I just got word from Volvo and they had to replace my TCV, I hope that's the extent, I'll let ya'll know if that was the fix for my surging under heavy load (stomping on it).<p>I can't wait to feel the full power of the T6!<p>Later,<br>BigSection

Re: (Copeland)

Yep, glad to be the newbie! <p>I'm in love with this car, it's just a joy to drive. Especially with the TCV fixed!<p>I'll keep search for more mods, but it looks like my next step is "Stage 0" and then follow Skywriters lead on some of his mods.<p>Take it easy! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (bigsection)

How much did that repair cost? What were the exact symptoms? Just surging under heavy load? Anything else? My car may be suffering from the same problem.<p><br>TIA,<br>Luke

Re: (luke8302)

The repair ended up being about $180 at a volvo dealer. <p>Car would seemingly drive normal to my grandma, who just eases into everything.<p>However, when I step on it, the car will seem to only use the lowend turbo and then hold at a certain RPM stopping by progress but not dropping either.<p>So, that was all I experienced and it was just when I wanted to kick it in the pants.<p>Good Luck,<br>Marc <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

i read a suggestion in a similar thread about cleaning the valve with carb cleaner. has anyone tried this? any results? my car has a similar problem and i'd kinda wanna try that first.<p>then again, i think i still have warranty. i need to check and see if that would be covered. it might be better to get a new valve just because i can.

Re: (bschumacher)

Hi<p>I have the same problem with my 2001 V70 2.4T.<br>My mechanic cleaned up the TC Valve last week and the problem is still present. A little less obvious but still there.<p>So I guess a change of TC Valvel is required.<p>Now that I know what it is, I could probably change the part myself... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>***<br>Change the part over the weekend.<br>Definitely fixed the issue with irregular turbo boost.<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><BR><BR>
