      Well, I am throwing in the towel on this one. I've been unable to correct the issue (VVT solenoid not activating in a timely manner) and am getting rid of the car because it failed emissions and I...

      Just got back from the shop with the car. The lead tech thinks that the problem comes from an intermittently weak/wacky signal from the ECU to the solenoid. It's only wacky when accelerating under...

      Back with no resolution (yet)

      Since I had some question about the timing of the engine, I eventually took the V70 to a local Volvo specialist, who's worked on hundreds of these engines. He said my timing job was spot on, and...

      Not yet, been tied down with other projects since this car still runs fine. Still wondering whether the nominal angle on the camshaft is normally as low as I saw in the Vida readout.

      Speedbumps - Thanks for the info about oil pressure. I'm not seeing any leaks around external engine seals, so maybe my HF oil pressure gauge was a bit off? Since the solenoid/camshaft function is...

      I checked the oil pressure (at the oil pressure sensor) and got readings from 70 psi (idle) to 95 psi @3500 rpms. So oil pressure (there at least) looks good. How could pressure be good down on the...

      Yes, I did follow your video, which was very helpful. Isn't it true that if the timing was off a tooth or two, the engine would run rough? My engine runs great now. I will remove the solenoid and...

      I'm gearing up to replace the steering rack on my '05 V70 (2.4l 5 speed manual). I ran the VIN decoder, which said I have speed-sensitive steering. YV1SW612452463842. But my car is a base model,...

      OK, figured out what the hub is. I guess after 300k miles it is toast.
