Hi guys - I am new to this board and am looking for some information. I like this board already, it is structured exactly like vwvortex. This car has been in my family for the last 5 years and I am now acquiring it. The maintenance on the car has been good, but it does have what seems to be an over boost problem. I am assuming it is wastgate related, but any input would help. The car cuts out when the boost spikes too high. The car will only be driven a maximum of 25 miles per week so I am not terribly worried about doing any major damage. Believe it or not, everything works, AC blows cold, but the car does need an ABS module (seems to be a common problem). TIA

Gee, I wonder why?

To another point...
You live in West Chester
and you didn't buy your Volvo from me.

You should be ashamed of yourself

JRL and Austin Powers...both International Men of Mystery!


My advice is to look at JRL's deal before all else. He's trustworthy...I've bought from him before...

Cheers,
Prospero

Only Volvos I have right now, (this minute for sale) are the 2 R's and the Laser Blue has a deposit on it.
I'm always on the lookout. Have my eye on an '98 80K mile Saffron V70R
Thanks, BTW, (Yeah baby, yeah)

.... I will be happy to stop by your ship and go for a ride, sounds like it is a fast car and I have always liked the R line volvos.

As for the car I am getting... it is free third car. I am just looking for some advice on the boost spike problem the car has. I know I am a newb on this board, but I am just looking for some info.

And here I thought that pump in your glove box was for the tires.
Hmm, since the two of us could start a food show titled "TWO FAT GUYS" I don't think you should throw stones
