1998 Volvo V70 A/C Intermittent

98 V70 air conditioner works for 10 minutes then no more cold air. Shut A/C off for 15-20 minutes then back on and it will blow cold air for 10 minutes and then air turns warm again. Recharging system didn't solve problem.

    I checked the gap and it is in fact larger than .5 mm
    Do you have to remove the compressor to make the shim adjustment? Looks pretty tight in there.

    Thanks

I had exactly the same problem. When your engine is cold and off check the gap on your ac compressor with a feeler gauge, it should be between 0.3 and 0.5mm. If it is larger you need to re-shim which invloves undoing a nut on the end off the compressor and removing the clutch plate, then removing the appropriate shims (look like washers) then replace. The reason it blows warm after 10 minutes or so is because the ac compressor gets hot and the clutch gap gets too large for the electro-magnetic clutch to engage. Some people would say that you need a new compressor but all you need to do is a re-shim.

There may be a restriction in the plumbing of the air conditioning system that is making the high side pressure too high, thus shutting off the a/c for safety reasons.

Or, the refrigerant pressure on the low side is too low, caused by not enough r134a refrigerant in the system.

Heather blows intermittent cold air


It sounds like you need to go to the shop. the blend doors control the air flow, heat, and distribution. There are about 6 to 7 motors in all. They most likely need to be recalibrated. There is also a possibility the Climate Control Module Software will need to be upgraded. There is a small chance that there is a bad blend door motor that is crashing the communication link between the motors and the module.

Either way it goes only the dealer, or mabey a very heavily invested independent shop.

Hope this helps.

Volvo V70 xc AWD '98 - fuel filter change


Brandonlo168,

The fuel filter can be located under the carpeted cargo storage floor at the rear of the wagon. Remove the four 10mm bolts, remove the cover. You will then see a removeable plate to the right just behind the rear passenger seat. Fuel filter can be seen through hole in hole. Replaced from underneath wagon. Be sure to make sure lines are fully inserted onto filter. Check for leaks. No smoking, extinguisher handy. Note arrow on filter for correct fuel flow.
