SOURCE: 2001 Volvo S40 sensors?

Maybe you have iron debris stuck to the magnetic ABS sensor. behind the hub. Remove the sensor from behind the hub and clean it or remove the whole hub. To remove the hub you need to remove the calliper and rotor, knok off the centre dust cap and undo the 30mm nut and then the hub will slide off and you will see the sensor. When re fitting the hub, toque the nut to 120NM then 30degs more ( that is from Volvo Vadas official instructions).

I've just replaced the hub last night on my 2001 V40.

Find a transmission servicer that is not afraid of tackling a Volvo problem. This is probably why the car was for sale in the first place. Good luck!

Not all the time but when I start the car it starts very hard. When it starts hard like that and I wait a few second and put it into gear it slams into gear and sometimes won't move.


get it serviced?
hard starts are usually never getting a tuneup, (like spark plugs?)
slamming in to gear is normal if RPM is too high in park, is it.
wont move , in any gear, car wont move even in reverse.
and RPM of engine does what , sticks low, like 800 rpm
or screams at the advancement of right foot.
need lots of details. we cant drive car, but if could in 5min flat all that is clear,
eg:
transmission slips
engine weak
engine racing in park too high.
wont start and misfires when it does.
is fuel fresh, not year old.
ever get a new air filter and fuel filter. if filter is outside tank.

I have a 2001 volvo s40. It runsa smoothly most of the 99% of the time but when i come to a stop at a light or stop sign, it stalls out! I hear it could be a ( Idle air controll motor) It starts right back...


Sounds like your ETM - Electronic Throttle Module.

Search for xemodex. He has a direct replacement for 1999-2001 Volvos. I ordered mine from him, and its much better now.

Get a quote from your dealer, then compare the prices.

When i put my car into drive it jerks forward suddenly and when i put it in reverse it jerks backward also. its never done this before


1. Extremely harsh shifts from P or N, normal shifts at WOT: EPC (Electronic Pressure Control) solenoid failed. Easy fix in pan. Fix as soon as possible or hard parts will eventually break.
2. Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.
There are two thing that may be happening that you have described, but you can tell which one it will be since your driving the Blazer. Both are simple to repaire, but to change the EPC. Your going to have to drop the transmission pan so that's going to be a transmission shop and call around, the EPC can be replace the same time there draining the transmission fluid when servicing the transmission which is about $110.00 for fluid and filter replacement and additional $65.00-$80.00 for the EPC valve.
EPC (electronic pressure control) valve TPS (Throttle position sensor)
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck. If it's the EPC failure, replace as soon as possible. may casue the sunshell to fractured or splines to sheared off.

When trans. is warm after extended driving the up shifts are very hard. This only happens during extended driving periods. Around town everything shifts fine.


Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS. Good luck Auto Zone or Parts Source has this part and can be replaced with in 20 min. Both parts store will have the step by step instructions and i believe the cost is around $65.00 for the TPS which is better then a transmission replacement.
