I hate to say that you may have PCM problems. I would start with making sure that your getting power to PCM, good grounds etc. check for mice chewing on wires stuff like that.....

check the plug gaps ?25th then go from their as you might be better off renewing all four with new ones but if plug gap too wide then this will cause problems regap plugs every 10,000 miles and renew as and when the electrodes are worn to excess

Best would be to replace hose unless you are very sure you are able to re-crimp end securely. Next, draw vacuum as you would for house HVAC, then charge system to correct fill specs. If you lost any oil when hose blew, might want to add a little of correct grade.

Oops, this is a big mistake, but fortunately not the end of the world.

The 27 mm bolt anchors the B4 transmission band, which is what gives you third gear. If you were to drive the car now, you can't shift into third, but you can skip over it (geartronic) and shift into 4th.

There is a way to use a small screwdriver to try to shift the band back into place to where the threaded part rests right under the bolt hole.
If that fails, then you can drill a small hole in the 27 mm bolt and use a screwdriver through that hole and hold the band in place while you snug the bolt, then seal the hole (tap it and use a small screw, etc.).

If that fails, the trans comes out and has to be disassembled and reassembled.

Write down a little diagram on the routing of the serpentine belt!!!

Then use a 1/2" or 3/4" wrench with a short extension to insert into the belt tensioner and undo the tension to unhook the belt.

Then it's pretty straight forward, undo the hose, undo the line, then there are holes in the pulley that you turn until they line up with the bolts and you can undo them.

Install is the reverse. :) Oh, and make sure you get the right fluid. I think Volvo specifies the Pentosin CHF11S, but the Pentosin CHF202 is compatible and easier to find/get.

When you refill it, the easiest way I've found to bleed the system is to fill the reservoir, twist on the lid half a turn (to lock it in place, but not tight, you want to let air bubbles escape) and then have the front wheels off the ground and turn the wheels lock-to-lock a couple of times. Then check the fluid and bring it back to level, then do the lock-to-lock steering thing again. That should have most bubbles out. Make sure the oil level is good and then snug the lid down and start the car.

The engine will run the pump and you can steer it lock to lock a few times again and re-check the fluid.
You DON'T want to run it low, because when you start wearing seals and parts in the steering, you will at some point end up replacing the rack, which is messy to do on your own, and expensive if you have a mechanic do it.

Good luck!

it will not work since it already has software in it to match the vehicle it is coming out of. best to buy new from Volvo and have the correct software downloaded to your vehicle

Check fuses, then connect with diagnostic tool and look for error codes.

2003 Volvo XC90 | Answered on Jan 24, 2015


What I would do first is to go to a Volvo shop or dealer who can hook up the VIDA/DiCE interface (DiCE is the computer interface, VIDA is the software) and tell you EXACTLY what the code/problem is.
It could be as simple as an ABS sensor at a wheel.

Once you know what the problem is and had it remedied, you MIGHT have to use VIDA/DiCE to turn off the light. Alternatively, you might be able to disconnect the NEGATIVE battery cable for a half hour to clear it.

If you can clear it by disconnecting the battery and the code comes back, you still have a problem - then it's back to VIDA/DiCE to determine exactly what the car thinks is a problem and remedy that.

I am not entirely sure if you need to get a software update after you've swapped an ABS module, but I seem to remember someone saying that you do...
