Question about 2005 Volvo S40

"i" light on s40

Hi, I was wondering about a car I am considering buying. It is an '06 volvo s40, 39,000 miles. It was a corporate fleet car with regular servicing. It only had one accident reported.

While I was test driving the car, however, I noticed it said "this vehicle is due for regular maintenance" and the information (red) indicator light was on. Does that light come on for an oil change, or could the problem be something else?

The red light was not blinking. Thank you so much for your help.

A lot of new cars have this as a reminder for the owner to change the oil and when this is done the mechanic should reset the light to go out ,look in the owners manuel there should be something in it to tell you about this light other issues that will arise.

How long ago was your fuel filter replaced? The code should be able to be diagnosed. Can buy a diagnostic tool from AutoZone... to be able to trace your problem. Your manual should also be able to
tell you how to read and obtain your code fault #. Sounds like your engine is starving for fuel!

It is time for my 2006 volvo s40 to have its 30,000 mile service. the volvo dealership is going to charge me about $350, whereas express tune and lube will charge me $184. both tell me the basic info...


I think that the best service comes at a dealer, in general, but it's not always necessary to have service performed at the dealer, especially when trying to economize.

I couldn't find online information about the 2006 Volvo S40, so that means that buying the service manual should help to find the information that you require.

Good luck on choosing a service center for maintenance of your vehicle.

Hi,you should change cambelt pully(there is a bearing inside pully before it worn out completely,it will cause high friction and heat to burn out your bell and rattling noise).buy cambelt pully from the dealer then take it to the garage ask them to put it in for you (labor about 30.00 dollars)...the rest is ok to wait until 150.000 miles.
good luck!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, Since you have both codes Fuel system lean and MAF low I would bet money on that you have an intake air leak after the throttle. Check all hoses connected to the intake manifold, gaskets, injectors are put in place etc.
