Question about 1998 Volvo V70

1 Answer

Steering groans and smoking from rear of engine

I just bought a 1998 Volvo V70 Wagon with 154000 miles on it. One of the problems I have had with it is the appearance of a groaning noise whenever I turn the steering wheel, followed by a release of smoke (smells almost like over-heated coolant) from an interlink of some kind at the back (side?, since it sits sideways) near the heat shield but inside the engine compartment. I don't know what that part is or I would properly describe it. Apologies. Any advice, perhaps in identifying this component would be appreciated. Dave

It sounds like there is a leak in the power steering and the fluid is dripping on the exhaust. To quiet the noise and avoid further wear and tear on your power steering, try adding some fluid. To find and repair the leak you'll probably want a qualified mechanic to have a look at the system.

Your heater core is leaking. The smell and smoke is from the coolant evaporation.

SOURCE: 1998 Volvo V70 ignition switch turn 360 degrees

This is the problem with the ignition switch.
The lock cylinder into which the key is inserted, and the electronic switch that sits just behind the lock cylinder are not in proper alignment with each other.
Probably before you plan to replace the switch you can take the switch of and put it back in, many a times that will fix the alignment issue.

Thanks
Kevin

If your car has the xenon headlights, it might be a faulty xenon ballast/regulator module. You car has daytime running lights so they are on at a low power setting all the time.

Check the power steering fluid level. If it is low, check for a leak.

It is a connection for the rear wiper/washer on the V70 wagon. The same dash harness is used for both models so that connector just hangs there on the S70.

I cannot determine the chassis number of my 1998 volvo v70 glt wagon vehicle. How do i find out what it is?


1 try looking in the bottom of the windshield near the wipers there could be a small window window with your chassis number in it.
2 if not it is common on Volvo to be in the engine compartment on top or on the inside of the left wing possible near the battery if fitted up front.

Where is fuel filter on 1998 Volvo S70 non turbo?


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 removable 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. Note arrow on filter for correct fuel flow. Good luck and hope this helps and no smoking please LOL

The rear rotors on my Volvo v70 wagon are rusty! What can cause both rear calipers to stop working. Car has 70,000 miles on it.


your rear caliper adjustment is made by using the parking brake,if you don't use it on a regular basis it can cause the rear brakes to not work properly or at all.you need to use the parking brake regularly to avoid this.you may try working the parking brake repeatedly to try and adjust the rear brakes,if that works you may notice your brake pedal is higher or firmer.
