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.

You may ask to some mechanic about replace overdrive fuse, relay, and or overdrive solenoid, that's easier if one of this is the problem! good luck!

My 95 gle volvo keeps over pressuring in the motor and oil keeps overflowing from engine oil cap


Could be a plugged PCV (positive crankcase ventilator) valve. Cheap and easy to replace.

Could also be lots of other things such as excessive blowby caused by bad piston rings or a cracked piston or damaged cylinder head allowing compression in one cylinder to leak into an adjoining cylinder.

In any case, don't continue driving until you address this. You could turn a minor problem into the need for a new engine.

1998 astra car is smoking on accelaration


It's time for an engine rebuild. Or you could get a reconditioned engine installed. All depends, if the car is in good condition and worth fixing. But it is a 15 year old car. Might be time to upgrade.

Volvo quit running


If the smoke was white, then you've probably blew the head gasket. Check for coolant in the oil as well as the coolant level. Coolant in the oil and low coolant in the radiator or reserve bottle combined are good indication of blown head gasket.

Hi my 1996 volvo 850 has been leaking a little bit of oil and smoking from what seems to be the top of the engine and from the dipstick hole, after driving the car for a little while it will make clicking...


Yes, if the pcv valve is clogged or not properly connected to the air inlet, it can allow more blowby. However, if there a lot of miles on the engine, it might be time for new piston rings. Run a compression test on all cylinders.

I just bought this tempo it starts but after i have been driving for about 20 min it starts to smoke and it starts to get hot it stops then you hav eto get a jump to start it.


It sounds like you have brought a lemon as if it hard to start when cold then its lacking compression which is worn engine piston rings and valve guides,and if it starts smoking when driving and if its BLUE smoke then its bad piston rings And if its BLACK smoke then its to much petrol getting into the engine which will also cause the engine to wear out quick as its washing the bores with fuel instead of oil,and that will also stop the engine from starting when hot,
SO if its BLUE smoke replace the engine
If BLACK smoke repair fuel fault.

Wite smok from exaust system. When starting some time wite smok and smell of burning oil. Some time do not smoking.Do not pick up from low speed fast. The engine is turbo and inter cooler


Smoke can be from rings worn out, cracked piston, valve guide seals if smokes at start up then stops, fueling issues if fuel is to rich but that smoke is usually black, also if head gasket is blown or head is cracked water burning turns into steam which looks like white smoke. This can also be why won't start just turns over.

Alarm system


I first bought a 1990 volvo turbo 760. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS VEHICLE! it was rear wheel drive and VERY easy to work on. it was a BLAST to drive and blow 5.0 mustangs off the road with a 4 cyllinder. I loved driving that car so much I bought a 1998 S70 Volvo (kept the 760 model). turns out I paid ALOT MORE for just another toyota camary with a Volvo nameplate. I didnt keep it long. it just wasnt the same. the interior started falling apart from day one.
I know the dissapointment... if it were me I would not spend any money on the alarm system. but if I did I would get the aftermarket version installed.
PLEASE dont let the timing belt break on this car!!!!! it wont be the same as your old one! it will be $4000 damage to the engine if it breaks. change it out early!
