Car has been used heavily in last year due to job commute. Had an oil pan leak that was repaired in August 2012 as the mechanic said it was caused by a "striped" oil plug. Instead of changing the oil pan, he welded a new "nut" that fit another plug. Oil change in February 2013, Service engine light came on during commute trip home. (32 miles) Took it back for tune up (new plugs and wires) Engine is now "ticking" loudly when idle and also misfireing (jerking) when going up any small grade change in hwy and obvious when accelerating or going up hills. Had fuel pressure checked and mechanic said it was at "65". I asked that he change out the fuel filter and he said it didn't need to be done. ?

I had a reading done on it that stated a bad O2 sensor, bank one

2000 Volvo C70 MAF sensor

It looks like in this model the ABS sensor alone can be replaced without having to replace the entire HUB assembly (assuming it is in fact a defective sensor). Also How can you determine if its the ABS sensor or the ABS module?

One day later the car won't shift out of 1st gear again. Bad installation of solenoid,loose wire connection, incompetent mechanics? Transmission shifted like new for that 1 day. Shop notified and told to bring car back for diagnosis.
