P0442 is a small leak somewhere in the emmission system, check the vacuum lines, or have a smoke test done, to find the leak.

An update on my 2000 Volvo s80T6. The fluid level is perfect and the fluid looks and smells brand new. When I shifted the sequential shift into third, the car will drive forward just fine. Reverse


The T6 is notorious for trans problems. I suggest you seek out a reputable trans shop with FULL knowledge of this gearbox as it may be manufactured by GM, it is made to Volvo Specs.

Car will not go when you press the excelerator until the engine warms up a little bit. Two codes came up P0442 and misfire.


P0442 Means you have a leak in your EVAP system.
The EVAP system prevents gas vapors from entering the air .
This code can be set by a leak in the lines or a clogged charcoal canister.
Most common reason is If you did not put your gas cap on all the way.
As of the misfire was it a random Code p0300 or did It state which cyilender like P0301

Hope this helps

Radio code for 1999 volvo s70


Look in your owners manual usually there is a little card that has the code in there or in the booklet. Otherwise you will have to go to the dealer for the code.

Oil in the water


It is probably transmission fluid coming in from the trans cooler in the radiator. I would suspect it needs a new radiator.

Check engine light code PO442


You likely won't notice any drivability problems. P0442 indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. It means a very small leak has been detected. In fact, the leak can be from a hole as small as 0.04" in diameter. 
The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage.
Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

With a P0442, the most common repair is to Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back. Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses.

Good luck and hope this helps
