Volvo C30 Common Issues

DPF warning light

A problem on many diesel cars, normally down to being used for short journeys. This is fixed by the engine being run for a long period if time at high revs to unclog the DPF.

A/C Failure

If you have it on the coldest setting and it isn’t blowing out ice cold air, then it is probably a fault with the condenser. This is resolved by replacing the failed condenser.

ABS Pump Module Failure

This is known to fail on the C30, this should bring up the anti skid control light. To fix this you will need to do a diagnostic check to make sure its the part that has failed, if it is then it will need a replacement ABS module.

Rear Suspension Bushes

If you can hear a knocking or high pitch squeaking noise coming from the rear suspension then either the upper or lower suspension bushes are failing.

So I was finally able to go down to the drag strip last night, got to see what my car will do in the 1/4, for now. I was running 15.00's all night, and then on my final pass I got my 14. Also, I learned the perfect technique to do a massive burnout Ƕ

In the middle of the night I went ahead & tried E85 in my C30. I had about 2 gallons left of 91, put 5 gallons of 87 in, and then 3 gallons of E85, just to try and get a feel for the right ratio. The horsepower figures are calculated to be at the wheel.

My father is trading in my little Volvo :(

So since we already have about 6 cars in our driveway, and I don’t drive my Volvo very much, my dad has decided to trade in my car and another for a new car for my stepmom. I will miss my little Anita very much, but at least we might be getting the new XC90! Besides, my stepmom’s current car has too many miles on it, so I agree that she needs something new. There is also something else I wanted to add… My dad was thinking of replacing the little Volvo with… drum roll please…. A Mini Cooper! Now I do like Minis, but I don’t love them, really. And anyway, we still wouldn’t be getting any other new cars until I come back home next summer, so…. yeah.
