I resently purchased a 98 S90 that knocks when starting. The knocking appears while the key is being turned. Once the car starts it's fine. Sometimes the knocking is followed by a ticking noise once the car is started (probably a lifter). This car has 92000 miles on it.<P>Does anyone know what could be causing this?<P>Also, I am looking for a operation manual.

I think that my 95' 960 makes that ticking noise as well, but I guess I usually don't notice it because I can't hear it when inside the car. I am not sure what it is, but when I had my car in for service a while back, the Volvo folks didn't say anything about it.<P>-Drew

Do you have any idea how to get the headlight washers to work? and, what the three buttons next to the shift lever are for? They read W S E.<P>Brian<P>
