I bought the cheapest Volvo C30 in the country for only $3,000 somewhere in northeast Texas. It needed a lot of help, all the suspension was blown out but the turbocharged five cylinder engine was perfect. I just finished rebuilding the rear suspension taking care of a lot of the clunking and banging under the car but now it's time to replace the entire front. We're changing the complete strut assemblies, control arms, sway bar endlinks, both CVs, and an oil change in one day.

These C30 videos should come in handy for me, I just picked up a cheap T5 for about $2800US here in NZ. It needs a full refresh of the suspensions and bushings, but at least I'm saving it from being parted out.

I drive a '04 V50 2.0D, I had a problem when wheel started shaking a bit while braking/driving on the highway. Wheel alignment and new brake pads/discs fixed this. Your's doesn't look bad judging from the video, but it may be the culprit

So this is my preliminary ranking of best "Car AM-postsrs that actually rebuild car mechanics" that are one man shows with limited outside help,because Goons Squad is a team,Cleetus is a team,Samcrac be winging it. 1)Junkyard Dave 2)Jared 3)Alex 4)Chris Fix 5)Tavarish 6)Rich Rebuilds(He did a Tesla for christ sake) 7) B is for build that guy I guess ain't seen content in awhile 8) Watch JrGo,though he has a team it appears too. I'm giving them my Corey Score for rankings🤣🤣🤣

Hey John Ross, just checking. did you put reman OEM CV's back in the car. these c30's and the Mk2 Focus ST that share this same platform are notorious for splitting CV's when you use nearly 99 percent of the after market shafts on the market and start clunking and failing after a couple 1000 miles or less. check the hydraulic passenger side engine mount to make sure its not fucked they are pretty bad for breaking and clunking. also check the lower torque mount they also clunk when rooted.

Drives car with a solvent-based oil flush in it. Well, this car would have had a nice engine for the buyer. When it has no load on it, it's not a big deal, but when you're driving around and loading the internals with solvent, then you're doing a ton of damage. This can be tested by running those junkyard engines without motor oil and they will idle forever. The moment you put them into gear, the engine will sieze.

JR, I’ve been watching your channel faithfully for 6 months now and I have learned a lot more about cars than I knew before. Plus, I enjoy watching the things you do that are more intricate than usual. I’ve got a marketing suggestion: you need more females on your videos. They would make the channel a lot more visually appealing. Nothing like the softer, gentler side of life to take the edge off things when you like, share, subscribe or do whatever you want to do.

Some of the engineering and design on the Volvo is brilliant. I did the front end rebuild upon buying my P1 volvo and I was really pleased by how easy everything was to do - EXCEPT removing and installing the LH CV axle with the M66 transmission. That was awful. The automatic isn't as bad.
