Anyone have a shop manual that can tell me what this code means? P2187-System Too Lean at Idle Speed (Bank1)<p>The car is also making a weird humming/whistling sound...I'm taking it in tomorrow, but I want an idea of what could be causing this. Thanks

Re: Check Engine light codes (kapitlxs)

Either your oil cap/dipstick is loose, or (based on your noise) your oil trap is clogged. On your car thats the oil filter housing. Hopefully your under warranty.

Re: Check Engine light codes (Turb04S60)

What would cause the oil filter housing to be clogged? Would it be covered by the extended warranty?

I would say its a poor design on Volvos part since even meticulously maintained cars have had clogged oil traps. As far as the extended warranty goes it depends. Who is the warranty through? Volvo? or an outside company?

If it is the oil trap you'll hear a whining like a UFO from under the hood, and upon pulling the dipstick itll breath a little better.

It's the Volvo Extended Warranty...think it'll be covered?

Re: Check Engine light codes (cicatrizdare)

My car has 83k now....this sounds pretty serious...I don't think I should be driving it around like this, should I?

Re: Check Engine light codes (kapitlxs)

What would cause the oil filter housing to crack though? Overall system pressure? Has this happened to anyone else?

To replace the oil trap I've got quotes from $250-550. The higher quotes were from actual volvo dealers, the lower quote came from a shop ran by a volvo specialist who opened his own shop...I just bought a car with the same issue. The sound it can make is horrible and almost makes you think your turbo is going out. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> Shop around, you should be able to find a decent price...and there are a lot of independent shops in the Seattle area, I remember seeing a pretty big shop that seemed to only do Volvo/Saab up in north Seattle...good luck!

Also: DON'T drive your car for an extended amount of time without getting this fixed, it can cause some pretty serious damage according to one shop I spoke with. Find a good shop and get it done ASAP or chance having more issues arise from the one...
