SOURCE: Volvo S60 sensor ?

Sounds like an oxygen sensor (there are two). I had a recent problem where I had a rough idle and my S60 continued to stall out. Turned out to be the rear oxygen sensor. After replacement, car idles nicely and car drives normally.

Check engine light car feels like its in high gear


The problem is most likely a PNP(shift position switch) problem. When this happens, the trans goes into limp home mode. The trans goes into high gear and doesn't allow any shifting up or down. This is to protect the trans.

2006 Malibu Maxx ss hard shifting/Check engine light


There is no dip stick. Its most likely not the fluid. These malibu's use the first generation GM LAN system. Check the data cord comming from the transmission near the mechanical shifting linkage. Alot of these shifting issues and errors are from a break in the wiring causing bad data to be sent/rvcd to/from the computer control module- these cars are electronically controled shifted, not mechanical.
