With the car parked, rub your hand over the treads of your tire...unusually bumpy? compare to the fronts... if a tire is out of balance, esp. in the rear, it can make alot of noise...
solution is to replace tire and rebalance

I have a 2007 Volvo s40 that makes a loud growling humming sound when driving just had new tires put on and it didn't change the noise.


You may have a faulty wheel bearing, if it's the front you may feel it in the steering wheel, turning side to side the noise may increase or decrease. If the noise is coming from the rear, you may feel it in your seat.

There is an intermittent noise from a valve on top of the cylinder head very close to the timing belt on my S40. What could it be? I am still driving. Would it have any adverse effect on the engine? How...


If it's a "clicking" sound, (metallic) that's usually bad. If it's less of a pronounced sound, it (could be) a valve sticking but that's being pretty optimistic.

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

2006 volvo s40 50,000 mi. noticed a noise under hood that sounded like a belt slipping. sounded more like it was coming from the back of the motor. With the car running,I took the oil dip stick out and the...


The oil filter housing also houses the pcv system. What causes the noise is that there is a check valve in the pcv system that is supposed to regulate the pressure in the crankcase. The valve gets stuck and causes vacuum to build in the crankcase, which in turn sucks air wherever it can causing the noise, which is also why when you pull the dipstick it stops. This can also cause a check engine light with codes for fuel trim. The oil filter housing will need to be replaced. Good news is that Volvo extended the warranty on these to 100K miles so it should be free of charge at the dealer. One thing to watch for is oil leaks after the replacement from the camshaft seals. If air can get past a seal, usually oil can too. If the seals leak too long it can contaminate the timing belt and cause it to break, which causes a lot of damage.

2004 Volvo S40 Noise and check engine light. Any ideas?


If the noise is a whistling or screeching type noise it means the breather assembly (integrated in the oil filter housing) has gone bad, its part of the PCV system. Good news is they are on an extended warranty now, I believe 10 years, 100K miles. Take it to the dealer for a free fix :)

No fuel


the fuel pump relay is up under the drivers pedals right hand side white relay, only thing is it wont be the relay thats at fault, it will either be the intank fuel pump/sender, or a loose terminal on the connector on the pump/sender under the black square panel under the rear seat base, under carpet, unfortunately it all comes as one unit. {worked for kings volvo dealer for 13 years} ade.
