Question about 2000 Volvo S40

1998 S70 manual (wont change gear until idle is under 2500rpm)

I just bought a 1998 S70 with a manual transmision and the problem it has is that when the car is moving, and the rpm is over 2500 rpms, I wont be able to change gear until the rpm is down to about 2500rpm) then shifting becomes no problem.
The engine was recently changed on this car and problem started since.
could it be a software issue or something to do with the sensors.

    Thanks for the reply kf4rwe

    I can put it in nutral evn when rpm is high but not into the next gear, only until rpm is about 2500. also the rpm needle is slower when dropping only after shifting gears and when car is moving.

Being it is a manual transmission and the engine was removed, it is likely the clutch and pressure plate not releasing completely at high rpms.

1998 volvo s70. Gearshift has been sticking - must pull down lock to get it fully into "park". Problem today is that alarm sounds when you open the door or turn the key in the ignition. ...


There is a cable that connects your gearshift to the ignition switch, when this cable stretches, it does not allow the gearshift assembly to move when you have the key turned. Removed the assembly around the gear shift assembly and inspect this cable. Removed the cable and manually actuate the lever. See if this fixes the problem as it is common in the S70/C70/V70s that are pre 2000

STARTS and runs well but quits and wont start again until it sits awhile.Acts like vapor lock,checked fuel and spark,compression and timing,all good.Replaced fuel filter,mass air sensor and cut holes in...


I had the same problem but when I changed the Mass Air Flow it was solved. I am suprised that you changed the MAF and you are still getting problems. Please get an OBD check. The problem must be having something to do with electronics and the ODB will definetly be able to read it.

Idle too high +goes higher when put in gear (manual transmision


IAC valve problem. Nissan has a updated harness (with one way diode inside of the harness) to prevent backfeeding for the IAC valve and a new IAC valve also gets installed. That's where I would look. IAC valve or "idle air control" valve.
