SOURCE: Car wont start, no clicks no sound

make sure you have power getting to your starter when you crank. check the small nut on the starter. should have 12 v or very close to it. this will tell you if your getting power to the starter or if somethign before the starter and something maybe with your anti theft system or not. its hard to say online cause of that anti theft. doest the light flash at all? the anti theft light?

if your getting power to the starter when you crank make sure your getting good power to the starter by turning on the head lights and see if they dim. a good starter will cause the headlites to dim when attempting to start. if nothing dims check connections. or assume bad starter motor. make sure your also getting power to the main starter stud as well.

good luck

You may want to try replacing the spark plug wires. I had a problem with my car not starting occasionally - eventually I figured out that it happened more when it had just rained or was particularly damp outside. This was because when it was wetter outside, the air was more conductive and the electricity would be more likely to spark to the engine block instead of going to the spark plugs. Although you may still see sparks in the spark plugs when this is happening, they will be weaker and may just not be strong enough to get it started.

If you go outside at night and start the engine with the hood open and can see sparks flying from the wires to your engine block or other parts of your car (they may be very faint), you may want to go replace your wires.

SOURCE: rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas

it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

2001 Volvo s40 seems to stall and not start for ten to 15 min. Also has high temperature reading that is false as car is not really hot.

You need to look at the temp sending unit it's probably faulty anthor issue with volvo is dirty throttle body's this raises havoc on the car they idle up down all over the map also you should change the thermostat too as a precautionary measure make sure it's the right temp for your year of your car thanx Chris

My 2004 volov s40 is having starting problems

It sounds like the fuel pressure regulator diaphragm is broken, causing fuel to flood the engine when first started, then clear up and run fine.This is a common problem. let the vehicle sit for a few hours , then pulling off the vacuum hose to the regulator. Fuel may dribble out of the hose indicating bad regulator.You can also smell the end of the hose for a raw gas smell.

Hi I am having problems with sometimes when accelerating my Volvo s40 1.6 diesel the revs are slow to move up from 20000 and sometimes won't go over 30000. The guy I bought it from said he recently change...

Dear sir As you said, partical filter is new, then you can check. Start the car and accelrate it in idel condition in parking if it response is normal as per you pressing the accelretor or not, if it is not then problem with fuel delivery to engine is not getting proper fuel pressure check fuel line for leakage,check fuel line for pinched some where, if every thing is fine then may any one of fuel injector is faulty. And if it works fine in idle then no problem in fuel system and air system. Next you check is car creating a problem while driving? If yes then it is problem of clutch over riding or burn out replace clutch kit problem will solve if any issue let me know. Thanks Yogesh

Volvo s40 engine ticks, revs and cuts out

goodday! I asked a question about my S40 Volvo 2001 high idle. The answer is great, but I did not use it because I found out that it the car was giving another fault.

there are times when the engine woulld crank for a long time without firirng. when it finally does it would be powerless to an extent that it doesn't respond to the gas padel. its like it activates some form of inhibitor. When it behaves like that the only way to eventually start it is to disconnect the battery and wait for a few seconds. Now I wonder if it is still the idle motor

I have a 2001 volvo s40. It runsa smoothly most of the 99% of the time but when i come to a stop at a light or stop sign, it stalls out! I hear it could be a ( Idle air controll motor) It starts right back...

Sounds like your ETM - Electronic Throttle Module.

Search for xemodex. He has a direct replacement for 1999-2001 Volvos. I ordered mine from him, and its much better now.

Get a quote from your dealer, then compare the prices.
