Welcome to the Web’s only Volvo Repair Database. The VRD contains over 1500 fixes, repairs and DIYs for Volvo cars. There are three ways to browse its contents:
Viewing Volvo repairs by category breaks down the repairs into groups like Engine, Transmission, Interior, etc. It cuts across all models, so after choosing a category, you’ll have to look for repairs relating to your car.
If you’ve documented a repair and want to see it here, please contact me.

See our in-depth discussion on making your Volvo faster — it’s a comprehensive collection of information and expert opinion about the best way to get more power from your Volvo’s engine.
But Wait! There’s More!
The MVS Volvo Forums have 60,000+ topics. I grow the VRD continually by gathering the best topics in the MVS Volvo Forums, and then posting them here in the VRD.
The Beginner’s Page – new to Volvo? Start here.
Volvo Terms Glossary — Find out what we’re saying. Volvo abbreviations explained.
Trouble Codes — the codes you get from from the On Board Diagnostic System are listed and (some) are associated with relevant Volvo Forum topics. Trouble Codes for 1996-1998 model year Volvos. Trouble Codes for 1999 and up Volvos. Same thing as above, but for newer Volvos.
Wiring diagrams for probably every model/year Volvo since 1994.
Volvo Transmissions page shows Volvo car model, engine code, transmission type and transmission code.
Take a look, and enjoy. If you have any questions, please join/log in/post the question in the Volvo Forum.
Here’s how to give back to MVS.
