Question about 2000 Volvo S40

1 Answer

Violent Vibrations I haven't been able to afford to maintain my Volvo because I've been having to deal with non-checklist related items. For example I recently had to have the fuel pump regulator replaced for about $500 parts and service. Now my car is shaking violently at speeds over 60 and I'd like to know what the problem is most likely to be so that I won't have to go into the repair shop clueless. Could it need to have the wheels balanced? Could it need an alignment? Or, could it be the shocks and struts (probably), but I don't want to give up $350 for JUST parts right now. I have about 125K miles on my car.

Translation for B 125 maintenance code


This fooled me for a little while, as I'm not familiar with the car. Actually what you are seeing is a maintainence message that tells you first, that you need to perform a maintainence type A or B.
Then it tells you what maintainence sub items you also need to perform.

So, what you are being told is perform maintainence B and perform sub items 1, 2 and 5

MAINTAINENCE A CHECKLIST:
Replace engine oil

MAINTAINENCE B CHECKLIST:
Replace engine oil and filter
Inspect front & rear brakes
Inspect parking brake & adjustment
Inspect Tie rod ends, steering box & boots
Inspect suspension components
Inspect Driveshaft boots
Inspect brake hoses and lines including ABS
Inspect All fluid levels and conditions of fluid
Inspect Exhaust system
Inspect Fuel lines & connections

SUB ITEMS CHECK LIST
1:
Rotate Tyres

2:
Replace air cleaner element (Every 15,000 miles in dusty conditions)
Replace dust & pollen filter (Urban areas with high concentrations of soot, replace every 15,00 miles)
Inspect Drive belt

3:
Replace Transmission Fluid

4:
Replace Spark plugs
Replace Timing Belt
Inspect Water Pump (V6 Engines only) - If regular extreme conditions over 110 degrees f or under -20 degrees F, replace every 60,000 miles
Inspect Valve Clearance

5:

Violent vibrations when driving 60-65mph on the highway. What is this caused by? I have replaced the Wheel speed sencors, rotors, aleignment, tires rebalanced and brakes. Still not helping. The vibrations...


I would bring it to a garage and have them check the tie rods, ball joints (upper and lower) and cv joints and axels. A bent rim can also cause this. Just because it was balanced dosnt mean the rim is not bent some where. You can still actually balance a badly bent rim. One other option is possible broken belt in one of the tires.
