Temps vary from 190 to 220 depending on the design. what will change this is the radiator cap. it controls the pressure in the system, higher pressure is also a higher running temp. if you didn't change any components then the temp sounds right. if it gets to about 250 then worry

    ved or isx engine? also your gauge could be out of calibration, or you may have a bad sensor, or your thermostat may be sticking.

    220 is a bit high and if it really is running that hot all of the time your fan is probably running and burning excess fuel.

My AC stop working had it on and it just stop blowing air. Had it on auto air mode. Is a 2010 Volvo vnl670. Cummins No air comes out.


have an accredited ac specialist check out the system as you may have a leak in the condenser unit and it shut down from low pressure in the system. If there is a problem in the automatic module the shop should be able to diagnose that as well.

could be a bad thermostat control or temp sensor.My international car carrier did the same thing.It was called a thermostat control on it.Different manufacturers hav e different names for it.basicly it reads temperatures

Rad fan on always ofter engine shut off. no hot engine message temperture guage at normal range fan stays on @2-3min after engine turned of regardless of running 1 min or 1 hr.


The ECM gets it messages for heat from the engine coolant temperature sensor. The sensor is probably bad. Since the fans come on right away the ECM is in a safe mode for the engine. Meaning it turns the fans on because it can't read the coolant sensor. As far as the fans staying on for a couple of minutes this is normal when the engine is hot. The ECM does this.

I noticed my temperature gauge low for longer periods of time in the cold. I just had my radiator replaced about 4 months ago. The coolant level is good and so far no leaks. 1999 Volvo S70.


That's not a problem as far as its not overheating. and if the radiator is bad or there was a leak then the car will be high not low. and i think your your Thermostat is open all the time that's maybe why the car is always Low on Temperature.

Why does my fan stay on when I turn off the vehicle after driving it in cold weather? Can it run down my battery?


Your fan will continue until your engine has been brought down to the required temperature. This is normal. However, if you just completed a normal/shortish run and your temperature gauge is going hot or into the red, you could have a thermostat problem, it needs checking out especially as winter is here.

Can anybody tell me the correct type and weight of oil a 2004 volvo xc 90 uses also # for replacment oil filter


Oil filter is provided by year,make, model of your vehicle at the parts store. ---
Oil and fluids Oil quality
Engine oil must meet the minimum ILSAC specification GF-2, including ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF and SJ/Energy Conserving.
Your Volvo has been certified to standards using ILSAC oil specification GF-2 5W-30. Volvo recommends use of oil with a quality rating equal to or higher than ILSAC GF-2. Equivalent and better oils include ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF, and SJ/Energy conserving. Lower quality oils may not offer the same fuel economy, engine performance, or engine protection.
Volvo Cars recommends Castrol. Depending on your driving habits, premium or synthetic oils may provide superior fuel economy and engine protection. Consult your Volvo retailer for recommendations on premium or synthetic oils. Oil additives must not be used. NOTE: Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance is carried out. This oil is only used at customer request, at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer. Operation in hot climates.
When temperatures exceed 86° F (30° C) in your area, Volvo recommends, for the protection of your engine, that you use a heavier weight oil, such as SAE 10W-30. See the viscosity chart below. pg129a.jpg Oil viscosity (stable ambient temperatures)
Operation in temperate climates
Incorrect viscosity oil can shorten engine life. Under normal use when temperatures do not exceed 86° F (30° C), SAE 5W-30 will provide good fuel economy and engine protection. See the viscosity chart above. Extreme engine operation
Synthetic oils meeting SAE 10W-30 and complying with oil quality requirements are recommended for driving in areas of sustained temperature extremes (hot or cold), when towing a trailer over long distances, and for prolonged driving in mountainous areas. Changing oil and oil filter
Oil and oil filter changes should be made at 7,500 mile (12,000 km) intervals. Volvo does not recommend the use of oil additives.
Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance intervals except at ower request and at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer.

My cooling fan is not working on vnl670


Check the fuses, then the fan relays, after that the coolant temp sensors.
The fans should come on when the AC is engaged so check to see if that part is still functioning.

Volvo Radiator, Thermostat and Sensors Your cooling system's temperature controls include all coolant temperature sensors, Volvo thermostat, Volvo radiator or expansion tank cap, cooling fan(s) and fan clutch (if equipped). These cooling system parts function primarily independent of the engine but control the engine either through cooling or by sending control signals to your Volvo's electronic systems.
The Volvo thermostat is a spring-loaded valve that opens and closes based on the temperature of the coolant flowing through it. A high temperature reading followed by a drop to normal temperature (or a continuously low temperature) is a common first sign of a sticking Volvo thermostat. However, many other conditions may cause these symptoms, so you need to know how to eliminate each possibility.
The Volvo radiator or expansion tank cap is also a spring-loaded valve reacting to system pressure. It serves to maintain proper system coolant level at predetermined pressures. It must always be replaced with an exact replacement cap with the same pressure setting. Never use other caps except for short-term emergencies!
A belt-driven fan blade for pulling air through the Volvo radiator is usually on the Volvo water pump pulley and should have a fan clutch to control it. The fan clutch allows the fan to turn with the belt at low engine speed and "free-wheel" at higher speeds. A bad fan clutch either doesn't allow the fan to spin at low speed (overheating in traffic) or doesn't allow it to free-wheel at high speed (potential overheating on highway or reduced gas mileage).
An electric fan can be either by itself (usually front-wheel drive) or auxiliary (used with a mechanical fan). Both types are controlled via a temperature sensor - in the Volvo radiator or upper Volvo radiator hose or on the Volvo thermostat or Volvo water pump housing. This sensor is usually an on/off type switch with a fixed temperature setting. (Some vehicles may have 2-3 settings for multi-speed fans.) This sensor is commonly called an "auxilliary fan switch".
Other common temperature sensors are: 1) gauge sender (variable output); 2) warning light sender (on/off type); 3) lambda and/or fuel injection sensor(s) (variable to control fuel injection settings); 4) thermo-time switch (cold start valve control). Your Volvo may have other sensors as well.
Temperature control is critical to both performance and emission control. Unfortunately, this system is the most difficult to troubleshoot without proper equipment and diagrams. It's even more difficult with computers that adjust timing, idle speed, vacuum and fuel delivery automatically to make up for potentially faulty temperature sensor signals.
Maintenance of your cooling system sensors is virtually impossible since there's nothing really to "maintain". Keeping them clean both internally (coolant replacement) and externally (engine cleaning) is the best way to ensure trouble-free driving. Checking and replacing all parts at the factory-recommended time or mileage limits helps as well

The ABS light goes on (sometimes when the engin reaches it's normal temperature) it doesn't go on when is cold... What can be the problem? Sometimes it even goes off after it reaches the final...


there will be an ABS system trouble code stored, don't guess have the dealer or a Volvo background shop check the system for that code, then u will know where to look for the problem that turned the light on..
