I got Transmission Service Required message and the check engine
light is on. My husband thinks the transmission fluid is low and we want to check it. Is there even a dipstick? There is also a "bump" when I am stopped at a stoplight, the transmission shifts perfectly.
I have just picked up my car and on the way home driving on the highway, I accelerated to <3000 rpm, and as it hit the 3k rpm it lurked.
lid is two piece. Mine is the plastic part with license plate holder
It started a while ago and does it all the time. It does not have the pick up that it used to have. I don't want to hurt the car by driving a lot.
So i recently replaced control arm on passenger side due to worn bushing. I repleaced both front struts as well as ball joints, just as routine maintanance as i do have 160,000 miles on the vehicle. So ealry mornings no problems but afternoon or with increased drive when i turn to the right side i hear a sort of grinding noise.More of a noise that you would hear when playing cards would run along your old bike spokes... for those of you who remember the good old days. I do hear the noise when i turn to the left however its coming from the passenger side. Any ideas?

'spilt some coffee in the console that gummed up the linkage. problem looked at by local mechanic and volvo dealership. mess cleaned up. car still loses power and won't start up again. i read somewhere (and now can't find the site) that the underlying problem might have to do with a power module?
on and it saying that I need Catalic Converter. This is been going on for 4 years now. Within the last year my transmission is slipping between 1st and 2nd gear but once im in 3rd gear it drives fine - Im experencing some jerking between gears - Ive had the software updated maybe 3 years ago when I first experienced some jerking it did go away now its back and I'm shopping for a transmission - please help anyway possible
My 2003 s60 is a 5speed MANUAL transmission, no problems what so ever. I do have a loss of engine power and after replacing a MAF and MAP sensor, the car is still sluggish and bogs down. My volvo mechanic did a diagnostic trace and it said software upgrade needed. Can this truly fix a problem like this?
the trunk Lid was damage accidentally and cannot close properly later. The body shop charged almost $4000. What to DIY.
turbo shows no indication of problem
Since most of my Volvos are standard transmission cars, I have always operated the brake and accelerator with my right foot. While I've never had a problem with my 200,000+ mi. 245 wagon, this technique has resulted in near rear end collisions twice in the last three months!!The problem appears to be that the brake pedal, when marginally depressed, is at the same height as the accelerator. Thus, when I rotate my foot to brake, it is 'way too easy to engage the accelerator as well! It seems that if I could add height (in the form of a thicker rubber pad?) to the brake pedal, it might solve the problem. I really don't want to embark on a crash course (no pun intended!) to learn to brake with my left foot (I still own 4 manual Volvos!). ANY HELP would be most appreciated! PS. I have size 10 feet5: surely others have experienced this problem??
The cluster is out and everything else works on the car but the manual does not show the fuse for the cluster. Many Thanks.
if i hold the brake and mash the gas peddle nothing happens it will not rev up and if i put it in manual shift it will not go into gear at all
Just recently noticed, after I had new tires (all 4) put on, when trying to drive up my driveway (steep incline) the car has a thunking noise 3-4 times. This is something totally new with my 2005 S60 AWD Turbo. And I do notice a thunk noise when I start up from a total stop. Otherwise the car drives great on the highway.
Could it be something was disconnected when they put new tires on and replaced the front right tie rod?
Love this car, don't want anything to go wrong with it. Any help would be appreciated.
For about a year and half, my car has this problem. I will start it up and I go a little ways and I get a message saying reduced engine performance; also engine light is on and the big light in the middle above the steering wheel comes on and it sounds like it is running on one cylinder and will almost literally stop. It might stop that and be ok for a while, then start this again.
I was driving my vehicle 2 days ago and it just out of nowhere the engine stalled on me & the check engine light came on. I tried restarting and it wouldn't so I checked the wires to the battery and took a look under the hood. After about 15 mins I got it to restart and was able to drive another 10 mins when the same problem happens. Again it takes me a bit to get it going again b/c when it would start the engine would stall again when I put my foot on the gas. At some point the oil light flicked on and flicked off again after a bit of time. I let it run for 20 mins or so and decided to push my luck and try to get it home... which I did with no issue. I haven't touched it since I got it home on Saturday, today when I try starting it to bring it to the dealership I get nothing but the check engine light and a message which says time for regular service. Any ideas as to what my problem may be?
wet around the turbocharger return pipe. Are there oil seals there that can be replaced w/o replacing whole turbo unit?
My engine stopped while car was on motion. I pulled over an tried igniting the car but the engine won't start. What might be the cause? This is the first time I am experiencing this
We have seen a fix for a turbo charged Volvo, but this car is not turbo charged. The other fix was for the PCV valve. Please help
Seems as the longer you drive the worse it gets.
Now it display's Check Transmission display as well as check engine light plus in the middle of those two lights it has a triangular light lit.
my check engine light cam on yesterday, car drives fine. this morning i started my car, started fine but no headlights radio or seat warmers. very dim odometer and speedometer lights. I know for certain that i didn't leave the headlights or dome lights on overnight. I drove around for 15 min. turned the car off and back on and everything came back on headlights, radio, seat warmers and the previously dim lights were back to full brightness. it has been especially cold lately (-5 Fahrenheit) could it be the battery or something worse (ie far more expensive)? thanks
It just began a few months ago. It stopped then started again. Is it very expensive?
