Can hear from outside, sounds like it's coming from under the car.

Trying to find a replacement part
While driving, happens more and more frequent (4 or 5 times today), if I shut of a/c for a few mins and turn back on it works like normal for a little while
Car is stuck in park gear.
cools for a little while then shuts off or blows hot air.you can cut off a few minutes and then turn back on and its ccol again.
I saw previous answer referencing the blower box. How do i access it. I have no idea where it or the cabin filter is located.
I can see where coolant is leaking from two hoses and took it in to be serviced. The est. came back at just over $900 to repair the Gasket-Thermostat, hoses, and coolant system service w/ extended life. Is this all necessary. I guess what I'm asking, does the gasket/thermostat need to be replaced if the collant is leaking from the hoses?
It was working fine before I replaced the battery with another CR 2450 battery. Now, it doesn't work at all. Please help.

I had the serpitine belt replaced because it broke along with the timing belt and its components but car still wont hold pressure. Does that auto matically mean its valves and or pistons are out or could be something else. When serpentine belt broke I heard it and stopped right away.
I was at a redlight and about to make a turn and the car just shut off. I did not see any warning lights on just the oil light/ car did come back on/ what should I do? It had never done that before
car runs fine, but I don't feel any boost or hear the turbo whine.
115,000 miles replaced crank/cam shaft seals, timing belt, water pump, valve, still leaks small amount of oil near front passenger side.
Any idea what could be wrong with it? It's a 2007 Volvo s40.

I took my 04 Volvo S40 to a Volvo expert to find out why my car's A/C would not go from off to on. He scanned the vehicle with VCT-2000 diagnostic and found code CC-007D and CCM-000A. He recommended replacing the evaporator temp sensor and the damper motor. Is this correct or do I just need to fix the A/C switch?
About once a month, I will go out and try to start my car and the only thing that happens is all the idiot lights come on, radio works, heat, etc. There is no clicking sounds at all. If I wait an hour or so, the car will usually start. Any suggestions on what could be causing this? Is my starting going bad?? Battery issues?? Thanks for any help. Debbie
Not really car smart after about 5 mins a little oil but very slow leak?
and now there is a grinding noise coming from the clutch housing when on tick over
The car has a manual gearbox. i cannot move the lever past the reverse stop on the gate.
When pushing the a/c button from off to on, the light does not switch over to on and the a/c does not come on. Please help.
When the car is running, the blower is always on. Whether dialed to Auto, 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 the fan sounds like it is running at the 4 level. If I turn the switch to 5, the AC, recirculate and rear defrost lights flash. Is this a thermostat issue?
Hey everyone I've recently been having some issues with my headlights. I have a 2005 Volvo S40 2.4i that came stock with Xenon lights. Question number one.... I've had to replace my headlights 2 times in the past 3 years, am I buying the wrong bulbs? I dont know if theres a difference between Bi xenon and HID lights and when the stock ones went out I switched them with D2S bulbs from (Meng motorsports). Anyway the first time they went out I put in D2S bulbs and they worked great, no conversion kit needed. I just swapped bulbs and it was golden. 2 years went by and the bulb exploded again so I changed them with the same bulbs as the first time. They worked fine for about a year and just recently I've be driving and my lights or just one light will flicker and shut off. All I would have to do to fix it is turn the lights to the off position and then back on and they worked fine for about 10 to 20 more minutes. Even more recently however its been getting worse. The trick of shutting them off and back on only works for a minute or two before it fails again. I've tried to disassemble the light and shake wires looking for a looking for a loose connection but to no prevail. One thing I noticed is a weird humming sound that is interrupted when that fail. If anyone has any knowledge on what the cause is I would really appreciate it. Whether its the ignitors, the ballasts or the bulbs Id love some help!
A few days ago, I came out of a mall and the flashers were going off. I unlocked the car, thought that I mistakenly hit the panic button and proceeded to start it. Then, the flashers started again. The horn started honking and the screen said "crash mode". After that, I turned it off and on again and it flipped from crash mode to "valet mode". Turned it off and on again and proceeded to try to drive home. About a mile in, it stopped on me, went to crash mode and I called triple a.
While parked outside my house, the alarm and flashers started going off again due to no apparent reason. I have since disconnected the battery.
Does anyone know what could be causing this?
