I had similar problem with my earlier car, Opel Vectra. The reason was a damaged cam shaft rev. speed sensor.

I also have a s60 T5 2001. I had a simialr problems and they told me I needed a new part costng $1900 odd. I did some research and discovered the sensor is prone to getting dirty. I took it to volvo they tok the part of and said its no good. I told them to only replace the gasket and clean the unit. Problem solved and has been perfect ever since. $350 for labour as it takes a while to get to the unit.

Hi, I had a similar problem. It's caused by the throttle position sensor. Your car may also go into reduced performance a.k.a. 'limp mode' after a while. Disconnect the negative terminal (-) on your battery overnight and reconnect it. It sorted out my problem.

Hi, I have a Volvo S60 T5 (auto) and the engine keeps surging for no reason - can anyone help?


Check your a/c is off. I have an 850se that had the same prob and turned out it was the a/c, it was out of gas so i didn't know i had left it on. A/C off, prob solved. If this dont work then will prob be feul supply issue. Change feul filter 1st, if this dont work then you might have to get the fuel pump pressure tested. Hope this helps.

Volvo s60 engine idles erratically


Likely the ETD is wearing. 2001- 2003 ETDs on this model have an extended warranty 10 years / 200K miles on this part by Volvo. There is a safety recall software upgrade that should be done without cost at a Volvo Dealer. This often helps a lot. (Software "fix" around a poor electro-mechcanical design.) Dealer will charge a diagnostic fee but all repairs related to the ETD should be covered parts and labor if that is problem. Check with your dealer about coverage on your specific vehicle. You should have gotten letters about the recall. Get the free safety software upgrade now!!

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


i have a 2000 s60 2.0t and got the software update due to the recall. it apparently was some kind of safety measure when a fault of some kind occurred but it nearly got someone killed while overtaking and thats why the recall happened. sounds like the same issue but i could be wrong.
