Evaporator Core Cover

I have water leaking from my 2004.5 S40 evaporator core cover. The ac drain to the ground is not blocked but I think there may be a partial blockage inside the HVAC unit that isn't letting the evaporator core drain properly. My question is whether the evaporator core cover is supposed be water tight...

Re: Maintainence 2008 S40

I have this same question. How much fluid do you put in? I don't see a max mark.

Re: 2009 S40 Power Steering Fluid Resevoir

This question is 4 years old, but never got answered. For the next person looking ... You need to remove the passenger side headlight first (it takes 30 seconds once you know what to do. Lift the metal stick in the engine compartment that locks the headlight in). Then you can access the power steeri...

S40 Occasionally won't start, crank, but other times fine

Hi, I had an unusual problem yesterday. I drove my S40 for about 15 minutes without a problem. I stopped at a store. When I tried to leave, the car wouldn't crank. It had power as the lights and radio worked. The car wouldn't shift out of park either. Turning the car off and turning the key to the I...

Re: 2001 V40 Automatic Transmission Fluid Drain...

I just did a drain/flush of my transmission fluid for my 2001 S40. The directions were great. I couldn't get the fluid to drip out slowly of the hole. Luckily, I used the plastic paint funnel recommended here and the fluid all drained into the bucket. Thank you!

Re: 2003 V40 Idle Air Control Valve Cleaning, Gasket Replacement

Thank you very much for this very clear write-up. My 2001 S40 was having a difficult time starting due to poor idling. I would have to rev the engine to keep it from stalling. This simple cleaning worked. I'm still mystified by why the problem was happening at all. The old gasket was very dirty but ...

Re: 2003 S40 1.9t Concerned about the PCV Oil Trap

No, I didn't. I told it to them over the phone. Their response was that they would have to do their own testing, but the guy didn't want to tell me what that would involve. He said that if the car isn't making a high whistling noise, the PCV is fine. Also, I had just had an oil change there last wee...

Livens,

Did you ever solve the PCV trap issue? I have a 2001 S40 1.9T with positive pressure (using the glove test) and yet the dealer is telling me that everything is fine.

Re: 2001 S40 Checking Automatic Transmission Fluid

With the engine off, I just checked the atf by putting my arm in between the fans and the hoses. It didn't seem possible to go behind the hose but I will try that next. Thanks.

Re: 2001 v40 p0133 mystery

I replaced both oxygen sensors whem i got the p0133 code and it went away.

I've read that different code readers confuse the front and rear oxygen sensor codes.

I have 180K on my S40 and think it needs a ATF change. Reading the forums here, I have a question: Is it possible to check thr ATF on a 2001 s40 while the engine is running without having it be on a lift? The dipstick is under the radiator hose and it appears to be inaccessible from above when the c...

Re: 2001 s40 misfire cylinder 3 I'm missing the rea

I had the same misfire codes for cylinder 3 and rough idling, occasionally. I replaced the coil and wires a month ago and the problem seems fixed.

Good luck!
