    You keep mentioning engine mount inserts. I assume you mean the 4 subframe bush inserts.

    Jon, what are you doing with the solid strut mounts you took off? Would you sell them to me if they are going spare?

    Hi chaps, I posted this http://www.vpcuk.org/forums/showthre...689#post813689

    but think maybe you (more focused guys might have an idea). Book into Volvo, but they want 120 quid just to open the bonnet. Mate seems to think it could be a gummed up EGR valve. Do the petrol V70's have these? Can't find with a Google.

    other post has me saying this:-

    "this came on yesterday half way to Donington Park from Surrey. After I'd looked it up on getting there, relieved it was not some major engine thing.

    Not had this on either of previous 2 Volvo's in several 100k and current R has only 90 on it. Any idea's what it will likely be?

    Cat (can't see it at 90k), O2 sensor? Performance no different (well not that I could see towing)."

    Then "Ah ok, trip to the dealer then!

    Might explain the very intermittent cutting out I have had since buying the car 2k miles ago.

    On a run this might only happen once or twice the whole journey, but just driving along it will hesitate for about a second / maybe 1.5, like a spark cut of a blocked injector. So in frequent I have not gotten too annoyed about it, but on towing yesterday it was doing it way more (more load on the engine), and on filling up 2/3d's of way to where I was going the light then came on after filling it up. I'm thinking injector or maybe a coil pack? Anyway will book it on."

    Just feel I'll be arse raped at Volvo..... and if it is something easily done myself.....

    Get it diagnosed properly with VIDA. Otherwise you'll throwing money into a pit. Could be an air leak, broken vacuum hose, or the TCV is dying.... or anything else....

    Popped round to Anthony's (and it was happening a fair bit on that run), other times it might not happen once. Plugged it into the Vida, Fuel Pressure Sensor.

    Many thanks Anthony. Order a Vida yesterday.

    I was going to get via PFS where I get most bits but the chap there Jamie, is very good at saying if you are wasting your money on a certain part. i.e. the official price for that OEM part from them is 216 quid!! He said to look about for other places to get the same thing, with a few pointers (and in the end taking the Turbo pipe and beauty cover off to get at the Bosch no. on it (8699449) I got it from http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BOSCH-0261....c100011.m1850

    Getting cambelt for it as looks like not been done (90kmiles), Anthony said this should be a 90k or 10 year which ever is soonest, which is why it was odd on going through all paperwork (and no sticker under bonnet) saying it had been done. But OEM package for this will go on in next week or 2. The reader did say one cam was out by5.8 degs (Anthony said tolerance was 6 degs), so will get this looked at when cambelt changed, maybe a tooth out(?) most likely a tooth out!? Might perk it up a tad if blob on.

    Tried the wheels I bought for my T5 (and did not let go with the car), new to me after refurb and new tyres (Goodyear Eagle F1's) 235/45/17's.

Size:  104.7 KB They "just" fouled the calipers front and rear, so will get some of those Eibach spacer I think Lee mentioned (5mm will get them easily clearing). Be interesting to see if they are a tad more compliant than the 18's (even on soft the damping on ridges and potholes is very Audi like (not that bad obviously!!)). Something for the winter.

    A quick calculation on what Volvo would have charged for the diagnosis of the hesitation. 120+ vat to just plug the reader in (then only if the hesitation had happened on the last run on the car, would it show up), then 216 for the part(!), then say 30 mins to fit (60 +vat). Equals 432. Why would ANYONE take their car to a Volvo main dealer...

    This will have actually cost me 60 quid (assuming you have the reader), which going forward I will have.

    Are you in the AA?

    If you are....do you have BRC (Breakdown repair cover)?

    If so, you could take your car to the dealer, relax.....have a coffee (latte) or 3!, read a newspaper and sit in all the new cars and breath in deeply the fresh smell of clean leather.....smiling to yourself that the AA will be paying for the cost of the repair, in full!
    All it will cost you is 35 excess! That's cheaper than your 60 and without you having to own a DTC reader

    Over the 7 years I've owned my R 4 different dealers have worked on it and only one of them was any good and that was Ray Chapman in Yorkshire. One dealer who was supposed to he an R specialist fitted the wrong spark plugs.
    Hence I have Vida and no more main dealers.
