      KKlepack - 1999 RED-V70R

      So, I just picked up 1999 V70R in Chicago on Craigslist.

      Red 1999 V70R, 212k miles.

      Carfax shows that car was originally sold in IL and no service history until 06/2010 and 124K, after that was serviced by Howard Orloff Imports, Inc. in Chicago, until 08/2013 and 147K and sold to 2nd owner and there is a gap until 06/2016 150K some service was done and next on 11/2019 and 212K by 3rd owner I assume to reprogram ETM

      The good: New ETM from XeMODeX (previous owner bought it from IPD 10/2019 and had a dealer reprogram it), interior is on decent shape no rips, no rust and tires and rims are OK, looks like new Volvo battery

      Not so bad, I guess:
      Paint looks good but some parts were repainted like rear bumper (paint is peeling off in couple areas) and perhaps rear door

      The bad: Not sure yet as car starts and dies (rough idle), but runs fine above 2500 RPM,
      I could not test drive it so no idea on suspension and AWD no spare tire, TB was done at 120K in 2009, also I see a leak under the engine and I suspect it could rear main seal 


      Third owner (bought it in 09/2019 and never transferred the title) so Iím the fourth owner.

      Plans:

      Stage ď0Ē
      PCV
      Timing and Serpentine Belts
      Water pump
      and on and onÖ.

      Looking to get some advice with this project. Iíve owned few Volvos in the past and my DD is 2016 XC60, so not new to Volvoís and not afraid to tackle a project at my own garage.

      @silent-circuit and @Chicago_Wagon - Thank you


      @ScottishBrick - I had reach out to XeMODeX and they pointed me in te same direction https://xemodex.com/us/knowledgebase...-s70-v70-xc70/, but I think I may replace vacuum lines first and if there is no improvement in idle then it is my next step.


      To start with:
      Ordered red silicon vacuum lines from http://www.siliconeintakes.com/liqui...ose-p-593.html
      Order PCV Kit , filters, gaskets, etc, from FCP . Hope all this will arrive before the weekend.

      These cars have minimal vacuum lines. TCV and brake booster circuit/pcv. A bad hose will cause fuel trim issues but not a failure to idle. Try unplugging the etm and seeing if anything changes. Also get yourself a ViDA/DiCE setup its as useful as a 10mm with working on these cars

      Relay Cooling Fan2 middle plug wire is busted. I wonder how easy is to fix it. I will try to take this plug a part and solder.

      You can protect the injector wires with split loom. That's what Volvo used originally but whatever they spec'd turns to dust from the heat in that area after a few years.

      Nice score. Red V70Rs are crazy rare.

      Once you figure out what is wrong, I would just do an engine out service, especially since you need a RMS. But even if you didn't you would save time since it sounds like you need to refresh everything. Makes like so much easier having it out. Seals are cheap once you're that far in so I'd just do them all. You'll also want to update the oil pickup and refresh the seals, so you don't spin a bearing going around a corner.

      Also your ETM doesn't need to be programmed. That is a myth largely perpetuated by uninformed people who oppose technological advancement.

      @JaredR Thanks, I'm still sorting things out as weather permits (getting cold in Chicago). I like your idea on removing engine but at the moment, I have limited space in my garage. At this moment I'm not 100% sure on RMS. I order PCV kit as a precaution as I can not validate "Glove test" since engine dies on idle and at the same time I will check ETM ground.

      Can you elaborate little more on where I can get more info on "update the oil pickup and refresh the seals, so you don't spin a bearing going around a corner".

      I can help with this. Idk how familiar you are with RN oiling systems, but thereís a revised pick up tube that you can use if/when you replace the oil pan o-rings. I did it on my RN swap into the 850, there might be pics & PNís on that thread but itís also not too hard to scrounge that stuff off FCP euro or Volvo parts webstore (my favorite location for diagrams when I donít have VIDA).

      This is the new style pick up and new o-rings installed on the RN motor in my 850:



      I havenít found many examples of loss of oil pressure on forums/facebook but the seals I replaced were defiantly deformed and the donor motor had relatively low miles (130k ish).

      Most people don't corner hard enough to ever notice until things get real bad.


      You need longer bolts for the updated pickup tube as well. I think I used water pump bolts on mine.

      @Zoinks, Thanks for the info , my priority is to get the engine running smooth and i will definitely revisit this idea,

      So, I was at the local junkyard and was able to locate Relay Cooling Fan2 middle plug now it is time to solder wires together and plug it in. Yesterday, I did dry compression test on cold engine (Chicago temps 30F} and I believe i did it correctly (removed all spark plugs, removed Fuel Replay, pedal to the metal and for about 7 cranks) and reading was :
      C1-95
      C2-95
      C3-95
      C4-90
      C5-100

      Is doing cold engine compression correct way or should I try to worm up the engine and try again?
      I'm still chasing rough idle and stalling issue, Will connect VIDA today to get some codes.

