The Engine light went on in my son's car. He took it to the Volvo dealership and they told him it was an rpm sensor (which I have subsequently learned is also called a crank sensor) What is involved in its replacement and what can I expect to pay?

I thought it was the battery bought a new one but car stopped again after driving about 25 miles. Message started yesterday.

A metal clanging rattling noise toward the right front around firewall when hitting any bumps or sometimes when applying slight pressure to the brakes. By applying solid pressure to the brakes the noise will stop. Letting off brake pressure abruptly will sometimes cause the clank immediately when pressure is released. Then it resumes just intermittently and constant when on rough roads. It seems to be brake related but I'm not sure. Applying solid pressure to the brakes is the only way to make it stop.

First, thank you to the professional who answers this question. I am seriously considering buying the mentioned Volvo and the owner says the transmission is stuck in 3rd. The owner is asking a fair price considering and the car is excellent shape otherwise. After doing some research I discovered some S80 models were equipped with a GM transmission that was not a great match. My question is, what all should I know prior to buying the car as far as addtional problems that could also arise with this particular model. Basically any info would be helpful.
Thanks,
Brandon

Power antenna won't move. I can hear the motor running when the radio is turned on or off, but the antenna doesn't move. I've tried lubricating the antenna, and can move it manually, but the automatic doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Service light stays on for first 10 minutes of driving. The car running fine until yesterday car stalled out completely/all power off and I pulled over to side in time. I had just started the car 3 minutes before and the car had been sitting in parking garage all day. The car restarted immediately and then on the way home it sputtered a bit once and that was it. Today started right away and didn't stall out on 10 minute ride. What could this be? The car has 330k on it and has a great strong engine. Thanks!

I noticed my reserve tank for coolant hasnt been holding coolant--I saw a small what looks like a pipe line leaking from under the car--but the other day my car was smoking after i put the heat on--it was coming from under the hood--all of my coolant then flushed out from under car too--Im wondering what could it be?

The mechanic at the dealership tells me my Volvo V70 has an oil leak and oil is getting on the timing belt. He says that I can keep adding oil, but since it is leaking on the timing belt it "could" ruin my engine. Is that true? If I do not address the leak will it ruin the engine because of timing belt?

occurs randomly, wondering if it could be a clogged fuel filter or something else?

Using coolant and don't see a leak.

My Cooling fan between the radiator and the block will not turn off unless i disconnect it. How do i fix this

i have a leak on a coolant line that runs along the right side of the engine under the intake manifold.the leak is at a bracket that bolts the coolant line(metal) to the block. the line starts at the lower radiator hose engine connection, continues along side the engine and around the back to a rubber hose that goes through fire wall.the leak is close to a nipple on the coolant line where a rubber hose is connected and loops to a box that the oil filter screws on. metal coolant line needs repair or replaced. how?
