No you have a problem! I've never owned more than 5 Volvos at a time! I see a V50 in the driveway...

The V50 came over for a wash. It is getting checked out by a family friend/Volvo tech tomorrow evening. It will need a lot of detailing, but It didn't feel like it ran poorly when I brought it over. Before and after wash

Let's see if the leaks are gone THIS time



Lower radiator hose wasn't quite right but It seems to be good now

Spal is working well in the cooler weather. If I keep the car it will get a medium profile fan before next summer

You do know that "VOLVO" stands for Various Oil Leaks Very Often, right?

mtd240: I suspect "the wives" have a super-secret forum to discuss whether or not they will let us buy Volvo parts.

In this case it's coolant, but still true

Drive the V50 yet? I think you will find it needs a tune, worth every penny

The current train of though is that it needs a software/firmware update (I don't know the difference), as well as a trans fluid/filter service. Waiting to see what the local pro says. I've passed your guys data along as well

They did the update on mine at the same time as the flush. I was talking about https://www.eurosporttuning.com/auto...u-upgrade.html they used to sell this with an intake and exhaust as a package, really wakes the car up. I added DO88 intercooler, 3" downpipe with racing cat, and some smaller stuff. Just don't ever try the stage 3 software, I had about 10 revisions and it never worked right.

A local friend hooked me up with a coin tray for my 740, so I fixed (and then cut up ) the dash trim to fit the tray a little further back.
