  3. Waiting on a couple things before I can reassemble the HVAC box. In the meantime I picked up a 1000lb hydraulic table from HF and used that to drop the complete engine from the car rather than using a hoist. It may have taken a little bit longer, but the e30 is similar to the 850 in that the engine needs to come out at a pretty extreme angle. I was able to avoid the hassle and frustrations of using a hoist at least. I have some areas of rust that need addressed in the engine bay and am taking this opportunity to strip the entire engine bay and respray it. Stripping off all the seam sealer. Patch one rust spot and then other areas are just surface so those will be ground down and spray with rust encapsulator.

  9. I highly recommend it. We don't advertise it either, it is all word of mouth be there is a waiting list to get in. The teens mostly don't want to go because it is getting up early on a weekend, but as soon as they are out driving they love it.

  10. Yeah, I ended up just replacing the entire assemblies vs just doing the strut mounts. It's pretty funny how much of a drastic change in driving feel from changing the front end out. Feels so much better now. Considering the guy I bought it from, "did" all this stuff already Honestly, over the P80 horns, I like them much much better. Much louder and cosmetically nicer. I bought a set to put on the V70, but I did not realize how loud the P2 horns already were O.o Keep an eye on them as they frequently drop to $20 on Amazon. --- Drove the S70 for about 45 minutes Sunday, topped out around 95-100~ without issues. Still had to jump it so its back on the charger, last night it turned over on its own a couple times, but just incase I put it back on the tinder last night. Battery is holding at 12.6v so I unplugged it and will check it again when I get home. Unfortunately I now have a issue that was not present before driving. While Idling it will suddenly lean out and almost stall. Had a code for IAC (Thinking that was for the vac line that popped off after driving, discovered upon moving it from parking spot to garage and it stalling/dying on the way). Luckily as far as P80's go, I have a decent stash of parts still, and can throw some wrenches at it. 2 weeks till body shop so need to get it rolling fine again. Going to do a tune up maybe this weekend, have a new PCV (even though the old one is only 2k miles old), plugs, oil change, etc. Kinda excited to be about to jump back into the S70, even with gas prices hitting 3.90

  11. That isn't true, but 99% are guests. I flagged an account as a spammer earlier in the week. I do it maybe twice a month at the most though because it is harder to create an account.

  12. Confirmation from Aaron that it was overlapping RAM addressing between the VVT controls and the misfire detection routine in the auto bin. Detection turned off, but also code has been fixed to remedy the issue.

  14. Thank you! It worked really well to remove the front suspension instead of trying to balance the knuckle on a jack. The transmission needs an input shaft seal and the table will be really helpful to raise it up so I don't have to work on it on the floor. And you're partially right on the plastic cup. It's mostly for this: Just got it set up a couple weeks ago. All extra stuff from my parents that they didn't need for their kegerator setup.

  21. Quick bump to this, I did a double check on the bearings, and I actually have a full set of main bearings (30731544) and the one flange bearing (31251598) needed for the crank, as well as the big-end bearings of the connecting rod (3077466), all OEM/blue box Volvo parts. An extra $100 if you'd like them with the pistons and rods!

  35. Wife's XC60 has an intermittent DEM fault for the pump and a traction control icon that takes about 30 seconds to go off after start up. This weekend I removed the pump and cleaned it, changed the AOC oil and filter. Also serviced the rear diff fluid. Same symptoms as before šŸ¤¦ā€ā™‚ļø

  36. Tried to diag P0455 on the V70R, but that went seemingly nowhere. After replacing the canister close valve (which did seem to be failed), it still failed the test. I also replaced the purge valve just for sh*ts and giggles, we'll see if that does it. I dropped the tank, pressure tested, smoke tested in several locations, and nothing to be found. Maybe I'll get lucky and it won't come back. Not really worried about it, I just don't like seeing the CEL on. Now for the next unnecessary thing to drive me insane, I want to track down the irritating whining noise in my engine bay. Still have no idea where it is... but I can hear it clear as day. Nobody has been able to point me in the right direction, seemingly because I've never seen (or heard) it on any other car.

  37. https://www.willtheyfit.com/ Put in your current wheel specs. Measure from the lips to the inner and outer fenders. Put in your new wheel specs. Do some maths. And see how much room you have.

  39. Nice E53! I just picked one up a few weeks ago too for a new daily driver. I love it! Super well maintained one owner X5 with 205k miles. He kept EVERY maintenance record since 2003. And he over-maintained it like I do with all my cars... it fell into the perfect hands if I say so myself! I've put about 800 miles on it so far and it's awesome. Rock solid car, super smooth on the highway. I wanted it to use for towing, since I sold my Mountaineer back in June and I don't like borrowing trucks every time I need to pick up non-running car. The X5 is perfect since I'm not planning on towing over capacity, and the handling as a daily driver is unbeatable as far as SUVs go. Well, I guess an E70 X5 beats it, but they're nowhere near as cheap as I paid for this one. It's a fitting replacement daily for my E39 touring, which is now in the garage as I contemplate replacing the oil pan gasket. As for the V70R, I picked up these Otreras from the junkyard the other day. Just need to order some fresh rubber for them before I swap them on. I also want to order those iPd poly spring adjusters to raise up the rear end a touch. As you can see, it's sagging quite a bit with the FCP springs on the delta link rear end.
