Question about 1998 Volvo V70
My V70 has a light that has just come on. It looks like engine block with propeller on the back. Book says Emmission systems fault - take to volvo. Anyone know what could cause this - car driving fine please help!!
This is probably a faulty Throttle Position Sensor - I had exactly the same problem.
Vovlo specialist hooked my ODBII to a code reader.
Best to get the throttle body cleaned at the same time they replace the TPS
All in £125 plus the dreaded VAT.
Hope this helps

The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.
When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.
