Emission System Warning Light Showing & Regular Service Message

I have a 2002 Volvo S80 T Automatic, 2litre engine. It had a full service last September. In the past week the service message has appearead and the Emission System Warning Light is showing. Have had trouble starting the car and not getting as much power when accelerating. Feels like I still have my foot on the brake sometimes! Have been advised that I need a new Sensor. Wondering if this is what is causing the loss of power.

The 1st thing to do is find out which of the over 125 trouble codes is stored in the computers memory, go to any Kragen or Autozone they will test the system for free.

Check engine light (emission system service required) Help?!?!


There may be problem with the mass air flow sensor (very common with Volvo). This causes the fuel system to malfunction.

You may have noticed increased fuel consumption, loss of power and general 'lazyness'.

Better to take it to authorized Volvo service for a checkup/fix.

My 2002 Volvo S80 is running very rough and a light is on that says, "Engine System Service Required". Can someone help?


Hello. I recommend that you take your vehicle to an autozone, or other autoparts store, or a volvo dealership and get it scanned. That is the only way to pinpoint the issues that are generating the engine system service required message. I would do this ASAP so that you do not find yourself stranded somewhere. good luck with it. regards, Joe

Emission sysytem warning light showing volvo s80 2000


There are a several items that can turn the light on. The list is too long to put here. Go by your local Autozone and they will read the emission codes and tell you what they are for free. Return here and post the codes and let's see what we can narrow it down to.

Bouncing Volvo S80 2002


Get your full weight on the left rear corner and give the car several bounces up and down to get some momentum going. Stop bouncing and watch the car. It should return and only bounce one half time more. Also worth looking at shock for signs of oil leaking. I suspect the rattling may be coming from a broken anti roll bar link. Once again a good look under the car is required.

Cheers John
