2004 volvo s60 engine trouble

Just wondering if you had any suggestions for my problem? I recently bought a 2004 s60 FWD from a whole sale guy, clean carfax and dmv records, and it has quit on me 3 times. It has 53,000k on it and has not thrown any codes or done it for the dealer.:( It happens when I have slowed down after driving for a little while. Each time it has happened I have put it in neutral and it starts back up like a champ. I have good gas in it, Chevron mid grade but am at a loss as to what to do next. My inclination is to try and get the guy who sold me the car to take it back...do you have any suggestions. Thanks for your time.

It is possible that your idle air controller is sticking. The root cause of this is usually carbon and gunk, but my experience is in *** cars. The symptoms match, and were also often "no code" problems. Cleaning the throttle body and the idle air passages may help.

Before you buy any high dollar parts, check with a more knowledgable person than me.

Good luck, hope this helps.

I have the same problem with my S60. I have since found that some of the problems is caused by the accelerator pedal sending confusing signals to the ECU. I am in the process of replacing the pedal and rheostat assembly to see what improvement there is.
I recently spoke to the only technician that seems to know about this problem. When I told him about the gauges dropping and in my car the headlights come on and I cannot open the windows he immediately knew what the problem was. He asked my if I fitted a bluetooth device to the car, which I have. I fitted a bluetooth car kit some time ago. He said he had the same problem with another car and after removing the car kit the problem was solved. I have done a lot of research on this problem and you are welcome to contact me for more information at wvdm@global.co.za

By the way, if you press the trip meter reset button the gauges will come alive again

I have a volvo s60 2003, my whole dash is out, no lights, no nothing. Can't see if I got gas or the engines hot... Nothing! Anyone else have this problem??


You should have the vehicle scanned with Volvos' Vadis system to see if the problem is in the drivers information module. If it is bad, you will have to replace the dash, and have software downloaded. Unfortunately, this is expensive, and I have seen several that had to be replaced.

It sounds like some of your problem is in your ABS module. These commonly go bad. Contact this guy about a rebuild, http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/ it's much cheaper than buying a new one. After that lets see what you still have malfunctioning.

VOLVO S60 2004 D5 3RD GEAR GEARBOX CRUNCH


Sounds as if a synchronizer is going out in 3rd gear, or 3rd gear maybe stripped. I would get it checked by a tranny (transmission) shop before it ended up costing you more money. There is a possibility that there may be some shavings on that gear as well, which would just need cleaned.

2004 volvo s 60 check engine light on


I would replace the bad 02 sensor and also have the engine checked for a tune up and fuel injection purge. Make sure whoever does the repairs clears the ECM memory so the light will go out. Bad spark plugs and dirty fuel injectors can cause a rich condition that a weak 02 sensor can't keep up with.
