Engine not specified
Cooling fan stopped working resulting to car running hot. Replaced cooling fan and also coolant, thermostat, and upper and lower radiator hoses. Car also ran rough, replaced coil in cyl. no. 3.
Vibration and noise in front end, found to be a faulty engine mount(front right). Replaced. Also a vibration in front tire. While up on a lift found a faulty right rear control arm and an exhaust shield falling off, both are unrepaired as of now.
T-Belt had excessive wear after only 2K miles, found while replacing spark plugs. Problem diagnosed as faulty pulley pushing belt into engine.
Oxygen sensor replaced because of CEL. CEL came back on. Unresolved CEL when sold.
CEL on - diagnosed as bad cam sensor and hub. Leaking rear mail seal and cam housing.
Idle speed was fluctuating, almost cutting out. Dealer cleaned throttle.
Engine quit shortly after re-fueling. Shop diagnosed fuel pump-replaced
radiator was leaking. Replaced
Car would not run. Fuel pump relay replaced
A malfunctioning coil, or power pack, for one of the spark plugs was replaced. The spark plugs were also replaced as routine maintenance.
water reservoir leaking; replaced
The Volvo developed engine trouble while I was traveling, a dead miss. After I figured out it was a mechanical problem, perhaps a burnt valve or low compression, I decided to trade it.
Replaced cam adjust solenoid and spark plug coil.
Volvo dealer wanted to perform ETM cleaning ($550)and then replace PVC ($600) before replacing ETM under warranty. I removed the ETM myself and had it rebuilt by firm in Colorado for $600 plus shipping. Replaced it,problem solved. Not happy with Volvo.
Replaced broken (worn out) upper motor mount
Replace motor mounts.
Coolant needed to be added frequently. Smelled antifreeze when heater turned on. Found leaked antifreeze under driver & passenger floor mats. Replaced heater core.
Thermostat and Coolant Temp Sensor failed. Replaced both.
Car runs rough. check engine light came on. gave codes for throttle position sensor
Cracked coolant reservoir causing slow loss of coolant
Radiator tank cracked allowing slow loss of coolant. Shop says this is common problem w/this system after 10 yrs or so. Consider 10 yrs of trouble free cooling better than average service life for radiatiors in high corrosion area (Hawaii)
Dash lights (Check Engine, ABS, ETS, Brake) had all come on. The dealership wanted $1,800 to replace two modules (ABS & ETS). I went to an independent for a 2nd opinion. Paid to have frayed battery cable replaced to see if that would take care of the issue. It didn't as the ABS and Check Engine lights are still on. The car went back to the shop today for additional work.
The ETS module went out. Volvo covered the replacement work as part of a class action suit settlement.
Turbocharger was failing. This car was the most expensive car for repairs I ever owned. Had transmission replaced 5-2004, $4500. Something always wrong with it. I would guess I spent close to $15.000.00 over the 7 years just in repairs not maintenance.
Over $10k of pending repairs when I junked it...catalytic converter, oxygen sensor, etc. Needed new fuel pump.
