Question about 2002 Volvo S60

3 Answers

S 60 volvo Car (2002)

My problem is:

my car sputters. As long as stay on the gas it runs. when I release the gas it sputters then dies.

all of my lights on my dashboard are ON.

I took it to a mechanic. He says that his machine finds nothing wrong with it. Still the lights are on.

When I start it first thing in the morning, it starts.

After an hour or so of driving, it starts to sputter but doen't die.

It is when I kill the engine and try restarting it is when the sputtering begins. So, I only leave home and return. I do not start it until the morning....

There is a 200,000 Mile Warranty on the Electronic Throttle Control. All you need is a system upgrade at your local dealership. Once this is done, the problem will cease to exist. I have an S60 T5 (2001), which had the same problem, but after the upgrade, it's humming like a baby. Go to the dealership for this free upgrade. Good luck! Michael

I had a similar problem.
At a cold start the rpm would come up normally then slowly drop then stall out. Car would stall at lights and stop signs. My mechanic after having for 3 days found a faulty cam sensor.

My 2001 new Beetle will not stay running. It starts up, then 5-8 seconds later will sputter out and die. If I pump the gas peddle a bit after it starts, it trys to stay running longer but then sputters out...


Hi There,
Try this: You will need 2 people - Have someone Spray Starting Fluid in the throttle then start the car and have someone spray the fluid continuously into the throttle. If the car continues to run you have a fuel problem, but if it stalls out, replace the coil pak. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
