Very thankful and grateful!
Had my tools in the car and a full size steelie! It was beautiful outside, shoulder was wide enough and I’m home safe and sound. Grateful I wasn’t going too fast when it happened. Also, my regular jack is jacked up..but the newly acquired vo had a good one which I threw in the trunk before I left the minneaple yesterday.

My other car is a wagon. This is a 2002 v70 2.4 t. so much to fix on this one..almost want to part it out and make money for my 99v70glt to get back in shape.
So far I know suspension is shot..bounces down the freeway, transmission struggles to shift but does..engine loses a lot of oil, needs brake pads and rotors..Allignment too.
Interior is pretty mint.

Added tracs button that I had picked from the scrapyard almost a month ago and forgot to install..apparently you don’t need a tune…the wire was in there already behind the plastic tab.

So fun twist to my life. I am like hey man, look at this hose here that we will be taking off on your car.. So i m pointing at cables under my hood, then i tap the small one/slightly tug at it.. and whoosh coolant, hot coolant in my face. It was pretty funny. Ok so the guy goes like i will let you install my new radiator ( strandberg warranty was 90 days so thats good) they may give me a refund, or in store credit.. ( new radiator that is now in my car was $120. They guy says he is now afraid of used ones so he will just buy another. So I maybe owe him like $120 on the day of the install. Also I saw the car that he will give me as payment. It is a white 200 V70 2.4T. Body is banging, but the tires are really worn, and it seems there may be soem steering parts needed or that kind of thing. I did not test drive, but man and his wife say car shakes pretty violently after 40mph. The tires were wire worn on the inside and bald on the outside.Said there is a bit of an oil leak. Still totally worth it. Next saturday, install and pickup

I remember thinking I still had a leak..but it was this super absorbent floor holding onto extra coolant from me having added 5 gal to a 2.5gal system. The bag was dry, but I kept finding a small puddle at my right foot. Turns out my foot was squeezing the spongy floor insulation. In my defense I couldn’t see that it was leaking into the space below the carpet. Now I know..now you know to look there if you’re losing coolant with no drips on the ground. I’ll try write something up some time. Also the smell is not great. Someone joked that its just as bad as drinking coolant. Car is aired out, dried..carpets washed and allowed to stay in the rain for an extra rinse. All is well now. #volvo,#v70

No more of this..coolant stopped leaking and the car has been fine for close to 2000 miles since.. #volvo, #v70

Looks pretty cool without the carpet..if you’re into that sort of thing.
