Question about Volvo V70

1 Answer

Ref: AC system on 1998 volvo V70. OK when first switched on but eventually starts blowing warm air.(after about 5 minutes) If I turn it off for a few minutes and then on, it works OK for a while. It has been regassed last week, but no improvement. It appears to cycle off but then doesn't come back on. Its the version with ECC. Thanks, Barry. ps about to try replacement control unit and little motorised sensor behind dash. Is that a good idea or not!

Heater/ac blower will not shut off when turning ignition off 2004 volvo v70 without removing 30amp fuse. then after reinstalling 30 amp fuse blower doesn't want to come back on


These car have a feature that runs the fan for a few minutes after you turn off the car to dry out any moisture in the A/C coils to prevent smells.

Does the fan turn off after about 5 minutes?

Why does my 1998 v70 have no power until warm


Check your transmission fluid level. When transmission fluid warms up it expands allowing the transmission to work again. Fluid may need changed and the filter also.

How to get AC to blow cold all the time on my 2000 Volvo v70?


You'll need to have someone check the refrigerant charge with a manifold gauge.
If the low-pressure side is lower than it should be but the high-pressure side is normal or showing higher than it should, your orifice tube may be clogged.
Seriously, start by having the refrigerant pressures checked.

Hey, i have a problem with a 1998 Volvo V70 diesel.Car can't blow hot air , and at the winter is getting really cold inside.What i'm sure about is that my thermostat is ok. My radiator is ok, liquid ok, ...


Did you recently do any cooling system work? The cooling system is pressurized and in your case it might have air in it. There is a bleed screw for the system, but I do not know where it is. But, let the engine warm up to the half way mark on the instrument cluster. Then try squeezing the upper and lower radiator hoses a few times. Does not have to be simultaneously. Wear gloves because the radiator hoses will be hot. Also be careful, not to come in contact with the fan, as this could cause serious bodily injury.

1998 Volvo V70 A/C Intermittent


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.
