My fan motor is not turning off or adjusting the speed that the fan blows.
I hardly drive the Volvo, maybe one month out of the year. Sitting in my garage the whole time. Any suggestion how to maintain my car while sitting in my garage for long period of time? Should I take my battery out or leave it in? Should I keep the gas almost empty or full before parking in the garage for months?
after a cold start, I hear a rumbling/crackling noise from the left front of the car when the car is moving very slowly (5mph when I don't press the gas and slowly moving forward). I do not hear any noise when going over 10 mph. After the car warms up the noise goes away. Other than that the car runs fine. Could it be a bearing problem.
My car takes ti time to start also leaks oil when car heats up
What is a transmission sensor and what does it do and how does it work in the vehcile.
what else should I check
The car has a hard start when not warm engine.
not rough, but can hear engine running while driving not quiet. Is 102K alot of miles for this car? how many miles can I expect before start having problems?
The car has 102K, engine looks very clean, drives nice, litle white exhaust at start up then went away after test drive
At 116K on a Volvo S40 1.9T, per Volvo, what scheduled maintance should be done to the car? And how much will it cost me to do the repairs?
only can turn key in ignition far enough on to start electrical items cannot turn key all the way to start car
Has trouble starting. Just recently loses engine power after driving for a bit and engine sputters.
The light came on after we pushed the button to put the car in winter mode. Have disconnected the battery and the light is still on. took it to autozone and the code they got was P1241
The local shop that diagnosed Code P0015 talked about timing problem and said only Volvo dealership has a computer that can fix the problem. The Engine-light went out by itself when I started the car, but may come back on again perhaps. What exactly is this problem in plain English and how much should it cost approximately to have it at a Volvo dealership?
My thanks in advance.
Vibrations stpped after Engine Rubber-mount was re replaced. Now the car makes a vibrating diesel-type car noise.
