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.

How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight
turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right
turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are
easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of
what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball
joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I
often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't
know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue
doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake
the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If
you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check
out this article I wrote on the topic.

Hi Jay VanGorden here, we're going to work on Joe Coppola's 2003 S60 non-turbo, today we're going to replace the
First thing you want to do, this is non-turbo so there's no Boost pipe in your way. You have this front
cover here, you're going to want to remove these T30 torx, so go ahead and
do that now.
Before your guys actually remove the spark plugs, make sure you're working
on a cool engine, ideal time to do this is first thing in the morning.
What I like to do is mark your coils, obviously this is number 1, 2, 3, 4,
Next you're going to want to take off the bolts for your coils. They're
What some people do is that take off the connector and the coil separately,
just to save time, take them off together. Sometimes this will happen, the
boot will separate, just make sure you put it back.
Get your spark plug socket, and remove your plugs. These plugs have been
there for a while, see how worn down they are, look at the electrodes
covered in white, needs to be changed.
We're going to replace his with a Genuine Volvo set. When you're putting
these in, first thing you want to do is compare what you took off to what
you're putting in. These look exactly the same. Always check out the
condition of the tops, make sure the grounds aren't crushed in. I like to
thread these in by hand, you don't want to cross-thread these.
Now that they're all threaded in, go ahead and tighten them. A lot of you
are wondering, "is there a torque spec for these?" There is, best way to
go about it is just tighten it by hand, feel for it.
Alright the plugs are all in, they're tight. Time to put our coils back
Next up, now that your coils are in, make sure they're all pushed down nice
and snug. Put your coil bolts back in.
Before you put this cover back on, you want to make sure that none of the
wires or wire looms are going to get pinched by that cover. A lot of times
people leave the wires out, put the cover back on, and when they tighten
down the cover it pinches some of these wires. You get a miss fire, you
get a check engine light, car may not run correctly. So just do a manual
inspection, make sure the wires are fine. Looks like these are. Go ahead
and put that cover back on.
If you guys have any questions feel free to give me a call 877-634-0063 I'm
extension 218 thanks for watching.
