Volvo S80 2.4T Polyurethane Lower Gearbox Mount

My original gearbox mount was shot and I decided to replace the mount with a brand new reinforced polyurethane mount, which tightens up the shifting and allows for less engine movement, which is better for the exhaust.

One disadvantage, the cabin has added drone due to extra vibration. But the advantages outweigh the one disadvantage, so for me it’s a keeper!

Old vs New. The mount should not be able to move like that 🙂

And this is how it looks under the engine. Easy job, 2x 14mm & 2x 18mm nuts.

Volvo S80 2.4T New Bosch O2 Lambda Sensor

As a car grows older, parts outreach their peak efficiency and should be replaced with new parts. Like the front O2 lambda precat sensor, which has an replacement interval of 250.000km, which my car already replaced sometime ago. Replaced it with a genuine Bosch OEM part. Noticed that my Long Term Fuel Trims (LTFT) were dropping, which is a good indicator.
