Having problems with your 2001 Volvo S40 ?
Vilvo s40 serviced in june; engine oil warning
\015 Volvo s40 serviced in june; strange whirring noise started in the engine and shortly after engine oil warning light came on, checked oil level and no oil. refilled with oil but engine now racing and billowing white smoke. Anybody know what has happened and why should engine oil disappear in a short time given that the car was serviced regularly and did not show any signs of burning engine oil\015
Most definitely the cylinder head gasket is gone.the oil does not just disappear,it finds its way to the radiator,i.e. mixes with the water.unplug the rediator cap with care(when the engine is cold)and u will see some kind of sludge,creamy colour,which confirms that the cylinder head gasket is burnt.u need an engineer to do the job for u.
