Pcm controls compressor but probably has poor connection at 2 pin connector for compressor or fail compressor clutch. Dealer will probably try to tell you that they cannot program use computter to a saurn but that is incorrect.Would have another mechanic check this problem out.Dealer usuallt charges $65 to$100 for checkout.

All I can say is do some research online find a REPUTABLE shop and let them drive it until it dies. Three things are needed for an engine to run: spark, fuel, compression. I doubt it is a compression problem being that it is a new engine. Something is causing either spark or fuel to drop out, a good mechanic should be able to quickly identify what is missing from the equation. Find a shop with a lab scope that can test sensors that send signals to the engine computer. It could be as simple as a fuel pump getting hot and quitting. Good Luck!

I am told my 1993 Isuzu trooper needs a 1200.00 computer to get it back in working order. I've already had a new trans and clutch put in as well as other repairs. #1)Can I get this used and cheaper? #2)...

That sounds awfully high - First, I'd get a second opinion. Then if it's a OBC - yes you can get them used and rebuilt for ALOT less than $1200 - And finally - YES they are excellent rigs and you can easily get 200k out of it. (I know, I had one, sold it w/218k on it and now it's closing in on 300k)

I have a 2006 s40 2.4i that needs an alternator and battery. I was told that it will get an updated alternator that also would requier an updated ac suction line. Can I still get a factory alternator...

I need a new alternator as well (2006 S40, 2.4ti, 80K miles) and the lowest quote I'm getting is $875. The dealer wants $950, an independent mechanic I trust quoted $930. You would think they could replace the part without all the extra nonsense -- in most other cars, they probably could. Volvo has made it unnecesarily difficult with the way they've designed this car. This is the first and last Volvo I will ever purchase.

The mechanic who quoted $875 also said he has someone in town who could replace the non-working parts of my current alternator and get it working again for about $575. But I wouldn't have a car for 2 full days.
