Volvo S40 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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.

I'd like to know where this fuel pressure regulator is located, and about what it looks like. The Site says it's the fuel pressure regulator or the vacuum line attached to it that is causing it to have starting problems. I've had a diagnostic run a couple of times and no codes come up, which, according to this Site, is common. This regulator or the plumbing to it seems to be my problem.
When I start my vehicle it runs very loud. Then while I am driving there is a rattling sound right side of vehicle under the hood. What could this be? Just started the past few days
2004 s40 w/1.9L running rough. Wants to cut off at stop lights. Shaking badly. Hard to start sometimes. Had timing water pump and plugs to try to correct this issue. Didnt fix it. Check engine is showing all four p0301, 0302, 0303, 0304 codes. And, the p0171 code is showing as well. Where do I even begin to start with all the possibilities? Fuel pressure? Its petrol, not diesel. O2 sensor maybe? MAF? How can I bench test some of the sensors to eliminate culprits? It just dont want to run smooth and wants to shake and cut off at red lights.
