Hi, this is not hard. the valve run into the valve cover and the price for a pro to fit should be around 50 dollars tops. i would do it for 30.

    well, when dealing with the dealership they will advise you to run a diagnostic scan and if anything comes up, they will repair it. this will usually run up the bill. i would go to a local well known mechanic shop that is certified. if this car is under warranty, i will, in this case, advise to take to the dealership.

    That *00 dollar price is extremely inflated in my view. WOW

    A lot of what the dealer will charge is attributed to inflated labor charges.

    this part only cost 19 dollars. that dealer installation price is all labor.

Where is the knock sensor

It is on the side of the Cyl. Block underneath the Intake Manifold just to the right of the PCV System. While you have it apart I would suggest replacing the PCV System entirely.

Where is the PCV valve located on a 2001 VW Beetle Turbo, 1.8L?

All these answers are WRONG!!! The PCV valve isn't located anywhere near the valve cover but underneath the Intake manifold behind the secondary air pump. The PCV hose starts just to the right of the base of the Oil dipstick tube and leads to the right (driver side) to a rubber T. The PCV valve is actually inside this T. You have to unscrew the clamps and carefully pull out the old Plastic PCV insert/valve and replace it with a new one. Most of the time you will also have to replace the hoses since they will be full of sludge/crud and may have gotten brittle from the heat of the 1.8 engine. It is very difficult to access the PCV valve on the 1.8 engine and unless you have doublejointed hands you may need to remove the intake manifold to get to it. But some have done it without removing the intake manifold. Here is a link to some pictures of the location of the PCV valve which in case is an insert residing in that rubber T.

Timing belt felll off on highway,will there be a lot of damage 2000 volvos-80

Volvo recommends for Volvo S80, changing the timing belt every 105,000 miles. Needless to say, they are pretty religious about this now.
The B20, B21, B23, and B230 engines are non-interference engines, meaning that the camshaft can be rotated independently of the crankshaft and no damage will result to the engine. That is, if the timing belt breaks, the valves will not hit the pistons; the engine will simply stop.
On the other hand, the B234 16-valve engines and any of the other Volvo multi valve engines are interference engines. Loss of the timing belt in these engines will result in severe or fatal engine damage.
Your car might be fitted with:
2.8L (VIN 90, 6th & 7th digit, B6284T eng, turbo)
2.9L (VIN 94, 6th & 7th digit, B6294S eng)

Trans code number automatic tranny 88 volvo

Hello. i have owned many 740's, 240's, 122's, and 850's. I have done my fair share of transmission swaps. The transmission tag is located right above the trans-oil pan and directly below the od seloind on the drivers-side. if your volvo 740 is a non-turbo, the transmission is AW-70L, if it is a turbo-model then it is AW-71L. Good luck :)

Are ceramic pads and slotted rotors worth the extra money? I need to replace t-stat in my 2000 Volvo S70 GLT SE non-turbo, what temperature rating do i want for the new t-stat? Does this car have a PCV...

The ceramic pads are worth the extra money, due to the increase in the quality of the pads, slotted rotors, not so much. Original equipment is a 192 degree thermostat. If the car tends to run a little hot, a lower temperature one maybe considered. There is no PVC.

It sounds like sucking air

Sounds like it's time for some basic maintenance. Some of the emission controls require changing. More specifically, the PCV. Positive Crankcase Valve.

At 60,000, and 100,000 miles this are supposed to be changed, but conditions may require a change sooner.
