    My 2002 S80 T6 has a whinning noise coming from under the area of the power steering fluid holder. Fluid is topped. Noise runs on after the car is off. Prior to the whin from under the hood, I believe I had a hum when turning the sterring wheel, that did not last. My wife suggest that the noise has been gone for several days and relates it to not using the A/C

    I turn the car off and can hear a whining humming noise from the driver's front corner area of the engine compartment. I get 15 feet away from my car and still hear this noise. It persists for several minutes.

It might possibly be the vacum actuator for your break system.

What causes power loss in engine and transmission and a loud thumping somewhere under hood

This could be serious First look & listen to the engine with the hood up to find anything loose like the fan, serpentine belt etc. Also get under the vehicle and look at the universal joints. Unfortunately, from your description, it sounds more like the auto or transfer case. With luck, it may just be the linkage but get it checked before something really serious occurs.

Oil leak

Not sure where your oil pressure sender is on that engine, but usually they are close to the filter. Or perhaps leaning on the top of the engine, like the fill cap, cracked something. Another possibility is a bad gasket on the new oil filter or overfill by 1 quart.

Engine code P0107 97 Volvo 850glt hot to fix, what is it

It's the map sensor ( manifold absolute pressure) I don't have my manual at the moment, so I can't tell you exactly where it is. There should be an emissions sticker under the hood somewhere showing the location of it.

The fuses that are buzzing, are these the ones you replaced? Sounds like a bad connection to the fuse panel, but the ones you removed are they fuses or relays. Did you have to repair any wiring or plugs for the window? Check the connection at the main window panel, if it has a bad connection such as not plugged in completely.

S10 2.2 5 spd 2wd...electrical problem

Sounds like ur computer. When a computer goes out they seem to go in different ways. Also there should be main circuit relays either under the hood or on driver side dash. If you pop a main relay it will kill all main circuits to protect a circuit melt down. Hope this helps. Thanks Josh

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

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.
