Changed the pcv box on a 2002 volvo s80 2.9l non-turbo. Was getting codes for too lean. Replaced one injector in the process. After putting it together, it started, smoked, and smelled strongly of gas. ...


a rough guess as to the excessive fuel smell and smoking < I would say that the seal under the injector tip is damaged or missing and that fuel is bypassing the injector
probably now flooded and that is why it will not start
lean codes are generally caused by a faulty HO2S sensor ( heated oxygen sensor) in the exhaust manifold/s before the cat converter/s
other possible causes are MAF/VAF sensor faults and low fuel pressures

I just bought. A volvoS40 but it's smoking. With a. Dark colour how do i. Get it. Fixed


run the fault codes
dark smoke ( black) is an indication of incorrect air/fuel mixture
this can be from leaking injectors, faulty seal , over pressure in fuel system, faulty heated oxygen sensors, blocked air filter, faulty MAF/VAF sensors
the fault codes reading will give a better indication of where to start in the fixing process

Have installed a new oil pump because i had no oil pressure. well problem not solved...still no oil pressure.its a 4.7


How did you determine you don't have oil pressure?
It might be the case that you have a faulty pressure sensor, giving a false indication of low, or no pressure? Also, on rare occasions, new parts have been found to be defective... Very frustrating to do a difficult replacement, only to find the new part you worked so hard to install, is bad too.

I have a 2002 durmax diesel with a Low fuel rail pressure code and with surging at idle. How difficult is the sensor to replace?


Is it the sensor of air in the fuel rail. Have the fault codes read.
Replace the faulty units with genuine one because most aftermarket units are not set for OEM cpu units and are not completely compatible

2002 taurus 3.0L OHV stalls when hot have replaced IAC,camshaft position sensor,fuel pump and there are no codes on engine stall occurs most often when slowing and turning


If you have to wait to restart its usually a faulty coil or ignition module.
Someone would need to troubleshoot the ignition system when the engine fails to start to proceed. Could be a faulty relay too.

1985 Volvo 245 - Car was stored for 8 months. Wouldn't start. Got towed to garage. They diagnosed that it needed a new fuel pump. They installed one and that didn't work so they said the second...


your fuel filter, injectors and fuel regulator should all be checked-these clowns (sorry, mechanics) should have checked line pressure FIRST, and I might have suggested that the fuel tank be removed and cleaned after it failed the first time-n telling what is in the lines, and injectors are easy to clog. Since this is an older car, and more difficult to diagnose, it might be a good idea to look for a Volvo specialist that will diagnose the problem rather than throw parts at it.

I have a 2005 volvo s40 with an error code of P0172. Need to know the problem..


P0172 - System Too Rich (Bank 1)
Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a rich condition (too little oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 1 is the side of the engine that has cylinder #1.

Note: This DTC is very similar to P0175, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.

Symptoms: You will more than likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a misfire.


Causes: A code P0172 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
* There could be a vacuum leak.
* There could be a fuel pressure or delivery problem


Possible solutions include:
* Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
* Cleanthe MAF sensor. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
* Inspect fuel lines for cracks, leaks, or pinches
* Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail
* Check the fuel injectors, they may be dirty. Use fuel injector cleaner or get them professionally cleaned/replaced.
* Check for an exhaust leak before the first oxygen sensor (this is unlikely to cause the problem, but it is possible)


Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

2004 Volvo S40 2.4I engine check light is on, light is cleared and returns a week later, engine drives normal with light on. codes read P0172 system too rich bank one, P0191 fuel rail pressure sensor...


Unless is was the one doing the testing I can not say that it will fix the problem. I would check the fuel pressure, the fact you have a rich code (P0172) means you may have excessive fuel pressure and the sensor is reading that.I assume this is a four or six cylinder and you have only one bank of cylinders. Check the fuel pressure before you do any parts replacing.

Volvo Radiator, Thermostat and Sensors Your cooling system's temperature controls include all coolant temperature sensors, Volvo thermostat, Volvo radiator or expansion tank cap, cooling fan(s) and fan clutch (if equipped). These cooling system parts function primarily independent of the engine but control the engine either through cooling or by sending control signals to your Volvo's electronic systems.
The Volvo thermostat is a spring-loaded valve that opens and closes based on the temperature of the coolant flowing through it. A high temperature reading followed by a drop to normal temperature (or a continuously low temperature) is a common first sign of a sticking Volvo thermostat. However, many other conditions may cause these symptoms, so you need to know how to eliminate each possibility.
The Volvo radiator or expansion tank cap is also a spring-loaded valve reacting to system pressure. It serves to maintain proper system coolant level at predetermined pressures. It must always be replaced with an exact replacement cap with the same pressure setting. Never use other caps except for short-term emergencies!
A belt-driven fan blade for pulling air through the Volvo radiator is usually on the Volvo water pump pulley and should have a fan clutch to control it. The fan clutch allows the fan to turn with the belt at low engine speed and "free-wheel" at higher speeds. A bad fan clutch either doesn't allow the fan to spin at low speed (overheating in traffic) or doesn't allow it to free-wheel at high speed (potential overheating on highway or reduced gas mileage).
An electric fan can be either by itself (usually front-wheel drive) or auxiliary (used with a mechanical fan). Both types are controlled via a temperature sensor - in the Volvo radiator or upper Volvo radiator hose or on the Volvo thermostat or Volvo water pump housing. This sensor is usually an on/off type switch with a fixed temperature setting. (Some vehicles may have 2-3 settings for multi-speed fans.) This sensor is commonly called an "auxilliary fan switch".
Other common temperature sensors are: 1) gauge sender (variable output); 2) warning light sender (on/off type); 3) lambda and/or fuel injection sensor(s) (variable to control fuel injection settings); 4) thermo-time switch (cold start valve control). Your Volvo may have other sensors as well.
Temperature control is critical to both performance and emission control. Unfortunately, this system is the most difficult to troubleshoot without proper equipment and diagrams. It's even more difficult with computers that adjust timing, idle speed, vacuum and fuel delivery automatically to make up for potentially faulty temperature sensor signals.
Maintenance of your cooling system sensors is virtually impossible since there's nothing really to "maintain". Keeping them clean both internally (coolant replacement) and externally (engine cleaning) is the best way to ensure trouble-free driving. Checking and replacing all parts at the factory-recommended time or mileage limits helps as well
