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

No should bleed automatically but you may need to turn the ignition on and off a few times to help it flood the system properly before you try to start the vehicle.

Engine Service Required

Looks like an automatic tansmission that won't shift out of first gear... You need to pull the OBDII transmission codes to find out why. If it's engine rpm realted, again the engine codes will tell you where to look. You can buy a cheap OBDII code reader or get a read-out at your local garage for just a few bucks.

How do you remove headlight unit on volvo v70 2002

Hedadlight removel Volvo V70 2002

Yes the full front bumper has to be removed. Not as bad as it sounds just take your time. One fixing screw in each wheel arch, two bolts behind black bumper trim each side of no. plate, and five or six plastic
plugs on slam panel. Remember to unplug fog lights if fitted. The lamp unit can then be removed secured by thee bolts two on slam panel and one on the inner side of the lamp near the radiator and a clip on the outer side, obvious when you take a good look and dont try to rush.
I hope this will help anyone else.

Looking for the low Pressure switch on a 2003 V70 Volvo

Not a hundred percent sure but look under the upper radiator hose on the driver side, about midway of the back of the engine block.

Hope this helps.

Emission systems light has come on - book says take to volvo - car driving ok. ITs the light that looks like an engine block with a propellor on it - any ideas or help for a single mum much appreciated

It is the check engine light. The car will have to be brought to any mechanic who can put a code reader on it and pinpoint exact problem. The light came on probably due to faulty sensor. Mabey Oxygen sensor if it is the emission system
