    If the temp gauge went up, check your oil to see if you have coolant mixed with the oil. It could be a blown head gasket, which would also account for it being hard to run.

This is very strong indication of a blown head gasket on your engine. Your temp gauge will go up and you will lose all kinds of power. They do sell what are called "Head" Sets at your local auto parts stores for aound 150 bucks (most of them are cheaper than that) if you are mechanically inclined you can do this job yourself with a Manual for your vehicle and a good weekend of time. It will save you bundles of money by doing the job yourself. Good luck to you and thanks for using FixYa!

High idle shifts hard but idle will go back down but shifts hard

You'd probably have to take it in to get it diagnosed, but I'm going to guess that it's the electronic throttle body.
The throttle body and throttle position sensor are in the same unit and if one goes bad, you have to replaced the whole thing.

This will cause high idle, stalling, hard shifts and irratic throttle.

Volvo 240 temp gauge and rough idle

Check the wiring from the connector at the center of the firewall to the engine. Many 83/84 240's had problems with the insulation crumbling and the wires shorting out. These problems got worse when this harness was disturbed in any way. Let me know if this helps or if you need further info.

Idle irratic

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) 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

Hi, Irratic revs when idle

You need to reset the throttle body. Sometimes you can do this by going out to your car and turning the key to the "on" position. Don't crank the engine - just turn it to on. Let it sit like this for 15 min. Your throttle body shoulld reset. Good luck. Check out audiforums. c o m or audiworld for audi spec issues. Good luck!

Irratic idle at startup

No check engine light? You have a couple of sensors that may be causing that, coolant temperature, incoming air temperature sensor to name 2 of them. Personally I'd have it put on a scan tool & remove the guess work. Some parts places will do it for free, well as long as you buy the parts there.
