It could be a number of things. Fuel Flow problem, or electrical apparatus heats up and works inefficiently. You could start from the cheaper, less strainous solutions, in this order: Change Fuel Filter, and clean Nozzles. Fuel Pump, Air Mass Meter.

My 2004 xc90 drives great until I want to accelarate, it makes a horrible sound. I have found that the turbo intake pipe is collapsing, any one know the solution ?

Noise is coming from the collapsed hose that goes to the intercooler. The turbo system has to be sealed to create boost. Replace the hose

Just had my 120000 service done on a XC90 which I just purchased. It was running just fine and then started to consume oil like crazy. Took it back to mechanic and he said the turbo is going out. No...

There is the possibility,the turbo was going out and the previous owner had thicker oil with oil treatment additive in the engine,hiding the turbo seal problem.Did your service include an oil and filter change? Your new regular (proper viscosity) oil may now be showing the leaky turbo seal.Did you have a oil change done at your service?Once you have the seal/turbo rebuilt,may sure to always idle the engine a minute before shut off after fast driving.This will increase the life of the turbo seals.

Can I use regular unleaded gas in the 2005 Volvo XC90 (versus premium)? I'm looking at purchasing a used 2005 Volvo XC90 2.5L (5 cy Turbo) and want to know what would happen if I did not use preimum...

new cars have so many engine sensors built in that they automatically adjust from one type of fuel to another.

premium fuel usually has a higher octane rating which should give slightly more power, but most people will never notice the difference while driving the car as the difference is quite small.

switching from one type of fuel to another should certainly not harm the car in any way.

hope this helps

2006 XC90, telling me "engine

If it a turbo model (petrol or diesel) there may be a loose or damaged hose to or from the turbo or intercooler, preventing charge air entering the engine. to have a quick check (this may or may not work, but it's worth a go) open the bonnet/hood with the engine running and listen for any blowing, sucking or whistling noises when the engine is revved. also, if you know anyone with an ODB2 diagnostic unit, they would be able to plug it in (socket under dash) and tell you more accurately what the problem is.
Hope this helps.

Removing turbo on Volvo XC90

not really any special tools vill be required.  You will need access to the underside of the car.  And the parts are really expensive.

Volvo 1998 v70 tdi loss of power and a lot of black smoke lamda fuel light has been on since timming belts replaced been told its the turbo pump runnig at half is this possible and where is the turbo pump...

I don't know about the turbo running at half, but I can give you two ideas.

If it only started after the timing belt was replaced there is a very good chance that the timing is off. The car has very specific instructions due to the variable valve timing.

There is also a chance that there is a hole in one of the turbo hoses. One way to check for a leaking turbo hose is to put the car in reverse and set the parking brake. have someone listen for a large air leak while you power stall the engine. if there is a leak it will make a lot of noise and you can feel for it with your hand, just don't burn yourself.



I hope this helps
