How do You change the antifreeze on a 2002 Volvo S40 1.9t


There will be a drain plug in the bottom of the Radiator so you can drain the old Coolant out. Close the drain plug and refill from the Coolant Tank on the inner fender well. Fill it with the engine off then start it up and finish filling to the full line on the coolant tank.

Wait...you already drained the oil so are you needing to replace the oil filter? The diesel fuel filter is a separate filter. Please clarify.

What does SERVICE warninglight mean?


The spanner symbol usually pops up at the recommended service interval for the engine.
A. standard service would include change of Engine oil, oil filter, air filter and possibly plugs.
All other major components and fluids should be checked at this point too, and replaced if needed.
Oil and filters is the minimum to ensure trouble free motoring.

2001 s40 volvo diesel .. turbo oil leak ??


Could be the Turbo oil return pipe seal, its a cheap about $10 but you need to get to the pipe.
Its just a bit tricky to reach and you will need the gasket to go on the other end of the pipe when you take it off.
Its a well know fault check the Volvo Forums web site.

Brown foamy sludge build-up in oil dipstick tube. Is this something I can remove and clean myself? Am somewhat mechanically inclined.


Cracked head or blown head gasket. This is a result of coolant or water mixing with the oil. There may also be signs of this in the coolant in the radiator
