If the PCV is indeed original that would be my first priority, even if it’s passing the “glove test”Creating lists and priorities for my 04 V70. I'm still chasing vibrations/clunking in the front suspension, like just about everyone on the forum. The rear (lower) engine mount is the last one I need to replace. The steering wheel vibration has improved with each of the previous mount replacements, but there's still more body shaking than there should be when the car is stopped. The front struts are spent. They're not leaking, but are rusted and sloppy. LCA bushings are cracked/torn.
The car threw a p0420 code last week and I'll start chasing that down when I get the car back up on jack stands. I honestly can't tell if its running rough or if the last collapsed mount or spent subframe bushings are just making it feel that way. I have plugs, ignition coils, air and fuel filters on-route for a basic tune-up. The coils are the factory originals as far as I can see from the maintenance records we got from the previous (first) owners. Plugs have about 80k miles on them. I believe the PCV is still the original and does not appear to have been serviced by the previous owners.
I still have to replace the parking brakes and cables. I have the parts, but that was pushed down the list by other repairs. Choices, choices, choices.
Not so much my car as new V70 happenings.
Guy calls my store and says he has a 04 V70 and needs some rear bulbs. I'm like, "you called the right store at the right time to talk to the right guy". I have a 04 V70 and just replaced the rear lights.
Got him the correct bulbs and gave him advice on how to change them. He also ordered a new rear wiper that he picked up today.
I advised him to get a T25 screwdriver since he will find many uses for it.
Did your 3 spoke steering wheel have an airbag when you took it in to the dealer?Local dealer put in airbag 32332161 into my 2001 with the Genuine Volvo Accessory ( ;-) tanks S-B) three spoke perforated leather wheel, noting steering wheel was replaced.
About the only static was over getting them to take the old 4 spoke airbag for proper disposal, happy to get it out of my garage.
