    No bricks to be found at junkyards!!!

    So I was wondering why I am not getting any more alerts from Pull-apart here in Atlanta. The reason is that there are no Bricks at any of the 4 locations in GA and haven't been for a while now. I've never seen this in my 20 years of owning Volvos. It's was pretty cool to be able to get small...

    The vovlo gods has been good to me!

    I was cleaning out my shed last week and I just realize that I haven't done anything on my 92 740 in almost 9 months with the exception of regular oil changes and filter change. I guess I've gotten so used to something breaking so often. I have to admit though that I've replaced tons of parts...

    Injectors cleaning time? Maybe?

    In my 20 years of owning 5 Volvos, I've never had the injectors clean in any of them. I'm contemplating having them clean soon on my 940 but I'm not sure it's necessary to have them done even though it's a 30year old car...:oops: What are the symptoms of dirty injectors if any?

    What's the Best upgrade You've done on your brick?

    I finally got my Ecodes from Scandix last week. OMG, I don't know why I took so long to do it..It's worth every penny especially, having to drive to work at 5 AM every morning. You never realize how important having the correct headlights are until you HAVE the correct ones.:)

    I'm on my way to work this morning at 5 AM on HWY 985 in Atl. 10 min into my ride; my instrument panel begins to get dimmer and dimmer. The ABS lights come on, the radio cuts out, the headlights go dim.:grrr: So I pull off the road, grab my flashlight, pop the hood. Guess WHAT it was? The...

    Take your own advice!

    One of the spare parts that I advise people to have in our bricks is an RPM sensor. Yesterday my 92 740 wouldn't start in my driveway. I was running late for work, so I took the wife's car. Long story short, no tach movement which is a clue. It was the RPM sensor! When I got home I took it off...

    Idle problems

    I noticed when i turn my AC on there's a vibration and my car stalls almost everytime the compressor comes on.I understand that the AC will pull from the engine but it shouldn't have that great effect on the rpm like that. I replaced all the A\C bushings and there's still a vibration. The...

    Waterpump seal

    I could not figure out why my waterpump would leak for the second time in two years I think i've figure out why.. After very close examination, these are my findings. The Hepu seals and some other aftermarket seals seems to get very brittle and leaks.I also think the one from volvo has a rounder...
