Volvo S40 Trip Computer Problem


Could be a software problem if so it needs to be done by volvo dealership. If someone other than a Volvo dealer attempted it and it went wrong - there's a fair chance you could end up with a non-functioning car and a very large bill to get it working again.

My volvo s40 t5 2005 is suddenly losing power as if running out of petrol, then power kicks in again. computers at volvo pick nothing up..scary..as i never know when it is going to happen.


if computers arent picking anything up its not an electrical fault, sounds like your surging because of bad fuel or blocked injectors, run some fuel cleaner through the car and see if that makes a difference. fuel filters may need to be changed but try the cleaner first.

2001 Volvo S40 1.9T - oil leaking into turbo


It's very common for the turbo return line seal to leak. That is what I would check first, when it leaks, it will spray oil all over the turbo lines and the rear of the engine.
