Well I have got a way with cleaning some and they worked perfectly so it could be worth a try.
Use a can of spray brake cleaner and be very careful when you spray it onto the thin element inside the meter.
Don't wipe it out , just let it run out and dry by its self as this cleaner will evaporate quickly. Make sure there are naked flames or sparks and perform this clean in a well vented area.

I was told the air mass meter needed replacing as


the fault needs to be cleared and a short drive to adapt the throttle but if your engine management light was on i used to work for volvo as a technician(master) this is usually caused by the throttle which would honestly need to be done by someone at a dealer or with the equipment to download software to the throttle the throttle needs cleaned and there is a software update from volvo the crankcase vent willneed cleaned allthe way fron the vent box to the intake then you should have an engine flush and use syntheti oil this prevents the same issue with the throttle returning

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.

2005 Volvo S40 T5 is losing power while driving then suddenly regaining power. This happens over and over again.


had this problem as well.. check the oxygen sensor on it (sometimes critters like that wire) or like shel said dirty injectors or filters could be it.. bad gas is also another one... dont go to places with old tanks or that is really cheap, run at least 91

Air filter oil damage to volvo air mass meter


It can if too much is used or you do not allow it to soak into the filter long enough. You can easily clean it from the mass air flow sensor with CRC, part number 5110.

should be a little single wire connected to the air filter box. located on the clean side of the air filter. if not it will be between the air filter box and the throttle plate usually located on the air duct hose going from the air filter box to the throttle plate.

Restricted performance under load


I had the same problem on my 1998 XJ8. My dealer told me it was the Mass Airflow Meter, which needed replacing to the tune of around $500. After a second opinion at my local Jag mechanic, it turned out to be a hose that was broken on the lower part of the front of the engine. Check the vacuum hoses for breaks or loose fittings.
