Volvo S40 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
the speedometer and the fuel gauge no longer work. the indicator light of the fuel gauge is on no matter the quantity of fuel in the tank
We have had the vent blown out with air by general mechanic. That solved it for 1 fill up. Volvo dealer says they cleaned out gas tank fill vent filter and checked lines and all clear. That helped for 1 fill. Dealer mentioned replacing a pump?
Even with headlamp switch off, everything is on
Middle of driving and the emergency lights come on. It will stop for a few mins and do it again. The batter in the car is brand new.
and right now my right tire is hanging onto two good studs I can't move my car at all I was driving and I heard rattling or knocking in that same tire and the two studs broke
At what mileage do I need to replace the front shocks?
Having noise in the right front end. Had the CV joint replaced. Still there and getting worse. Checked motor mount. Is ok. Please suggest what other things this could be. I am very limited financially and cannot afford another shop looking and fixing something not broken. This car has 60k miles on it and has not been driven roughly at all. It is adult driven. No teenagers have abused it.
Though the roads here in Louisiana are horrible.
Please any suggestions are helpful.
Had the belt, fuel pump, rebuilt engine replaced. There was fluid at the bottom of the right front wheel well. The mechanic says the leaked onto the timing belt and it needs to be replaced. I was told that can't be the case because the belt is encased.
how reap lace ignition coil?
It seems to be running fine, no funny noises but I have a message saying it needs regular maintenance check so wanting to know what a mechanic would be looking for?
I need to replace the fuel injector pump, but I can't seem to even find it. Does anyone know where it is located on the S40?
they were working but i crossed a wire and it sparked. it blew the courtesy light fuse when it happened so I replaced that and everything else seems to work except license plate lights and I cant find a fuse for them
Timing tensioner broke, jumped time but did not break belt, car will turn over and the spark plugs are getting fire, and the fuel rail is getting fuel-not 45 psi but some fuel. The compression is still good but there is no fuel getting to the spark plugs-the plugs are dry if they are pulled after trying to start the car. The top cam shafts show to be in time but the bottom crankshaft not sure if it needs to be TDC or lined up with the fuel pump pulley.
My fuel pump in my 2004 Volvo S40 was replaced. Now I am getting less than 15 miles per gallon.
Engine is making a bad clicking noise at higher rpms. When it idles, the click is soft and can barely hear it but once you get on the gas it sounds like a metal card in bike spokes. Could it be the valves? If so, roughly how much does that cost to fix?
When I apply the brakes, the steering wheel shakes and shudders. Happens pretty much every time I hit the brakes
Even when my daytime lights are on the highbeams will come on by themselves. I have tried shutting them back off but they stay on. I can hear a clicking noise over on the passenger side of my vehicle every time they pop on also. What could possibly be causing this and is there a way to fix it without bringing it in and getting a huge bill?
I took it to a Mecanic and he drove it around he said it was smooth when driving which it is so he said it can't be the engine.it just started saying time for regular maintenance as well.
The battery went dead and it never worked again
When I push the power button it only say off nothing else
We need to get our 2000 Volvo S40 to run again because we cannot afford a new car. The Volvo dealership estimates $5,000 in repairs but I don't buy that. Is there anyone out there that knows about these cars? The engine revs when you're driving it causing the driver to have to pull over and throw it into neutral to try to get it running correctly again. This has not been a very safe situation. Can someone help?
I've had the left and right control arms replaced, as well as the front right strut. My mechanic has looked it over several times. He can't find an explanation for the noise. It occurs when I drive on slightly rough roads, at lower speeds (under 50 mph). It sounds like the whole car is going to fall apart, though I've been assured that it's ok.
