My 2005 volvo xc90 is losing power during acceleration. the effect is momentary and I thought it was gas so I used additives. Now the engine light is on and the problem is more general. Any ideas? gas...


I had the same problem and the dealer told me it was one of the coil-over-sparkplug went bad and was causing intermittent misfires at certain RPM's (same as yours). I ordered a new coil for $200 or so then pulled each one out to test them one by one (Volvo won't tell you which one so they can do the work). In the process of doing this I found one of my OEM spark plugs (#5) had a crack on the ceramic insulation. So instead of changing the coil, I changed the plugs and it worked fine. It's been over 6 months I believe and I just had it smogged for registration, so I think it's fixed. I also read that the throttle body electronics on this model is a lemon and sometimes created the exact same symptoms. This is the cheapest way to start, and if you are lucky like me, you're done. If it is the coil, you can get a good aftermarket version on Amazon for less than $100 usd. Good luck. Volvo's are finicky people.... I mean vehicles.

Where are the spark plugs located/


This car uses coil over plug system,the sparkplugs are located under the coils, each cylinder has its own coil, remove one coil at a time,remove the bolts holding coil,disconnect connector and pull coil up,take note ,there a spacer under the coil where the bolts go, make sure not to loose them when removing coil or bolts,after you remove coil then inside the hole is the sparkplug, do this with all cylinders, hope this helps.

Car won't start, new battery, starter ok, just won't kick over Saturn 2004, 80,000 miles, oil change 2 months ago,


If the starter/Battery are ok.Check for spark by pulling off a sparkplug wire,have someone try to start hold wire near sparkplug tip you'll hear the spark jump to the plug tick..tick..tick..sound.Be carefull to hold wire just far enough to hear spark,also this is the secondary circuit from the coil it's high voltage wear a glove.If you smell gas youre geting gas if no spark it is 1 of the following.Bad Coil, or ignition modulator, crack in distributer, cracked wires that cause spark to not reach plugs.Good Luck.

Replacing spark plugs in a 2002 chevy tahoe


EACH ONE OF THE SPARK PLUGS IS LOCATED UNDER INDIVIDUAL COILS. YOU MUST FIRST REMOVE THE BOLT ON TOP OF THE COIL AND GENTLY TWIST AND PULL UP ON THE COIL WITHOUT RIPPING THE BOOT. UNPLUGGING THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR IS NECESSARY ON MOST MODELS. SOME OF THE NEWER MOTORS HAVE A COVER ON THE TOP OF THE ENGINE THAT HIDES THE COILS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. BEST OF LUCK
