Question about 1998 Volvo S70
Volvo 98 S70 randomly stalls when stopped. RPM's jump up prior to stalling, then drop to 0 (at which point it stalls). Recently I've noticed a strong gasoline smell before the RPMs jump, but this is something that is new and I'm not sure if it's related or not.
I have 160k on the car, but the stalling just begun in Spring.
Code P0167 pops up sometimes (only when the Check Engine light comes on pre-stall, otherwise there is no code).
It used to happen after the engine was warm and was turned off and on quickly (the diagnosis "Vapor Lock" made sense then) - now happens on my 10 minute drive to work. I'd like to be able to drive without worry for once!
Multiple mechanics aren't sure what the problem is...
Any suggestions or ideas? I'm quite desperate as I love my car and don't want to get a new one. :(
Does this model have an ETS on it? Electronic throttle system. I could need a new throttle body. Sometimes the software goes bad and it will give the symptoms you described.
