  2. S60 (2001-2010)
    This is a build thread for my s60 Started out in life as a 2002 2.4t lpt, i upped the boost without a tune which resulted in a spun bearing after detonation. I then bought a b5204t5 engine stripped it down and it looked almost new inside, clearly very well looked after i then started buying...
  3. S40 & V50 (2005-2012)
    Hello everyone. I need some help identifying what engine code my car has. It’s a S40 T5 2005 FWD. I’m looking to do some service on my S40. I start picking out pieces like filters and other stuff and put them in the basket. The last thing was the engine oil, simply enough I thought. It wasn’t...
  4. V70 & XC70 (2008 - 2016)
    I'm looking at doing minor engine mods; dual port ecrv, resonator delete, intake, etc. Getting a P tune before i do anything, and wanted to know if its safe to do some stuff with just that.
  5. S60, S60CC & V60, V60CC (2011-2018)
    So I have a 2013 S60 T6, which I originally bought a month ago with 117k miles and now has 119k miles. After I already bought it, I noticed an engine noise that, I won’t lie, I was a little bit sketched out by. Although, I figured it was simply because the dealership I bought it from decided to...

    Hello All I am considering a US P 1800 (no car currently) purchase for export to Australia. our customs has an import policy of zero tolerance for asbestos. As cars can sit for a long time heat shield, brakes and clutch are obvious suspects. I would appreciate a heads up on other areas that...
  7. S80 (2007-2016)
    Hello dear community, I own a Volvo S80 II since nearly a year now. I am totally satisfied with the car, but it has a small problem that is really annoying me. The car stutters for a few seconds after I start it. After a few seconds of idling or some throttle input, the car settles and then...

    Looking for advice on building my 2.5t into something that doesn't do what my user name says it's constant and it's smoking. When on is it vvt or the cams or heads how can I tel

    Hello, I recently got the electic block heater kit (31664097) installed on my V60 D4 AWD. The heater was mounted according to instructions at the back of the engine block next to a radiator-like component (perhaps oil radiotor). The system was filled up with coolant and engine heated ensuring...
  10. S90 & V90, V90CC (SPA: 2017 - )
    Hi there, this question is hypothetical, but I am curious to know its answer nevertheless. I myself own a Volvo S90 T4 (petrol, 190 BHP). Is it possible to legally uptune the engine to obtain more BHP and torque ? (This is a theoretical question, as I am not planning to do that even if it's...
  11. XC90 (2003 - 2014)
    Early quarantine I made the mistake of driving my 2005 Volvo XC90 2.5T with no oil and seized the engine. Such a stupid mistake. I finally took it into a mechanic to confirm what I already knew: the engine needs to be replaced. The car has about 175K miles on it but has been in my family...
  12. General FWD & AWD
    Hi everyone! I’m seeking a bit of advice please. My v40 has got a loud high pitched whining noise coming from the engine. I’ve recently had it in a Volvo specialist and they are not sure on what it is. They’ve taken my timing belt out etc and cannot find any issues. The car has only got 25000...

    Hi everyone, I recently noticed my windscreen fluid was no longer working. Assuming the fluid was empty, I went to refill the tank only to find that the fluid was draining out of a disconnected hose. The rear window fluid is still working. Here are a couple photos: Based on the location of...
  14. S80 (2007-2016)
    Hello. I am an owner of a 2006 D5 185PS S80. Bought the car in 2011 and been using it ever since. Driven around on many road trips, ran without problems and served me very well. Around July in 2019, while traveling over a bridge my car broke down and had to call for recovery. Later turned out...

  16. S70, V70 & V70XC (1998-2000)
    Hello, My 99 V70 AWD turbo has a pretty noisy ticking sound coming from the engine. The sound has been there since I originally bought it 3 years ago. I've replaced the spark plugs with OEM and torqued them down to spec. I think it may be the injectors, but I am unsure. I've included a link to...

  19. XC90 (2003 - 2014)
    I just noticed this noise on my 2010 xc90 3.2 FWD. The noise is barely audible when I'm inside the car. but when I opened the hood, it is loud. And it only happens when I put it in Drive or Reverse and goes away with higher RPM. Has anyone encounter this kind of issue? Does it hint to a...
  20. P1800, 1800 & 1800ES (1959-1973)
    Hey gang, I've recently become a sport wagon owner and need some help adjusting for relocating the engine from Tucson to Denver. It handled the drive great, adding about 1k more miles, but started sputtering at higher altitude (+5,000ft) when idling. Oil pressure seems fine (~40 or 50 @idle) and...
