SOURCE: Maintenance light reset

Hi,
I've reset this particular model I held down tripmeter button turned on ignition whilst still holding it down for 20 seconds at least then Bingo sorted.
If unsure hold all buttons on speedo face down.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 2001 Volvo s40 oil leaking in turbo, smokes white

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.

SOURCE: How do you reset the check engine light on a volvo

The Check Engine light has nothing to do with changing the oil. The light is on because there is a problem with the emissions system. Even if you reset the light it will just come back on unless the problem causing it to come on is repaired. You will need to have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. That tool will retrieve the code that has been set by the ECU. The code will tell you what part is being effected, but not necessarily what part or parts are defective. To determine that takes training, experience, and diagnostic skills. I suggest you seek professional help. If the engine is running fine there is no hurry but if it is not running as it should, then do not put this off.

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.

Oil in the turbo, smoking bad!


check to make sure the turbo oil return pipe is not clogged. if it is pressure will build up causing oil leak through seal causing it to smoke.

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.
