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

I had exactly the same problem on my UK 2001 S60.
It was caused by the throttle control housing gaskets not being serviced properly and consequently the entire housing had to be replaced - not a cheap job -and a valuable lesson learned - use a reputable volvo specialist to service your volvo - I didn't and I learnt the hard why! only a volvo specilaist would have known about this I went to several other main street garages & none of them could even diagnose the problem let alone fix it. Although they did do numerous other things first before they gave up - ie replaced titanium spark plugs.
Before it stoppped running altogther and went into "limp home mode" there were tell-tale engine/throttle surges when the car was idle, but in gear.
It is now running "like new" & I will never get another garage to service it, as this could have been avoided - however they can also wear out after about 10years - so my bad services just made it happen sooner!
I hope this helps!

Have you checked for vacuum leaks? Poor idling when cold that gets better when the engine warms up, or at higher RPMs are symptoms of vacuum leaks. Check all hoses and connectors. If it's a manifold gasket, you will want to use a smoke machine (check when the engine is cold).

Hi my renault megane scenic has the engine light on and it is shaking it was plugged into a diagnostic tester and it came up with an anti pollution fault any ideas


Hi i think the problem is one of the coils ( very common on renaults ).
The shaking is the engine missfiring.
Because of the missfiring the emissions are not correct which brings on the engine light.
If you are able to get a diagnosis ( code reader ) done on the car it will tell you which coil is gone
I hope i have been of some help to you

2000 Toyota Camry When the engine is cold and the car is started, the car engine usually vibrates ans shakes. I changed the plug and the problem stopped, but after a few weeks the problem started again. ...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Looks like that you have a bad O2 sensor. If the O2 sensor is faulty the car may shake and there's noticeable bad emission odor. I strongly suggest that you have it replaced. You can find this sensor on the exhaust manifold.

Do you have an erratic idle? If you do then the MAF sensor must be replaced as well. A bad idle can cause the vehicle to shake. Keep me posted regarding the progress.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a mazda protege 2003 and my car stinks like rotten eggs when i put on the gas and on top of that, my engine light is blinking and my car shakes when i stop at a red light!


i have a 2003 mazda protege. this is the third time my check engine light has come on. the first time the car started to shake when i stopped at a light and the check engine light came on. i had a readout done and it said misfire. i took it to a garage and they changed my spark plugs and wires. 2 weeks later it came on again and my car started to shake whenever i stopped. readout said misfire. they fixed the coils. it has been 2 weeks since then and my car started shaking again whenever i stop and the light came on. what could possibly be wrong with it?

When is running start to shake like if going to start off and the check engine light start to blink but all stop and the car continue run without problem


a blinking check engine light indicates a missfire in one or more engine cylinders, have a trouble code test run to determine which cylinder(s) is missfiring.

Emission light is on, service light is on, missfire,


all that has nothing to do with this lights being on, you have a malfunction in the electronic engine controls, to find out what it is have the dealer test the system for trouble codes which are stored in the memeory of the cars computer whenever this light(s) comes on.
