Hey guys, I'd really appreciate if you could help with a question I have. I own a 2016 S60 T5 2L turbo FWD engine with 45,000 miles bought used a year ago. Still under 7 yr, 100,000 CPO warranty now.
For the last six months or so I get an intermittent "yip" or chirp (burping sound?) sound at idle which worsens at times (not always) when turning on the air. It lasts half a second and will randomly occur at idle. This sound is subtle but clear and happens about 50% of my trips when doing city driving.
No dashboard codes lit up. I've had two issues with my car since buying it used; exhaust manifold leak and low fuel pressure sensor both fixed under warranty.
The dealership I go to doesn't seem to work things up thoroughly; there's one I like better but is an hour away and hard to get to from work. The one close to me just says they can't hear or replicate previous issues even though it's subtle but clear. I previously asked them if a creaky steering wheel was ok and they just said they couldn't hear it even though I recorded it. I haven't brought up this particular issue "yip" sound with them.
Somebody said it could be a belt but I only have 45,000 miles. Serpentine belt failures and the like are rare before 100k miles as far as I know.
I was going to call a Volvo Indy shop and ask them to look into the issue and pay them their hourly rate. Sound reasonable?
I just want my car to last 150,000 miles or so which is why I like to be proactive on maintenance. Recently I had my transmission fluid drained at a local indy shop.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
