Your elect. acclerator is most likley malfunctioning. Volvo has a lot a of problems with either the part itself or it may just be a softwear issue which can be fixed by a upgrade. Either way you will have to take it to a dealer or a shop with factory compatable diagnosis equipment.

My car has a problem where when i exalerate


it could be timing or it may be a bad speed control sensor. have someone check the timing. if the timing is ok then id try the sensor its not that expensive. should be under 50 dollars at auto zone.also when you say you had it serviced are you meaning a tune up as well if you havent had the car tuned up in the last 35-40,ooo miles id have that done as well.

5 speed having truble exalerating


engine knocking is produced when when the pistons misfire. Try adding Octane 89 at the pump. if that fixes the noise then all set, if not then you have another problem much bigger.

Poor acceleration can be from drivers error. make sure you shift and the correct time and at the proper RPMs. Lets assume you are shifting correctly, the poor acceleration could be from a leaking head gasket.
