I would have the code scanned but it is acting like a failing cam sensor... typical problem for those cars and very easy to replace.

Check engine light suddenly came on. Car has been running well. What coul dbe the problem. This is a 99 V70 Volvo wagon with 160,000 miles on it. I bought it 2 months ago and trustworthy mechanics told me...


The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.

When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.

Service Stabilitrak-Reduced Engine Power


the engine light is a generic fault indicator in your car to point out something is not quite right with the engine, having a loss of power as well is also known in some areas as Limp Mode or Safety Mode. it means the car is restricting the power it gives to ensure no damage it done to the engine.

the only certain way to find out what is wrong is to take it to a garage that has diagnostics equipment that can read the fault codes from the vechicles ECU (the fault codes will be the reason the light on the dash has come on as its reporting a fault somewhere)..

your mechanic should be able to tell you what is wrong with the engine from that and give you a more accurate cost at fixing it.

Speeds of 60 or above my car feels wobbly.sometimes my throttle cable (?) gets stuck so my car will be at a stop but the engine is still accelerating and lately it's sounds kind of like it puttering w


normally your engine should not cause your car to wobble, however a misfire can cause this to happen, as far as your throttle cable, you need to replace it and check the transmission kick down cable (co located with throttle cable) replace if necessary. The jerking when shifting is probably due to incorrectly adjusted kick down cable, when adjusted correctly the transmission with shift smooth. Hope this helps, let me know

Tension i think thats what it is the little black box next to th


Hi my name is Allen!

Here is how to check your tensioner, with the engine not running, grab the belt and pull on it very hard, you will feel it move toward you let it go and if it return to it original position and you pull on it slightly and it feels tight your tensioner is OK. If the belt it floppy then you need a tensioner.

As for the noise it could be anyone of the pulleys on the front of your engine. You can try to see if they wobble by hand with engine not running, just grab one pulley at a time and see if any of them wobble. If you find one wobbling that part will need to be replaced, not the pulley, but the part behind the pulley.

Let me know what you find?

Wobbling of car while accelerating


the u joints in the drive shaft. (CV joints on front wheel drive) more strss on the joints when accelerating so they cause the vibration. no stress/load smooth run. Replace the joints and you'll feel a big difference.
