In the past we have used starting fluid to find vacuum leaks. Start the engine, let it idle. Spray quick shots of starting fluid at your vacuum lines in isolated areas. When the starting fluid find the vacuum leak the engine will react to it... usually by going up in rpm. Depending on your engine computer, it may stall the engine. Either way you will find your vacuum leak. Get starting fluid or "ether" at Autozone or O'Reilly.

Volvo S80 Error Code 014

That is a cam shaft issue. The reason that they say that it might be oil sludge is because of variable valve timing. That system uses oil pressure to vary the cam activity according to the driving conditions.
If you have done regular oil changes on the car, I doubt that it is a oil related issue. You can take it to some place like grease monkey and have the engine flushed to see if that helps. What they are going to do is similar to putting 50/50 oil and diesel fuel in and run it till it gets warm then drop the mix and put in real oil. This is a tough one to diagnose without a scope to check activity on the cam sensor. It could be a flat spot on the cam.

Emergency fuel door release for 2000 Volvo S80

Copied from Volvo Forums

I had a similar problem w recently bought 2003 S80.Several points: 1) Access your locking selonoid through the trunk interior panel ... loosen a few hex bolts and slide out for maintenance; 2) I fixed my lock by simply using light teflon-based oil (like for bike chains). I exercised it a few times and it works beautifully; 3) Not sure on your model, but gas door on the '03 unlocks when you push the associated release button under the headlight control switch. It is not designed to unlock w the key (again, check owners manual for your year). Hope this helps. master_pre08-04-2007, 09:35 AMYeah, the fuel door on my 2000 S80 is connected with the door locks. In order for it to open you have to unlock all the doors to the car. Sssnake08-14-2007, 03:39 PM Thanks Guys,

I removed the locking mechanism and applied a little silicon graphite and now it works like a charm.

I have volvo s80 it shows me transmission serves urgant

If you are not very mechanical i would recommend you take your car to a garage and ask them to change your transmission oil and filter, the sooner the better.
or get the filter and the grade of oil you need, drain the transmission fluid, either by undoing the transmission sump bolt located under the car engine, located on opposing side to the oil sump, or removing the sump(replace filter). replace and reseal the sump/bolt. refill car from through the transmission dipstick, located near the engine under the bonnet.

What kind of oil do I need to use?

Volvo recommends Castrol 5W-30. Your message is probably the result of bad oil pickup seals though, especially if the oil level is proper on the dipstick.

I cant find the screw at the bottom of the oil pan to realease the oil

It is located near the center of the oil pan, facing towards the rear of the vehicle, and should be a 17 or 19mm head.
