Q: AWD failure on 2004 Volvo S60

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My car's AWD quits working. What could possibly be wrong by most accounts? I was told the OIL Pump needs to be replaced. I thought oil pump functions in circulating oil to lubricate engine components. What's that got to do with kicking in the AWD? Sorry, I just probably am so naive about car mechanics.

you need to locate an independent shop that specializes
in Volvo only. ask other owners, they'll tell you who are
good guys. believe me, nobody else can work on these cars.
Hi, thanks for the idea! It was actually a Volvo dealership's service who reported they were getting an error message from the oil pump when they ran a diagnostics. I should have also known then to ask about whether they checked the oil pressure before being conclusive. But given that is true, I am still a bit doubtful about the connection of any problems in the oil pump to kicking the AWD to function. They are saying the cost for the oil pump fix will be $860+. I would be willing to get it done, bottom line question is - will it ultimately resolve the AWD malfunctioning?
