Why won't my 2002 Volvo s80 shift out of park?


All vehicles have a safety feature that won't allow a vehicle to be shifted into gear without the drivers foot being on the brake pedal . Shifter interlock system . There is a electrically controlled solenoid that locks the shifter ,when you step on the brake pedal an electrical signal un locks the shifter ,allowing the gear selector to move.

Un even braking


Warped rotors are usually the problem, but you cannot see? They can be measured for trueness...however with the pulling in different directions, I think your next fix would be to bleed all 4 brake lines...starting at rear farthest from the master cylinder, then other rear, then front farthest from master cylinder...lastly the front closet to the master cylinder...Pressure can feel constant, but pulling is usually caused by air in the lines...this can get worse...may not be an expensive repair if you can bleed the lines with a friend or pedal pusher system...Also check brake fluid level...was it extremely low, and you recently added some?

I have a 2000 volvo s80 when im idling or stepping on the brake the engine shakes... took it to a mechanic who said it was the rotors so i had them and the brakes repalced but the car is still having the...


Do you have a service light on or check engine.If the car shakes when it is not moving it is not the brakes.I would guess an engine misfire or poor engine preformance if it does it while idling.An 11 year old Volvo is probaly ready for some new plug wires and spark plugs if it has not already been done.Good Luck!

Ive got a bmw318 and sometimes the steering wheel shakes bad when im driving and then stops what can it be


If it shakes when driving at certains speeds, then it is likely that you have a wheel that is bent or you lost a wheel weight. If the shaking happens more when you step on the brakes, then you could have a warped brake rotor. You can ususally tell if its the brake rotor given that hte car will sort of pulse when you push hard on the brakes.

Front wheels and steering wheel shake while driving


If you get a bad vibration in your steering wheel at low speeds without braking it is either a bad tire or a bad rim. If you get a vibration at speeds around 45-50+ and goes away you probably have a balance issue. If the vibration only occurs while braking then your rotors are warped. If low speeds it shakes i'd take it to a shop to check your tires.

How to adjust power brake booster for 2002 volvo s 80


There is no adjustment to the rod between the brake rod and the booster on a S80. If you are having brake light problems the first place to look is in the trunk for a bad fuse in the rear electrical module behind the cover on the left side.

Popping noise on s80 volvo 2.9 1999


Sounds like a ball joint or bad strut. Depends on how the noise occurs and from where it comes from. Does it appear to come from one wheel or another? Could also be power steering linkage.
