You would think the owner's manual would have this information in it but it doesn't. Where do you get 163 to 226 and any idea of cost? Coupled with the dire fuel economy of 30-35mpg on a good day - thanks but no thanks. Where do you get 163 to 226 and any idea of cost? But its Geartronic, Petrol, almost 3Litre engine and heavy 56 plate, only done 4000 miles and in navy blue. Even drove like this in my V70 T5 classic. I looked at the other V70's- the 2.
I can't speak for the 226 Upgrade, only for the 163 vs 210. Okay - so my belief at this time is. Just click on engine tuning and the figures will be displayed. Take all those claimed figures with a pinch of salt anyway and note that the torque figure they claim to increase it to is a maximum and the figure Volvo quote is a minimum over a specific rev range, the standard maximum is far higher. My Haynes manual says the coolant capacity is 12. I want to replace the coolant in my 2004 V70 D5 engine because I suspect contains different antifreeze types. Is 5 speed gearing quiet on motorways or intrusive.
Good luck and if you ever find out the actual capacity, please post it here! I can't speak for the 226 Upgrade, only for the 163 vs 210. The 163 to 204bhp is approximately £580. The figures I quote are representitive of most D5's, the figures weren't taken from my D5. . The bog standard 163 D5 I've seen the figures for produced 409Nm 2400rpm and bang on the specified 340Nm 1750rpm where the stated band begins. It is also a 5 cylinder so I would say the capacity is very similar if not the same as our later model V70's.
There is also a chance your car could be one of the lasts old D5 engines. Does anyone know how to drain the coolant completely or is there really only 5 litres in there? All the advice suggests not to mix antifreeze types and that it's best to use Volvo genuine coolant to avoid corrosion and it's not much more expensive. You car is an estate so I assume its heavier than my S60? I'm not sure how close I got but I'm sure it's pretty close. I know the oil capacity on both and engine size is about the same. You can tell a D5 from a 2.
The bog standard 163 D5 I've seen the figures for produced 409Nm 2400rpm and bang on the specified 340Nm 1750rpm where the stated band begins. Any resaon why I should avoid this variant in either 5 or 6 speed. . I opened both the radiator and rear engine drain valves, but only 5 litres has come out. It never hurts to have a little over that 50% with the Volvo fluid, so that's what I did. You car is an estate so I assume its heavier than my S60? Any clues or things to look out for in particular? Normally you always see the 5-6 per journey but today, there was probably 4-5 times that! The D5 185 and 2.
I specifically wanted a manual 163bhp in black. A full tank gave me barely 250 miles and in traffic, you could see the needle falling. The D5 185 is a far better engine than the D5 163 so regardless of the mileage that's what I would recommend. Although I've been told the 185 is a quieter and smoother drive. My choice would be a manual. Mostly true, but not 'far' higher. I have a very heavy right foot and my driving is either around town or thrashing it down country roads.
Advoid the sport guise of this car, allows too much road noise into the cabin, every little bump in the road can be heard. Not saying there isn't a noticable difference in feel, just the figures aren't what they might be, no idea why yours are so rubbish as standard. The 163 to 204bhp is approximately £580. New, super-efficient aluminium five-cylinder turbo diesel engines S60 2. Too many people had concerns with their 185bhp variants - took their advice on board. Normally you always see the 5-6 per journey but today, there was probably 4-5 times that! Ok, yours is 163, as is mine the only difference is yours is manual and mines auto but I do regular trips to and from manchester and get high 40's but not even close to 60! We also have an '04 V70 but not the D5 but I would think they are the same and I was also amazed at how little it held also about 5 liters came out initially. Is there a thread somewhere that answers most of the above? I was justing wondering is the new 2.
My recommendation is to flush distilled water through it several times to get all the old out and to put the heat on full blast and engine running so that your heater core opens up too- it also holds some coolant and you want to drain it as well. Take all those claimed figures with a pinch of salt anyway and note that the torque figure they claim to increase it to is a maximum and the figure Volvo quote is a minimum over a specific rev range, the standard maximum is far higher. Certainly not representitive of 'most' 163 D5's, thats for sure. It was recently discovered that engine manufacturers would engage in what was called 'cycle beating' to optimize emission performance to the test cycle, while emissions from typical driving conditions would be much higher than expected, undermining the standards and public health. Correct if I am wrong but I believe them both to be 6-speed. Euro3 Limits diesel car emissions to 0.
