Sounds like the throttle module has failed. They are notorious for failing.

SOURCE: vehicle hakes when driving 45 to 50 miles per hour

Check wheel balance,
check steering linkages for loosness - such as tie rod ends, steering rack linkages etc,
check driveline for worn/loose joints and bearings.

The fuel pump which is located in the fuel tank beneath the back seat has gotten bad. Consider replacing it.

Cheers and rate this solution.

SOURCE: Can you rebuild a window regulator on 1999 Volvo

These items are timed very well to insure that the window goes up and down smoothly. I've tried and I've been doing this over 20 years. It can be done but by the time you get it done, the frustration level and time it takes, you could already have it fixed and not worrying about the repair. buy used if cost is an issue. They work just fine and cost about 1/4 of a new. Check with local salvage yards in your area. If you're in the midwest, plan on having one shipped from the west coast. It will be cheaper and quicker than spending days looking in the immediate area.

Loses pressure when driving forward and backwards. It won't go any faster than 25 miles per hour


Sounds your catatylic converter is clogged.You will need to have the exhuast pressure tested.Or the next time you drive it for a little while stop and look under at the converter to see if its cherry red.Also put your hand behind tail pipe and feel how much pressure is coming out at idle.
