Hi Everyone. I am a new member to the forum. I am from the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. And I recently bought myself a Volvo 850 T5 StationWagon to replace the previous vehicle - a national car.
It hasn't even been a week yet. Bought it for RM65K, and have sent the car backto the dealer once for small faults (Electronic Display bulb), topup of Power Steering Oil and greasing of 'something' at both front tyres to stop it to squeal when taking sharp corners to get to my parking spot (four levels underground!)
I informed the chief mechanic there that I could smell petrol everytime i park and step out of the vehicle, and he informed me that it could be the breather 'hole' but nothing to worry about. Huh?
This morning, at idle speed, while waiting at the traffic lights, the car experienced a mild jerk, and suddenly, the LAMBDA light switched on. I remembered in the morning, more white smoke appeared from the exhaust pipe, than normally.
Can anyone help to explain the cause? Or the estimations for the costs of repairs?
