My ac in my 06 Volvo s40 says it's full when I try to recharge it, ac on high, is there a fuse or relay that could have gone bad? And how do you check to see if it's the compressor?
And the engine goes on.
fan for heat & air stopped blowing
After driving a small trip ( round trip 3 miles ) after the light turned green I went press the gas pedal and got no accrleration and crept back home at 2 to 4 miles an hour. Please Inform me of any known issues that would cause this problem
same all the time sits for awhile then 15 great minutes of cold air then hot all the time ..this goes on
Even with headlamp switch off, everything is on
Middle of driving and the emergency lights come on. It will stop for a few mins and do it again. The batter in the car is brand new.
It seems to be running fine, no funny noises but I have a message saying it needs regular maintenance check so wanting to know what a mechanic would be looking for?
Engine is making a bad clicking noise at higher rpms. When it idles, the click is soft and can barely hear it but once you get on the gas it sounds like a metal card in bike spokes. Could it be the valves? If so, roughly how much does that cost to fix?
When I apply the brakes, the steering wheel shakes and shudders. Happens pretty much every time I hit the brakes
Even when my daytime lights are on the highbeams will come on by themselves. I have tried shutting them back off but they stay on. I can hear a clicking noise over on the passenger side of my vehicle every time they pop on also. What could possibly be causing this and is there a way to fix it without bringing it in and getting a huge bill?
I took it to a Mecanic and he drove it around he said it was smooth when driving which it is so he said it can't be the just started saying time for regular maintenance as well.
my son is going to drive his Volvo s40 1000 miles and we are trying to decide if we need to do the timing belt first. Plus the shop quoted us replacement for TB tensioner pulley, TB idler pulley, frnt crankshaft seal, water pump, thermostate and access drive belts. Do I need to do all this which is over $1300.
