did you ever check your transmission oil? there is some bits of oil in the expansion tank, dont you think there will be some water in the transmission?
Excellent video; gave me all i needed to replace parts in my 1998 V70. We just clocked 300k mi. as well! Woohoo! :-)
Love the build. Keep posting
Whats the body kit you got on their
did you need to bleed the air out of the system?
I usually much prefer videos with the person explaining what they're doing, but this one was so well done and especially with the editing to speed everything up, I have to say, it is a great video! Thank you so much!
Those super touring foglights are hard to find
My S70 98 according to the OBD2 scanner has a range about 165F-210F. While driving 165F (74c). The temperature gauge on the dashboard actually shows the difference. While in traffic or idling: around 216F (102c). It's about 51F (11c) degree difference. I have already replaced thermostat and sensor once (about 3 years ago). Back then the car was running really cold due to the thermostat being stuck. All parts OEM. Until recently the temperature gauge on the dashboard was always on 3pm. Interestingly the symptoms showed up after timing belt job. Water pump was replaced too btw. Unfortunately I had to outsource the job to the local shop, but I don't see them messing around with the thermostat housing??? At first I thought that the car needs to 'burp' but 3 months later nothing changed. Coolant's level is ok. I have even replaced the coolant. What is the normal range of the temperature while driving and idling? Anyone checked with the OBD2 scanner?
What front lip that? Shit nice
I have oil in my coolant but it still drives good so I’m assuming it’s the same problem as this
What kind of spoiler is that?
A very nice 413, would have been nice to see it on the move and the difference the Swift Gti engine makes over the standard engine.
Switch cams at 4600rpm and you will get much flatter curve.
200whp!!! And those are the parts you're using? That's insane!
Can coolant get into the engine oil due to this or only oil into coolant?
how much did it sell for?
Nissan for speed bro believe that!
I bypassed it on my Ford Figo but I don't know the effects in the near futur
Thank you soo much life saver.
Wish there was a video like this available for the V50 1.8 2005. Need to change mine, but do not know how. Just found some tutorials on how to remove the airbox (where the thermostat is located behind it) and have a video on how to remove the thermostat, but I want to know the whole process in one video. Great vid by the way! Loved it.
