      Itís auto so you can leave the trans and AG in the car. Or yank with the driveline and engine bolted together it will all fit out the top.

      Any 01+ t5 engine is the way to go, 03+ gets some inprovements. P1 single piece exhaust manifold gasket. Japanifold or R manifold. Probably needs an 18t CHRA while itís out. Never easier to do pcv banjo bolt, control arms and heater core junction. If you do all the work yourself and go full bluebox on all parts youíre looking at about $1500 all in.

      I will do an oil change this weekend and see how it looks. I suspect it could be a condensation on oil cap as I start the engine for short period of time. Dipstick looked clean no milkshake.

      You could send an oil sample off for analysis to be totally sure if the oil isn't milky, but a leak down test is a really good idea. If you have an air compressor you should be able to rent one from an auto parts store. Or there are plenty of enthusiasts down there who I'm sure could lend a hand/tools.

      Will is absolutely right in terms of refresh cost. I spent about that (maybe a little less but I haven't done suspension stuff yet) on my 850 swap. The only thing I have to add is to not remove only the engine out of the top. Especially if it's your first experience pulling an engine I'd either remove engine & trans out the top or drop the subframe (dropping the subframe would be my recommendation). I bent a flexplate and I would have had to pull the engine again if I didn't realize it when I did.

      Today, I removed cleaned turbo intake hoses and reinstalled them back. They were dirty outside and there was little oil inside. l took out the Turbo Hose with PTC nipple and it was clean as I'm planing to do PCV repair, but I did glove test again and it passed, so I may hold off until I get the car running smooth.

      Someone suggested to replace ECT. ECT and thermostat has been replaced and no luck same symptoms. Re-scanned for codes and again no codes.

      Did XeMODeX ETM test by their flow chart troubleshooting and all passed. Do not think there is the ETM problem, perhaps MAF could be the issue, but again no codes?

      Also, I think that there was a condensation on the oil cap as to day car ran for 15 minutes fine and oil cap was clean.

      What else can I try?

      I let it run for 10 minutes until stalled and cap was clean, so it is defiantly condensation. Oil cap and dipstick are clean no milky stuff on it. By the way here in Chicago we had a nice weather in last few days.
      Tested coils last night I did unplug coils one at the time when car was running and when I did that engine was performing worst so seems like coils are good. I was told that PO replaced the spark plugs and coils 10k miles ago.

      Looked under the car and fuel filter looks like it was replaced.

      One observation. after car wormed the temp gauge arrow stayed in the middle 3 o'clock position on the dashboard and the coolant almost reached to the top of the coolant tank. Before replacing thermostat I drained 2 qts of coolant and when I re added the level stays above the MAX all the time. Is it normal ?

      Also when car was choking/puffing after worm up is saw smoke coming out of dipstick, but glove test passed. PCV?

      Run Vida for fault codes again, see what comes up, and then run it again. I've had fault codes not show up on initial diagnostic check and then surface with another scan. I bet your frustrated but don't give up. If all else fails,,,, there has to be a decent indy shop in Chi-town that you can pay to diagnose and you fix yourself. There is supposedly a great place in Schaumburg "Swedish Car Specialists" But i know that might not be doable. You could always call them, explain your symptoms and ask to pay them for their phone diagnostic time. All they can say is no.

      Are you saying the coolant level was changing while it was running?

      Well, before I drained 2 qrts or so of coolant to change the thermostat and ECT, level was at MAX after refill and engine warmup about 10 min the coolant almost spilled out of the tank. So, seems like there is no coolant circulation?

      Will rescan today or tomorrow and report back. Swedish Car Specialists are located about 17 miles from my house, but I have not registered the car yet so technically I should not drive it (tow will be $150) so mind as well register it.

      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).

      Zoinks, I'm going to be working on PCV this weekend and I have a question. How difficult is to do this job from underneath the car? Is it do able? I'm sure it is easier when the engine is out. Anything to watch for? Is this the kit I need? Can I pickup new pick up tube from FCP? Is it new plastic design 30650552, and that may require 2 different length bolts 98277 x 2 (7x25mm).

      Thanks in advance.

      Not sure how you would do pcv from under the car unless you are cleaning the block passages?

      I meant, that I will do PCV from the top and at the same time I was thinking of taking down the oil pan and replace o-rings. Sorry not to be clear.

      Yes you can remove the oil pan from underneath. Use a cardboard box and draw a rough sketch of the oil pan. Remove a corner bolt and push it into the box and label it #1 and its approx location say "drivers side front" Then continue to remove the remaining bolts in order around the pan and push them into your box. There are a lot of different lengths to these bolts and getting them mixed up would be a nightmare. Not sure on the bolt sizes for the new pick up tube but you can call FCP. And don't forget to order the aenerbolic (cant remember how to spell it) purple pan sealant for when reinstalling. But chase down those Vac leaks first. Google homemade smoke testers.

      anaerobic. it's pink.

      I've never had a problem keeping the pan bolts straight just throwing them in a box or whatever. Really long ones all go on the port side, typicals in the middle, anything else weird on the starboard side.

      Pickup seals are definitely worth doing. Clean the PCV block passage while you're in there. Also update the oil pickup tube.

      Hello! I had a couple of exams to study/take before I could get back to Volvo stuff. But it's just a really messy job when underneath the car, I'm sure there is a write up somewhere for it (https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/fo...ic.php?t=31236). But before you jump this deep I would get the engine running correctly first.

      If I were you I'd let it warm up, sputter out and then warm compression test it. Then I would rent a leak down tester from an autoparts store and perform a leak down test. There could be a multitude of reasons why you currently have low compression, (warped head, bad valve stem seals, trashed rings, blown head gasket) and I think you should chase down that reason first.
