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

Testimonial: "thanks for the help . I have checked the oil levels . The noise comes when accelarating and sounds mlike a friction noise "

    As you accelerate does the car respond quickly or does the engine seem to race and the car takes time to catch up. Is this an automatic or manual transmission?

The oil filter housing also houses the pcv system. What causes the noise is that there is a check valve in the pcv system that is supposed to regulate the pressure in the crankcase. The valve gets stuck and causes vacuum to build in the crankcase, which in turn sucks air wherever it can causing the noise, which is also why when you pull the dipstick it stops. This can also cause a check engine light with codes for fuel trim. The oil filter housing will need to be replaced. Good news is that Volvo extended the warranty on these to 100K miles so it should be free of charge at the dealer. One thing to watch for is oil leaks after the replacement from the camshaft seals. If air can get past a seal, usually oil can too. If the seals leak too long it can contaminate the timing belt and cause it to break, which causes a lot of damage.

Oil light on @ idle


its a high mileage engine.
all you need to do is use a thicker oil and the light will go out at idle speeds.

use a 50w sae valvoline racing oil.
plus stp oil treatment.

2004 Volvo S40 Noise and check engine light. Any ideas?


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 :)

with the car parked, rub your hand over the treads of your tire...unusually bumpy? compare to the fronts... if a tire is out of balance, esp. in the rear, it can make alot of noise...
solution is to replace tire and rebalance
