Engine surging no warning lights

2004 volvo xc90 started stalling and surging a few days ago but no warning lights. actually cut off one time after removing the fuel cap while car was running. ran like **** after that for the rest of the day. cranked it again today, ran ok but with slight surging on acceleration for a few miles then **** again. maf or etm and can i do this myself. this is the biggest piece of junk i have ever owned. a $6000.00 transmission and $300.00 headlights are just the start. volvo has the safest cars on the road because their all on the side of the road

Same problem. It runs worse with the air conditioning running, still doesn't fix it though. Also, Volvo will tell you the transmission is "sealed" but if you take it to a transmission place they can clean it out.

It could be a intake leak or low fuel pressure.

Will my 2004 volvo xc90 have a message indicator when timing belt is bad?


I seriously doubt the code was for the belt. It could have been for something the belt drives. If you can find out what the code was we can advise.
And no the computer will not set a code for the timing belt. Most companies recommend replacing the timing belt at 60,000 to 80,000 miles.

Check Engine Light with Code P0072 on 2004 Volvo XC90


Grounding issue "Circuit low" = ground wire problem or another system on the same circuit using too much current.

Check all wiring issues and then correct the issue to have the code go away :)
