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.

How to replace an O2 Sensor and save money.
I show you how to replace your O2 Sensor. This is being performed on a 1997
Chevy Tahoe. Automotive oxygen sensors, colloquially known as O2 sensors,
make modern electronic fuel injection and emission control possible. They
determine if the air fuel ratio exiting a gas-combustion engine is rich
(with unburnt fuel vapor) or lean (with excess oxygen).
Volvo S60 2.4 TURBO exhaust sound & acceleration
The car sounds very nice on low revs. Sometimes you can hear the
Subaru-like turbo sound. Volvo claims
that the acceleration of the car should be around 7.5 sec from 0 to 100 kph
(62 mph). It's 2.4T 200 HP engine with an automatic gearbox and is very
well-equipped. By the way - the 5-speed gearbox started making problems at
around 120.000 kms (the oil in the gearbox hasn't been changed at all I
suppose, guys from Volvo told us there's no need to do that... So that's
the result.), there was a problem with the third gear. I'm not going to say
that the car was unreliable but it definitely wasn't problem-free. However,
there were only minor issues, nothing serious at all. Fantastic seats, I
liked the steering but hated the loud suspension which had troubles dealing
with our polish poor-quality roads.
Bad control arm bushing? Clicking sound. Volvo S80
Does anyone know what this sound is?
2004 Volvo S80. Happens whenever we engage the gear.
I am thinking its the lower control arm bushing, they look bad. But then
there's a plastic housing connected to the front wheel. When I grab it with
my hand, the clicking feels like it may be coming from there. Any idea?
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.
2014 BMW X5 vs Volvo XC60 Racetrack Mashup: 2 Hot Laps but only 1 Winner
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 BMW X5 and the 2015 Volvo XC60 T6 are
both tall crossovers that don't compete against each other but they are
similar in one very important way: they both use 2X the usual amount of
forced induction. In plain English that means that the 2014 BMW X5 is twim
turbocharged while the Volvo is Super turbocharged. So which is faster in around a racetrack? In part 2 of
this super-turbo versus turbo-turbo
match Mashup Nathan and Roman find out the fun way....by seeing which one
is faster around a racetrack.
