SOURCE: 2004 Volvo S60 gets stuck

Must be the same as my 2005 V70. Do the brake lights function? If not it's probably a microswitch and /or solenoid needs changing somewhere gearshift mechanism. Mine let me downn yesterday but everything points to this.

This sounds like the idle speed control system is full of sludge, have it cleaned.

SOURCE: where is the pollen filter and how do i change it

usually the cabin air filter will come with directions on were its located and how to pull it out. If not then its usually behind your glove box or on the passanger side under the cowl.

SOURCE: Service light comes on for about 1 minute after starting, then turns off

Sometimes when is flashes or stays on for a short time you may have a vacuum leak. Take a peek and ensure your intake is connected as well as all hoses. the next step which can easily be the first is you need to have the vehicle scanned so you know what code is showing. This is only way to isolate the issue and ensure we are moving in the right direction. Usually auto parts stores will scan for free and then you know whats up.

1996 Volvo, starts great till I turn it off and it won&t restartfor several hours.engine turns over fine, what could be the cause?

Well, you changed everything, Now you have to go after the fuses,relays, ignition switch and wiring. Wiring I would rule out, because it works when cold. So I would check all the fuses, pull them out, most likely good because everything works when cold. Pulling them gets rid of the corrosion problem. Then pull the relays, swap them, where you can. This will narrow down a bad relay. Some thing won't work after it gets warm/hot. besides a no start. After all that, I would go after the ignition switch. they do go bad and do a lot worse than your problem.

My 2004 Honda Pilot ran fine then a hour later won't start. At first thought battery so we charged up usig one of those chargers you plug in. Lights flicker, and clicking sounds but won't turn

Check batry terminals are secure & free from corosion, check security of earth strap to engine & main power wire on starter, if ok have the batry load tested to ensure it can perform under load as the starter needs a lot of current. Have you tried a jump start?

Car was rinning perfect. One day it would not start. there was nothing, no clicking ,bell and guages were working. Jump start was nothing. Installed a new battery there was nothing. Went bact back 2 hours...

It sounds like you have an issue with your PassLock security system. I had the same with my 2002 Impala. Key turns OK, but won't start, won't crank. Wait 20-30 minutes, and car starts normally. There is usually a clue from the Battery and Security lights.
The problem starting to happen once a month, and eventually 1-2 times a week.
There are several write-ups on this problem for several GM cars for 2000-2006(?). Search this website, and search the web.
The official solution is to replace the ignition switch. The best solution is to bypass the Pass Lock system. I went ahead and did a full bypass, which involves cutting wires and adding resistors to the ignition circuit. I have not had a problem since.

Subaru Legacy 1995, will not start. Battery is fine, replaced battery connections; fuel filter, spark plugs and wires about 1 year old. Engine turns over and over, and over, just can't get it to ''fire,''...

was the check engine light on? have it scanned for a code if it was. remove the timing cover just enough to peek and just make sure the timing belt isnt broken. do you smell gas coming out of the exhaust while cranking the engine for 10 seconds? if not it could be gas related. or pull one of the plug wires off a spark plug and hold it a 1/4 inch or a little less away from the engine ground (ANY METAL PART OF THE ENGINE)see if it archs while cranking for 5 seconds, if it does not arch suspect that the camm and or crank sensor is a bad. PLEASE NOTE: this information is based on what you have told me. however if you have it scanned and give me the code pulled i will be better equipped to help you. if u run the tests i gave you and come up with nothing you may have to take it to your local technician for more complex tests to be done.

Faulty ignition coil would be my first guess. Check for spark when it's turning over. If you have spark, then you're lacking fuel. Change fuel filter. Then check fuel pump for operation. Let me know what happens when you get that far.

It may be a fuel pump issue, in most cases it will set a trouble code.
