Being in the states you probably stand a better chance than I do of getting something back. Some sellers say none required, but then admit that they get their info from the various Volvo Forums. The hefty price tag is the only downside to the whole affair. However, the vehicle was not exhibiting the characteristics at the time. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer where the contact was informed that the throttle needed to be replaced. Now it looks like I'm good to go for a while.
Shipping box will have to be bigger and I'm going to take it all apart anyways, but whatever. I ve only had this vehicle for 3 months now. You can imagine my reply! This is about how much is lost each time. Anyone want to buy a house or condo from me so that I can fix my car? The contact continued to apply pressure to the accelerator pedal and the vehicle stalled. I hope this post helps you in some way.
Mary I have a 2006 S80 2. I never even came to a stop. I would recommend using the Volvo cleaner since it cleanes and lubricates the throttle plate. I used basically the same process described in the video at the bottom of this post. I then spread out some old newspapers on top of the engine with some kitchen paper to soak up the cleaner. I pushed to gas pedal to the floor and back up and then half way down, absolutely nothing worked.
The contact stated that the vehicle failed to accelerate from a complete stop. You would think if they extended the warranty on the original part the replacement should be similarly covered. The problem has got worse over about three years. I tried to stop and starting and still remain in sleep Mode! Volvo has also released a number of updates, both software and in service procedures to deal with these problems. Who knows, Volvo would probably claim that whatever they did resolved the problem.
The service rep checked to see if there were any recalls for my vehicle and there were none that applied to my vehicle and as far as technical service bulletins were concerned there were two that applied but even though, my vehicle still would not qualify under any extended warranty because my vehicle was purchased in europe and shipped it back to the U. I put it in drive again and everything appeared to work okay after that. My mechanic was very impressed. The also commented that they consider customer loyalty and note that had I bought the car privately and had not had it serviced at the dealers in recent years. We could have been killed and turner Volvo says there's nothing they can do.
Limp mode is designed so that the car does not come to a sudden halt and can still be driven at low speed to a position of safety. This is about how much is lost each time. . Once you put it back together I think you should be fine. I started using the Volvo Forums to find out how to replace the glass in my headlight assembly.
I purchased an after market contact-less unit, this is a 1999 S70 T5, installed as directed by the seller on e-bay. This design affects almost a half-million Volvo gasoline cars. Here are some photos from before the cleaning. We determined that this was not a safety related matter and therefore we did not launch a recall. It is a procedure to take the motor out of limp mode.
Disconnected the pipe from the other side of the cooler? The fuse is in the engine compartment also. If anyone is parting out a 2004 S80 2. I then let that sit for 30 minutes or so and came back with an old toothbrush and scrubbed it down. Strong gas odor, discovered fuel dripping down side of tank under vehicle on passenger's side. My rough idle was cured a couple of times with a clean, although I still occasionally got the 'engine system service required' or 'engine system service urgent' along with the occasional loss off cruise control - but shortly after the last clean it went really wrong.
However, since that sensor has to be rolled into a perfect circle there are limits to how thick the carbon can be, otherwise it will simply crack. Am I going to be paying to replace this in another few years? I then put the car into reverse and it seemed to work. The vehicle drastically reduced speed and stalled several times without warning. I took it to turner Volvo, here in sacramento, ca and they said they couldn't duplicate the problem and there weren't any codes in the computer so there was nothing they could do. Metal wipers travel across these tracks according to the gas pedal position input.
On Friday 23rd August, it cut out 27 times in 6 miles. If a new part is needed, we have reduced the cost of the part and that reduction remains in place. I would be nice to think I could get something back - especially considering the other problems I am experiencing this month. Is this a turbo or none turbo engine? You would think if they extended the warranty on the original part the replacement should be similarly covered. The photo on the top illustrates potentiometer strips which have been removed from a failed throttle body unit. Manufacturers can voluntarily recall cars for problems that do not affect these, though.
