      Ideally, you would use VIDA to verify actual operating temperature as well as using it to reset the counter when the fluid is completely changed, BUT, a good drive-about would be adequate if...

      Thinking about your issue, and I still wonder about the delivery circuit to the pump. I would definitely look to the wiring diagram and find if it is the PEM or CEM that supplies pump voltage. They...

      It would seem that VIDA would wonder what's up when it doesn't see fuel pressure with a pump that does not run? Also, if it thinks the pump has been activated, could you not check for voltage on the...

      Is it the actual changer or the in-dash single play?
      Wasn't the changer an accessory, as well as having been part of some up-graded package? I don't know, and too lazy to look it up. It seems to me...

      I hope someone from a dealership checks in and verifies that this is the new normal, or not. Maybe FCP mistakenly got a load of rejects from Volvo.
      Another possibility is that rotors hadn't been...

      I've never seen anything like that. A rotor should be inherently very close to in balance. Lopping off a big chunk like that would seem to me to indicate another problem with the manufacture. It...

      I put Meyle inners from FCP on mine a year ago. Only about 5K miles on them, but the potholes and lumps on the streets in "America's Finest City" (actual slogan) are brutal. So far, so good.
