1999 S70 RPM's hitting 3000 upon starting engine

Post by FransVolvo »

My RPM's are 3000 upon either putting in park or starting the engine. Shifting into gear rpms drop down to 1000 rpms.
What's happening? Why?

Apart from a massive air leak you may want to look into the electronic throttle which controls airflow to the engine.

Is this a non turbo ?
