Do you have a external leak or does your engine oil drop but you can not see a leak. My S60 had a leak and it was from the return pipe from the turbo to the sump.You can remove the belly plate and look from the bottom at the back off the engine.You will see the return pipe at the bottom of the turbo. If it does not leak at the there the turbo might be worn and it is blowing the oil into the intake.To check remove the intake hose and check for excess oil in the intake system.

Engine has oil leak trying to find out what the part is it coming from


There could be many places the oil is coming from. If the flame trap wasn't cleaned regularly that could be the cause so if any repair is made, make sure that is cleaned. The two most frequent spots for leaks are the turbo return line, if it's a turbo, or the rear main seal. A leak should be pretty easy to find for a mechanic but might be difficult without it on a lift if you want to find it yourself. A mechanic would clean the areas where there is oil and add a dye to the oil and trace it with an ultraviolet light. This shouldn't cost too much and will give you a definitive answer. There are several other places oil could be leaking from in the front of the engine that you may not be able to see, these could be the camshaft seals or the crank seal. Good luck and I wish you the best.

My 2002 volvo s60 fan blower motor stys on after i shut ignition switch off


Your Volvo does not have have a problem at all. The feature is what is known as a 'turbo timer' and is an important part of most turbocharged vehicles such as yours.

Your volvo is powered by a 5 cyclinder 2.4 liter engine that is turbocharged. Which means the engine works on the principle of 'forced induction' whcih helps it make more power.

A turbo like yours has a small impellor placed in the early section of the exhaust which is then spun up by heated and expanding exhaust vapors. this power is then transferred back to a 'charger or pump that actually forces additional air into the engine resulting in the ability to burn a more powerful mixture of air to fuel. Unlike your engine which even under very aggressive driving will only sustain forces at most approachign 9 thousand rpm, a turbo charger often spins with speeds in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of revolutions per minute. because of this they depend on a steady stream of engine oil to both lubricate and saturate the very rapidly spinning parts to keep them cool.

when the engine is suddenly shut off after a long or spirited drive the oil pump also stops, this could result in overheating and damage to the turbo.

As a result of this, Volvo was one of the fisrt companies to install a 'turbo timer' mechanism in its T models which as you noticed will continue to operate the fan for a pre calculated amount of time after you shut the car off in order to properly cool down the turbo.

Again your car has no problem whatsoever, this is a good thing and a nice feature to have whcih will definably lend itself to extending the overall life of your engine over time.

Volvo s60 deisel blowing sotty smoke


There are a few things that can cause sooty smoke. Check the are filter and the turbo. If its the turbo then the exhaust pipe after the turbo will have oil in it. If you can give me more info I might be able to help more if this doesn't do it for you.
