how to add transmission fluid to my volvo
my 1999 volvo S80 sedan starts with Y so then does that mean its not one of the recall volvo's?
Just purchased this car today and I love it, but the dealer only gave me one service key and I would like the master key, or two. Thank you for your time.
I have volvo, 1999 just boat it. when i checked, codes came out (p0432-p0422) I dont know what to do, can you give me some advise please???
can not get it to run period.
The L.front seat randomly "lays down". No known association with other actions. It is a programmable seat - is this more likely to be a switch problem, or a control module? Any other ideas? It's disconcerting and dangerous. Any help would be great!
Have a 2000 Volvo S80. The emission light has come on and it's states service urgent. After asking my Dad which is a mechanic about that he state that it may be a problem with me vacuum system. Air may be getting into the system that is causing the computer to read a necessity to check system. He also advised that I check all of my connecting hoses to my air filter to make sure it's secure. Well to my surprise, my air filter hose connecting to the front part of my vehicle(don't know name) but the hose connects to what seems to be the fan or grill in some way was loose. Well after connecting that still no luck. But I did notice a strange odor coming from my tail pipe along with droplets of water. What's causing these emissions problems? Anyone knows what's wrong?
I have had this happen many times once it was a burnt valve, so I had a new motor with low mile installed and ran fie for a year. Another time was a burnt valve again so I had the complete valve job done no holds barred. Many other time the check engine light would go off by itself. This time I have a check engine light and a rough idle?
keeps flashing no matter what speed im driving
My car's 4 speed (P-R-N-D-3-2-1)automatic transmission is not working properly it's slipping for R speed and making noisy jerks for any forward speed while shifting. Mileage is about 110,000. I am too much worried what to do next. A nearby mechanic says that it's some electronical fault and can be reset by vida-dice, while anotherone says that it should be opened and fully serviced. Can anybody help me with the right guidence, what I should do now. Is there any alternative transmission from any other car which can be fitted in my volvo model. Thanking in advance. (should I buy Volvo Vida-Dice from online e-bay? Would it be helpfull for me?)
This happens whenever i go around a corner or brake more than slightly.
The driver door window will not stay up when I use the electric up button. Window goes up but when it hits the top it automatically opens again. How can I reset the top position so it will stay shut?
This light has been coming on & off since April. My mechanic said it is an idiot lite and has no effect on the engine. It is annoying. How can I re-set it?
I drove down the street to the post office, went in and did not lock the doors, 2-3 minutes later, got in the car and it wouldn't start. the battery is fine, all the lights light up, but the engine won't start. It's locked up. Is there an alarm I need to shut off or something?
bought new tires Dobbs recommended replacement of struts. 150000 miles on car.
I have a replace the column switch on left side. no brights then replaced the right rear window reg and motor now no ac or radio
an estimate to see how much it would cost me to get fixed.
Driving on hwy and left rear door open light comes on. Stopped & made sure door closed. Continued on way, light cae on agn, then service air bag come on, then dash lights went off and air conditioning went off, 95 degrees outside & power windows would not work. Very hot inside auto. Pulled over and cut car off and got out to cool off. Let it sit for an hour & got back in, ignition switch didn't do anything but tried again and everything worked fine except service air bag light stayed on. Drove 200 miles home and everthing worked perfectly???
Loud whistling noise from engine after about 4 miles (very hot TEXAS weather). One mechanic thinks it might be the manifold. A Volvo forum suggests crankcase breather (or Vent Box).
This 2002 Volvo S80 is NOT a turbo.
replacement of head gasket due to lose of coolant
My car drives fine but I noticed that when I depressed hard on the accelarator I saw some white smoke from the exhaust. The car was not hot didn't drive any differently then the smoke stopped. I bought it used 104K the fuel pump was just changed from a recall could that cause the smoke problem?
I have two codes coming up preventing my car to pass emissions, the codes are: P0455 & P1633/ECM-510F. Is this going to be a hefty fix?
my 2004 Volvo S80 started to loose power when you come to complete stop. The car will hardly move. you have to press the gas pedal very slowly until the car gain speed.l took it to the dealer told me it needed a catalytic converter and a flame box cost $3000.00 Had that done still has the same problem. Now they say the Electronic Throttle Body is defective cost $1100 dollars to repair. has any one else had the problem with this car? if so what was the fix.
I just purchased a 2001 Volvo S80 T6 with 89,600 miles and want to change the oil, oil filter, and transmission filter and ATF. I need the required torque for the bolts holding the under-car stone protection pan, the oil filter housing, the oil drain plug, the transmission pan. Do you have this information?
what can it be that is leaking
when turning the steering wheel, particularly slow - like backing up or going forward turning (it does not happen on the fwy) there is a grinding noise. This started at 30K and still continues at 103K. I have had it in several shops, no one can find the problem. I have had the front upper struts and mounts replaced. I have been told they greased the steering shaft. I have had it to three volvo dealers and three private shops. My car does not seem to be one the list for recall control arm bushings. where can I go to get someone to really locate the problem? I love my car but also hate it too. My dream car is no longer a dream. I wish I could trade it off it but someone else would have to deal with the same issue and that is not fair.
how do you get to the lamp to change it ?
If you have some spare time on your hands and feel like doing a little reading and most importantly if you are interested, type into your seach engine - i use google, something like 1999 Volvo S 80 T 6 cluster panel or 1999 Volvo .....ABS Module. You can spend hours reading about things here and it starts to get confusing.
Here are my cars symptoms:
Last week sometime a red light came on suggesting I did not have my seat belt on. I did infact, but maybe since I have seldom worn it it went into shock. No actually, I was kiddding about that part, but it did come on and it has stayed on.
Then, I was unable to unlock my trunk which was weird.
finally Friday night, while driving, the ABS light came on and 20 seconds later the entire instrument panel went completley dark. Nothing worked on it.
In addition to no instrument panel, the power door locks did not work, the sunroof did not work, no interior lights worked and the ac fan worked but did not blow out cold air, only hot air.
However, the headlights worked but only the low beams, the radio worked and the windsheild wipers worked.
Yesterday, Jim disconnected the battery and left it that way for ten minutes. Reconnected and still had the same problems with instrument cluster but the locks sort of worked as well as the ac now blowing cold air and the windows working. After drinving for 1/2 day the ac cold air quit working.
This morning got in it and started it up and the entire cluster panel came on and everything worked. Did not turn on AC as I was afraid to.
So, in some way all of this is related. But thinking of parking it and leaving it while the panel works. Just would like for you to do some reading to see your thoughts. Not that important though if you have no interest. Just like to get your thoughts. By the way it has 184, 000 miles.
This problem just started last week.
What is the most common reason for cruise control to not engage. Mine currently works intermittently and seems to work best when cold. Any information would be helpful.
