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 :)

SOURCE: 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

Volvo s40 engine noise


you have to understand a service engine soon indicator is letting you know the engine is not running at peak performance and creating unexceptable amounts of emmisions. your engine runs peak at 14-7-1, 14 part air.7 part fuel, 1 combustion stroke, any different it triggers the lite. If your tapping is engine related ,say valve clearence valve.does not seat properly you lose compression on the stroke,improper burn thus the light... in short find the source of the tap and fix

2000 volvo s40, replaced dash cluster and no dash lights. this did not fix no lights. Any ideas?


Assume you checked 10A fuse 5 in the engine compatment fuse and relay box. The output loops through the passenger compartment fuse and relay box and connects directly to the cluster. Also in the latter box, is 10A fuse 11 which feeds the cluster. Also verify that a black ground wire is connected.

2003 Volvo S40 making a tap. tap, tap, silent (repeated continually) while the engine is running. Noise appears to be coming from the top of the engine. Engine has been recently preplaced but the tap...


Please check to see if the slapping noise is from the belts, the idler , the water pump or alternator. Also check if this is the tappets or the valves, if so this might require a check up after removing the valve door covers. Check for oil pump pressure and also for settings of the valves.
