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.
A refrigerant leak may develop from the AC evaporator causing the AC to blow warm air. Verifying failure of this component is difficult. A good shop will use leak detection dye to verify a failing evaporator.
