2001 Volvo S60 T5 with 140,000 miles. My engine

2001 Volvo S60 T5 with 140,000 miles. My engine service required light came on immediately after I had the oil pan gasket and some seals replaced due to an oil leak. I believe the shop disconnected the battery cable to eliminate the message and sent me home. The next day the engine started to surge, then the engine service urgent message came on and I lost power. It now drives at a speed of 15 mph. What do you suggest/recommend.

    After reading all the post on this forum and on the Volvo Forum I cleaned the MAF Sensor, but that did not work. Then I took it to the dealer, McDonalds Volvo, Denver. I hoped for the ETM failure and repair under the extended warranty. McDonalds Volvo repaired the ETM under the warranty and no charge.

    Thanks to all for the post in the forums that help us diagnose our problems.

    Turned ouyt to be the ETM. With help from all the forum posts, I was pretty sure and let the dealer handle it. Covered under the extended warranty. Thanks for all the help via the forum.

    I'm trying to post the answer. It was the ETM and was fixed under warranty by McDonalds Volvo.

  • rwoods2003 Feb 09, 2010

SOURCE: how to remove front door

Pop the grab handle cover off, two different styles.

1. With a slot under the grab handle, take a small screw driver off and gently push up, it should just pop out.

2. Simple cover that can be separated with a bone tool or similar so you don't chip the cover piece.

Behind that you will find two Torx 25 screws, Take those out.

Around the edge of the panel should be around 8 plastic rivet type of thing.

Again...two different styles.

1. With center pins that blend in perfectly with the rivet. Should be about 3/32nds diameter. Push the center in and the rivet deals should pop out. Be sure not to lose the center piece...easy to lose.

2. Same deal but with a larger center pin.

Take the plastic triangle piece near the upper right hand area as facing the panel.

Pull bottom away from door and up to release from top section of door.

Careful removing the cable for the door lock release, and remove the connectors from the tweeter and driver's door module.

SOURCE: How do I reset the SRS-Airbag SERVICE URGENT Fault

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Please rate my answer if it is useful to you.

Cheers,

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Volvo s60 t5 with 150k miles that

New original transmission installed costs probably almost the same. Rummaging thru junk yards you could get a little driven transmission for some 500$ and giving another 500$ to the garage it would be worth while.

So, if you can find reasonable used transmission - throw it in. If not - it's probably not worth it and you'll be better off by buying another S60.

Hi:
This fault could be a spark plug wire too, and even a coil pack, or distributor component. Keep up the hunt for the problem!

When should you change cam belt on volvo s60


Well, most belt companies and aftermarket folks recommend 60,000 to 80,000 miles on a timing belt. You have an interference engine which means if the belt breaks while the engine is running it could damage the valves and pistons. So I would recommend doing it soon.

Transmission Service Required 2001 Volvo S60 T5


Hi,

These cars had a few issues with the transmissions. Sometimes upgrading the software and flushing the transmission will help, sometimes a new valve body will fix the problem, but often the transmission will need replacement due to internal failure.

The first step is to have a shop read out all the fault codes, read all the service bulletins and tech notes from Volvo regarding the transmission problems and then make a decision based on all of that information.

Good Luck,

Bret
