  1. Some people are like clouds, when they disappear it's a beautiful day.
  2. He's quiet if he's got a mouth full.
  3. I could of hit the limiter but only in 3rd as 4th would of been about 135MHP.
  4. I think you need to check it correctly as I'm sure you're wrong and it's not boosting to 44 PSI.
  5. 2
  6. Polish it harder and it will turn silver. That's just the right amount.
  7. I'm all loaded, car's washed, compounded, polished and waxed.
  8. lol, now did I tighten up all your suspension bolts...
  9. I won't buy you lunch but I'll try and bake a cake. http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-an-upsidedown-cake-with-almost-any-fruit-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-192070 I hope all goes well.
  10. If you remove the intercooler to ETM pipe you can easily get at the starter terminals. Also check the earth lead on the front of the gearbox. The ABS related problems can be down to you driving with a fucking flat tire as the rolling radius would be less.
  11. Send me a PM and I'll go through your options but it's looking like an engine and gearbox out job to do the clutch, rear main, piston rings, and head refresh. Currently you'd be looking at about the end of July.
  12. If you weren't a customer I might be inclined to be slightly offensive to you right now....
  13. Not know which type you have makes it harder to advise so here goes. If they are circumcised use a 19mm double hex socket. If not ask a very nice man if you can see his tool.
  14. Please will a Moderator correct the above and remove my post. Thanks.
  15. Insufficient oil film strength. This can be due to oil grade or infrequent oil changes. When changing a worn cam it's vital to also change its followers.
  16. I've emailed Jackie for hot breakfasts after Aidan pointed it out... As for Chris I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him to bring the "right car". Don't forget he has 4 Volvo's and still turned up to a VOLVO dyno day in something else. I don't currently have his 850 so surely he could bring that😂
  17. With Ashok's tools and AidAn's Halfords set that will be fine for hand tools and I'll bring the other hand told I don't want to use. If Aidan and Ashok bring their impact guns and Aidan brings his spare driveshafts that would help. I'll bring a large alloy jack, two other jacks would be good. I'll bring axel stands/Pegs. Aidan if you can drop the spare 80 ltr of methanol round to Irf's then if we run short he can bring it over on Thursday.
  18. You need a mechanic not an auto electrician. Before connecting any computer you ought to have the car check over properly. For the engine start with cam timing and then a compression test then check for air leaks ect. ABS, check sensor rings first. If if you don't start from the beginning it will just end up wasting everyone's time you ask for help.
  19. Between 12 and 14 is one part from Volvo. If you can see clean the area and then see exactly where its leaking I would try and just address that as the entire pipe is a pain to change and not an easy DIY job. I would of thought new clips the right size should cure it as I've never know that hose to fail. The thermostat housings are also prone to leaking being metal gaskets. Nick did replace the clips sometime ago and yes the water pump if the cause should still be under the 2 year Volvo warranty against the old reg as it was paid for and fitted by City Motors on the Saturday after Combe.
  20. Most newly purchased S60 or V70Rs cost about 3-4k to address the existing failures so that everything works as it should. Springs, shocks, bushes and mounts,wishbones, possible clutch and imminent anglegear and a couple of suspension sensors. If the above work at the point of sale great, it will give time to save for when they do need changing. They are very nice and competent cars to drive when fresh but when tired or with lowering springs they are one of the worst Volvos ever to drive.
  21. The small hose under the top radiator hose is part of the PCV. It's most likely to be the hose clip that needs tightening.
  22. I think so but you need to be a bit clearer.
  23. Hi and welcome. The AWD exhaust is different to a FWD one, if you fit the prop you should be able to tell the real reason why it was removed.
  24. If the PCV is fine then turbo or valve stem seals.
  25. The best gearbox tie bar small bush is an original one from an 850 or *70 petrol.
