Question about 2003 Volvo S60

1 Answer

Buzz I have a 2003 Volvo S60 and have had it since it was new. It has 94,000 miles now and I have recently notice a reoccuring buzzing noise under the hood after I turn off the engine. It sounds like it is coming from the drivers side, however, I have not discovered what it is or what to do about it. Any recommendations or suggestions?

This sounds normal. The engine cooling fan it set to contine to run after being shutoff. If you open the hood at some point and look at the layout, you will see the electric radiator fan in the front of the engine compartment, along with a note that says: caution fan may run w/o vehicle on.

When should you change cam belt on volvo s60


Well, most belt companies and aftermarket folks recommend 60,000 to 80,000 miles on a timing belt. You have an interference engine which means if the belt breaks while the engine is running it could damage the valves and pistons. So I would recommend doing it soon.

it sounds like you c.v axles are grinding this is normal where and tear on a car that is front wheel drive the best way to check and be sure is turn your wheels on way and drive in a circle if you hear a clicking noise then that's your problem i would take it to your local shop to have them replaced if you do not here a clicking noise get back to me and we will go from there

Hello, I have a Volvo S60 2,4d. Basix 130ps,


how are the plug wires, boosted engine's suffer from voltage leaks in even fairly new plug wires, the added cylinder pressure makes the spark plug require allot more voltage before it can fire compared to normally aspirated engine.

Why is my car buzzing or humming after i turn the ignition off?


If it's buzzing when the car is moving. it could be the wheel bearing making the buzzing sound. it needs to be replaced. you can probably hear it as being inside the hood.

Do you have headlight wipers? If so, wiggle the wiper arm and see if the buzzing stops.

Volvo S60 Hesitation


Had a similar problem recently where I would press the accelerator almost to the floor before I got a response and when I ran the A/C it was worse. Also my car kept stalling out when at idle. Volvo dealerships are extremely expensive. I took mine to a Bosch service center (more of a mom & pop shop) and the price was more reasonable. The drivability (sp?) problem was the rear oxygen sensor for me. I also had a fuel pressure sensor and MAP (labeled as pressure sensor from Volvo) sensor replaced. The parts are expensive, but it fixed my issue. There is a front and rear oxygen sensor so it could be either. The parts are $219 each. The fuel pressure and MAP sensor are cheaper, but only by about $40. They are not hard to replace though. Once I had the rear oxygen sensor replaced the car was back to normal. I have a 2003 S60 with 97K miles.
