    Thanks for the reply.

    I had a year 2000 C70 T5 which had a very similar issue. The clamp on the lower intercooler hose was past it, so sorting that fixed the issue.

    2006 V70 T5 Reduced Engine Power.

    Been up to Northumberland for the weekend and done just shy of 700 miles, 29.2 average MPG.....6 speed manual.
    However, 50 miles or so in to the journey and whilst accelerating, the car suddenly...

    Thanks!!

    I think that we get a lot of car for the money in most cases, and we're just addicted to them. If my local Volvo indy hadn't have brought the R in, then I probably wouldn't have one now....

    LOL, OK.
    I'm at 3 x v70's now so no more for me either.

    Thanks Adrian.
    You mean because of fuel prices that you wouldn't have one now?

    So my local indy brings a few cars in from Japan and he mentioned the flash green V70 R to me. When it arrived, i took a video for someone else who was looking for one, but all of the time I really...

    You might be making a good point there. The garage called me on Friday to tell me that the EGR clean had been done, but that I have some sort of ECU issue.

    Let me tell them what you say above and...

    Holy thread resurrection.

    I have exactly these issues with my D5 185. Using a litre of oil every 200 miles, constantly in and out of limp due to the soot filter full.

    Just spoken to the garage and the DPF was totally blocked. They sent it away to be professionally cleaned so that I have a genuine Volvo part as opposed to a cheaper after market part.

    They've...

    OK, the garage have had my car for 8 full days now and I still don't have her back. I can see that she has been MOT'd as that runs out 24/6/21, so that's great. However, I would like her back in the...

    I've been buying the Castrol Edge 0w30 A5/B5 oil and it's costing me 2p/mile in oil never mind the poor mpg as well. I seriously think that my C70 T5 costs me less to run.

    Bracing myself for a large bill.

    My V70 D5 185 is at my local Volvo Indy for the MOT etc. She needs at least 4 new tyres, but more worryingly is a possible turbo issue, DPF issue and the brakes.

    She has been using 1 litre of oil...

    I seem to have an intermittent reversing light now, but I need someone to reverse the car whilst I watch, or go and find a good reflection somewhere.
