S90 Drive Cycle problems
Mizclark06 writes in the MVS Volvo Forum about the exception her Volvo S90 got from emissions testing:
“My S90 drive cycle could not be completed. I tried for more than 2 months with over 2000 miles logged. I thought this would cost me hundreds to get fixed, but took a chance & ran it through the emissions station in Mesa AZ.
Failed! I talked to the supervisor and after some discussion she said ‘Oh this is a Volvo!’
She then leafed through a loose leaf binder and informed me, ‘All 1996-’98 Volvos may have difficulty completing the drive cycle and will be unable to be tested.’
She then asked me to pay a second $27.50 (since I had gone beyond the 60 free retest time frame) and told me to pull into the 4th bay.
Once there, they scanned my door label and then gave me a passing certificate. No additional testing was done.”
