Volvo S80 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
The noise I hear at most all times sounds IDENTICAL to a car horn being muffled by insulation or towels. Seems to be coming from the firewall side of the engine/compartment.
Thanks and sorry for repeat question.
Hi. I just picked up a 2001 S80 29L. Love it for sure, except for the "note" or whine reporting loudly and consistently at all times while idling and basically anytime I'm not accelerating. Got a great deal on it, but feel I may just lose it if my new car continues to announce my arrival from a football field away.....
Saw similar issues/answers, just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to the cause: serpentine belt, pulley, intake, front exhaust????? It literally whines at approx full-grown womans' vocal capacity at a specific, consistent note always during idle and before accelerating, including pulling up to intersections and coasting. Thanks all.
Got catalitic converter changed 2. Months ago and its starting to bog down and lose power again sounds like something is in the tailpipe and stopping the ingine excelaration to sound more under the hood than through the tailpipe. and it also cutting out to almost a complete stop.
clock time changes every time I start the car; can't control the levels on the heat and air conditioning, miles driven once reset keeps changing once I stop and start car; radio will just bounce from channel to channel without me changing it
the car is in the driveway , did not overheat when I got home it, the fluids just ran out.
The AM reception has some interference or background noise. The FM and CD portions work fine. I replaced the rear window (with antennas) and that helped for about a week, but now the background noise is back. I noticed that Consumer Reports had a black circle under "audio" for my 2008 Volvo. Any ideas on what might be the problem here?
Presently, the car doesnt move at D,3, 2, 2,. Its jus the Park, Reverse and Neutral gears that are functional
I think I have problems with my front suspension. It's very noisy over bumps. At last tire rotation, my service guy said that my front shocks were starting to leak and that I would probably have to replace them soon. As long as I'm doing that, is there any other stuff I should replace at the same time? Thanks.
i can forward pictures of the damaged part and parts area if that helps with providing an answer, but will need email and/or number to text to
the noise goes away after driving for a while. It is not making a noise when I shut off the car only when left overnight. I just purchase the car and not familiar with Volvos
The transmission has 200k miles. It has been running fine. Started slipping 5K miles ago. The transmission would then act like it is in Neutral no matter what gear you shift into. NO reverse or drive. Shut off wait a few minutes then it will work again. I changed fluid and filter. This helped for about 2500 miles. It is doing it again. Anyone have any possible reasons this is occurring? The transmission fluid looks fine. Nothing out of the ordinary when it was flushed the last time.
While i was driving with a/c on and fan on it suddenly stopped blowing. There no noises.
It feels as if the car is in neutral position...shifting to 3 and 2 works and I am able to drive slowly and as if the car is in pain. One week ago, I had an oil change and topped off all the fluids. I noticed since then that coolant was leaking.
Any suggestions, please. Thanks
Radio and lights work...could it still be a dead battery or do you think I need new ignition swith?
I'm being told that there is oil leaking into the catalytic converter but they are unable to determine from where. Any suggestions?
I had transmission rebuilt about 17 months ago. At the time the check engine light was on showing the transmission was faulty. Now I get this other code 0099 Control Module Internal Fault.
for the my engine has a hard start up. Please advise advise me on an estimate to replace part, labor. I was quoted $300.00 for everything.
Going up mountain road sensor light came on transmission service urgent...was told to let cool and seems to be ok but light still on
Loud sound right under the motor, it kind of sounds like if it is low on fluid on the transmission oil but whenever I put it on drive it is okay. On reverse the sound will sound only if I step on the gas lightly. Then when car has been hot all day won't sound any more only till MORNING agin?
Thanks hope any body rain into this.
had to have the car jump started, now there is an airbag warning. The car is in the drive way with the lights on, car is off.
I took the panell off. and put arm back in the plastic slider but it will not go all the way up does it have to be reset
Code 44..in the past I have held the trip meter in 4 30 seconds or so…thats when code appears…then sometimes light goes off , sometimes not ….even when it goes off..always comes back on after some driving…does the braking system or cruise control have something 2 do with this ?
what could this be when driving its spitting antifreeze on engine
The seat moves up and back, but the seat-back does not adjust, and the memory settings do not work. the seat-belt alarm also does not work. I just purchased this beautifully maintained car, and this is the only problem so far.A dealership wants to do a $100 diagnostic. I think it has to be easier than that.
When accelerating hard car surges not as bad when in manual shift mode.would bad pcv cause this condition? oil leaking onto exhaust leaks approximately a quart every thousand miles
It's a 2000 Volvo s80 and when first started runs smooth but won't rev up at all after running for a bit it gets a rough lower idle but will rev up to 1500-2000rpm's and occasionally it will start and run alright for a little while, what's causing this?
