  1. XC90 (2003 - 2014)
    I recently purchased a 2009 XC90 3.2L AWD. The car has had a resonant vibration that can be felt through the steering wheel and floor at idle, and especially when under load from approximately 1500 rpm to 2000 rpm. It can also be felt at approximately 3000 rpm to 3500 rpm, under load. It is not...
  2. V70 & XC70 (2008 - 2016)
    I have a 2009 V70 3.2. One day as if for no apparent reason while driving down the highway power cut off. After getting it towed to a nearby parking lot, I noticed that the air intake hose was disconnected, or loosely connected instead, to the throttle body. Ok, I figure that is the culprit...
  3. XC90 (2003 - 2014)
    [TLDR: what is the easiest way to maneuver the manifold back into position for bolting it onto the block?] I've been working to patch up the exhaust on my 2009 XC90 with 3.2 engine. I live in a city where very heavy road salt is used, and it has taken a toll on my suspension and exhaust. I...
  4. XC90 3.2 Exhaust Manifold Heat Shield

    The lower shield has had sections cut out so it could be removed despite seized/rounded screws securing it to the exhaust manifold.
  5. Off center hole in exhaust manifold flange

    The threaded rod in the center is a plug I welded in place to repair the hole.

  7. XC90 (2003 - 2014)
    I'm in the process of doing my serpentine, decoupler, and cooling system work. Luckily my decoupler seal only had a little seeping oil on it, but I already bought a new seal to replace it. I wanted to share how the quality aftermarket seals now come with a plastic cone/tube like tool or guide...
  8. V70 & XC70 (2008 - 2016)
    Hello, First time poster (long time admirer) here so hopefully it's in the right section, etc. I have an '08 XC70 with ~209k miles in need of a flex pipe repair. It is the 3.2 motor, and the pipe in question is on the manifold/cat section of the car. An exhaust shop quoted me around $650 for...
  9. V70 & XC70 (2008 - 2016)
    Hello all! I am a new 2008 xc70 owner with the 3.2 engine. I was wondering what are good sites to buy parts from. Currently there is a leak from the lower coolant hose quick disconnect. The little plastic piece with the o ring that goes inside the hose. I was unable to find it at any local parts...
  10. XC90 (2003 - 2014)
    So basically I was out for a short ride in the city in my 08 XC90 3.2 2008 AWD when I stopped at a red light, when the light turned green I started to accelerate when I immediately felt something went wrong in the engine, loss of power and engine vibration while driving and at idle. And if I...
  11. General FWD & AWD
    As I sailed right on past 200K, I've been wanting to create a thread where we can kind of keep track of high mileage 3.2 Volvos with original engines. I'm curious about the record holders and how they got there. Please post year, model, mileage, oil/viscosity used, oil change schedule, and any...
  12. S80 (2007-2016)
    My 2008 3.2 FWD S80 seems to have questionable fuel economy around town, although I'm not sure if it is because I live in a small town and rarely go on the freeway, or if something could be wrong with the car. I just moved into the city center and have a short commute but pretty much everywhere...
  13. XC90 (2003 - 2014)
    Sorry for cross-posting; it's been some time since I participated in the forums (was much more active when I still had my 2001 V70XC - now just have a 2009 XC90 3.2) TLDR: Followed the 'standard' procedure to replace an old and failed alternator clutch pulley (remove intake manifold, etc.) only...
  14. S80 (2007-2016)
    So I have an 09 V70 3.2 that will not turn over, nor will it start. Here is what I know: The battery is good. The starter is fine. Turns over when manipulated just fine. Both key fobs do not work. When in park and pushed to start the car will simply cut off the radio and do nothing else. Some...
  15. S80 (2007-2016)
    Hi Fellow Members, So this is my first post and thanks for all the knowledge that you all share here. I am having trouble with a 2010 S80 3.2 I6 that I bought from private party, unfortunately I did not take the car through inspection before buying. Car was very seldom driven by previous owner...
  16. S80 (2007-2016)
    Not sure if this is just something that the 3.2 does, but every time I press the gas from a stop it takes a moment to get moving, sometimes almost a whole second, usually when I’m pressing the gas while turning. It feels a little jerky. I’d have to press my foot down extremely lightly, then work...
