I have a 1998 Volvo V70 XC AWD wagon, with 146000 miles. Recently a significant shuddering vibration comes up from under the center console, only at very low turning speeds. It stops once the car starts going straight. Also it doesn't happen in reverse. My Volvo mechanic describes it as a torque transmission problem from front to rear, in the drive shaft, and to just live with it! It's a very disturbing noise when it happens! Comments, please.

Have you also checked the fitting of the gear shift bar , if that is worn or not fitting correctly due to banging somthing off the road it may not be sitting flush. The Gear shift is one of the parts which goes under that area.
Unless the Volvo Tech is aware of this issue from their experience.

the first thing you want to check is whether or not it has a heavy drag at the wheel caused by wrong pads, sticking caliper, improperly installed parts. Lift the car and try to turn the wheel. Just because they are certified does not mean they know everything. I'm certified too, but I also have experience with euros and the quality of parts that need to be used. If inferior quality parts are used it will cause this. It can create all kinds of problems and noises. Take it back until they get it right. Ask them what brand of parts they use. Let me know and if they give you any grief, contact me and I will advise accordingly.

XC AWD. Why is check engine light still on?


Why did you replace the 02 sensors? These monitor the amount of air/fuel in the exhaust. If the engine is running too rich/lean the code will return regardless of replacing these sensors. What code did you get?

Volvo V70 xc AWD '98 - fuel filter change


Brandonlo168,

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.
