SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter in a Volvo S40 2005

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

SOURCE: 2005 Volvo S40 T5 is losing power while driving

had this problem as well.. check the oxygen sensor on it (sometimes critters like that wire) or like shel said dirty injectors or filters could be it.. bad gas is also another one... dont go to places with old tanks or that is really cheap, run at least 91

SOURCE: The OBDII scan read code P0236 y P0171 yesterday

P0236 Turbocharger Boost Sensor A Circuit Range/Performance

  • P0171 System too Lean (Bank 1)
  • P0237 Turbocharger Boost Sensor A Circuit Low
  • P0101 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Range/Performance Problem
  • i would start, given these codes, to look around the air duct assembly for signs of cracks or disconnected hoses resulting in a vacuum leak.

    SOURCE: My 2006 Volvo V50 won't start.

    Check the passenger foot area. The CEM is located there and many time passengers unplug connections with their feet unknowingly.

    There is only thin insulation between the foot area and the CEM.

    CEM= Central electronics module.

    SOURCE: I need cam timing settings

    The timing marks on the cam gears align with the timing marks in the rear timing cover. The timing mark on the crank gear aligns with the timing mark on the oil pump assembly.
    The tensioner is set by rotating the tensioner clockwise until the holes in the tabs on the left side of the tensioner are aligned, then tighten the center bolt.

    Vehicle Inspection required drive cycles.

    If your state requires periodic emmissions inspections, you may run into a problem when your vehicle has not gone through the required drive cycles after a repair, or anytime the computer was cleared. The inspection station will not pass your vehicle until the required drive cycles has been met. But nobody knows what is required of you in order to meet the criteria for drive cycles. I ran across theis website that explains the drive cycle process, and other information concerning the OBD2 diagnostic sysytem. The website is <a href=""></a>.

    What does "engine system service urgent" warning message mean?

    You can only check in hidden menu which modules have some errors (DTCs). Then you need to visit your Volvo dealer.

    Does the 2006 Volvo S40 1.8L petrol have cam belts or timing chain?

    This model has one belt for the cam drive system, along with an oil-filled pretensioner. Additionally, these models have VVT (Variable Valve Timing) which consists of a PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) valve and associated plumbing to the hydraulic tappets. This system increases or decreases the amount of TDC overlap (cam timing) based on driving conditions resulting in enhanced performance and lowered emissions. The caveat is that one must be diligent about oil changes and usage of the proper weight oil to avoid clogging of the oil feeds to the tappets.

    P1000 FORD - On Board Diagnostic System Readiness Test Not Completed (OBD2 Drive Cycle) Google this "Ford OBD2 drive cycle" to read the procedure

    1 Answer


    A drive cycle is a test that the on board computer performs while you drive the car to prove out all the systems on the car that control tailpipe emissions, if it finds a problem it will trigger a check engine light and and the drive cycle will not complete. The correct name of this is the "OBD2 ELECTRONIC ENGINE CONTROL DRIVE CYCLE TEST". "OBD2" is short for On Board Diagnostics generation 2. The test is just driving the car at various speeds, stop and go traffic and idle time, make sure you have at least 5 gallons of gas in the tank as well. Many folks disconnect the battery to clear a Check Engine light when a smog is due, this resets the computer (known as the PCM) and then you must complete a OBD2 drive cycle, which of course will turn the Check Engine light back on.

    What is drive cycle miles to make ready emission test on ford f150 5.0 engine?

    a drive cycle is not measured in miles driven but in the type of driving done, here is a ford drive cycle procedure to clear the not ready code.

    Ford Motor Company Driving Cycle Description of OBDII Drive Cycle
    The following procedure is designed to execute and complete the OBDII monitors and to clear the Ford P1000, I/M readiness code. To complete a specific monitor for repair verification, follow steps 1 through 4, then continue with the step described by the appropriate monitor found under the "OBDII Monitor Exercised" column. When the ambient air temperature is outside 4.4 to 37.8°C (40 to 100° F), or the altitude is above 2438 meters (8000 feet), the EVAP monitor will not run. If the P1000 code must be cleared in these conditions, the PCM must detect them once (twice on some applications) before the EVAP monitor can be "bypassed" and the P1000 cleared. The Evap "bypassing" procedure is described in the following drive cycle.
    The OBDII Drive Cycle will be performed using a scan tool. Consult the instruction manual for each described function. NOTE: A detailed description of a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Reset is found in this section, refer to the table of contents.
    Drive Cycle Recommendations:
    1. Most OBDII monitors will complete more readily using a "steady foot" driving style during cruise or acceleration modes. Operating the throttle in a "smooth" fashion will minimize the time required for monitor completion.
    2. Fuel tank level should be between 1/2 and 3/4 fill with 3/4 fill being the most desirable.
    3. The Evaporative Monitor can only operate during the first 30 minutes of engine operation. When executing the procedure for this monitor, stay in part throttle mode and drive in a smooth fashion to minimize "fuel slosh".

    For best results, follow each of the following steps as accurately as possible:

    I have ust serviced my 2001 volvo s40 and now the

    did the sevice light come on before you serviced it? when you "serviced" it I assume you changed the oil and now need the service light reset.
    I bought the 1998 S70. it got time to change the oil. Being how I am I changed the oil myself. I had to call dealership about resetting the service light.
    they said $29.96.
    I said 29.95?!!! how much if YOU would have changed my oil and reset the light?
    they said $29.95.
    so I learned you need to access the OBDII to reset the light.after service. hope this helps.
