      There are different sorts of noises in the intake system. First, you have what we call the "second order" noise, which is predominant. It is the noise that is created when an intake valve opens and...

      The engine cares more about how many revolutions the crankshaft makes than how many miles the vehicle travels. In the city, where you you spend much more time in the lower gear ratios, there are...

      Many engines use the "accessory" belt to drive the water pump. Probably all engines that use a timing chain instead of a timing belt.

      Guys, look... I gotta revoke your Man Card if you can't read a dipstick. It's one quart between lines.

      Our V60 is proving to be just too small and cramped for our baby-boomer bodies. It's actually more of a hatchback than a true estate wagon, like previous volvo wagons.
