My check engine light is on so I had it diagnosed. The mechanic didn't give me the code but he says I have an air leak somewhere. It was at 12.5%. My s40 is burning more fuel than usual and I can smell fuel inside the cabin. I also have a hard start. Is my car falling apart? mileage is at 147500. Seems like I'm losing power also.

I have been to the inspection station 3 times and have failed each time because all of my emissions components were "unsupported".

the central electronic module quits and the entire inside of the car shuts down, the only thing that runs is the engine -low beam headlights-and brake lights. The electronic shifting also stops working.

I have a 2001 S80 Volvo. Randomly my car will just "cut out" and I can no longer accelerate. RPM maxs at about 1500 when this happens. I then pull over, turn the car off, wait and minute, start the car again, and it is fine until the next time it occurs. Could be right away, or might not happen for the rest of the day. Anybody have any insight into this problem?

code indicate my volvo 969 1997 has evaparitive emission system problem.. mechanic suggested to change gas cap and performed the task but code still appears after he's reset code. how the 960 1997 evap emission look like?

just was given this car,it sat for 6 months prior. when you first start it up it runs rough, the rpms fluctuate. then when you put it in drive it hesitates for a few seconds, then clears up and runs great,even at stops,no problems. but if you shut it off even for a few minutes, the same thing happens. i changed plugs & fluids because it had been sitting for awhile.not sure why it does this at starts

When I shut down heating system it continues to blow hot air.

how to replace hub assembly on 2004 volvo s60

Does the speed sensor have to be removed when replacing passenger side strut also, what about the brake line leading to the caliper.. should it be disconnected and if so where? When you remove the 2 bolts holding the strut do you need to mark them in the position they are in and are they used to get caster and camber when you align the front end?

after 1.5 - hrs of travel [city/highway no diff]

Generally runs well, but idles very, very rough when warm.

Mechanic ran codes said it was mass air flow meter/sensor. Changed it . Ran well for 1 mile then cut completly off. able to restart and limp home. What else could it be/ confused. Appreciate any help!

The repair facility said possible head gasket for an oil leak. Is it necessary to replace head gasket, or can I just keep a check on the oil level?

Is this just for basic maintanance?What would this entail?

Where can I find the timing mark on the above car? Also, any other help in setting the timing is appreciated.

significant wind noise approaching higher speeds--appears to be coming from the windshield area. is a prob on our 98 as well.

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.

whirring sound (like a sqeaking belt) coming from the engine when engine is warm and in idle, and stops (or diminshes considerably) when accelerating. The check engine light is on. Any ideas before I take it to the dealer?
