I think the waterfall dashes should be the same between the similar models and vintage C30, S40 and V50 (with the V50 being the coolest, of course). ;-) What part of the console are you looking...

I also am skeptical about "fix in a bottle" products, but have to say that I do like Seafoam. I've used the typical method of slowly pouring in a few ounces into the throttle body or vacuum port as...

Congrats on getting that cap off... hope the new one works well (and "stays loose"). ;-)

And yes, older cars do require a bit more fiddling and maintenance, but when you think about how nice it...

Sounds like a possibility. I would seriously recommend monitoring the voltage getting to the "control" input (the small red - I think - wire to the starter). That will essentially tell you whether...

Looks like a job for some needle-nose vice-grip pliers. I'd just grab part of the cap that's obviously NOT part of the reservoir, and turn to the left, and hope for the best. And I'd put a little...

The car alarm is tied into the immobilizer system, so yes, I can believe disabling it could have an effect. Put the fuse back in and see what happens. Also, if you see a key symbol lighting up on...

I can't help but think that the problem has to be a valve timing issue. It's hard to imagine anything else causing such consistent and "almost but not quite" numbers across all the cylinders. The...

Yes, you should re-gap the plugs to the spec for the vehicle. It's a simple process - I normally just drop the plugs onto a solid surface to deform the L-shaped extension (reducing the gap to the...

Fuse F34 in the under-hood fusebox sends voltage to the coils. I can't think of why that would blow with an oil pan problem though, but it's certainly worth a check. Check that there is voltage...

That seems to be more of an issue with Volvos when It's really cold out, and I'm betting that has more to do with salt, ice, rust and slush than temperature. I've read about the ABS sensors getting...

I agree with your assessment. Almost certainly a voltage regulator (or general alternator) issue. If it was a "loose wire" somewhere, chances are that it wouldn't be related to heat, or take 15...
