    Possible dumb question

    No, it's not normal. But it's an old car and old cars get problems caused by old age, neglect and wear. In this case i would try cleaning out the idle control circuit. You didn't mention the type of engine in your car but i suppose it has an idle control valve. You can try taking it off and...

    940 Lpt not making or barely making any boost

    hard-soldering = brazing?? not sure. BTW stock boost should be about 0,3-0,35bar (= 5psi?) and the turbo should start spooling from as low as 1700-1800rpm , all boost in at 2250rpm

    940 Lpt not making or barely making any boost

    2 physical defects are typical on high mileage B230FK: - big cracks in the hot side of the Mitsubishi td04-13C turbo. Waste gate side. It means the WG valve is never fully closed which is needed to start making boost. This never sets a check engine light because at no point exhaust gas is...

    So, many modern car engines use this cycle to run more efficient and get good mileage. I suppose they use variable cam timing for this. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atkinson_cycle I was wondering, could you setup the cam timing on a conventional NA engine like an 8valve redblock to do the same...

    740 electrical gremlins after installing LED head lights

    I have installed LED lights in the headlights of my 780. They work fine. But after doing that i sometimes (well, 50% of the time actually) have the warning light for a broken bulb light up on the dash. It will come on with the city/park lights, the low beams and high beams. All the time NO...

    740 quick Q about crank sensor

    I am stumped about the intermittent no-start situation of my 780 T16V. Once the engine starts it will keep on running. But sometimes , usually after i drove the car somewhere else, it refuses to start. Startermotor cranks at good speed. I can hear the fuel pump prime before cranking. Things i...

    780: seat height mods?

    I have owned and driven my 780 for a few months now and it's nice but there is one thing that is starting to annoy me slightly and that is the seat height of the drivers seat. I am 6ft2 and the car has a sunroof, even with the seat adjusted in the lowest setting possible i am still brushing my...

    S/V/C no balance

    FWD T5 nightmare: I just had the geartronic replaced. It shifts perfectly. But since this job was done the drivetrain vibrates when driving over 55, faster and it gets worse and worse I had the front wheels balanced > no improvement The vibration is definitely speed related, not engine rpm...

    My 2001 V70-T5 has an annoying idle problem only when the engine is hot. the idle will surge between 600-900rpm. Bloody annoying, specially on a car with a slushbox. here's the info: - the engine runs good, no CEL, but VIDA does point out that the VVT solenoid is faulty. - when cold it idles...

    S/V/C oscilating idle speed

    I have a V70 T5 geartronic my2001. When it's cold it idles just fine. But once warmed up it starts to oscilate between 600rpm and 900rpm when idling. R, N, D, P makes no difference. I have VIDA but OBD2 says everything is OK... no engine related errors stored. It drives OK (except when...

    S/V/C WG pre-load, how much?

    My P2 V70-T5 runs OK, no CEL but spoolup is kinda slow. I really need kickdown/3000rpm to feel serious boost. Annoying. Is this normal? The car just never feels like 250hp. When i had the 16T on the bench i noticed some cracks in the WG-port. Must be leaking exhaust gasses there. Enough to hurt...
