Volvo S40 2002 ~~must Sell~~ No Reserve ~~ Needs Work, But Is My Daily Driver on 2040-cars
Springville, Alabama, United States
Volvo s40 2002 ~~~~~ New Lower Price~~~~~Must Sell
This car is dependable and gets great gas mileage, BUT with issues.
It's currently my daily driver (70miles round-trip/5 days week). I get 30mpg.
I do not have the time to troubleshoot and fix it. The codes are listed below.
It has a clear title.
The only real issue is an idling issue with the car related to the modules. This causes low idling and sluggish acceleration. (You have to hold your foot on the gas pedal or it quits). I have replaced 2 modules with limited successes, the Idle speed control valve and the boost sensor. I have fairly new tires on the car. It needs minor body work on the driver side rear quarter panel and new paint all over - the hood is primed, but not painted.
The car has 212,000 miles. I had the engine rebuilt that has about 90,000 miles on it. If I had time to fix it, I would keep it. The car still has a few good years left. I've had 2 mechanics tell me 2 different things: bad throttle body and bad turbo.
It has been wrecked:
1. Someone backed into me in a parking deck. Minor - front passenger side quarter panel *see photo
2. The driver side has paint damage and rear quarter panel as a result of hitting a guard rail on an interstate on-ramp (minor). *see photo
3. The other wreck was when I purchased it wrecked and fixed it. The front and rear had been hit. The air bag did NOT deploy. I replaced the hood, one front light and radiator as a result and in the rear I replaced one taillight.)
P0236 (turbo circuit low)
P0508 (idle control sensor)
P0445 (evaporative purge valve)
P0031, P0037 Oxygen sensors
I've been told that these codes are all connected and are the cause of the low idle and sluggish acceleration.
I replaced the P2401 Boost Sensor.
The P0245 (turbo waste gate) was checked & is working
sold "as is" no warranty expressed or implied.

Polestar Performance has been around since 1996, but until recently, it only did two things: manage Volvo motorsports operations and run a specialist consumer-facing side that built concept cars and boosted Volvo's turbocharged production cars by 15 to 60 horsepower. Five years ago, it fulfilled its long-held desire to engineer an actual production car, first creating the C30 Polestar Performance Concept, a showcar that led to the C30 Polestar Limited Edition.

That foray led to the berserker, 508-horsepower 2013 S60 Polestar Concept that Auto Motor und Sport called "a hard slap in the face to the Germans," and that model led to the limited-edition S60 Polestar production car just for Australia, a car reviewers swooned for, with one comparing its chassis finesse to the Ferrari 458 Italia.
All of which is to say, Polestar has a good start for a motorsports and tuning company to make good on its production car dreams. The 2015 Volvo S60 Polestar and V60 Polestar keep that momentum going, and beautifully at that.

Volvo is introducing a new engine family based on its new Drive-E philosophy, which encompasses "all innovations made to reduce the impact on the environment," the automaker says. Less cylinders allows for less environmental impact, so the new engines are all four-pots. They also were designed to pair easily with Volvo's upcoming hybrid drive system, which "will reach power figures in the V8 territory" and play a "dominant part of the top end of [Volvo's] range," says Derek Crabb, Vice President Powertrain Engineering. Volvo also says we can expect "power curves that give exciting drivability compared with engines with more cylinders."
Volvo says some versions of the engine were designed targeting best-in-class fuel economy. There are both gasoline and diesel options, but the latter of which isn't scheduled for US consumption. Instead, the US will be offered two states of tune of the gasoline Drive-E engine for front-wheel-drive vehicles. Some of Volvo's current all-wheel-drive powertrains will remain available in the US until the company has transitioned solely to the new, fuel-efficient inline-fours.
Happy April, everyone. And we all know what this first day of the month means: April Fools' Day. Today is a national holiday for pranksters with the Internet acting as a serious enabler, and it's always fun to see what kind of vivid imaginations exist out there in the automotive world. The abundance of fake news gets a little old as the day rolls on, but we did manage to get in a few chuckles thanks to a handful of major automakers and automotive news outlets that got into the pranking spirit this year
Some of our favorites this year includes Subaru showing what happens when you combine a bunch of rumors, a Corvette some may have already thought was a joke or Honda providing some in-car innovation circa the late 1980s. Honestly, we're still waiting for official confirmation from Mitsubishi that the recently introduced 2014 Mirage is an elaborate April Fools' joke using a failed design intended for the 1995 Geo Metro. We dug up as much "official" OEM foolishness we could find, as well as some of our other favorites, and posted them all below.
