The volvo s80 2.9l 2001 model, which has a mileage of 46,000 kms is showing 'emission service required' and the engine cuts off when slowing down or at stops. Is it possible that, at the mileage of 46,000 kms, the Throttle could be the problem as one local mechanic say? best regards Keto Segwai

When you car is displaying engine system service required, what will one do?


The car computer keeps track of the number of kms/miles that was done since the last service when this light and counter was reset: according to the car computer mileage log, the car is now due for its next 'regular' service: take it to a garaged for its overdue service and they will reset the warning.

Hope it helps.

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.

I have emission system requires service in my volvo s60 2001 can anyone please list for me the possible part defeacts causing this error, and how i can fix it ?? thank u appreciate any help!!


its not a defective problem it is a reminder to change the oxy. sensor you can clear this buy removing the positive cable for five min reconnect stat engine. the best solution is to take the car to the nearest parts store like auto zone will check the codes and will provide asst to the oxygen sensor replacement . see the oxygen sensor helps maintain proper gas and air ratio to provide you with the best gas mileage 14.7to1 ratio in these times the money you spend to replace the sensor will save you in gas money in the long run plus you are helping the environment thanks for the question Lee

Failed emmission mot & light says service required and cuts revs


What really happens is your service check indicator light switches itself on due to completion of 10,000 or 5,000 Km (depending on the manufacturer's specs) from your previous oil change or service. The internal clock keeps track of your mileage travelled and let you know when the 10,000 or 5,000 km is up. All that is required is to RESET the service indicator light. On some cars, the resetting of the service light can be done by the car owner which normally involves pressing a button at the front Instrument Panel and so on and so forth. If you have the user manual for your car, I suggest you read it to see if there is anything on resetting the service light.
The bad news is not all vehicle manufacturers have a reset button at the front dashboard, and some requires the use of a Diagnostic Scanner to do this. Ask your mechanic if you are not sure.
The speed is cut down to 60 is due to the fact that if you continue to drive your car after the prescribed mileage without changing the engine oil, there will be 'accelerated' wear and tear to your engine and perhaps even an early engine overhaul. Driving with a long overdue engine oil change is bad but driving it at speed would be worst. I believe you get the drift.
As for your mot test, it is mandatory that no warning light whatsoever should appear at the instrument panel but yours showed up.
