (Feb 2018), I managed to kill the engine coming home from a large volvo meet in Orlando (over 120 volvos so I guess thats large)
(enter the new daily thanks to winter park volvo (chris is my new bestie))
Ordered up an 02 2.4LPT engine since there were no 2.3's in stock anywhere, and it sat in my garage with the s70 for close to 8 months... (Hey at least the detail I got before the meet in Feb lasted 8 months riiiiiggghhhttt?)
After finally getting tired and life back on track from a number of bad events, I sent the car and engine off to Maitland Importers (enter Alan <3 )
A week and $2k later, I got 1 s70 back with almost nothing for me to worry about, new control arms, endlinks, engine professionally installed, etc. etc.
And this catches us up to now. October 2018 :D
