If it is necessary to manually override the shiftlock system:  Turn the starting (ignition) key to position I  Press firmly on the “SHIFTLOCK OVERRIDE” button located to the right of the base of the gear selector  While holding the override button down, press the button on the front of the gear selector  Move the selector from the (P)ark position.

Clutch interlock (manual transmission only) The clutch must be fully depressed before you can start you car. If the clutch is not depressed, it will not be possible to start the engine. Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) The ABS system in your car performs a self-diagnostic test when the vehicle first reaches the speed of approximately 12 mph (20 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several times and a sound may be audible from the ABS control module. This is normal. Fuel tank cover The fuel tank cover is locked and must be popped open using the control on the driver’s door (see illustration on page 16 ). Volvo and the environment Volvo is committed to the well being of our customers. As a natural part of this commitment, we care about the environment in which we all live. Caring for the environment means an everyday involvement in reducing our environmental impact. Volvo’s environmental activities are based on a holistic view, which means we consider the overall environmental impact of a product throughout its complete life cycle. In this context, design, production, product use, and recycling are all important considerations. In production, Volvo has partly or completely phased out several chemicals including freons, lead chromates, naphtanates, asbestos, mercury and cadmium; and reduced the amount of chemicals used in our plants 50% since 1991. In use, Volvo was the first in the world to introduce into production a three-way catalytic converter with a Lambda sond, now called oxygen sensor, in 1976. The current version of this highly efficient system reduces emissions of harmful substances (CO, HC, NOx) from the exhaust pipe by approximately 95% and the search to eliminate the remaining emissions continues. Volvo is the only automobile manufacturer to offer CFC-free retrofit kits for the air conditioning system for all models as far back as the M/Y 1975 240. Advanced electronic engine controls, refined purification systems and cleaner fuels file:///K|/ownersdocs/2000/2000_SV70/00sv70_00.htm (4 of 6)12/30/2006 3:43:31 PM 2000 Volvo S & V70 are bringing us closer to our goal. After Volvo cars and parts have fulfilled their use, recycling is the next critical step in completing the life cycle. The metal content is about 75% of the total weight of a car, which makes the car among the most recycled industrial products. In order to have efficient and well controlled recycling, many Volvo variants have printed dismantling manuals, indicating the weight and material of individual components. For Volvo, all homogeneous plastic parts weighing more than 1.7 oz. (50 grams) are marked with international symbols that indicate how the component is to be sorted for recycling. In addition to continuous environmental refinement of conventional gasoline-powered internal combustion engines, Volvo is actively looking at advanced technology alternative-fuel vehicles. When you drive a Volvo, you become our partner in the work to lessen the car’s impact on the environment. To reduce your vehicle’s environmental impact, you can:  Maintain proper air pressure in your tires. Tests have shown decreased fuel economy with improperly inflated tires  Follow the recommended maintenance schedule  Drive at a constant speed  See an authorized Volvo retailer as soon as possible for inspection if the check engine (malfunction indicator) lamp illuminates, or stays on after the vehicle has started  Properly dispose of any vehicle related waste such as used motor oil, used batteries, brake pads, etc.  When cleaning your car, use Volvo’s own car care products, all of which have systematically been adapted to the environment For additional information regarding the environmental activities in which Volvo Cars of North America, Inc. and Volvo Car Corporation are involved, visit our Internet Home Page at: Three-way catalytic converter file:///K|/ownersdocs/2000/2000_SV70/00sv70_00.htm (5 of 6)12/30/2006 3:43:31 PM 2000 Volvo S & V70 Three-way catalytic converter cautions  Keep your engine properly tuned. Certain engine malfunctions, particularly involving the electrical, fuel or distributor ignition systems, may cause unusually high three-way catalytic converter temperatures. Do not continue to operate your vehicle if you detect engine misfire, noticeable loss of power or other unusual operating conditions, such as engine overheating or backfir

    Every body knows that humen’s life seems to be expensive, nevertheless some people require cash for various issues and not every one earns enough money. Therefore to get quick mortgage loans or auto loan would be a correct solution.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an
    awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
