    Yes typically you need a programmer tool. Easier to just go to any tire shop or friend with a shop who has the tool than buy your own.



    Pretty strange. What model Volvo?
    Not sure. Their crossover.

    this is a known issue with my car as well...i just run it till the light comes on then dump a quart in...i think i researched that when the light comes on it means it's a quart low for this engine...takes just over 5 quarts for an oil change so i just put a 5 quart jug in during oil changes and a bunch of single quarts in my trunk for when the time comes...pretty aggravating to have to take up part of my trunk with 5 bottles of oil

    today i was driving to work and about 25 miles into my drive my low tire pressure light started to flash and then went solid on so i pulled into a rest area and took a look at my tires...all 4 tires looked fine by the naked eye...plus 25 miles into my commute the air should have expanded to increase the pressure so i have a feeling one of the batteries in the tire pressure sensors is dying...i will be working from home tomorrow so i'm going to check the pressures in the morning before driving the car...i had recently just aired them up a couple weeks ago so i think its a sensor battery...i think you can buy a tool to find the bad sensor and i think you need to buy another tool to reprogram the sensor to the car?...

    maybe i can have town fair tire take care of it since i buy my tires there instead of buying more tools...
    https://www.townfairtire.com/informa...em/index.shtml

    I "fixed" mine with some electrical tape. Screw spending that kind of money to replace a sensor when I can just, you know, actually check the fucking tire pressures every now and then.

    yea i probably won't have it fixed until i need new tires...my older cars never had sensors on them...wonder if it will trigger a car inspection fail though?...not worth it to me unless town fair tire will do it cheap since i buy my tires there...i know they do free flat repair if you buy tires there...i will have to call and ask

    TPMS is not an inspectable item in MA.

    Not sure on MA, but in NY TPMS is not part of inspections and we are pretty strict overall.

    Sensors are about $100 to replace in my experience.

    As far as your donut, I'd say it's unlikely that it has TPMS in it. Still can't hurt to have it upto pressure though..

    When in doubt also over pressure all your tires. Not sure when your TPMS triggers but if you think it's 32 or so, just go 38 on all the tires and drive around. This is coming from personal experience and a very frustrated mechanic friend who couldn't figure out why my light wouldn't shut off but everything was in check, trained and paired. I've always had pressure at 32 and it would never be on. Now it would stay on until I filled it to 35+. No idea where trigger point is honestly.

    I'm here too. Our 2010 Corolla has the TPMS light on. I've deduced it is sensors or sensor batteries failing. I have been told that ~10 years is about all you can ask out of the sensors.

    I haven't been through the inspection process yet. But I sure hope it isn't part of the test as I don't care to replace them. I have already learned to ignore the light.

    Well now, that's quite stunning. This a late model car? Ouch seems like an understatement.

    Shame as I've seen a couple newer Volvo's in the wild lately and felt my head turning. From the website I think it was the V60. And now I'm reading the V90 is rated to tow 5k!

    thanks...def not going to have them changed then...depends how much it costs along with my next set of tires...i typically overinflate tires just due to the sensors...i think my door sticker states 32psi i usually go to 35psi

    i think my sensors are original from 2013 so i'm a little under 10 years but i do have 194k miles on it so a little electrical tape will do the trick after i verify all tire pressures and drive it a little more...if it stays solid i'll tape the light up

    I think it was the XC60 from looking at a few pics online. Late model. maybe a 2015 or so.

    This brings up the question, with 5k (or higher) oil change intervals on newer cars, how many of you ever check oil level between changes? I know I don't. My van goes closer to 10k. (it tells me when based on how I drive, etc.

    Very few nowadays

    • Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and some Ford, Cadillac, Lincoln, Chevrolet, Chrysler, and Mazda models, plus others, have eliminated the dipsticks from their vehicles and other manufacturers are going in the same direction with the oil dipstick.

    It's either the sensor works properly or you will never know at all

    I check it once a week or so in my car, rarely in my truck and daily in the equipment they let me run around in.

    my 05 mazda 6 i never checked the oil...but it didn't guzzle oil either...this 13 subaru legacy i also never check it...i do 7500 mile oil/filter change intervals...i just wait till it tells me it's thirsty and dump a quart in...for my next car i'm basically looking for a hybrid outback which doesn't seem to exist...that subaru levorg sti is pretty sweet but i'm sure the gas mileage would push me the other direction...probably runs a cvt as well

    checked air pressure and was between 34-35psi on all 4 tires...didn't bother with the donut as i didn't feel like emptying my trunk to get to it...every time i start the car the tire pressure light flashes and then goes solid...must be the sensor batteries...going to do the electrical tape "fix" for now

    likely 1 of 5 sensor battery is dead. a tpms scan tool can tell you for sure.

    Re: Wagon/Crossover/4 Door Sedan - Shopping/Research

    so i have 3 Mobil 1 M1-108A oil filters left over from my wife's 2014 Nissan Maxima that we sold to carmax...i have been using Mobil 1 M1-110A filters for my 2013 Subaru Legacy...i was curious what other cars that the 108a filter would fit and i find out that both filters are basically the same...but the 110a is taller than the 108a so the 108a would have less filter surface area...if i go to autozone and enter my car the 110a comes up and if i go to o'reilly auto parts the 108a comes up...so i guess i'll just use them on my car...no point in ordering more 110a filters if i can use the 108a...do they make them shorter for under car clearance issues?...the filter on my subaru is mounted inverted on top of the engine so i can run the taller one

    Looks like the have the same bypass valve spec and everything. If it fits I'd run it and not think twice about it

    I vividly remember an issue from when I was younger. We had 2 vehicles with the AMC 258 in them, a CJ7 and a Concorde. The Concorde had a clearance issue that didn't allow the filter for the CJ7 to fit even though they were the same motor. Yes, I learned this after draining the Concorde after it was too late to buy the correct filter.

    i think i will...probably switch bad to the 110A after i finish these up just for the extra surface area

    My GF's Forester XT shares its motor with the WRX and I was surprised to see it called for a different filter than the WRX. When comparing, the WRX filter was shorter. I later looked it up online and the consensus was the WRX had a smaller filter due to clearance issues but either filter works.

    Used market is insane. Garden-variety crossovers go on sale on CL and elsewhere for 10-15% over pricing guides, and sell in a couple of days. Yet to look at anything: every car I’ve enquired about sold.

    The only difference I’m aware of on WRX was a different bypass pressure. Depends on year but the XT motor has less peak hp: currently 250 vs 268. Torque is same.

    Added the STI oil/coolant oil cooler to my. It fit under the filter, and there was plenty of room.

    I do not have any good suggestions as to your actual question of identifying which pulley is squeaking.

    I do have the suggestion that you get this rectified as soon as you can. Previous experience with a Subaru losing an idler pulley on the timing belt and successfully bending every valve in the heads and needing to replace them.

    Some of the timing belt kits that are out there include all of the idler pulleys for this reason

    Take a 18-24” section of hose, hold one end to your ear, and point the other end at the locations*. That will localize it.

    Generally it’s the tensioner, which is a pretty easy repair.

    Put the Mustang Mach-e on the list. Don't knock it off the list until you do a test drive.
