v40 problems and more problems

I'm in a 2004 V40.

After 8000 miles, the check engine light came on and I had to bring it
in for warranty repair. They replaced the head gasket.

Then, at 11000 miles, the check engine light came on again. This time,
they replaced the entire engine.

Now, I'm at 26000 miles. Every time I accelerate around a turn, the
'brake' light comes on on the dash. There's also a distinct ticking
coming from under the hood for the first few minutes after I start the
car every morning.

Has anybody else had problems like these?

Ya.. with a bought-new 1972 VW van. I thought it was _FORD_ who bought
Volvo! ;-)

VOLVO JOKE: "...then, at 11000 miles, the check engine light came on
again. I went to the dealer and they checked the engine, couldn't
find it, so they installed a new one. [buh-duh-bum] THANK YOU... I'll
be here all week.. try the synthetic lube."

The brake light is probably due to low fluid level in the brake
reservoir. That could be caused by worn pads. Check the brake fluid
level to be sure that it is not too low, but have the brakes checked
as well.

The ticking is probably from a hydraulic lifter that is leaking down
overnight. WOrst case it should only take a few seconds to pump up
when the car starts.. Have it checked.

Should still be under warranty, so have the dealer figure it out.
