      Fuel pressure sensor in today. Made some difference, smoothed out the idle and less delay on throttle. Weíll see if that is/was part of my missing 4 mpg.

      Sea foam in the gas tank, new Pcv box will be here Thursday. Iíll sea foam the oil and clean everything up inside when I replace it and do an oil change and do a power steering fluid/brake fluid reservoir drain and fill.

      Need to figure out why Iím having trouble filling my gas tank. Itís almost like itís vapor locking and kicks off the pump constantly. Blocked vent in the fill neck? Acting like a vent tube on the p80 cars but no fuel smell.

      Seafoamed and replaced pcv, changed the oil for the first time in my ownership.

      Overall what came out of pan and the filter housing were clean af. Pcv trap wasnít terrible but had some chunky carbon buildup that I soaked with seafoam and wiped up.

      Next up, fuel fill issue and growling from wheels

      Aren't the low beams H11? I saw a YouTube video of a projector retrofit for a 2009 xc60 and it was amazing. However, I have the morimoto 2stroke LED kit that a might try. I wasn't a fan of the leds in the projector housings of my c30, but maybe they'll work better in the reflector housing on the xc60.

      Long time since Iíve been on. Life/work got in the way and Iím out on medical leave now, not sure if Iíll be going back.

      Nothing new to report really. Threw in a few leftover led bulbs in the interior/puddle lights, installed optilux h9 65w low/100w high bulbs and these for fogs:

      Developed the windshield leak back in October. Volvo goodwill resealed the windshield last month and when I got the car back, dealership scratched the windshield on the inside, right in my field of vision. So I ended up with a new windshield anyhow. Didnít clean any of the water damage up originally and refused to clean it up, had to fight with them on it. Still no resolution. Eff it. At least I got to drive a 2020 xc60t6, 2020 s60t5, and the new Xc40 for a few days...kinda mixed feelings on them. The 40 grew on me although the steering feel sucks on all of them (curse you lane assist). The t6 was stuuuuupid fast though and put a smile on my face when passing people.

      Currently working on a curved light bar flush mounted in the lower center grill. The high beams are abysmal even with high watt whiter bulbs.

      Not so flush mounted light bar. Still needs wired up and properly aligned and I need to install the modified lower grill panel. Looks good from 20 ft but the gaps in the top corner set off my need for perfection (hardware is visible). Sticks out about 1/4Ē from flush but thatís due to my stupidity. Easy enough fix.

      For anyone else that decides to do this, couple tips/tricks:

      1: the bumper does not need to be removed. You can pop the lower grill out by pushing in. There is a wiring harness attached to the lower tabs that need a removed.

      2: I opted to drill 2 holes thru the lower bumper crossbrace and slipped 2 bolts thru as mounting studs to mount to. I had to modify the brackets that came with the light bar by drilling out the center hole that mounts to the bar itself and ground off the front of the mount flush with the bar. With a bit of massaging the bar will mount completely flush with the bumper, there is room there.


      Pretty straightforward install. Wiring will be completed with a Hella HL15113 harness. Hot wired on its own circuit.

      Project: Wander3 - 2010 XC60 3.2 AWD

      Nothing to update. Basic maintenance. Hit 110k miles. So far so good. Suspension is all blown but all original so thatíll get fixed at some point. Rear end links are shot and move with little to no effort by hand, so moogs are going on with poly bushings (end links with grease fittings ftw). Koni reds will replace factory shocks/struts. Need front wheel bearings/tie rods and probably end links also...trans fluid needs changed along with angle/bevel gear and diff...power steering fluid and brake fluid need done...thermostat/serpentine belt and tensioner/coolant and hoses need replaced...

      I feel like Iíve been here before oh wait, Wander2...

      Iím not going to be updating this thread going forward, kind of pointless as itís a daily driver and I donít have the time or inclination to browse the forums anymore. Iíll fix what breaks and what needs fixed for inspection and emissions and drive it til itís dead.

      All yíall stay safe and healthy during this crazy virus lockdown, this is Wander signing off

      Not really an update, more of a PSA: for anyone that needs rear sway bar bushings on their xc60, the energy suspension 9.5125R fits factory bar perfectly. No need to reuse the old brackets, but the energy suspension brackets do need to be hogged and slotted out a tad for the factory bolts to fit thru. Do not use the washers included in the bushing kit under the mount.

      Overall impressions with the matching energy suspension link bushings on moog end links is impressive. No need to upgrade to the elevate or ipd rear sway bar. With new Koni red shocks there is little to no roll in the rear and handling has become more crisp. $40 well spent for bushings.

      Now the question becomes, will sport springs from a 2016 t6 fit without lowering the car?
