Question about 2001 Volvo S80

1 Answer

I have a 2001 S80 Volvo. Randomly my car will just "cut out" and I can no longer accelerate. RPM maxs at about 1500 when this happens. I then pull over, turn the car off, wait and minute, start the car again, and it is fine until the next time it occurs. Could be right away, or might not happen for the rest of the day. Anybody have any insight into this problem?

Hi, I had a similar problem with my 1999 T6. It usually happened after a 2 hr run. Usually it would not go higher than 1000rpm until it cleared itself or I switched off and strated again. A dealer put a computer diagnostic on an recommended a mixture sensor to be replaced. Before I got to book that in I tried switching to only 98 Octane Fuel and I haven't had a problem since.

2001 s80....when taking your foot off the accelerator at low speeds, the car will shut down


Have your idle air control valve checked. It seems as it is not allowing enough air thru when at low speeds or idle which is why your engine is stalling. Check your throttle position sensor as well. IF those are ok, have your throttle body and plate cleaned out with a carbeutor spray cleaner
