Re: Reduced engine performance

Three years later .. WHAT was the problem ? I have VERY SERIOUS reduced engine performance AND, the radiator fan seems NOT to work when it should , in my opinion .. The temperature gage stays on top dead center when the engine is fully warmed ... .. WHAT is meant by "e box" ? Do the two computers ha...

Re: reduced engine performance 08 S40

EXCELLANT posts here, prbent . I do not think the problem is in the ETM .. BUT, who I to know .. The '1996 Saab 900 never had these problems as they used a previous (old) throttle body .. The newer ones, 1999 or 2000 were troublesome. Also, as I recall, the ETM could be removed and shipped out for r...

Re: 02 V70XC - Crank but no start, "engine performance reduced"

The "NO REPLY" problem , again ..Can't ANYONE do ANYTHING correctly ? A broad stroke, includes Volvo and our government ! This start up problem reminds me of the carburetor and choke days OR the days of the '79 Saab 900 with the malfunctioning fifth injector(cold start) ..

Re: Reduced Engine Performance only in the Winter at Code Start

Three years later, any trueful or correct solution ? Or, did you give up, as I have and just get rid of the entire problem ? It MAY have been a sticking throttle, lets hope so... and lets hope that my fingers can still function at twenty below zero(wind chill factor). On the codes, I think ''Bob is ...

Reduced Engine Performance

We (Volvo and I) are suffering from ''reduced engine performance'' , sporadically. Once in a lifetime is enough! The ONE thing she does not do is stall. The power drops suddenly from 100% to about 10% - extremely dangerous, needless to say.. This occurs at highway speed, this time, going up a slight...

Re: 2003 S60 AWD Overheating, fan a no go and stalling

CEM Andean control is what - in English, please ? The MAF CAN be replaced as a separate item - which is what I am doing , as it is impossible to remove the housing from the plastic hose - they have been coupled for 16 years ! Fortunately, Rock Auto Parts sent new screws and a GOOD new Torx T25 .The ...
