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.

i got aoil change about feb. this year the man told me i need a valve gasket cover i hope i am saying the part name right .so i forgot until the two week ago i look at mydrive there where all my oil had link out i see it all on the left tire so what i should do

With 150,000 miles?

Whined when accelerated at first then clouds of white smoke poured from exhaust.. Oil is seen in tailpipe and now car won't move at all when pedal is pushed to floor... Looked up to find turbo return pipe seal is a common problem that would cause this to happen... Looking for an estimated price to fix a problem like this would cost?

My friend changed my oil and my car cranks like normal but when you press the gas to go it revs up but does not move

it is very random. it used to only drop to zero when the temp was about 60 degrees or more, now it's happening more often at cooler temps.

It gives me a service alarm on the dash board even after my mechanic changed the startermotor and serviced it.Its just quite please help.acts
like something blocking the flow of fuel.
