Volvo S40 and V40

Volvo V40Half Volvo, half Mitsubishi, the Volvo S40 and V40 compact car debuted in 1995, and was completely redesigned and relaunched in 2004.

The first generation came with variety of 4-cylinder engines, including 1.6, 1.8, 1.9 and 2.0 gasoline engines, the largest being offered with two turbo choices: 2.0T and T4 (high pressure turbo). In addition to the dizzying array of thrust options, Europe got a 1.9 liter diesel. The United States market got exactly one engine: the 1.9 with the low-pressure turbo.

    I have heard that mitsubishi and volvo came together on this one, but no where can I find any Japanese parts other than the trans, which BTW is the only issue on the car for me anyway. It slips too much IMO. But that is the case with most automatic transmissions anyway so no big deal there. I have seen the mitsubishi version and it does share the body but it is made in netherlands as well so half japanese is not accurate. 90% european contents makes this a stalwart car, But the only down turn is the trans as is the case with most Japanese transmissions used on several European makes.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I own a volvo S40 and it’s difficult to get good service in Uganda because we don’t have a very good volvo specialist & technician. I would like to stock genuine volvo parts starting with service parts. How much money do I need to start this business?

    I need to know what kind of coolant does a 2002 s40 take. I also want to tell everyone about the absolutely great customer service i recieved from xemodex for my wife’s v70. It went stressless and easy except trying to get to the starter bracket to slip the wire loom from behind it. I think Volvo does this on purpose to piss DIY people off. Anyway I am really impressed. 1 called provided VIN and card #. 2 got the part in the mail the next am. 3 pulled out old part. 4 installed new part. The biggest problem other than taking off the bracket was it was raining all damn morning.

    I have a 2004 Volvo S40. Recently I was drinving it and somehow
    When I got home the engen stopped running. I then tried to start it but
    It seem to only crank but doesn’t hold any idle, its like it cuts the firing and the the petrol pump isn’t pumping any petrol. I tried
    Removing the battery and putting it back but it still does the same. My
    Mobiliser didn’t wanna work at first when it stopped running so I suppose it has to do with the car mobiliser system. Is there
    A button I need to press or something I have to configure within in my car. Please help me!!

    My car is running great but I would like a little more power out of it is there any suggestions? I already have a k&n filter installed and I removed all the foam madness from air box. But I think I need to clean the EGR and throttle body out because now I am getting worse mileage than before. I do not push the car much to take off and it does not need to. I am more concerned with longevity and reliability. Also my brother bought a Volvo because I told him I love both my Volvos. He’s had nothing but trouble. First the problematic Throttle body issue. Now the transmission is out. I feel really bad now about suggesting Volvo to him. Eh Volvo? Are you listening?

Other than a little hesitattion of the throttle when cold nothing seems wrong, what is this and if I buy a code reader what is the right type? You help would be greatly appreciated. I found the 16 pin connection Ok.

    Had a 04′ Volvo V40 till it got totaled Feb22 this year. That Volvo for Life shit needs to be renamed Volvo-ProLife, No joke Hit a 01′ Caddy at 40 mph and no one got killed or even hurt. Infact to my HORROR the quote “totalled” car restarted and climbed uphill on command!!!! The handling was fucked I admit. Despite depolying passenger airbag, radiator being smashed into where the hood should have been. Yah and the interior being shoved half a foot back. I was able to move the stricken stationwagon out of traffic’s way. The look on those cops faces when I told them “Yah that’s the debris way over there, YES my car did restart and I drove it as is.. It’s a Volvo, Swedish Steel superiority right there.” Not sure why you guys want to send it to a salvage place, it will only break their salvage equipment!!!! Everyone kinda LOL’d. Learned “AFTER” the accident that the brakes were recalled. You will know if your brakes are recalled if it takes forever to stop. (1986 Chevy C20 3/4 ton pickup stops better) RIP 784 YNQ..

    Now in a S40 T5 2007, don’t miss that wagon much anymore.

    Good luck on modding a V40 heard that was basically impossible besides a CAI. Lol!!!
