Looking at the Wikipedia entry for the Volvo D5 engine, it looks like the best torque band starts around 2,000 RPM. So, what could be happening is that you're upshifting (e.g., going from 3rd to 4th gear) too early and the engine doesn't quite have enough torque to make the transition smoothly – if you remember learning to drive a manual, you may recall some ...

There are two things I can think of. First, the car might have lost the remote. Meaning that it no longer recognizes that the remote and must relearn it (through programming or whatever). Second, it could just be that the remote is broken and no longer works. Do you have other remotes which work? Is there an indicator light on the remote showing it is ...

My first thing to look at is did you get the timing EXACTLY right? A small error can have a huge effect - one half a tooth can be the cause of excessive smoke - were the drive gears identical between the old and replacement : diameter, number of teeth?

Just looked up the workshop manual and it is 24NM Nothing more I can really add to be honest, although most of the time if I cant find the workshop manual I just look up a metric bolt torque chart and go from those figures

I was mistaken when I said the module was in great shape. Although the battery had a good charge and the circuit board was intact, I later noticed that the connection between the two had a significant amount of corrosion. On cutting the battery wires, I found the metal strands of the ground (which was suffering from the corrosion) appeared black as if they ...

Smoke is a white slight blue colour. At the gass station the attending and I both triple checked it. I was way over the full mark. I had driven the car and it was at temperature when switched off. This morning I pulled it out of the garage and then checked it three times and it was at the bottom stripe of the dipstick.

Your tech was correct - pairing a new key to an S40 involves turning the ignition. If it won't turn you can't pair the key to the car. You can't reprogram the key itself (to imitate the old one) as it's they car that programs to the key not the other way around. From what you describe about the sequence of events and how it not won't turn I think there's a ...

The suffocating is indicative of lack of fuel, air or combustion. Have you checked the spark plugs? If they look "blackened", they are worn out. If they are wet with fuel, the spark plug wires or ignition coils might be faulty, thus not sparking the plug. Also check if the air filter is full of dust, that will restrict air flow. I have had a similar issue ...

Does the alarm trigger only when the vehicle is locked or also when driving? It doesn't seem clear from your question. You need a good diagnostic scanner, a generic OBDII will not be good enough. You need a scan tool that will communicate with the body and alarm system and give you live data. As you say the alarm is still triggered in reduced mode it ...

It looks like it is just the cover, found here for around $110 USD. It appears just to snap on, so I'd ensure that all of the securing clips on the mirror are intact before trying to attach it.
