SOURCE: ENGINE MISFIRE AND SHAKING

check your wire harness on the top of the engine. Volvo must have bought harnesses from Mercedes. The insulation just cracks and disintegrates, then the wires short. Not good for an ignition system.Once they short It can fry the circuit for that cylinder in the computer. Does not set a code other than Misfire.

SOURCE: How do you reset the check engine light on a volvo

The Check Engine light has nothing to do with changing the oil. The light is on because there is a problem with the emissions system. Even if you reset the light it will just come back on unless the problem causing it to come on is repaired. You will need to have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. That tool will retrieve the code that has been set by the ECU. The code will tell you what part is being effected, but not necessarily what part or parts are defective. To determine that takes training, experience, and diagnostic skills. I suggest you seek professional help. If the engine is running fine there is no hurry but if it is not running as it should, then do not put this off.

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

I put unleaded fuel into a diesel and after draining fuel car will not turn over


Won't turn over or won't start? If it won't start - chances are good the oil must be changed and the glow plugs looked at. Need more information on this - specifically, does the engine attempt to run at all? Any DTCs?

Do a Compression Test, do a VISUAL INSPECTION of the Spark Plugs. If there is a COLOR DIFFERENCE and / or the Spark plugs on Cylinder 1 and 2 are CLEAN. you have a blown head gasket.

HELLO,I OWN A S4O VOLVO,THAT STUMBLES ON ACCELERATION & LOSES POWER PLEASE CAN YOU HELP!!!!


the may be caused by a misfire,the first thing to do is scan the computer for any stored codes as these codes can help a great deal, so start with the scanning first, auto zone and some other part stores will scan it for free ,just write down the codes and we will go from there.

2001 Volvo s40/ takes 5-10 seconds to start.


fuel filter is at right side of gas tank undernieth car
by pumping the gas all you are doing is opening the throttle plates alowing some air.its not uncomin for injection cars with higher mileage to need alittle more air for start up.
check ECT sensor.
clean throttle plates
is check engine light on?