      Question , what is the best way to reset all codes and start with clean slate? Disconnect battery for 15min, and turn the key to position II to drain power?

      Also need to clear codes with VIDA to get rid of old codes. Probably a lot of them unless it's been serviced at Volvo.


      Those compression numbers are not good. I checked the compression in my T-5R a couple years ago at about 290k (mostly curiosity but it has always sounded like one was a little low) and I was at 150, 170, 170, 165, 165.

      Little update.
      It is cold in Chicago and I had no time to redo the compression test, but I was able to hookup Vida.

      For hack of it, I did start the car multiple times before I connected the Vida and car ran fine for about 10-15 mins , 880RPM, nice idle and I was able to do the "glove test" and it passed (glove was being sucked in) so PCV seems like it is not clogged but I will replace it with the one with FCP PCV kit just to make sure, or should I clean it?

      Then when engine wormed up rough idle reappeared and car was stalling . Vida showed coolant temperature about 87F and seemed like level of coolant have raised in coolant tank.Coolant level was at cold engine between min and max and after car started idleing rough coolant level was above the max level, but temp on dash was shown normal level.

      When I scanned for codes I only got two codes:
      ECM-6110 Engine cooling fan (FC) low-speed - Signal missing
      ECM-6120 Engine cooling fan (FC) high-speed - Signal missing

      That make sense since. I have a broken connector (found one in junkyard off of 850 and need to solder the wires and reconnect it).

      Any suggestions?

      The fcp kit has waaaay too much stuff you donít need.

      However itís also missing an important updated banjo bolt that you most certainly do need!

      31325709 is the 4th revision of the intake manifold PCV banjo bolt and what it does is add a check valve that closes under boost so you donít pressurize the crank case. Also need 2x 11994 washers when you replace it. Easiest way to swap it is to drop the alternator and leave the intake manifold on.

      Did you do another compression test while the engine was warmed up?

      Question, What is the difference between Volvo Banjo Bolt - Genuine Volvo 973950 vs. 31325709. Being cheap I got 973950.
      Also the PCV kit I got was https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/vol...-turbo-v70t100. Should I return some of the parts?

      You can't return part of a kit.

      Here's a tip: never buy fcp kits because they come with a ton of crap you don't need. Also it's more expensive than buying everything individually LOL

      The only issue I have is the slipshod quality of some of the odds n' ends they give you. Like the hose clamps in the PCV kit are just trash, but the kit description is handy to open up everything I actually want to order quickly LOL

      973950 is just a banjo bolt. No different than what you already have. Its just a hollow bolt. 31325709 is a check valve with positive retention.

      @ScottishBrick, Thank you, I will return the one I got and get the one you recommended, since I will be returning coolant tank to them as well.

      Id return it. You want all genuine volvo rubber parts its not all the same compound and aftermarket pcv stuff dissolves in a few months. Not good.

      The main heated pipe that connects the breather box, the thermostat housing, the intake manifold and plumbs back into the intake before the turbo is the likeliest to be gummed up but can be cleaned out unless the plastic bits are broken.

      FCP's "kits" are a good guide to what you need to start with but you should really get VIDA so you have the catalogue, diagnostics, repair instructions ect.

      Since I will be returning some of the parts I will return this kit and reorder individually as I have time to work on PCV. Thanks

      Update: I fired up the car tonight and seems like coolant is in the oil. Take a look at the photo of the oil fill cap.IMG_0299.jpgIMG_0301.jpg.
      Am I correct? Or is it some kind of condensation since car ran for few minutes in cold weather. Also seems like coolant level raised when engine got worm. When engine was cold the level was between MIN and MAX. When I unscrew cap from coolant reservoir tank there was a pressure buildup. Is it worth spending my time on it or find an another engine? Or am I F##[email protected]? Please help.

      I mean you bought a non-running 212K mile 20 year old car, I wouldn't say you're ****ed, hopefully you went into it assuming it would be a money pit from the start!

      Hard to say just based on the cap, could be condensation, maybe not. Best thing to do is to drain the oil and see how it looks. If it comes out like milk well, there's your answer.

      You should also check compression warm or even better do a leakdown test on all cylinders.

      Yep, drain the oil. Head gasket might be shot, If you need to do an engine swap its not as hard as it might seem. I did mine on the S70, it was my first time ever and wasn't too difficult.
