Volvo S60 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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.

If you could help me with these I would really appreciate it.
Will it cause any problems to the computer or car alarm
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?

My 2008 Volvo S60 2.0 T is stuck in park position. I can start the engine. The brake lights lit when press the brake pedal. The gear shifter is not stuck ( I suppose cause I can press on it). I can hear click and can feel something at the gear shifter everytime I step on the brake pedal but I cant move the shifter from park (P) position. The car was not use for a couple of days in the garage. What else should I checked. Help please.
My Volvo only has 54k miles on it. I bought it new, it's a 2003, & basically only use it to drive to work and back. Surface streets with an average commute of 5 miles, round trip.
My radiator has already been replaced as well. Am I crazy or should this car last a little bit longer. I know it's been almost 9 years but it's only got 54000 miles. I expected a little more longevity out of it especially being a Volvo. I drove a Mazda B2000 pick up for 18 years and put over 200K on it & didn't have these issues. Change the fluids, keep her clean, good to go. My Volvo is in great shape but with the price they told me to fix the transmission it may as well be totaled. I'm dumbfounded...
I have 72,000 miles and it is 9 years old.
how do you turn down or up the idle speed on a volvo s60 2 litre turbo engine
