Re: (JRL)

i\my car has done 62000km (38000 miles), not much. my dealer said that at that mileage its unlikely that a hose is leaking, but i told him to double check anyway. i get the car today, hope that its improved. im going to time its 0-60 again, anything below 8sec is an improvment. thnx again guys. btw, the cat converter does drain power, but i dnt think it will slow the car down that much!
ohh, and btw, the dealer said that if there is a leak in one of the turbo hoses the check engine light will turn on. is that correct????

Re: (MadeInJapan)

How Do you know??? LOL
i got my car back, its worse than before!!
as the dealer claims, the hoses are ok
. if its not the hoses, nor the cat converter , wat else is there!! might it be that the engine busted? or the turbo is dead? i mean it only has 65000 km done!!!
anyway, im taking it to a mechanic tommorow to help me get to the root of the problem. buys, im goin crazy here, i mean its killin me. 240bhp can barley make it on an uphill mountain road!! thats not how it should be. PLZZ HELP, i dnt want to loose my car!

Re: (Nebor)

i took my car to a mechanic. he suggested that the problem might be that the turbo propellors are sanded and grinded due to bad air filtering, thus making them smaller and producing less boost. is that a probability? where can i get a new propellor? or do i have to change the turbo?

Re: my S 70 R is doing 0-60 in 9.45s!!!!!!!!!! Problem suggestions!? (Ishtta)

Hey guys, i have a question! How much power loss, in %, could a leak in the turbo hose cause?
my guess is around 10%, but i have much more loss of power. wat is the maximum?

and could a leak and another problem be cause hat much power loss?
if the leak is major, and i mean major as in Zero boost, how would the car preform?

thnx guys, i really need to know that info so i can know if my car has one or more problems. i feel my car is outputting 190-200bhp max! i feel like a GL, to turbo at all!

Re: my S 70 R is doing 0-60 in 9.45s!!!!!!!!!! Problem suggestions!? (JRL)

but an S70 GL, 140 bhp, does 0-60 in ~11seconds. i feel my car has no turbo, preforming as a GL would. and FIY, no there is nobody in my Freakin city that could check all these out. all the mechanics here suck. i have to do it myself, and i dnt have the correct toold to do that. i love gettin my hands dirty with my volvo. takecare guys. thx anyway.

BTW, u sound like ur angry at me JRL. wats up with that?

i just came back from the dealership. it seems that i have a problem with the transmition. i really didnt get what he means, i dont know what the real problem is. they still didnt check the other parts of the engine. im sure they will find a turbo leak and a problem with the catalytic convertor. ill keep you posted.
PS: what might the problem with the transmition be? its an Automatic btw
