2003 Volvo s40 turbo removal procedures.


You need to get a manual for this. Plus, do you have the tools to do this job. Believe me, you will need specialty tools. I would have to write a book to get you threw it. Good luck, if your a novice. Follow the manual.....

I have a 2003 Volvo s40. Recently the check engine light and DSA light have been coming simultaneously. Sometimes it is only the check engine light. The only symptom I have seen is that the car turns over...


So you really have done nothing at all

You never checked for codes
You never looked at scan tool data

You threw a part at it, with no testing

You had the check light cleared & lost ALL
Data needed to diagnose the car

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.

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.

Oil Leaking into the exhaust


hi there, there are chemicals on the market that will soften up the seals but these take time to work i would suggest changing the turbo, you will also have to remove the oil from the exhaust system this can be done with other chemicals like an upper cylinder cleaner feed directly in to the air intake but only after the turbo has be fixed
