2001 Volvo S40 - Chewed wire

Car has about 58,000 miles on it. A cable to the battery looked like it was chewed. Car was running fine. We replaced cable and had an oil change. Exhaust is sputtering and high semi-whistling noise and car stalls after we turn it on.

Interesting. Did you have a question? Is there a yellow warning light glowing on the dash… the check engine light?

If one cable was chewed, then there are probably others. Someone needs to look around while the engine is running. It sounds like a vacuum leak, maybe from a vacuum hose with a bite taken out. I hear they are tasty with a little hot salsa.


Thank you for letting us know the running state of your vehicle… What now?
