Question about 1998 Volvo S70

1 Answer

My check engine light is on S70 Volvo 1998.

I just don't know what to do. I had driven the car 400 miles after the check engine light was cleared so it could go through some type of cycle. I thought I was home free and getting ready to go to get the inspection but I had to get more gas as the children had gotten the car on E. First the brake light start coming on then would go off. Later the check engine light came on again. But I need this inspection to pass because we have collected 2 tickets and the days to get the repair is almost up.

You will need to have your trouble codes pulled in order to determine what the problem is. If you live here in the states, go to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto and ask them to check your car for trouble codes, they will do this free of charge, write the codes down and reply back. We can begin to diagnose at that point.

Turbo oil seal is probably bad. This lets oil leak into the air intake from the turbo bearing. If smoke goes away during hard acceration, then this is probably your problem. Turbo replacement or rebuild is the fix for this.
