20 Most Recent 2000 Volvo S70 Questions & Answers

First of all; sorry that you were in a wreck. I know that sucks. Been there, done that. As far as getting the hood to come open; have you checked the hood latches that keep the hood nearly firmly in place? Sometimes loosening these latches can help get a hood to pop open. As far as the front bumper goes; there are also brackets that hold the bumpers to your vehicle. If you can find a way to locate and loosen these brackets; then it should come off. As far as the radiator replacement goes; that's another ball game and beyond my limited knowledge about vehicles. Hope this helps.

Site Instructions:

  1. Please note the list of automobile manufacturers at the left edge of the screen. The currently selected ODB code is for the Volvo family of autos. The codes for any particular vehicle make and model will be found under the manufacturer family, i.e. Dodge and Plymouth are part of the Chrysler family of cars and trucks.
  2. Also notice that just to the right of the manufacturer family list is a short group of OBD II codes. The highlighted Volvo OBDII code P1358 in this list is the currently selected code, and the information on this page pertains to fault code P1358. The other codes in the list above and below this code are OBD2 codes some of which may be related to the current trouble code and can be navigated to directly.
  3. Need to look up additional OBD II Trouble Codes, use the search box. Enter the 5 character fault codes in the search box and submit the search. You can repeat the search as many times as you need, one diagnostics code per search.
  4. Don't assume a particular OBD2 code means the same for other auto manufacturers as there are many manufacturer specific codes in use.
  5. If your fault codes are for a different auto family, select that vehicle series before searching for the diagnostics codes because not all OBD2 codes used by one manufacture are used by the other manufactures. The search only looks at OBD codes valid for the currently selected manufacturer family.
  6. If your automotive family is grayed out, the current OBD code, P1358, is not among those used by the current manufacturer. You can click un-gray at the bottom of the auto family list and then select the manufacturer for your vehicle before searching for your trouble codes.

Change the thermostat and make sure the rad fan is working and all the air is out of the cooling system. Reply.

Rodney, first thing I can think of, the coolant system has an air lock in it. when changing a radiator now a days, the coolant system has to be bled properly for a successful install. Other than bleeding for air, you may have a faulty plugged core radiator. You did plug your fans back in right. links below on how to bleed air from cooling system.

This is going to be your water pump. I would replace the thermostat as well at this time..

2000 Volvo S70 | Answered on Feb 21, 2016

Did the vehicle overheat? Steam is indicative of overpressure. This could be caused from a stuck thermostat or a blown head gasket. Do this with vehicle all the way cool take the radiator cap off. Start it and if any blows out of the radiator the head gasket is blown . If nothing comes out and it's full stick your finger in the fluid. If it gets where it's too hot to touch in a couple of minutes , that also indicates a blown head gasket as exhaust gasses escape into the coolant.

Hi Merre:
Sure, blame the kid.
Easiest fix would be to cut out the section where the hole is and install a piece of flexible tubing. CAUTION! Gas is extremely flammable. Use appropriate tools (NOT a Zip Cutter).
Best fix would be to replace fuel line.
I'd suggest that youcheck with a parts supply to see if appropriate gas lines are available. You may need to use a flaring tool if you have to "custom build" the line.
It's OK kid, the cars is 15 years old and the line was probably rusted.

First code is for an immobilizer problem. Clean the contacts for the antenna ring around the ignition switch first. Second codes is for the Cam position sensor. Could be caused by the sensor or a sticky VVT valve.

You may have debris clogging the drain tube.
Look for debris in any depression running below the windshield.
The drain is normally found there.
