Hi Debra, The fuse box for the Volvo are on the passenger side end of the instrument panel behind the cover....the passenger door will have to be open to access it and it is just prised off with a small screwdriver, the fuse removal tool should be inside and the fuse list should be on the reverse of the cover but I think it is No 13 fuse you need to replace!
Most likely it is the breather tube and/or the oil trap box (integrated into the oil filter housing). if the box is plugged or the diaphragm is torn the box will send oil to the top of the engine via the hose.
do you also have a high pitched whistling noise?
Volvo has extended the warranty for the oil trap box (filter housing) to 120k miles and/or 10 years.
I will try and simplify the problem. I have an oil leak, which I traced up the back of the engine to the cylinder head area. When I removed the top plastic cover on top of the coil packs I found oil in every recess next to the coil packs. The crankcase breather pipe was also off. The source of the leak is not evident, but it is definetely above the cylinder head gasket area.
Actually if you look right above your license plate there is a plastic
cover covering a key hole on your trunk. Look right up buy license
plate lights remove the plastic cover and you can manually use a key to
open the trunk.
It's a black cover right next to the switch you press to open the trunk.
I have an S80 trust me it's there nobody knows about it.
inside the wheel arch behind the plastic cover you should be able to access the bottle to remove it. the bad thing is that some of the mounting screws are behind the bumper. i don't know a lot about volvo but i did do some research and everything points to the archway
pull the seatbelt pilar cover off from the door jamb. this runs vertically up the pilar between the front an back door (beside the front seats. Once opened loosen the belt by gently pulling the belt upward toward the roof. You'll have to do this sometimes in small increments. Once the seatbelt is pulled out all the way, spray small amount of lubricant into the joint where at the top of the belt spool. Also use a screw driver to push spool upward while pulling the belt. At first it's only going to release a little but eventually the lubricant will work its way into the seam at the top of the belt spool and loosen up the stuck inertia catch. Until it completely loosens you might have to remove the pilar cover again and work the seatbelt out (also use the screw driver technique described above) in order to use the seatbelt. When parking, I would relatch the seatbelt and pull the slack up around the back of the head rest. After a day or so it worked normally.
Check if it works in the boot, you have a permanently live 12v socket in the boot. If it works on this one then it must be the fuse which controls the two front 12v sockects.
To access the fusebox - Carefully remove the cover underneath the dash board in the passenger footwell. It is held on by two clips, these are released by pushing the centre of the clip in.
Once you have the cover off remove the two front screws holding the fuse box in place, then carefully pull the fuse box down and towards you. The handbook will tell you which of the fuses relates to the 12v sockets. Remove the fuse and replace with a matching one, these can be purchased from most garage for around 10p.
Before replacing the fuse box check the socket works. If it doesn't then you will need to get it checked out by the dealer or an auto electrician.
