Having problems with your 1998 Volvo V70 ?

Engine sporadically stalls

\015 At the begining it was just the sound of a shift while the car was stopped at the trafic lights. then the car started stalling, revs lowered to 500 RPM and back to approx. 1000 RPM while the car stopped at trafic lights and, eventually, shuts down. Put it on parking, switch it on and the car is running again normal for a while. I took it to the authorized Volvo shop and the connected the car to the computer. They couldn't find anything, obviously because the sporadic ocurrence. Always occurred in "idle' mode. At high speed in the highway was normal, until now that I started feeling that the engine is lagging, like it was stuck and the engine light is on. Any idea about was going on with this engine?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Mr Delio I asume that your car is piece of sheet because mine has the same problem.
\015\012Pehaps going at low RPM the inyection system do not work propely due to the need of clean the inside car. Lets consider that at low RPM for a short time the inyection can be block out.
\015\012 On the other hand may be could be a condenser that lost its energy for a while.

Engine stalls 1994 Dodge Ram 2500, Cummings engine, 156,000 miles, fuel and air filters clean. Engine runs normal until well warmed up after several miles of driving...then begins to run rough...and then quits as if starved for fuel. Engine restarts easily after stalling and can be driven at slower speeds. This problem is sporadic and has occurred in both cool and warm weather. Have been using cetane booster additive in fuel.


Sounds like one of a couple things could be causing you problems first would be the fuel pump may be wearing out. these are a mechanical pump and should be producing over 35psi at the injection pump if you have a way to put a gauge on it you could ch ... 1994 Dodge Ram 2500

Does that 94 have the two fuel pumps on it? If it has the fuel pump on the side of the block and the high-pressure fuel pump on the top, I could almost bet that the one on the block has a check valve going out. Seen I guy spend $700.00 on a new ... 1994 Dodge Ram 2500

2000 Maxima GLE engine has trouble maintaining idle in cold temperatures 40 F and below and has been close to stalling. If engine is not warmed up, when shifting into drive, I sporadically feel little power until engine has warmed up. Also can hear a hissing sound from under the hood as I accelerate. Noticed this problem at the end of winter '08 but went away once weather warmed up. I was told this could be an O2 sensor but I'm looking at all possibilities. Thank you Ken S.

The service engine light has come on in my 1991 Buick Le Sabre. After driving it awhile it has that sweet smell that comes from overheating, but very faint. It is running fairly rough, and stalls sporadically, especially when switching gears, most commonly reverse. It's an automatic, and I am pretty sure it's carburated. How can I pull the code on it? Any suggestions as to what the problem might be?

1990 Olds silhouette at highway speeds engine stalls. shift to nuetral, wait for engine rotation to stop. restart and shift back to drive. engine runs normally for 1/2 to 2 miles then stalls again. When engine stalls there is a minor backfire sound after the stall has started. By stall I mean the engine quits. all instrument cluster indications remain normal.

Car started and idle, when I would press on gas pedel the engine would stall. Let up on gas and engine would idle, but it sounded like it was running on 3 or 4 cylinders. Pressed on gas again engine would stall again and let up on gas the engine would idle roughly, when I let it idle the engine reduced in RPMs and then stopped. It would not start again. So I left the car for about hour, tried to start it and it started right up. It had a rough idle pressed on the gas the engine stalled I let up

While I was driving my 1996 Toyota Camry on a highway, it made a loud clanking kind of noise and then the engine stalled. I'm pretty sure that the engine was out of engine oil. But when the car stalled we pulled over and started the car back on without having too many issues and then drove it to our destination, which was about 2 miles from where it stalled. When we reached our destination, we got out and opened the hood and heard lots of clanking as if the pistons inside the engine broke from n


Radiators don't usually make those kind of noises unless the fan blades contact it, or it explodes. Look under the radiator cap and see if you see coolant. If you see any kind of fluid, I doubt it's the radiator. Next, check your engine oil level. Is ... 1996 Toyota Camry

After the engine has warmed up, it stalls and won't start until engine cools sufficiently. Engine temp gauge within normal range. Prior to stalling, engine will not exceed 4000RPM. Increasing engine RPMs in PARK or NEUTRAL upto 4000rpm appears normal and smooth. Trying to increase beyond 4000, however, the engine speed kicks abrubtly downward to about 3700rmp then increases back to 4000 and the problem repeats. If constant pressure is maintained, the engine continues to buck dropping to 3700, t

I have a 1998 Chevy Lumina with the 3.8 liter engine, 197000 miles. The engine cranks up and runs fine until the engine warms up, then it stalls out and will not run. The engine will fire back up, but will not remain running. I have replaced the fuel pressure regulator. When the ignition is first turned on, the system charges to 50 psi and holds. When the engine is cold the pressure drops to 42 psi at start up for about 3 minutes then increases to 50 psi and stalls. Once the engine is warm and r

Check and clean the idle control solenoid and passages, check the throttle position sensor and perhaps the crank sensor. Don't buy anything without testing or you will be spending money on stuff you don't need.If stumped, get a chiltons or hayn ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

95 Buick Lesabre, stalling and idle problems either too low,(stalling) or too high. Recently replaced TPS, fuel pump, strainer and filter. Runs great when check engine light is on but stalls or goes to very high idle when check engine light is off. Cruise control only works when check engine light is off but that's when I have the problems. Also, cannot read codes as you get an error when scanner is hooked up. Tried 2 different scanners. Any ideas?


Hi, have you checked the idle air control valve? It's right next to the TPS. Take it out and check the passages for blockage/dirt/gunk. There are some tests you can run on it. Sounds like it may be intermittent. On the OBD connector--are you usi ... Buick LeSabre

I just bought a used Ram about a month ago and we had to drop a new engine in it because it stalled everytime i hit the gas and then let off and two cylinders werent hitting. It has the 5.9L V8. However, even after we put the new engine in im experiencing the same stalling problems. If i rev it to 3000 RPMS or so and then let off quickly, it will just stall out like the key was taken out. Since we had the throttle body from the old engine on the newer one we picked up, we switched it out so that

Last week, when I started my '89 Dodge Dakota, I saw that the "check engine" light was on. I put the transmission shift in "drive" and notice that the engine ran "rough" and I drove away. When I stopped at a "stop" sign, the engine stalled. When I approached the next stop sign, I put the transmission in "neutral" and the engine did not stall. I failed to mention, that while driving, I noticed that there was a sever decrease in engine power. I went to an auto supply store and bought the following


First thing i would check before getting in too deep is the fuel filter. If that's not it then check the fuel pump. Main thing is to make sure there is no shortage of gas to the engine. had the same problem out of my 89 dakota a few years back and tu ... 1989 Dodge Dakota 2WD

Engine stalls Engine runs fine...........but 2-3 times per day, I will slow down for a stop and engine stalls and quits. It will idle around 700-800 rpm's normally and I can almost tell when it's going to happen. It will drop to 500 rpm, then shut off. I put trans in nuetral, turn engine back on and it's fine again for another few hours. Does not matter if it's cold or hot. Does not miss. Recently had engine injector flush plus have been running a high grade injector cleaner/ water remover. All

I am having an issue with engine stalls from my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, this has been happening quite frequently, in slow traffic and on the highway. Sometimes when I accelerate it seems to stumble, in order to prevent it from stalling I would quickly slip it into neutral on the fly and pump the accelerator pedal until the engine smooths out. I replaced the ignition coil; distributor cap and rotor and also the spark plug cables. Check engine codes at the time were 0351 and 1494. Engin
