    About what year did coolant hoses get good?

    BMW ZF 8-speed automatic transmission oil change

    pros don’t use a scan tool or a temp gun they just wait two minutes and fill. the transmission will never reach 40c at idle unless you knock yourself on the oil pan and pass out

    best ratcheting combo wrenches

    3.2 engine bay is 900 pounds of stuff in a 1 pound bag. These things are bland and not enjoyable to work on, but you could do worse. Volvo is very good at doing some things, and luckily for you Ford got all their major and important tech.

    Apparently either SKF doesn't make their Bearings as good as they used to or RockAuto sold me a counterfeit.

    Longest life brake fluid for vehicle destined to get little maintenance.....

    Can a 2005 Volvo go 300K Miles easily?

    my s60r had the inside DRL where the high beams go on the euro models instead of that dumb motorized one. all cars of that era with DRLs programmed had marker lights and tails on, basically just disabled the high beams lol.
