SOURCE: Volvo 740 Steering wheel problem (moves left right)

You might want to check the two bolts that fix the steering column to the dashboard. They'll become loose over time and the phenomenon appears as horizontal play while turning steering wheel. The bolts are socketless but you can detach them by rotating them with hands if they are already loose, then replace them with appropiate socketed bolts. You'll need to remove one panel in the drivers' footroom. I had the same issue.

SOURCE: Remove the steering wheel or airbag from a 2004 Volvo XC90?

You need a steering wheel puller. You may be able to rent this from your parts house. Disconnect the battery for no less than 1/2 hour before disconnecting the air bag or the air bag could deploy. Place air bag facing up or it could become a projectile if set off.

SOURCE: car jerks when put into drive

check the engine/trans mounts. A good way to check yourself is to have someone standing in front of the engine with the hood open obviously, while you shift the tranny to drive or reverse, if your friends see's the engine moving vigorously, it's worn out mounts.

SOURCE: volvo xc90 2004 buzzing in steering wheel, clunck noise under car

that sounds like you are low on power steering fluid ... when the level gets low then the pump starts to ingest air and that produces a buzzing sound when you turn the wheel .....i would add or change the fluid and check for leaks and mechanical loosness in the under car linkages ...you can have that checked at your next oil change .

sounds like c/v axles (front drive shafts) they will make a clicking sound normally when turning sharp and accell at the same time at slow speeds / look at the axle boots and look for grease on the inside of the front wheels leaking out the axle boots

2002 xc70 when going from park to drive can feel a **** into gear , no other signs of slippage in other gears or while driving . The car has been faithfully serviced and the transmission fluid changed


I feel you should go to a reputable mechanic. Ask for him to check it out. this could be a serious problem but maybe not. Get it checked before you lose all drive power.

My xc70 Volvo shows a message "bulb failure


"position light" is a rear parking light which has failed or become unseated. Sometimes you can knock on the tail light housing and they will come back on, but they burn out shortly after regardless.

These and the low beam headlamps fail very frequently on these cars so you should become familiar with the replacement procedures.

Check the online manual:

'88 Volvo 740GLE won't get past 30 mph


Horrible squeal. If my 740 made a horrible squeal I would be upset also. These ideas - timing belt has somehow slipped out of time. Easy check. One of the other belts are slowing the engine any of them can squeal: The alternator belt The power steering belt The fan belt. Does the noise occur only when driving? Does the engine sound normal when revving in neutral? Does turning on the lights or a/c affect the noise? Does the power steering work when car is standing? Is the squeal heard when turning the wheels. A logical diagnosis will identify and eliminate these easy to fix problems.

Rattle steering wheel


Sounds like your intermediate steering shaft. Its the slip shaft that runs thru the firewall. They have a slip-stick condition that makes a horrible rattle that you can feel in the wheel. Its a pretty easy repair. Just make sure the steering wheel dosen't spin while you are changing it.

Good Luck
