Volvo Noise after water


#1

The Volvo making the noise after going through a puddle has a bilge pump that is going bad. The bilge pump is part of the little-known Louisiana ?swamp package? that is only available from Southern Louisiana Volvo dealers. The Brothers can be forgiven for not knowing of this obscure equipment.


#2

There is insufficient clearance between the driveshaft & exhuast systen on these cars. The cold water from a puddle causes the exhaust system to suddenly bend up and touch the driveshaft. There are new exhuast hangers available which increase the clearance. This is described in a Volvo Tech Net Note available to all technicians at the Volvo dealership.


#3

is this on all models or a specific model?
