Question about 2000 Volvo V70

2 Answers

I appear to have intermittent hesitation on my v70xc (2000)

When driving there appears to be a hesitation it is almost as if the engine is going to stop, although it never has stopped it is quite worrying when you are overtaking.

I had a similar problem on my 2001 v70 and a couple of times the car simply slowed and then stopped. After a couple of minutes it restarted fine. I took it in to the dealer and there was a recall on something - the first step was to reprogram it (free). If it continues, they will replace whatever was the problem. Sorry, but I can't remember what the specific problem was (fuel injector maybe?)

2000 Toyota solara 6 cylinder seems to hesitate between 45 and 55 mph

ever do the 60k mile tuneup? this decade?
if it does run perfect
and only hesitates for a second (you never said when)
you TIP-IN the throttle. and it hesitates for a very short time (1s) and
then catches up (does it) and WOT is good power.(wide open throttle) up a hill
then that is a BAD TPS. Hard to test and ECU never reports
it for one good reason, the ECU thinks the driver is crazy
so ignores it, (some times driving crazy is justified) see?
like passing, and should not be...

the TPS gets worn and it fails to report your fast foot
and the ECU fails to activate Enrichmode,
the Air meters. catch up, and power returns.

i can test any TPS , i have a scope, to see the glitch failures
most shops just replace it on suspicion.
