Question about Volvo XC70

2001 volvo xc70 engine leaking

10 minutes after I bought it, the turbo blew. When the turbo was replaced, the engine started to leak......mechanic says where the block and girdle meet are leaking????? Did not want to attempt to fix it. (by pulling out the engine and torquing down the bolts) recommended replacing the engine. I have had two mechanics say the the engine is leaking..........they are totally awed at this fact. Does this sound correct???? I have not even had this car in my driveway for a week. It has been at the mechanics for 4 months being diagnosed by multiple mechanics........please help

    Everything is intact with the turbo and lines. The oil can be seen leaking from the motor at the back.............there is a dye added to the oil so the mechanics can see it easier. Thanks for the idea though!

2005 xc70 volvo ceiling leak when it rain


Sounds like rubber seal is leaking, check the rubber seals along the side of the windshield and along the inner door. The seal can be easily replaced or patched with silicon sealeant.

Hope this helps

Volvo XC70 I have had several computer errors


Check two items, chassey grounds by battery, transmission and starter. Also, check to make sure the alternator is providing enough voltage, should be around 14 amps. Had a similar problem with my 2002 XC70, replacing the alternator fixed it! I used the Car Talk website to find a good local mechanic vs. the stealer.

2001 Volvo s40 oil leaking in turbo, smokes white smoke and turbo not kicking in. I have a new head, timing belt waterpump, oxygen sens. valve job, cam pulley all changed. It is still smoking and no turbo....


Water in combustion chamber makes white smoke--suspect that the head gasket is leaking water into the chamber. If oil leaking around turbo, it may have a bad bearing and bad oil seal. Check waste gate valve and control.

The brakes on my volvo xc70 2005 are hard to push and dont have any assistance. It make a swish sound when I push the pedal. it does brae though but I have to push really hard! Might it be the master vac?


Sounds like you have lost vacume to the break booster, chk for a leak in the hose from engine to the booster, if no leak in hose than the booster is bad.

SRS light stays on-mechanic says they want you to replace ''things'' and check system out after 10 years, so light automatically comes on and stays on. If car was never in a crash, not necessary. Correct?...


your mechanic is obviously trying to get you to pay for minute repairs...unless something is obviously wrong it could be a fuse...or their might be a problem...cant be sure without seeing the vehicle myself...but dont go paying for a bunch of random replacements it wont change the light situation....and yes it is turboed

2001 Volvo S40 1.9T - oil leaking into turbo


It's very common for the turbo return line seal to leak. That is what I would check first, when it leaks, it will spray oil all over the turbo lines and the rear of the engine.

2001 s40 volvo diesel .. turbo oil leak ??


Could be the Turbo oil return pipe seal, its a cheap about $10 but you need to get to the pipe.
Its just a bit tricky to reach and you will need the gasket to go on the other end of the pipe when you take it off.
Its a well know fault check the Volvo Forums web site.

Volvo 1998 v70 tdi loss of power and a lot of black smoke lamda fuel light has been on since timming belts replaced been told its the turbo pump runnig at half is this possible and where is the turbo pump...


I don't know about the turbo running at half, but I can give you two ideas.

If it only started after the timing belt was replaced there is a very good chance that the timing is off. The car has very specific instructions due to the variable valve timing.

There is also a chance that there is a hole in one of the turbo hoses. One way to check for a leaking turbo hose is to put the car in reverse and set the parking brake. have someone listen for a large air leak while you power stall the engine. if there is a leak it will make a lot of noise and you can feel for it with your hand, just don't burn yourself.

DO NOT POWERSTALL THE ENGINE MORE THAT THIRTY SECONDS AT A TIME AND NO MORE THAN TWICE. IT WILL GET VERY HOT VERY QUICKLY.

DO NOT SHUT OFF THE ENGINE RIGHT AFTER POWERSTALLING. THERE IS TO MUCH HEAT AND COULD CAUSE DAMAGE. LET THE ENGINE IDLE FOR THREE MINUTES AND IT WILL BE FINE.


I hope this helps
