It is the check engine light. The car will have to be brought to any mechanic who can put a code reader on it and pinpoint exact problem. The light came on probably due to faulty sensor. Mabey Oxygen sensor if it is the emission system

    Check engine light (emission system service required) Help?!?!

    There may be problem with the mass air flow sensor (very common with Volvo). This causes the fuel system to malfunction.

    You may have noticed increased fuel consumption, loss of power and general 'lazyness'.

    Better to take it to authorized Volvo service for a checkup/fix.

    Emission light is on, service light is on, missfire,

    all that has nothing to do with this lights being on, you have a malfunction in the electronic engine controls, to find out what it is have the dealer test the system for trouble codes which are stored in the memeory of the cars computer whenever this light(s) comes on.

    My 1985 Volvo GL station wagon won't pass smog the smog inspector said its probably the catalytic converter. How much on average does that cost to replace?

    Since you did not post the engine size of your GL

    My answer is base on a

    GL L4 2.3 Liter L4 2.3 Liter engine.

    The catalytic converter will cost you $181 if your car has California Emission system.

    $248 for Fed. emission system.

    Gaskets will cost you under $25

    Look at the sticker under the hood or the inner fender for more information.

    Labor is under 2 hours.

    Shop around will save you money.

    Volvo v40 stalling when idling

    If the car shakes and stalls at lights stop signs etc. I would check the egr ( exhaust recirculator valve) first this valve should open when in driving mode and close immediately when engine comes back to idle. to check this find the valve on the intake manifold ( looks like a mushroom) remove vaccuum line and plug hose drive the car and see if it fixes the problem. If it does get one from local parts store. Most brands such as standard are universal and come with baffles that must be installed. do not leave the valve disconnected the engine will "ping" when driving forcing you to buy higher octane gas. It is also illegal to remove this unit for emission reasons.
