Volvo S80 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I'm trying to bypass my ignition which was grinded out. I disassembled the switch but not sure what to do next. I just need my car to start. I don't have the money for new ignition w new chipped key.
that you can know how fast you going ,how much gas you have on the car and mileage does't not come on
the car wont start it turns over but dose not start , It has been raining here for 2 days
I bought the vehicle cheap because I was told it needed a new transmission. It drove when it was cold, but sounded as if it was going to shut off. I brought it to Aamco to have a Free Multi point check. I was told a further inspection was needed which i had to pay $191, in which they said it backfired. They changed the 02 Sensor, then said it overheated and they filled coolant, and it overheated again. They then wanted to do an RDI which cost me another $850. The final concclusion was that the radiator was leaking coolant into the transmission fluid which damaged parts in the transmission that needed to be replaced. Needed a transmission rebuild and radiator and thermostat replacement which would cost me over $4000. This seems extremely high, is this a reasonable amount for that?
I have been fixing my Volvo a little at a time due to finances. I have replaced the rack and pinion and the air filter. And the fuel pump. When I drive her for longer than thirty minute the console and shift area get very hot but She doesn't run hot but yesterday she sprung a gas leak and I can't find the source. I had filled her up and put some Lucas fuel injector cleaner in as well. Drove about 3 miles and parked and saw the gas running out at the bottom. I waited for the gas to dry and the leak to stop. She was still on full and I drove her home. Not she cuts on but when sitting in idle she acts like she wants to cut off but doesn't.
60000 service coming up which includes replacing spark plug.Cost is a factor which one should have priority?
3 codes of pedal no communication.
1 code boost pressure no signal.
1 code BCM no communication
Is there anyone other than the dealer that can do this?
The remaining cylinders are all about the same and the compression is reasonable for the miles (155 PSI not warmed up) I know I have a valve problem or piston issue. Problem is the head needs to come off to resolve. Even if it is the valve problem lesser of the 2 issues. I'm leaning toward changing the engine out for one with lower miles. I have had 0 issues with this car since I bought it in 07 with 15K miles. The car is still in good shape everything works. I normally do everything myself timing belts/brakes/tunes ups/PCV system. I feel like I can change the engine myself but I'm curious what it would cost me to have someone else do it?
I must add about a cup of fluid every day but it is increasing. My check engine will come on and I get a message to pull over and add coolant asap. Temperature gage doesn't indicate engine getting hot. I had to replace radiator, transmission connectors for hoses in and out of radiator, flushed and added new coolant.
Wrong with it ppc pgc either one not exactly sure yet but how much do these repairs cost and do u think I'm paying too much with these issues
What problems should I beware such as how often should the timing belt be replaced, front end bearings, etc?
But i dont know how many parts, i'm seeing so many kits and each one has one more item then the other, Please help thanks
this goes worse the longer car is driven oil is very dark goes very thin when hot got codes0100 control module faulty signal 503d diagnostic trouble in gearbox control module
someone who did a job on the computer,the car did start a while and shut down again
one on pass side will, if you coax it 20 times. Drivers side no way. Rear glass was broken in storm, and replaced. Then problem started. Cannot be fuse because one side works sometime.
I replace the light bulb, still does not come on.
It sounds like the gas is not getting to the engine the way it supposed to
I have a p1633 code, the message center says "brake failure, stop safely ASAP. car runs HORRIBLY at times, found out that if I remove the ABS module that the car will still run, removed it and car runs great! Ocassionaly it will miss and run poorly, if I disconnect battery and hook it back up it fixes the problem. I have since gotten a used module, however it gives me the same issues...does it have to be programmed to my car? is there something else I am missing? HELP PLEASE!!!
After installing new arm the window will not go up. Do I have to adjust the arm and if so how?
I test drove a 2006 S80 2.5t and while accelerating from a red light, the engine dropped from around 3k rpm to almost nothing. It came back up quickly, but I'm leery about buying this car. The dealership said it was caused by an issue with the electrical cooling fan, but they didn't give me the exact code from the OBD. The CEL was on before the test drive as well, but the salesman said he thought it was because someone probably put regular unleaded in the tank instead of premium. Any help is appreciated!
