Andy A asked:


I had a mechanic (Volvo specialist) tell me I need a 100,000 mile tune-up (runs a few thousand dollars) on my 99 V70 Cross Country. It includes replacing timing belts and a few other things. Is this tune-up really necessary?

How much should it cost to replace the fuel pump on my 1992 Volvo 740 Turbo Wagon?

Steve B asked:


I just had a full 120,000 mile tuneup and timing belt replaced about 10 days ago. Two days later I noticed the smell of gas and a day after that I noticed my car was leaking about a half quart of oil per day. I took my car to the nearest Volvo mechanic, which is not the same dealership I did the service at (Bill Kidd’s Volvo in Timonium, MD). The new Volvo mechanic (Scandinavian Auto in Rockville, MD) is claiming I need a new fuel pump and will not be able to see why my oil is leaking until they do this service for safety reasons. When I had the tuneup done at Bill Kidd’s, they had torn the fuel line (I believe) and replaced it. Now I am stuck here as to what I should do. Can someone please help me out? Of course, I believe that Bill Kidd’s must be responsible for the improper installation of some parts for all of this to happen within two days of my getting the car back! This is costing me all kinds of money and a huge headache. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Steve

What can I do about a 1990 Volvo that won’t shift into park?

Monday, April 4th, 2011

Alex asked:


1990 Volvo 240, with 220,000 miles on it. It won’t shift into park, but rather downshifts into reverse automatically. Automatic transmission, by the by. It’s E-braked and blocked, but that’s only a temporary fix. My suspicions are that it’s either a bent or broken parking pin, thoughts? My budget is limited and I don’t want to spend $1800 fixing my $2000 car. Thank you. Contact if more info is needed.
