Volvo S60 Spark Plugs & Upper Engine Mount Replacement
This is a brief video of how I changed the spark plugs and the upper engine torque mount on my 2003 Volvo S60 2.4T. I used Bosch Platinum spark plugs, as Bosch is the OEM spark plug provider for Volvo, and the Bosch Platinum is very similar in specs to the Volvo plug. The only big difference is the price (60$ vs. 15$). Also, older S60's without the new upper engine torque mount have a tendency to crack and fall apart over time. So instead of buying just a new rubber piece, I installed the re-engineered mount that Volvo came out with in 2005. The OEM mount is made by Hutchinson, and costs only about 45-50$. There is no real point in replacing the old rubber piece, as the price and labor involved to replace the old mount will probably be about the same as putting the new redesigned on in. Also, the information to complete this repair was found on http://www.alldatadiy.com/. As much as I love using a ripped off version of Volvo's VIDA, downloading repair manuals without getting constant error messages and having to do endless resets is worth getting Alldata.

Volvo Rough Idle Problems (ETM issues) - how to fix
If your Volvo has irregular idling or your car surges when slowing down, it
may be your ETM. This short video shows the symptoms, how to clean the
unit, and the results. Cleaning ETM's takes simple tools, off the shelf
cleaner, and about 1.5 hours. Sure beats a $400 cleaning job from the
dealer for a $1500 new unit. These instructions are for a 2001 S80.
2006 Volvo V70 R on the way home.mov
I tried an inexpensive setup: Pocket point-n-shoot camera mounted to tripod
in the back seat of my car. Two of the legs are extended to the rear
passenger foot well; the third leg is collapsed and resting on the center
rear seat cushion (towel folded to prevent denting the leather). Then I
used a simple, 1" ratcheting nylon strap to secure it to the handy tie-down
anchors just in front of the rear seat cushions. Viola! A rather solid
2014 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design Polestar - WR TV POV Test Drive
Today we set our sights on this Swedish sports sedan from a brand that's
perhaps been best known for its focus on safety in the past, but now looks
to be making a run at nabbing some sales away from the performance
divisions of automakers like Mercedes Benz and BMW.
Slotted between the standard S60 T6 and the hot-blooded, limited production
S60 Polestar, the S60 T6 R-Design sports a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder motor that
outputs 325 horsepower and 354lb-ft of
torque, which routes the power to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic
transmission. This combination gets the S60 T6 R-Design to 60mph from a
standstill in five seconds flat.
The S60 T6 R-Design also gets uprated suspension bits including stiffer
bushings, beefier sway bars and monotube dampers, and it rides half an inch
lower than the standard S60. Inside, special R-Design sport seats, aluminum
inlays and sport pedals round out the package.
