Question about 2002 Volvo S60

Open Question

2002 Volve won't go over 20-25 miles per hour, starts to "shutter" shortly after running. A "machanic not volvo" check catalytic converter 02 sensors etc and came to the conclusion an internal engine value that is building up and not releasing pressure. Engine light is on and I got codes PO455, PO507,and P2177, which he said could be a result of the problems. If he is right what do thinK repairs would cost?

Grounding issue "Circuit low" = ground wire problem or another system on the same circuit using too much current.

Check all wiring issues and then correct the issue to have the code go away :)

The fuel pump which is located in the fuel tank beneath the back seat has gotten bad. Consider replacing it.

Cheers and rate this solution.

Weell it sounds like you have the days old problem Pepole dont know how to look after there cars.
The muck you still have in the engine isent doing it any good and so you have to get rid of it all, as its in the engine block and is got to go ,,so drain a little of water out and put in 1/2 a cup of washing up liquid in the radiator and start the engine and let it get hot and take the reves up to 1000 rpm now and then to keep the water going around the system, after about 1/4 hr turn off,,stand for 10 minutes ,,and then remove the cap slowly and then take off the Bottom hose and let all water out also take off Top hose at the engine end and put the house water hose in the top and turn it on till all water comes out clean. Then put hose up into the bottom hose and do the same again ,and the same in top again.Now with a clean engine you can do the same to the new Radiator and wash out all gunk .then check the thermostat and make sure its 100% (any doubt through it out) and take note how it comes out so you can fit a new one the same way,
Now refit both hoses and fill with coolant or antifreeze and TURN on the heater to hot before starting as you also have to get out the air from heater when it was drained and you will trap the air which might cause you code problems..
But now try service light reset
1,,Turn Ignition to Number 1position.
2,,Press and hold "day counter"reset button and turn
ignition to II(second) position,hold down for about 12 seconds.
3,,Afterservice light flashes,release button,there should be 2 beeps confirming reset was successful.
Let me know how you get on .. Ron

I have a 2002 mercury cougar that will only run 60 miles per hour floored It is only getting 10 miles to the gallon and has a bad miss Have done plugs and wires thinking it might be the catalytic converter...


You could be right about the catalytic converter but I would check your air cleaner first and if it's plugged or dirty replace it you may also have a vaccuum leak

Can a bad catalytic converter cause the ignition coils to go bad


A bad catalytic converter can cause your vehicle to run rough and even seem to stall and hesitate around 40 to 50 miles per hour, this will feel like a ignition problem, the simplest way I found to check a cat is with a cheap infrared or temperature probe, check Amazon or Ebay, they are inexpensive enough, you don't need great accuracy , nothing expensive. The tempeture of the cat after the engine is hot will be approximately 30-40 degrees hotter on the output of the catalytic converter than the input, also the exhaust will have an odor of rotten eggs.

2003galant. Starts fine but then will only go four miles per hour.


check full pressure @ fuel rail . check fuel filter or even fuel pump may be bad............one other thing you can do is to disconnect exhaust pipe from the catalytic converter and drive car. CAT could be clogged

1999 Dodge Ram won't go faster than 20 mile per hour. Hardly any air flow from tailpipe. Thinking a clogged catalytic converter?


If the catalytic converter has been inoperative for a long time there could have been soot or even creosote deposits in the muffler and they could have clogged even it. So first disconnect the muffler and see how the truck behaves.

Kia runs great but the 422 code keeps coming on can the o2 sensor be bad even if the thing runs great


Code P0422 deals with the catalytic converter. The pollution control / emissions system compares the oxygen sensor reading from the front of the converter, then compared it to the reading for the rear oxygen sensor and thus measures the health of the catalytic converter. Perhaps the sensor is starting to go, but likely it just means that your catalytic converter has to be replaced for proper engine function and to minimize the bad emissions from the tailpipe.
Catalytic converters are often welded right into the tail pipe system and requires a welder and the knowledge of how use it. Likely a muffler shop or your local mechanic can replace the catalytic converter.
You will not seriously harm your motor by running it with this condition for a short period of time, but you should deal with the issue before too long.
