Question about 1998 Volvo V70

Engine sporadically stalls

At the begining it was just the sound of a shift while the car was stopped at the trafic lights. then the car started stalling, revs lowered to 500 RPM and back to approx. 1000 RPM while the car stopped at trafic lights and, eventually, shuts down. Put it on parking, switch it on and the car is running again normal for a while. I took it to the authorized Volvo shop and the connected the car to the computer. They couldn't find anything, obviously because the sporadic ocurrence. Always occurred in "idle' mode. At high speed in the highway was normal, until now that I started feeling that the engine is lagging, like it was stuck and the engine light is on. Any idea about was going on with this engine?

Mr Delio I asume that your car is piece of sheet because mine has the same problem.
Pehaps going at low RPM the inyection system do not work propely due to the need of clean the inside car. Lets consider that at low RPM for a short time the inyection can be block out.
On the other hand may be could be a condenser that lost its energy for a while.
I f you need futher assistance just pay for it.

P0022 code also refers to camshaft (CMP) intake /left/front bank2--timing over is messed up===causes valve timing--engine mechanical fault---CMP actuator. I would re check the timing chain marks as it appears that it may be out a tooth or two. IF you have installed after market parts then the cpu may not be recognising the parameters of the part and recording a fault or trying to adjust to suit the readings which is upsetting other sensors. Check that the cat converter is not broken and blocking up the exhaust pipe

This sounds like your cooling fan is not running. If you were to stop too long with with the engine idling it would overheat the engine. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this is a very serious issue. I can have a number of causes, like bad cooling motor, bad wiring or conectors, bad relay, open fuse, etc. Please have it diagnosed and repared before it overheats the engine and possibly damages the engine. If you are stopped in trafic you can place the transmission in neutral and shut off the engine. When trafic restarts you can restart the engine and place the transmission in drive again and continue. I hope this helps.
