YOU MAY HAVE A IDLE SPEED CONTROL VALVE PROBLEM, CLEAN IT FIRST, THEN DISCONNECT THE BATTERY, FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE I HAVE ATTACHED.

Here is the most common cause of this stall and idle speed issues, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

2006 volvo s40 2.4I. Where is the ECT(engine


Instructions
    • 1 Open the engine hood by pulling the hood release latch located on the lower kick panel on the driver's side of the Volvo S40. Lift the hood up and prop it on the hood prop.
    • 2 Locate the steering shaft that extends from the firewall to lower suspension located inside the engine compartment, by the front right wheel. Halfway down the shaft, you will locate the power steering pump. The pump is a black container that bolts to the driver's side of the engine block. On the top, you will find a cap that says "Power Steering Fluid."
    • 3 Look to the left of the cap. Bolted to the power steering pump is the thermostat temperature sensor. The sensor has a black round cap and a black wire extending out of the top.

2001 Volvo s40 seems to stall and not start for ten to 15 min. Also has high temperature reading that is false as car is not really hot.


You need to look at the temp sending unit it's probably faulty anthor issue with volvo is dirty throttle body's this raises havoc on the car they idle up down all over the map also you should change the thermostat too as a precautionary measure make sure it's the right temp for your year of your car thanx Chris

you have to understand a service engine soon indicator is letting you know the engine is not running at peak performance and creating unexceptable amounts of emmisions. your engine runs peak at 14-7-1, 14 part air.7 part fuel, 1 combustion stroke, any different it triggers the lite. If your tapping is engine related ,say valve clearence valve.does not seat properly you lose compression on the stroke,improper burn thus the light... in short find the source of the tap and fix

Volvo s40 engine ticks, revs and cuts out


goodday! I asked a question about my S40 Volvo 2001 high idle. The answer is great, but I did not use it because I found out that it the car was giving another fault.

there are times when the engine woulld crank for a long time without firirng. when it finally does it would be powerless to an extent that it doesn't respond to the gas padel. its like it activates some form of inhibitor. When it behaves like that the only way to eventually start it is to disconnect the battery and wait for a few seconds. Now I wonder if it is still the idle motor
