I Did A Tune-Up On My Volvo V70R Spaceball And Unlocked TWICE The Horsepower... Sleeper Wagon!

When I bought the car, it ran and drove... But just barely. Turns out all it needed was a tune-up and its a whole new car!

Come along today as I perform a basic 'tune-up' on my manual 2005 Volvo V70R! I purchased what is essentially a 'stage 0' kit for the car which consisted of: spark plugs, ignition coils, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, and a cabin filter. Check out what a difference these items make!



Thanks for watching!

    Volvo is great about any issues that come up with their cars, my 02 v70 2.4 (na/auto) had the fuel pump issue and it was resolved for free even though it is a nearly 20 year old car now. Gotta love shaggin wagons.

    Hi there, Mr Elliot Alvis! I have a request: please skip the background music - look at Hoovies and Car Wizard how they use it very rarely; it's a nuisance for me and possibly for others. When you talk, don't play music. Let silence be a bridge between your comments - you have a good narrators voice and clear pronunciation, trust that ability. See the above mentioned as good examples. You're doing fine, and the Volvo V70R is a very good choice of car for interesting videos, I like it! You said earlier, I believe, that you read every comment. I would much appreciate if you gave it a thought and acted upon it! I drive a Volvo V70 2006 myself, great cars, greetings from its native country by the way - I lived for many years in Gothenburg, Sweden and my younger brother actually worked at Volvo, developing exhaust systems at their science department. Yours, Hans Sjöström, Helsingborg, Sweden

    Nice video sir, liked and subscribed, I however want to point out a few suggestions to your video/s "no hate intended" 1. I only mention this because of the shop you're in, but I think you could afford to gap your sparkplugs. 2. Torque specs are rarely used around a car and unnecessary for the most part if you just use common sense, however sparkplugs I'd recommend you torque to spec 3. I'm sure you probably cleaned the whole airbox, but that's really important while changing air-filter, usually a lot of dirt in the whole box and connected tubing 4. I haven't checked all your videos, but as for this one you're doing a test after your maintenance, would be nice however to see a comparison since you feel like it's making double the horsepower compared to before.

    no carbon chunkies in the oil? then the pcv gasket needs to be changes as the oil cooler line is full of it and maybe the ccv as wel and needs to be replaced.

    Many of us that have worked on a lot of Volvos don't recommend NGK iridium plugs. I wouldn't pull them out but if you start to see any misfires put in oem Volvo plugs or just a good set of coppers. Loving these videos.

    Well done. You need to do a cooling system flush plus new fluids in transmission, transfer case, and differentials. Too often those are forgotten until something breaks. Don't forget the tires, either. Treat separation does a lot of damage

    Nice that you are doing the overdue maintenance. I would test and keep the newer coil pack as a spare just in case you need to troubleshoot in the future. But I would never put NGK plugs in a Volvo. I've always used Bosch plugs in my Volvo cars. I would recommend getting the car repainted first before bringing it to the dealer for quotes as they might just look at the car's condition and just give you a crazy quote.

If you will allow me, next time you change a fuel filter on a modern car, do ignition on only for 15 seconds, rinse, repeat, and let the filter fill that way. It'll save on the starter, battery etc. Can't wait for the paint correction(s). Thanks for the fun. Nice shop/studio BTW.

    The whiteblock timing belt (im actually in the process of finishing mine today) is actually not that hard, it is just very intimidating because the whiteblock is an interference engine, which means if timing is off you'll pound the valves with the pistons, you just have to mind the timing marks, and the water pump gasket, my gasket failed because of the plastic shroud got tightened down between the pump and the block. The job costs around $1000 and the shop will usually pull the engine to do it.
