1997 Volvo S90 Problems

The front control arm bushings wear out, resulting in alignment issues and squeaking and/or knocking noises from the front end. Worn bushings will require replacement.

A "no start condition" and illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a failing engine coolant temperature sensor.

Vibration problems from the rear brake rotors are common and require replacement of the pads and rotors, and the installation of special shims. The symptoms often occur when the brakes are used heavily from repeated braking, braking from high speeds, and braking while going downhill. The entire vehicle can vibrate and shudder, like it is being driven over train tracks.

My front end suspension has been re-done bearings checked.I still have a grating noise coming from the car that my mechanic cannot locate. It is intermittent,he hecked the rear of car still cannot locate the problem.

I can't get the plastic housing covering the bulb off. The dealership mechanics couldn't figure it out either. The nuisance is that when I hit the brake pedal, the idiot light indicating a bad bulb comes on the instrument display. Help!

The front passengers side window only works with the driver side control, the rear passenger window doesnt open, and the side mirror control doesnt work for the passengers side. Ive checked all 3 fuse boxes, whats wrong?
