Question about 2003 Volvo XC70
Would steering pump go out on 2000 volvo xc v 70 at 84k ? Said fluid was everywhere and needs to get new belt, battery and tie rod to the tune of 800.00 ? Can this be right ? Just bought the car for our kids so not familiar with Volvo repair costs. Thank you.
Never heard of the pump exploding... bursting one of the high pressure lines is more likely. new belt afterwards? sure. new battery? dont see how it could have harmed the battery. new tie rod? no way did this damage a tie rod.
replacing burst high pressure line 75.00 for parts
replacing belt 15.00 for parts
replacing power steering pump if needed no more than 150.00 for parts. thats 240.00 for parts... for the sake of argument lets double that for labor. 480.00
replace tie rod (in no way damaged by power steering pump) 35.00 to 125.00 depending on where you get it. installation cost about 75.00 (Tie rods can most often be adjusted to correct problem without having to replace them.
now, new battery (probably not related to the burst line) anywhere from 40.00 to 200.00 from autozone with free installation.

Simply hold down the button you want to use (there are 3 for up to 3 different garage doors) until the light flashes and keep holding it down. Now place the garage door opener up near the sun visor and hold it's button down until the light on the on button you are programming flashes. It is now programed. The other 2 are done the same way. Good luck. It took me a while to find the info, it's not in any Volvo manuals I could find.

The reason it is suggested to take it to the dealer is that the tranmission fluid is a synthetic. There is no serviceable filter on your transmission. For a drain and fill (3.5 Quarts) the fluid itself is about 70 bucks. To flush it is around 350-400 depending on where you take it. You can use a Mobil equivelant fluid ATF 3309 that has the same specs. Biggest thing to watch out for is to make sure it is filled THROUGH THE DIPSTICK TUBE, no where else. The dipstick is kind of hard to see but its there, right behind the grill, to the left of the air box.

The most common problem is either the blower motor or the speed control resistor. Both items can be accessed by removing the glove box and panel below it.
