The best thing is to go to your local Volvo maintenance shop or Volvo experts to find out whats the problem..usually the coomon ones I think is the programs inside its ECU unit..you try this..ask the volvo experts to reset the ECU and lets see..if problem arise then it is no doubt you might need the sensor..hope this help..

There is sooo many problems with the 1.8ltr engine (2001) ..for example the oil ports in the cylinder head casting are way too small.. this causes clogging and obvious lack of flow and then lack of power due to compression ratio going out the window.. I've re-built quite a wee number of these puppies.. including my wife's own car..so I heartily recommend the below..
1/ THOROUGHLY FLUSH EVERY LAST BIT OF GRIME, DEBRIS, LACQUERS & OIL OUT OF ENTIRE ENGINE..
2/CHANGE FILTER & REFILL WITH SEMI-SYNTHETIC 15/40 OIL..
3/ OIL AND FILTERS MUST BE CHANGED EVERY 3,000 TO 6,000MILES TO MAINTAIN ENGINE (IF NOT BORING OIL PORTS AND QUITE SUBSTANTIAL WORK & EXPENSE)
This should give immediate effect, but you may also consider the CRANK/FLYWHEEL SENSOR.. It's NOTORIOUS.. Along with the IGNITION COIL PACK.. CONSTANTLY CRACKING HIGH TENSION LEADS..Etc...
Hope this helps someone out there..

Ok guys check this out.I ran out of petrol(ok I am a girl!) and the yellow engine light stayed on afterwards.Hyundai said I would have to sell my soul to get it sorted but would be ok to run I t failed it's Mot on emission,but the local garage managed to temporarily fix the problem to get it through.The light came back on after wards-!!! So I did some research on Internet and here's how to reset it yourself-- Take off positive lead from battery,then turn ignition key on to get rid of any stored power.Then pump the footbrake(yeah I wondered why!) for about 20 secs.You will hear allsorts of clicking in the engine as ecu resets.Then reconnect battery lead!! Wallah !!!!
I went armed with this knowledge to the local garage(much to their amusement) and asked if they could reset the ecu,and they said a dealer would have to do it.I said well I know how and asked them to disconnect battery for me(their frowns got deeper by the minute).The rest I did in front of them,They were gobsmacked!!!!
They were amazed and asked me to call in a few days to tell them if it had worked permanent as they had learned something----so far so good!!!!
I f you have a computorised radio make sure you know the reset code for that as it may knock it off.
The ecu resets when you drive away.Now drives like a dream.
