Open Question

My 07 s40 loses power while driving/ urgent engine service light is on and it reads an accelerator sensor code. the mechanic was pretty sure it isn't the pedal sensor nor the throttle body. what can it be?

SOURCE: engine management light volvo s40 problem

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..

Volvo Radiator, Thermostat and Sensors Your cooling system's temperature controls include all coolant temperature sensors, Volvo thermostat, Volvo radiator or expansion tank cap, cooling fan(s) and fan clutch (if equipped). These cooling system parts function primarily independent of the engine but control the engine either through cooling or by sending control signals to your Volvo's electronic systems.
The Volvo thermostat is a spring-loaded valve that opens and closes based on the temperature of the coolant flowing through it. A high temperature reading followed by a drop to normal temperature (or a continuously low temperature) is a common first sign of a sticking Volvo thermostat. However, many other conditions may cause these symptoms, so you need to know how to eliminate each possibility.
The Volvo radiator or expansion tank cap is also a spring-loaded valve reacting to system pressure. It serves to maintain proper system coolant level at predetermined pressures. It must always be replaced with an exact replacement cap with the same pressure setting. Never use other caps except for short-term emergencies!
A belt-driven fan blade for pulling air through the Volvo radiator is usually on the Volvo water pump pulley and should have a fan clutch to control it. The fan clutch allows the fan to turn with the belt at low engine speed and "free-wheel" at higher speeds. A bad fan clutch either doesn't allow the fan to spin at low speed (overheating in traffic) or doesn't allow it to free-wheel at high speed (potential overheating on highway or reduced gas mileage).
An electric fan can be either by itself (usually front-wheel drive) or auxiliary (used with a mechanical fan). Both types are controlled via a temperature sensor - in the Volvo radiator or upper Volvo radiator hose or on the Volvo thermostat or Volvo water pump housing. This sensor is usually an on/off type switch with a fixed temperature setting. (Some vehicles may have 2-3 settings for multi-speed fans.) This sensor is commonly called an "auxilliary fan switch".
Other common temperature sensors are: 1) gauge sender (variable output); 2) warning light sender (on/off type); 3) lambda and/or fuel injection sensor(s) (variable to control fuel injection settings); 4) thermo-time switch (cold start valve control). Your Volvo may have other sensors as well.
Temperature control is critical to both performance and emission control. Unfortunately, this system is the most difficult to troubleshoot without proper equipment and diagrams. It's even more difficult with computers that adjust timing, idle speed, vacuum and fuel delivery automatically to make up for potentially faulty temperature sensor signals.
Maintenance of your cooling system sensors is virtually impossible since there's nothing really to "maintain". Keeping them clean both internally (coolant replacement) and externally (engine cleaning) is the best way to ensure trouble-free driving. Checking and replacing all parts at the factory-recommended time or mileage limits helps as well

SOURCE: Check engine light is on. OBD reads p0191 &

Replacement of the fuel pump would be the case here,unless the fuel filter needs to be changed.To find out,remove the fuel filter,and blow threw it with your mouth,kinda tast bad but it will tell you if the fuel filter is restricted.You should be able to blow threw it easy.

Stabilitrak service comes on and i lose power. could this be the body modularsensor or throttle body sensor.


If you have a cable throttle then not likely, if you look at your throttle body and it is electronic then it could be the throttle body position sensor or possibly the accelerator pedal sensor. Are the any DTC codes present on your truck (check engine lights) cause both of these issues have sensors the will most likely trigger a code light on the dash. If not light comes on I would have it scanned just to make sure it doesn't have any codes stored in memory

I have a 2004 3.9L Mustang with the "check engine soon" light on. I read the codes and 0300, 0301, 0305 and 0316 were up, while the car was still driving fine. Soon, it started to lose strenght, I bar


Best to read the codes first---code p0300 refers to random multiple cyl-- misfire detected causes-- spark plugs---HT leads--ignition coils--wiring.
code p0301 refers tocylinder 1-- misfire detected causes ---engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition /fuel system ---injector---ECT/Maf sensor(Mass air flow) ECM.
code p0305 refers to cylinder 5 misfire detected causes ---same as 0301
code p0316 refers to misfire detected during start up -first 1000 rpms---causes--- engine mechanical fault---wiring----ignition/fuel system---injector. I would run a fuel system pressure pressure test as the common causes here is the fuel/injectors

09 Aveo loses power



The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.



The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type. Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms

I have a volvo v70 d5, an my intercooler has a slight leak. could this affect my performance, as i accelerate hard, engine service urgent light comes up on dash. i have changed my air mass sensor, it made...


Yes, your intercooler is a problem cos it cools down the turbo charger. The turbo is what gives you your extra power, and when it overheats, it loses pressure and thatcauses loss of power.

Engine shakes, check engine light is on and car hesitates


If the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault code(s) that are stored in the computer. Most parts stores offer this service at no charge and the code(s) will help narrow down the problem. (i.e. bad throttle position sensor, etc.) Sure hope this helps you find a resolution to your problem. Best wishes.

Code drive 5 . My 2004 trailblazer posted a code "drive 5". It showed the "reduced engine poweer" light, and would not respond to the accelerator pedal. I had been driving in slow traffic. I pulled over,...


Thottle body sensor, accelerator pedal sensor, restricted air flow...will all trigger this fault light. Go to your local Autozone, they will run an OBD scan for free, and explain the fault codes to you so the correct repairs can be made.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

Rough idle and acceleration


I am not a mechanic, so I dont know for sure, but it sounds like a problem I had with my car. It turned out there was a bad wire. We serviced the wires and spark plugs and problem solved.
