Heated 02s? Is there a heater circuit for the 02 systems?
Car only has 60km on clock. 2007 model
I have a Volvo S80 T6 and it runs fine, I just have a small battery for it. I can't use the radio or leave the doors open or lights on for longer than a few minutes. One day I started it and it turned on, but sounded like it wasn't getting any gas. It had like a cough, then it died. So I jumped it and tried again thinking the battery was just weak, but it continued making the loud noise and shaking so I gave up. I've had numerous people check it out, but nobody can figure it out. I know my alternator, battery and spark plugs are good... What could it be? I really need this car for school and work. I plan on selling it after I fix it because I can't keep up with the expensive costs of repair or parts, but I need it for now. Anything helps. I'm also planning on getting brand new spark plugs and a battery, but what would I have to do if it isn't getting any gas?
Heater blowing hot turned heat blower to lowest level. Left truck running then heater quit working all together.
first my car wouldnt start so i got a jump and as i was driving down the street my headlights stopped working and all my warning lights came on now it feels like the brakes are on and it doesnt want to accelerate
Both have 3.2 engines and have about 97k miles
My volvo has 120,000 miles and experienced transmission damages after being towed, what I believe was improperly (from behind while the car was in park), because the location of my parking permit changed with out me being properly notified.

I believe the two events are related, yet there is no "proof" and the towing company is refusing to pay for it. I have an invoice with the parts that were replaced, and the towing company says it is from "normal wear and tear" but it seems like a stretch.

I am wondering if 120,000 miles is "normal" for transmissions to have issues. My car has been taken care of since I owned it, so it seems very strange, as my family has always had volvos that hit over 200,000 miles with no problems.

Parts that had to be replaced include the torque converter, valve body, shift solenoid, transmission pump.

Please let me know if this can some how be argued that it was from towing, as I really believe it was and don't think that my failure to be notified properly is a reason for me to be out $2500.
car was running but slipped in 3rd gear. changed the shift solenoids out, went to start it and nothing, not even compression. Checked timing, that was ok. what else could it be?
key is stuck in ignition and wont come out of park
the oil pressure light goes off once the car is started. When I turn on the car the light does not come on. Only when The ignition switch turn on a all warning light comes on. all will go of except the oil pressure light. but does not come on once the car is started.
all of the fuses are fine
