Question From LATONIA on VOLVO STATION WAGON

TIMING BELT BROKE WHILE DRIVING 740 VOLVO STATION WAGON DO I JUST CHANGE THE BELT

Response From piercearcher Top Rated Answer

I think you over did your car dude. Are always pushing it to the limit, I mean always red line? If so, then your timing belt will surely break because of high pressure that you give. It will have shorter life span. Correct me if I'm wrong, Volvo S70 is the volvo wagon ryt? If so, then you must obtain avolvo S70 part to repair your car.

Response From Indytech

If your timing belt broke ,then you have a problem
as this is a interference engine, meaning piston to valve contact
can become a very expensive repair.

Question From eschmel on Rack and Pinion Leak Volvo S40

Mechanic says my '02 Volvo S40 has a leaking rack and pinion with a busted bellow that needs to be replaced. I saw the leaks, but I don't know if its oil or ps fluid. It drives fine. Replace for like $600?

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

If it's coming out of the Rack, it can't be anything but power steering fluid.

Volvo bus breather tube?

Showing 3 out of 5 Posts | Show 2 Hidden Posts
Question From luchrt on Volvo bus breather tube?

Okay, well, first of all, I'm a young lady, and I know nothing about mechanics. But I use public transport (buses). I caught the bus last week and I could smell something inside that I can only describe as smelling like oil/diesel fumes. Possibly coming through the aircon vents?

I called the bus company to report it. When I called to follow up, the man said the mechanic found that and I quote "the small plastic breather tube (overflow tube) near the fuel tank at the top of the bus came off."


I didn't know there was a fuel tank at the top of the bus.

I've tried to figure out what this is on google. Is he talking about the one on the crankcase and if not, what is he talking about? Is he talking about the fuel tank vent tube?

In any case, why was the smell coming inside of the bus? And what was it that I was breathing?

This link is a photo of the type of bus it is since I know nothing about its info. All I know is that it's possibly a Volvo.


(Please explain to me in simple English, since I know nothing about mechanics).

Thank you.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I don't know why you are asking about this. Not sure what make it is even though it says so. You reported it, they found it, fixed it so other than it being annoying to you personally you should be done with it - it's theirs to tend to.........

Response From luchrt

No, I'm the one who had to breathe in dangerous fumes. Why should I be done with it?

It's not just "annoying".

Response From nickwarner


No, I'm the one who had to breathe in dangerous fumes.
No you didn't. You simply didn't like the smell and are overreacting. I also doubt you could smell diesel fuel if you wanted to. Diesel powered engines were phased out by the EPA clean air act years ago. They run on compressed natural gas which is not only cheaper as a fuel but doesn't have the emissions of diesel engines. School buses can run diesel, but not urban transit. If these fumes were so dangerous I can assure you I would've died years ago. I spent a decade as a diesel and heavy equipment tech breathing huge quantities of things that are way worse than the little puff of crankcase air you didn't like the smell of. You also sound like one just itching for one of us to say to you that you breathed in some crap just so you can run off to a lawyer and sue. If there was a real issue on that bus the driver would've reported it on his log and the vehicle would be deadlined for service. I know how their system works in a metro fleet and they do inspect and repair things very quickly. If you don't like the bus, buy a car and be free from all those "dangerous fumes" that you feel the bus company wishes to assail you with. The amount of vapors it would take to reach a threatening level in an airspace the size of the interior of a city bus would be more than an engine is capable of producing through its crankcase vent even if you ran a hose directly off the engine and put it under your seat.

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

Unless you are planning on fixing their bus for them, you need to address these questions to the bus company. We have no info here.

2001 VOLVO S80 2.9

Question From carlosm347 on 2001 VOLVO S80 2.9

HOW TO CHANGE SHIFT SOLENOID HOW TO LOWER THE TRANSMISSION ON 2001 VOLVO S80 2.9 NON TURBO

Response From Discretesignals

Are you asking how to change the shift solenoid?

There are a lot of steps and warnings, so you really need to get hold of the service information procedures for lowering the transaxle to get access to the side cover. Your best bet is to try Alldata DIY.

Interesting, but it appears that Volvo is using a general motors 4T65E transmission?

Response From carlosm347

I TRY TO GO TO ALLDATADIY LIKE U TELL ME BUT THEY DONT HAVE THE VOLVO ON THE LIST, CAN U TELL ME ANOTHER PLACE SO I CAN GET THE INFORMATION FOR THAT CAR, I AM DOING IT MY SELF, I DONT WANT TO MAKE ANY MISTAKES. THANK U FOR YOUR HELP.

Response From Discretesignals

I'm surprised that Alldata DIY doesn't have Volvo in their list. You could try Mitchell1diy, but I am not sure how much service information they have for the transmission in your car. You should contact them and ask.

It really wouldn't hurt to have a transmission specialist diagnose the problem. Then if you decide you want to take on the fix, you could. It might require a high end scan tool to do some diagnostic tests and experience in troubleshooting that transmission. Worst case scenario is it may need a complete tear down and inspection to see what is going on. Are you ready for that?

Response From carlosm347

OF COURSE I AM READY I JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW TO LOWER DOWN STEP BY STEP TO DO EVERYTHING THE RIGHT WAY

Response From Discretesignals

I'm fairly certain that Mitchelldiy has the service information procedure and steps for lowering the transmission to remove the side cover.

Response From Hammer Time

I checked both sites and Alldatadiy is not listing any Volvos but Mitchelldiy does show this vehicle

Response From nickwarner Top Rated Answer

You also can buy factory service manuals from helm.com, but I will warn you that factory books are expensive. They may not even make a printed one for this, as Volvo has transitioned into an online service at their dealers. The employees at the dealers each have a login and the info comes directly from a secure site at Volvo headquarters. Even the semitrucks were like that ten years ago when I was working at a Mack and Volvo dealership.

Response From kensoncustom

first check connector as it is under battery and septible to corrosion check harness for varmit demage.
those little guys love wires. next drop lower pan check
for meterial in pan,and loose oil feed tubes.
side cover can be removed .remove axel shaft loosen sub frame lower trans to remove cover. its tight but can be done. i would sugest purchacing a solinoid kit.be sure to check internal harness for cracked wires

Response From carlosm347

THANK U GUYS I STARTING TO WORK ON IT TOMORROW,THERE ANY WAY I CAN REMOVE THE COVER WITH OUT LOWERING THE TRANS,MY CAR DRIVES BUT DONT SHIFT STAY IN 1ST IT REVERSE,I WENT TO ADVANCE AUTO PARTS AND PUT IT TO SCAN I GOT P0751 P0756 SHIFT SOLENOID A AND B. THANKS EVERYBODY FOR THE INFORMATION ALSO THEY ARE NO BOOKS FOR THAT CAR LOOK EVERYWHERE NOT EVEN THE VOLVO DEALER. THANKS

Response From Discretesignals

You really need to have that diagnosed before ripping into the transmission. Just because it has shift solenoid in the trouble code description doesn't mean the shift solenoid is the culprit. You could have:


- The hydraulic valve for solenoid S1 has stuck in the open or closed position
- Defective control system (the solenoid binds or is stuck)
- Internal leakage in the transmission
- Warn or damaged clutch driven plates in the transmission.


Default is 3rd and reverse, so it probably isn't stuck in first. You really need to have a transmission specialist check it out before you break it down. There is service information for this because I am looking right at it. You won't find this stuff in a Chilton's manual.
