volvo problem in front end?

car still ran though was slow from a standing start to pick up speed again. would pick up speed. when I stopped and shut car off then restarted, all worked fine, however check engine is still on

Only 54,000 miles

shifting hard from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd

It sounds like it could be a loose head or im not an exspert but soon as you start the engine rattle rattle rattle no over heating does leak oil

The instruments and ligths work some time and suddenly stop working when car is runing.

I drive for about 15 miles and restart the car it stays off then only to come on again about 10 minutes late. at one time system shutdown. I replaced the battery with Volvo brand last night and light came on again? Help

2004 volvo 260 with 151k miles

Car seems to run ok then randomly it will act like it is going to stall out. Check engine light is off. After a while it will lose power and stall out. Sometimes it will stall multiple times until it decides to run again. When it stalls out the check engine light illuminates. But then once it sits for a little while and I start it again the light will be off. It wil run fine for a little while then goes through the whole cycle again. I brought it in when the engine light was on and the error code p0089 shows up. Any info would be helpful.

Car dose not start no ignition light on the dashboard but if you hit the brain computer some time the ignition light come on and the car start and drive what could be the problems ?

The indication comes on each time i turn the car on and off. I can temporarily turn it off using the button on the end of the directional signal. What do I do to reset the notice?

Transmission fluid is full but looks a little burnt. Don't know when it was last changed; it it my wife's car. Oil was two qts. low and burnt.

It says that the Main Catalyst Efficiency Below Threshold on bank 1.
I wanted to know what steps to take to fix this trouble code

This only happens whenever the car is in reverse.

Can the fuse # 21,in the passenger compartment or the 4 wheel drive control module fuse #17, in the cargo area, be causing my transmission to surge or slip? If not any ideas? It seems to happen after driving for about 1 hour. I have tried in manual a few times and I seem to have no problems

i have 69,000 miles on the above car, 3 years old. she has been cared for very well, driven with a light foot, all services, synthetic oil changes, etc. i need a vehicle for 3 more years, and plan to put on about 25K miles/year. i am able to purchase an extended warranty that would cover the car for 5 years, to 169K miles, for $3400. the warranty covers only named parts and standard labor charges relative to engine, transmission, transfer case, drive axels, suspension, steering, brakes, electrical, climate control, engine cooling, fuel system, high tech, luxury electronics, and failed seals and gaskets. i am weighing if this is a reasonable purchase -- at the end of my ownership, i plan to see the car with 10K or more miles left on the warranty (which is transferrable to the new owner). any thoughts on the most likely repair issues i might face with the care between 69,000 miles and 150,000 miles? thanks for your ideas.
