Question about 2000 Volvo S70
The problem seems to occur after the car has warmed up. When you put your foot on the brake the cars idle will drop below normal and as you stop the car will stall. If you can stop without the car stalling the rpms will increase back to normal and the car will sit and idle fine. It appears that the car does not know to disengage the transmission until the speed is down to zero and this causes the car to stop please help?
These models had a problem with the electronic control modules, and this is what controls the idle speed. Sometimes they just need to be cleaned, but sometimes they are defective. Volvo has extended the warranty on some of them to 10 years or 200,000 miles if it is found to be defective.
