Question about Volvo S40
My engine check light comes on and stays on for weeks then goes off and not long and comes back on. What could be the possible causes., oil and filters have been changed. oil dip stick has been checked. oil filler cao has been checked.
The check engine light is turned on by the computer when the computer detects a problem. what happens is the computer stores a code or codes with the sensor or circuit problem, the first thing you need to do is go to an auto parts store and have the computer scanned for stored codes. they will give you a printout with the codes. if you get me the codes i will be able to help you solve this problem, for example the code would read like this PO301 cylinder 1 misfire detected.get me the codes and list the year,make and ,odel with engine size and i will help. note; the auto parts stores scan computer free of charge. hope this helps good day.

Your dip stick tube is your fill tube for your transmission . Make sure your transmission oil is at opperating temp before servicing some instructions are written on the dip stick , Use a small funnel , Add a little at a time (cup). Use the proper fluid , check regularly

It is underneath near the oil pan. Not really a filter, but the cover to the filter. Should be a black round looking thing. Remove this, and the paper filter element is inside. Be careful not to crack or damage the cover.

Yes that is correct. The only filter is inside the fuel tank, and as I recall its a non exchangeable filter. It just gets replaced with the fuel pump when it goes bad

Look down where the white circle is and you will see a black round casing with a 32mm (i think) nut on it. It helps to remove the air intake hose in front of the white circle for easier access.
