Have Volvo Questions? Ask a Volvo Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi im kevin what is it actually doing this morning ? Does it try to turn? What is oil level like now ? Any signs of leaking?
Ok i hate to say it but it sounds as though engine may have seized .the engine oil lubricates the crankshaft and many other mechanical components.if low for a chort period it can cause metal filings to build up in oil and score the mating surfaces of bearings causing engine to seize .you would need to try and turn engine over by hand ( using rathcet )from the crankshaft pully to confirm
The oil lights come on when they are very low the tapping and knocking is the worrying part .you can turn engine by the bolf that holds crankshaft pulley on
