Question Answered: My car has white thick smoke coming out the back.
April 28, 2015, 07:10 AM
Could be because of a multitude of things. Coolant entering the combustion chamber due to damaged headgasket or other issue. One thing is for sure if the smoke is there, it's not a good sign. You need to have this looked at by a SAAB specialist so they can determine what if any repairs are needed.
Question Answered: what can cause white smoke out the tailpipe? With no water in the engine oil?

White smoke is generally caused by water vapors and could be caused by a myriad of things without showing in the engine oil. Same thing applies if the smoke is more of a bluish tint which would be oil vapors. I recommend you take the car to have it diagnosed by a Volvo specialist with the proper knowledge.

Your problem could be caused by several different issued, but without having a complete diagnosis it's going to be very hard to say and it could be almost anything! I recommend you bring the car to a Volvo specialist to have it looked at.
Question Answered: my fuel pump needs to be checked for recall. do I pay for this or does the compa

If your car has a starting problem, you will be charged to have that looked at. However, if the diagnosis shows that there is an open recall on your car AND if the applied recall "fix" is the cause of your starting issue, then there would be no charge to repair.

Yes, csubak30 is most likely right! You need to have the car diagnosed properly first however, that way you wont spend money unnecessarily! Bring it to a Volvo specialist!
Question Answered: What are the names for the various components needing software updates?

Your car should always have the latest software installed! Even if that does not "fix" the problem it will allow the problem to be accurately diagnosed if you have the latest software. It might even take care of your complaint!
Question Answered: My heating blower still blows air but it is not warm?
March 19, 2014, 09:28 AM
No hot air could be anything from a defective thermostat to a control module needing replacement or possibly just a software update for the climate control module! You should take the car to a Volvo specialist and have them diagnose it for you. This way you'll know what needs to be repaired instead of guessing and maybe even spending money on repairs not needed.
