Engine turns but not starting like it should


I have Volvo S40 T4 2.0 turbo 16V with automatic transmition, its model is 1998. I had a problem with my engine and I changed it. so now I have 2003 model of the same engine.

but have one problem and its going on my nerves... Its very fast and powerful car... but when I want to start it it takes me 2, or 3 times, and it takes long to start it... battery and alternator are good, changed all cables and jacks... checked it with hand computer ant it still say no problem...
Benzin pump and filter changed... and when it starts after a long trying the SERVICE light is on for few minutes... and i can smell the benzin from the exhaust.. and when it starts it running very good, with no problems...
And I have to say, the engine is turning very fast before it starts... so it normally running...
only it takes to long to start...

Can anyone help me please..
Thanks a lot...
Please email me the solution if u have one
thanks

Burning oil may be the cause of the rest. Bad PCV system? Worn rings? Bad valve guide seals? Fully describe how and when it burns oil.

Hello.I got my Volvo s40 2002.Its suppost to have a turbo build-in.But I cannot feel the difference,basically when is turbo starts working?Thanks!


The S 40 came with different size and spec engines and they were not all Turbo charged versions. The choice of engines available depends on which country you are in.

The turbocharger is driven by the engine's exhaust system and runs continuously but has minimal affect at low engine RPM. Unless the turbo has failed, you should feel the turbo effect kick in when you accelerate hard but there will be a brief lag .

If you have the turbo engine fitted to your 2002 model S40 you will have a " 1.9T " badge on the rear of your car under the S40 badge. The "T" designates Turbo. An engine designator badge without a "T" indicates it is not turbocharged.

The turbochargers on these S40 models will fail (especially if the car has done a lot of miles) so you should have your car examined if you feel the turbo is not functioning.

Flashing upside down arrow/ slow acceleration


This is a common problem of Volvo S40. You can try this trick to turn off the flashing arrow light.

1) Turn off Engine
2) Turn key to "On" position (Not start the engine), you will see the panel light will on
3) Step on the break paddle
4) Shift the gear from "P" to "L" 10 times
5) Turn key to " Off" position
6) Now you can start the engine.
7) If doesn't work, you can repeat the procedure.

Hope this tick help
Good luck
