Check engine light indicated air pump and check valve. estimated cost to fix provided by independent volvo mechanic $965
Persistent check engine light explained by Volvo mechanic as failed air pump. Recommended replacement along with check valve...estimate $700 or more. I declined. Was looking for way to perhaps fix with a shade tree approach...
