Goodday! I asked a question about my S40 Volvo 2001 high idle. The answer is great, but I did not use it because I found out that it the car was giving another fault.

there are times when the engine woulld crank for a long time without firirng. when it finally does it would be powerless to an extent that it doesn't respond to the gas padel. its like it activates some form of inhibitor. When it behaves like that the only way to eventually start it is to disconnect the battery and wait for a few seconds. Now I wonder if it is still the idle motor

My 2004 volov s40 is having starting problems

It sounds like the fuel pressure regulator diaphragm is broken, causing fuel to flood the engine when first started, then clear up and run fine.This is a common problem. let the vehicle sit for a few hours , then pulling off the vacuum hose to the regulator. Fuel may dribble out of the hose indicating bad regulator.You can also smell the end of the hose for a raw gas smell.

Why would a newly replaced timing belt "shred" within 3 months on a 2000 volvo s40 1.9 liter turbo? There were no problems up to the car just comming to a stop during a drive. The timing belt, tensioner...

They could have been incorrectly fitted not to factory spec so they disintegrated this may be due to you went with cheapest place possible.

Hi,Volvo s40 engine revs up to 3000rpm by itself,and will also drop in revs from tick over,then just cut out.Any suggestions would be appreciated cheers

Sound like the idle air control valve(IAC) is dodge, could try taking off and cleaning with carb cleaner, while doing that take off hose by throttle body and also clean in there inc butterfly, go and give it a good blast down the motorway !!

This is a common problem of Volvo S40. You can try this trick to turn off the flashing arrow light.

1) Turn off Engine
2) Turn key to "On" position (Not start the engine), you will see the panel light will on
3) Step on the break paddle
4) Shift the gear from "P" to "L" 10 times
5) Turn key to " Off" position
6) Now you can start the engine.
7) If doesn't work, you can repeat the procedure.

Hope this tick help
Good luck
