Question about 2001 Volvo V70
I have a 2001 volvo v70. The car shakes and sputters when excellerating from 0 to 35 mph. Also the abs light and check engine light falshes really fast. There was also a slight metalic/rubber smell.
You have an engine misfire....unless you have expertise in this area you need to see your local shop as you will damage your catalytic converter if you continue to drive. An OBD II scan tool will id the cylinder to help but knowledge here is key!!

Check the Coil Pack Rubber insulator boots. If you have one that is torn that will cause your problem. The Boots are only $8.50 each through IPD.

Sputtering is more than likely a bad ignition coil. If the MIL (check engine light) is flashing it indicates possible damage to the cat converter. LOTS of coil problems on these cars-Replace them all unless you want to keep bringing it back for the next year. ABS is probably a module. Volvo has lots of issues with this. The ABS/Tracs control module has solder joints that go bad in the control module 99% of the time it is the issue. Have the module repaired/replaced. 35 years working Volvo's professionally

Check your coil packs as the rubber breaks down and causes misfires. Also sounds like your Dashboard (DIM) needs repaired by resoldering at a local SMT specialist.
