      Swedespeed does support on-site attachments, that was changed a couple of years back. They're a little tricky to use but are available from the "advanced" mode when posting. Scroll down from the...

      The channel is in the final pigtail segment, just a foot or so from the sensor. Basically, what comes in the plastic package if you buy a new one :) Of course the caution would apply to what connects...

      You want to be super-careful using grease on the oxygen sensor connector. It has an internal "reference air" channel which is critical to the accuracy of the measurement at the sensor itself. If you...

      Like I mentioned it sells for a lot less, below $120 and there are other models.

      It has other useful features, a big one for me is it's battery eliminator function, which allows removing the...

      The CTek7002 is not strictly a battery tender, and it's absolutely positively not a 1A wall-wart. Check it out.

      That looks totally different from the one in the earlier link. And it looks important. Sorry, still don't recognize it.

      Or just drive it and decide what to when it breaks, or you can't take it anymore! "It's nothin the radio won't fix" 😄

      Well if it only happens when the car is moving, that is almost certainly an output-side issue, downstream of the clutch and input shaft. But these trannys have like 4 intermediate shafts, so maybe...

      Agree, resistor would imply it's a temperature sensor. Unless there's an LED peeking out the other side.

      MHO it is unlikely to be the release bearing, but not impossible. Maybe you or a mechanic could use a stethoscope to localize the noises, while operating the clutch pedal? I'd expect it to rise...

      Great! In my case I also ordered the manifold gasket and the bolts and springs to fasten the heat shield, which show signs of wear but may be ok for putting back. After injuring my shoulder the...

      I don't recognize it, but that does not look like a plug. It's more like a sensor, or perhaps a light, would need to see the other side. The plug is the two-wire thing on the right that connects to...

      Is that sarcastic? Because standard batteries start to show their age after perhaps 6 or 7, and 13 is beyond the pale. Especially in an infrequently-driven vehicle. Maintenance chargers can extend...

      There's no kit, at least, not from Volvo. I'd strongly suggest replacing studs, nuts and washers. The washers are quite thick, and are dished to provide tension. All will fatigue over time.

      I don't think the 5-speed is different from the 6-speed, so I guess I'd suggest pushing down harder, pulling up /pushing down once it starts twisting, or just plain forcing it. There's a cross-pin...

      No, VVT only kicks in with the engine running and oil pressure up. And in any case, both intake and exhaust valves are always closed in the compression cycle.

      Agree with Raphmass24 but if the compression is that low, you should probably remove that tune until you work out the cause. It could cause some real damage.

      That's pretty low. Good news is it's consistent across all cylinders. I'd put a borescope down the plug holes and look at the valves. Seems likely the cylinders might be crudded up.
