Question about 2005 Volvo S60
I have a 2005 Volvo S60 with a hesitation problem when the accelerator is pushed full out. My local Volvo repair shop has done the requisite computer downloads from Volvo, but the problem still exists. And while on the analysis computer there are no indications of transmission problems, we now suspect this is where we need to look. The car has 65 thousand miles.
Had a similar problem recently where I would press the accelerator almost to the floor before I got a response and when I ran the A/C it was worse. Also my car kept stalling out when at idle. Volvo dealerships are extremely expensive. I took mine to a Bosch service center (more of a mom & pop shop) and the price was more reasonable. The drivability (sp?) problem was the rear oxygen sensor for me. I also had a fuel pressure sensor and MAP (labeled as pressure sensor from Volvo) sensor replaced. The parts are expensive, but it fixed my issue. There is a front and rear oxygen sensor so it could be either. The parts are $219 each. The fuel pressure and MAP sensor are cheaper, but only by about $40. They are not hard to replace though. Once I had the rear oxygen sensor replaced the car was back to normal. I have a 2003 S60 with 97K miles.
