Asked by Jan 28, 2015 at 02:57 PM about the 1993 Volvo 960 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have stripped the threads on the bolt holes for the thermostat housing on my Volvo 960
when replacing stripped bolts with new ones. Was wondering if there is an easy fix (DIY)
or is this best handled by mechanic?
