2000 S70 Idle Issue

Post by franzium » Wed Apr 10, 2019 5:47 pm

My car is having an issue when stopped, shift lever is in "D" and foot on the brake, where it has this drop in the idle by only 100 RPMs (900 to 800 then back to 900) for only a split second. And it only happens every 10-15 seconds when stopped as I described. It doesn't happen in "P" or "N" and zero problems with acceleration. Anyone have any ideas what would cause that issue only when the car is stopped, foot on the brake and car in "D"?

Have you tried taking it out of gear into neutral and coming to a full stop to see if the idle behaves the same?
