Re: Power steering fluid is overflowing in 2002 S40

I doubt the fluid is "boiling' as I'd imagine the boiling point temperature is quite high. That makes me think it's more likely a pressure issue since you said the level is correct. Then again, maybe those missing pieces of filter are stuck in the pump somewhere and creating the whining noise. Wish ...

Re: Power steering fluid is overflowing in 2002 S40

May be a dumb question, but you are reading the fluid level according to the dipstick, right? I generally check the level when the fluid is hot. To me, it seems like even when "full", the level is pretty low in the reservoir on my '01. FWIW, I've always used ATF (no particular type) to fill or top up.

Re: Starter wiring

Probably not really what you're looking for, but maybe it'll be of some help...
Obviously I can't get to the starter without removing the intake manifold.
If you need more detail, just ask.

Re: Starter wiring

No diagram, but I'll try to get a photo under the hood of my '01 tomorrow if that will help.
It sounds like you're interested in the area under the smaller plastic cover, right?

Re: Stalled driving/ slow crank no start

Mileage?
Pull the top plastic timing cover and make sure the timing belt has not broken.

Re: 2003 S40 turns over slowly but wont fire

I'm not trying to sound like a jerk, but what symptoms are you having that you describe as " feels like a dying battery"? New doesn't always mean good. I'd still test it as volvolugnut suggested. Even better is to use a load tester on it. If you don't have one, maybe a place like Autozone or O'Reily...

Re: Red alarm light not working but alarm is fine

Where is the red alarm light that you're referencing? The one near the right front speaker on my '01 only blinks in the dark. And even then, it seems intermittent. I never paid much attention to it. But honestly, I'm not really that concerned with someone messing with my 20 year old/250,000 mile S40.

Re: Piston soak for rings.

What's your oil consumption?
Does the engine miss at idle? Will it even idle?

Re: Need Help with Part # PNP Switch or Neutral Safety Switch

You also mentioned I should look into ignition switch failures . I don't mind replace that part because I'm guessing if everyone else has issues with it, then I probably do also. The only thing I'm concerned about is once I replace the ignition switch, will I have to go to the dealer for a reprogra...

Re: Need Help with Part # PNP Switch or Neutral Safety Switch

The transmission model tag is located near the PNP plug on my AW-55.
I'd imagine it's near the same location on an AW-50.
See below.

Edit: Also, have you tried "rowing" the shifter back and forth multiple times in an attempt to clean the contacts of the PNP switch?
