Do Not Operate if the Oil Light is on!!!!!!!!! Get it to a Mechanic and have it checked to make sure that it is not a bad oil pump.

SOURCE: 2001 volvo s40 trouble code P0015

This is a common issue particularly with vehicles that have had some neglect to the oil change routine. The VVT solenoid on the top of the valve cover gets clogged with thickened or sludged oil.

Replace the VVT solenoid and gasket with a new unit and clear the codes.

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.

My airbag light came on in my 2001 Volvo S40. I don't know why. And I don't know how to get it off. I am also getting a check engine light.


Take battery loose and put back on. If this clears it and then later does it again. You need to get the trouble codes from : Autozone.com

I have volvo s40 2004 The engine light comes


Sounds like your dealer is feeling its way. which sensor did they say they changed and why. Do not pay for this ****, you took it to the dealer with a warning light and they say they changed something in order to attempt to cure the warning but they failed. About as much use as changing the seat covers and emptying the ash trays! When you say noise, is this a squeal, a crunch, is it continuous or is it during change gear. Does the car slip when in gear, is there vibration. Check your engine oil and transmission oil levels

Vilvo s40 serviced in june; engine oil warning


most definitely the cylinder head gasket is gone.the oil does not just disappear,it finds its way to the radiator,i.e. mixes with the water.unplug the rediator cap with care(when the engine is cold)and u will see some kind of sludge,creamy colour,which confirms that the cylinder head gasket is burnt.u need an engineer to do the job for u.

What does SERVICE warninglight mean?


The spanner symbol usually pops up at the recommended service interval for the engine.
A. standard service would include change of Engine oil, oil filter, air filter and possibly plugs.
All other major components and fluids should be checked at this point too, and replaced if needed.
Oil and filters is the minimum to ensure trouble free motoring.
