Default OBDII CAT

First Time Long Time,

I think I have finally found a forum with people that understand that labor of love that is a Volvo S80. I have a problem trying to find an aftermarket CAT for my 2.9 L. Any suggestions other than, "shoot it, bury it, cry a little and buy another one"? Any help would be appreciated, I love the car, but like most of you she gives me an ulcer with the amount of problems I've had.

why not get one from a junkyard company? I've heard of some that take the good parts out of cars and you can buy them at a very good discounted price!

By Law junkyards are NOT ALLOWED TO SELL CATS.
Uncle E check in the general section I made a Post with Links to sites check out some of the sites and see if you can find one.

Hi,

What year is you car and how many miles does it have. And waht kind of problems did you have. I have a 99 2.9 model and right now it has 96K miles on it. The only problems that I had with it is the ETM throttle body replacement with I got my money back under the 10 year 200K miles extended warrenty, the ECM and the front sway bar links. I heard from a mechanic that some cars turn out to be very bad, some average and some turn out to be really good.

It's a 2000 2.9L. After looking at the topics in the forum, I think that i have experienced about 85% of the problems listed. I actually paid to replace the ETM last year. I think that it was prior to the free ETM service. The car, even with it's problems, has never left me on the side of the road (knock on wood). After repairing this round of problems, I'm selling her and getting a newer one. The S80 has been the most luxurious car I have ever owned and even though it has caused me a lot of headaches, it still makes me feel good when i get a compliment about the cars looks.

You should get reimbursed for the ETM replacement that you paid for.
