solder joints is not a problem in this country or all makes of cars would have a solder problem
I would suggest that you have a very serious inspection done on the car before you buy it as one piece of rubbish may be said to hide something more serious
AC systems mostly fail from loss of gas or failed compressors so have the problem properly diagnosed by an ac specialist shop first

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect itagain, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your carradio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. Ifyou do not have this code you need to go to your Volvo servicecentre and get them to enter this code for you.

The oil HAS to be a "3309" oil. Mobil 1 makes one, Volvo sells their really expensive version, and then there's the cheapest (but just as good) alternative of the Toyota Type IV oil, usually $6/quart at the Toyota dealer.

Yes, you can't just drain all the oil as the automatic holds a lot in the torque converter and the lines are full too.

I disconnected the top oil hose from the radiator to the transmission and connected a hose to it. Then I put the hose in a gallon jug and started the car. When the jug was half full (two quarts) I turned off the engine and filled up with two fresh quarts.

I repeated this until the transmission pumped out oil of the same color that I poured in. This took about 12-13 quarts.

Reconnect the line to the radiator and then the other tricky part is ensuring the oil level is correct. This is done with HOT oil. YOu have to make sure you have enough oil to show in the 'normal' field on the oil stick, then drive the car for 20 minutes to ensure it's good and hot, then park on level ground and shift through all the gears while staying in each gear for about 3 seconds.

Put it in park and check the level. It takes very little to get from the bottom of the stick to the top, so be cautious when topping off if you're low.
If you add oil, run through the gears for 3 seconds each again before checking.

Ideally, you'd use VIDA (Volvo software) and DiCE (the ODBII interface) to reset the oil change counter in the transmission computer too, but most people don't do that and still have no issues.

All this took me about 3 hours at home, but I'm slow. A mechanic is probably faster. :D

find the leak and repair it .then you must bleed the system .your abs pump has no fluid that is why it is showing abs light.

Volvo S60 02... | Answered on Dec 23, 2013 | 54 views

if no oil leaks due to thin oil .then it will be ok. turbo like to burn oil .so should check the oil every day before driving.if you start to get a lot of ticking noise from your tappets then use a thicker oil.

If it was me i would go to a car radio shop and purchase a new and cheaper radio including installation. It would be a lot cheaper than $850.

I would do a compression check. They are easy to do. The tool is about $50 at any part store. If you have a harbor freight near by it's only $30.
If that is something you're willing to try let me know and I can talk you through it.

Make sure you have a full charge on your battery. Make sure the battery post are clean, and the cables are tight, coat with an anti-corrosion spray. Check you solenoid switch.
