Cylinder # 2 is misfiring when engine is cold. The compression on that cylinder is around 55 but only when engine is cold. Compression is normal when engine is warmed up. Had new ignition coil installed on Cyl #2 and new plugs as well as injecting top engine cleaner and cleaned PCV system. All to no avail. Engine light stayed off during hot weather but comes on in colder weather with misfire code.
the display will have partial letters, or garbled info. Sometines it comes on upside down. How can I fix this? The display isn't burned out, it works perfectly sometimes.
Right front panel has body damage from an SUV backing into it. Body shop estimate stated "not original manufacturer parts". Should I request Volvo parts? Will non original parts decrease the value of my car?
I recently purchased this vehicle and the owner's manual does not show the location of this filter. I would like to replace it because I do not know if or when it has been replaced. When I use the climate control and the fan is on high there are particles that fly out the vents.
I have the 2.5 L Turbo version of this model. Recently, it has been running very sluggish. I just had an oil change 500 miles ago, and I alternate between 89/91 grade oil per tank fill up. The manual states that higher grade gas is not a requirement for engine reliability. However, the way it is driving now, it's almost like it isn't a turbo at all.
I made an appointment at the Volvo dealership here in Vegas. I see exactly what is going to happen. There will be something wrong with the transmission, and they will say it is because I am not using 91 gas. They already tried to tell me over the phone that 91 was REQUIREMENT for the engine, not a suggestion from the manufacturer for better performance.
Now it could also be because it's very hot right now in Vegas and I know that switching to a higher octane in hot weather can sometimes help.
Anyone else having this issue?
When you turn steering colmumn, the car will crank....acts like it is a short inns the steering column....
After car warms up as I accelerate it feels like runs out of gas. This stall quickly stops and will run fine for a few mins and while I push on pedal it just stalls. Have changed fuel filter, new plugs, lucas injector cleaner, air filter. Seems to do it more often now. no ck engine light comes on.

Can anything "BAD" happen to the engine components or the engine it self?
Dealership cannot locate issue. Suggested I have all connections cleaned for $650.00 aand no guarantee that would work. Can anyone help with this? The turn signal was replaced as well as the solenoid a few month back. They check that and said it was functioning properly.
Have a 2002 Volvo S60 with Code P0785 only. Is this an easier fix or possible c
will replacing it solve the intermittent circuit problem?
trouble code P2407
check engine light came on yesterday.
this is a orange light on the dash
is it the altenator
Engine only has 35,000 White smoke out of tail pipe after it warming up. Replace the PCV valve/hoses, Turbo as mention by mechanic. Did a compression test and good results 170 lbs with one cylinder ar 165 lbs. Could it be the valve stem seals ? or do I need to drive the car to clean out the oil in the pipes. I have started it and ran it for 20 mins. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
I was informed by Volvo that my sway bar bushings are plastic and getting worn and would need to be replaced at a cost of $650.00. Is it really necessary to have them replace and who is Columbus, Ohio besides Volvo would replace for a cheaper cost?
Is this reasonable and what is a reasonable estimate. The car drives fine..ie I am not having any issues that I can detect.
the driver side is still working
where is the charcoal canister and the hoses that could leak?
Where are the headlight fuse(s) located? Engine compartment? trunk? Cabin?
My passenger side low beam headlight went out I replaced both sides. Both worked for a short time then the passenger side failed again. My message reads "bulb dipped" ?
I must have not gotten the bulb back in the holder correctly because when I inspected the bulb it was smashed. Can a bulb "blow up"? It was working after I installed it and after 1 or 2 trips out it was destroyed! Now I only have drivers side again. I've tested the bulb I'm using to replace and it's good, but there's no power to the passenger side. The fuse is good because the drivers side works. Could it be in the light switch? How can there be power to only 1 headlight?
My park assist failed shortly before I replaced the battery. Could this be due to a low charge on the battery? Also, once battery was replaced, the CD player went out. Swedish car place across the street quoted me $2k to fix the individual components, but it seems like a simple computer upgrade or reset would solve this issue considering everything was centered around the battery being replaced. Anyone have a similar issue?
Mechanic said if I had a different car it could only take an hour or so. WTF??
I have a car accident with my Volvo S60 2003 and I really love the car so I want to repair it. I have clean everything from the outside, however after the scanner these are the errors that I would like you to tell me what I need to buy in order to get it better.

my ignition key will not turn past the 1st position
was unable to turn the key past the first segment. locked and unlocked the steering wheel...turned it and attempted to turn key further. car is in park. Unable to move gear forward. Car just locked up. Power with first key turn segment allows electric windows and stuff. told it was probably an ignition switch
I AM NOT ABLE TO PUT CAR IN REVERSE. WHEN TURNED OFF, WITH IGNITION TURNED, I HEAR A SOUND UNDER THE HOOD, . WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKES, ITS A LITTLE STIFF AND TIGHT. I HEARD IT MAY BE THE BRAKE SWITCH?
