2001 volvo s60 surging problem

It is possible that a turbocharger can do that. You need to have the defect present when the car is hooked up to Diagnostic tester. Most of the places which do FREE tests want you to have a "Check" engine light on or they will not test it for you.

But there are more sensitive scanners, with more diagnostics in them and they are attached to your vehicle and the car is driven with the gauges attached, to try to record the defect. These are fairly expensive machines and most Dealers have them.

What I suggest is that "surging" can cause you to have an accident, just as having your engine cut-out in Traffic can get you hit by other cars. You can try to get a free scan at Autozone, Oreilys, and Advance autoparts.

You can go to a Dealer if the autoparts stores can not help you. But interview them and ask about any devices they may have like I described. Ask how they would test your vehicle in motion. Tell them that the other scanners had to have the car parked and the tests fail to show anything. See what they suggest and what they would do for you.

Hi, I have a Volvo S60 T5 (auto) and the engine keeps surging for no reason - can anyone help?

Check your a/c is off. I have an 850se that had the same prob and turned out it was the a/c, it was out of gas so i didn't know i had left it on. A/C off, prob solved. If this dont work then will prob be feul supply issue. Change feul filter 1st, if this dont work then you might have to get the fuel pump pressure tested. Hope this helps.

S60 Auto my problem is the engine surges when at idle

Hi, I had a similar problem. It's caused by the throttle position sensor. Your car may also go into reduced performance a.k.a. 'limp mode' after a while. Disconnect the negative terminal (-) on your battery overnight and reconnect it. It sorted out my problem.

98 chev 5.7 #3and#6 clys are missing at ilde to about 2500 rpm

I would test for a leaking intake manifold gasket. WITH A WATER SPRAYER , and the engine running at operating temps and at idle, spray some water where the intake meets the cylinder head. If you hear a little SUCKING SOUND, and the engine smooths out temporarily, thats it Hope this helps

2001 volvo s60 t5 - performance reduced warning message, limp mode activated

i have a 2000 s60 2.0t and got the software update due to the recall. it apparently was some kind of safety measure when a fault of some kind occurred but it nearly got someone killed while overtaking and thats why the recall happened. sounds like the same issue but i could be wrong.
