Speedometer work on and off on a 1997 850 Volvo

Now the speedometer work on and off (on intervals) and I have no Idea where is the sensor on the engine or the transmission to check that conection. I think some connection is loose. Any help please

What would make the speedometer stop working and not the mileage meter on a 98 v70 volvo wagon


since they both work off the speedometer cable/electrical and the odometer still works this sounds like the speedometer head is bad and needs either repair or replacement.

Volvo 960 estate blowing oil from the oil filler cap Whats causing it?


Your PCV / Oil trap is likely clogged. I have had some luck running Mobile 1 Synthetic oil and half a can of seafoam in the engine oil to clean things up but it is likely that you will have to replace the pcv system.

When the engine is running on my volvo s40 if i take oil filler cap off oil splurts out with pressure.


A bit of splash is normal from the slight backpressure created when the pistons go down in any engine, but might also be due to clogged PCV valve. Put the cap back on and pull the dipstick and see if you hear constant hsssssss from there, or if the oil splashing abates from the Fill hole.

As a rule, you are not supposed to open that with the engine running ;-) Very messy on a nice Volvo

My money is on the PCV valve (Positive Crankcase Ventilator ($3.00-20.00)
