Is it a vent to air or recirculating one. Also it depends on manufacture, some are quieter than others, higher boost pressure will also make it sound louder but other factors are involved with this so I should take advise from your local shop.

SOURCE: Volvo V70 xc AWD '98 - fuel filter change


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.

Fuel pump is not pumping at the right pressure is the second answer

Im stumped have a 08 superduty 6.4 just rebuilt the eng started eng has 10 psi oil pressure its a new oil pump every thing had breakin lube and the pressure releaf valve is all the way up,i have oil i

Sounds like there is wear elsewhere causing the drop in oil pressure. I thicker oil will raise the pressure but could also further damage the engine.

What releaf valve is under the oil filter chev 4.3 v6 4x4 s10

That is the filter bypass valve. If the oil filter plugs up then oil pressure opens the valve to let unfiltered oil back into the engine so it won't destroy the engine.

I have a 95 eagle talon tsi awd, when i push the hard and the boost gauge hits the top for a split second the car jerks. feels like something slips of engine loses power. also i had a stereo put in my car...

Replace your waste gate on the turbo charger. It may be weak and opening up before your at full boost, common to go bad after a few years from the heat of the turbo. Good luck and keep me posted.

Installing aftermarket bov

if ur not changing ur turbo DONT TUCH THE WASTE GATE OR ITS HOSES!!!!! that part is only to reroute the xsaust gazzes to slow the turbo when the throttle is closed, as for the BOV or blow off valve mount it somewhere on ur pipeing that goes to your INTAKE of the motor it is there so when ur throttle snaps closed when u come off the gas pedel to shift, the pressurized air from the turbo can go out and away from the throttle usaly after the intercooler and before the throlltle body if u got the room for it also depending on the install and turbo setup, and computer, the car might tend to stall (MABY!) Depending on what kind of air metering you car uses, will dictate which is the best form of BOV, whether recurculated, or vented.

As for placement, the best place is usually as close to the throttle body as possible, that way as soon as the throttle plate closes air is evacuated...but having said that if you are recirulating, its a bit more plumbing to get that to work right...but anywhere AFTER the intercooler is good... and for the vacume hose any free vacume nipple on the intake manafold u might find one with a rubber cap or somthing of a blocker, if no nipple is availble buya Y type fitting at an auto store to doubble a used one HOPE THIS HELPS
