Have Volvo Questions? Ask a Volvo Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** you tell me if the noise was like a grinding type or noise or more of a knocking noise?
We can continue here without and additional costs. I have one more question, which engine do you have in your Volvo?
Thank you. Being that it is the V8 model I doubt it is the countershaft bearing. I usually remove the engine drive belt first and run the engine to see if it goes away. If it continues then it is inside of the engine. I would then usually remove the front engine cover because it is more likely that the noise is coming from the front of the engine. If the vehicle is well taken care of then it is unlikely that it is an internal bearing problem. Since the power steering repair did not fix the vehicle I would request to be refunded that money also.
