    Bulb integrity light on, but no light out?

    The car is a 1986 745. The bulb integrity light is coming on when I apply the brake pedal, but none of the brake lights are out. The Bulb integrity light goes out when I turn on the headlights. I am not sure where to check, other than my current action: Inspect all the bulbs, sockets, and...

    90 740 ticking after new wheel bearings

    Replaced the front wheel bearing assemblies in my 90 740. Used correct torque specs, anti seize, etc. Made sure the heat shields are clearing the rotors...

    90 740 turbo died after WOT. Can't make boost now

    Car is a 1990 740 turbo. Rebuilt 15g, mbc, otherwise stock. Did a WOT pull last night and when it hit redline in 2nd gear, the car bucked a little and then lost power. Now the car will start and move, but will die immediately when it crosses from vacuum into boost. Had a little trouble...

    The O.G. Volvette (R.I.P. Bill Boyle)

    What RSI cam do I have?

    I was too legit. Too legit to quit.

    This is my dumping ground for whatever Volvo related content I feel like sharing Instead of making new threads for each DD :nod: Welcome to my current 745 daily driver: The 744 was such a good car to me over the years. For $1200 it rocked and had cold A/C. I thought it deserved some love, so...

    Steel vs Aluminum control arms. What should I do?

    1990 Volvo 740 Turbo. Cut prings (~1"lower) bone stock otherwise. It's time to do the bushing in the front suspension. As far as I can tell, the car has the original, aluminum lower control arms. The only available replacement is to buy the bushings individually, or buy a steel replacement...
