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.

04 saturn L300 acceleration dies

run the fault codes first to check for faulty sensors
what you describe indicates a problem in the exhaust in that when the exhaust gas volume reaches a certain level the sensors are reporting it and the ECM is not able to fix it
have an accredited exhaust shop check the cat converter
for failure and partially blocking the exhaust at speed
if it was a fuel pump you would run into problems long before the speed at which it occurs
AT best it could be an EVAP problem with the vent not working properly but I think that it is exhaust related

Sounds like you need a fuel pump. There is an access panel in the floor of the car to get to the pump.
