Hello, I have a 1999 Volvo s70 2.4 engine my check engine light is on and I have a yellow arrow flashing. After check engine scan im getting back codes P1618 and also P0717 what does this mean?


This is a gearbox issue. Both codes relate to the transmission. Specifically P0717 is to do with an engine speed sensor that lets the gearbox know when it is supposed to change gear. Have you had any work done recently. They might have disturbed some wiring causing this problem. Replacing this sensor is not a simple task as i believe it is inside the box so requires the gearbox to be removed. There are some good Volvo forums on the internet that will be able to help you and point you to a local independent Volvo garage rather than a main dealer to keep costs down.

1999 S70 Volvo. changed the fuel pump, filter & fuel relay. but it is still doing the same thing. starts but will stall of after about 10-18 seconds


the fuel filter is it a inline type filter if so check the arrow on the filter make sure the fuel is flowing in the right direction because some of these filters have a non return valve in them.a garage made this mistake with my brothers car, hope this helps its worth checking. it sounds like a restriction of fuel

2007 volvo xc90 - A loud clanking noise from the engine belt area during cold starts only - goes away in 2 or 3 minutes


Get it towed to a shop. Sounds like an idler or tensioner going bad. If it failed you will bend valves and damage the engine badly.

hi black smoke is not good, and you say the water level is going down. im sorry to inform you may have a blown head gasket. rough running engine lite, if you have just bought the vehicle i would recommend taking it back to were you bought the vehicle.

1999 Volvo S70 emitting black smoke from exhaust


Sounds like computer to me , black smoke might just be due to fuel /air mixture.
Avoid dealerships , find a reputable mechanic.
Almost any shop can plug your car into a diagnostic computer .
If you live close to me , I would be happy to take an s-70 off your hands :)

Ruff idle,no power


it sounds like this problems is related to the ETM, or electronic throttle module. if software download was already performed, next step is to clean the throttle body bore. ultimately, the module may need to be replaced.
