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.
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?
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).
Spark Plug Replacement, Volvo Tune Up - Auto Repair Series
Spark plug replacement: 30 to 90 minutes.
This video will show you how I replace spark plugs on a I5 turbo Volvo engine. This will be the same for
almost all of the 850, S70, 960, V90, V70 Volvo's built prior to 2001 and
many after. The torque value of the plugs is Tightening torque 18.4 ft.
lbs. +/- 3.7 ft. lbs. (25 Nm +/- 5 Nm). The proper gap for the turbo cars is 0.03, non-turbo models is 0.028. The only reason I feel
comfortable with tightening the plugs 1/2 turn past snug is because they
have crush washers.
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.
