The throttle module is the culprit. The car is in the "Limping" mode. Either the module can be reset or need to be replaced. Only Authorised Volvo workshop can do it.

SOURCE: car will not drive in reverse, does not pick up speed when driving forward

TRY REPLACING THE TRANSMISSION FILTER LOCATED INSIDE THE TRANS. THE TRANS PAN MUST BE REMOVED TO ACCESS THE FILTER. A GALLON OF FLUID WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED AS WELL AFTER FILTER HAS BEEN DONE. THIS PROCEDURE WILL HELP THE OIL PUMP IN THE TRANS TO GET MORE FLUID AND HELP IT TO SHIFT GEARS. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING TOO. BEST OF LUCK.

the idle air bypass valve is making noise and resonating through the air inlet the valve needs to be replaced there is also a revised hose to the valve to reduce noise if it hasn't already been replaced

It may also be the catalytic converter. If that gets plugged up it puts a lot of back pressure on the motor. This will make it hard to get up to speed. When not pressing much on the petal it will seem to run fine. Then when you press more to increase speed you will feel it.

bad idle, and surges.
gets better, does that mean it idles at the correct regulated RPM
HOT? 800.?
and does the engine coolant hit 180 to 200 F and hold there.?
Sounds like the ISC valve is stuck open, clean it.
ISC means, idle speed controls.
also air leaks, vacuum leaks can do this on speed density, EFI.
Im not sure which EFI you have, too lazy to look that up.

which engine do you have, and what country, ?
as a mech, i open hood and look, on the net , i cant do that.
so.... no real help

1983 s10 blazer low rough idle and trys to die when starting have to give it a little gas and put it into drive real quick then when slowing down keep foot on gas pedal as i also slow down with break pedal


Could be several things, a vac leak, dirty throttle body, or faulty idle air control valve.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the throttle body thru the valve.
Usually a vac leak would speed up the engine unless it is causing the rough idle.

first will say that you have a good amount of gas in the tank.second o2 sensor does not contol idle or does the map sensor.the tps sensor and if it has a idle air motor.they can control idle other than the computer.

Air around break petal


It sounds as though the diaphragm on your vacuum assist has ruptured. This will cause a hissing sound and less brake you may also notice a change in the engine idle speed or a rough idle until the hissing stops.
