I ran into this a month ago. Check your battery. Volvo's and other euro cars are very picky about cranking voltage. have a friend put a volt meter across the battery while you are cranking. If it drops much below 11 volts, its probally not going to start. Have a shop load test the battery. Hopefully, this is the cheap fix to your problem. (my other customer had spent over $300 at the dealer)

2001 Volvo s40 seems to stall and not start for ten to 15 min. Also has high temperature reading that is false as car is not really hot.


You need to look at the temp sending unit it's probably faulty anthor issue with volvo is dirty throttle body's this raises havoc on the car they idle up down all over the map also you should change the thermostat too as a precautionary measure make sure it's the right temp for your year of your car thanx Chris

Trying to figure out what is wrong with my my 2000 volvo s40 its wont start when i turn the key it just clicks is it the battery or could it be the starter


A weak battery will make the "clicking" sound you hear, also bad connections, loose battery cables or worn battery cables. Jump start the car to see if it cranks, if it does, charge or replace battery.

The size motor in the 2000 volvo s40


the only thing i can tell you is get a socket with a good broken bar and see if you can turn the crank give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

Volvo s40 is hard to start but when started runs perfect


it could be the problem with starter motor, give it to technician tell him to check starter, if problem it there then he will replace carbon brush and may one bearing ,and if require he will replace armature.
before showing to tech. please check both battery cable are connected properly and it is clean no corrosion , it can also cause starting problem.
