Re: MY 01 has a stumble (zzrguy)

i'm not sure i know what your problem is but just for an idea, you might also want to clean the throttle valve while you're at it... i had mine cleaned at 51k miles and it was obvious it hadn't been cleaned before till then. i could clearly feel the difference both idle and during acceleration. the car now runs more smoothly. <br>also before, i had a rover 620Ti before which always stumbled when a/c was on and it took me a while to discover that the throttle valve had literally piles of dirt on it. i cleaned it and the stumbling went away...

It could be a lot of things: Fuel rail pressure sensor, maybe throttle body, oxygen sensor... Better to go and have the codes read first.

MAF sensor.<br>Boost control valve (although that wouldn't do this at idle).<br>Failing or just dirty ETM (throttle body), warranteed for 10 yrs. 200K miles).<br>The cleaning is your responsibility. <br>Have you had the recall (free) Volvo ETM upgrade?<br>Probably one of those

Re: MY 01 has a stumble (JRL)

JRL had it right. <br>Until you clean the TB out, and have the Throttle recall software intalled, then don't judge the car yet.<p>Plugs are a half hour job on this vehicle. <p>Seafoam through the vacuum lines. <p>Put in half can in the fuel.<p>change air filter. Fuel filter.<p>All the above will cost you $40 if you DIY. And car will idle much better.

Did you take it to Hassel Volvo in Huntington?<p>Go to pepboys in Dix Hills, they should reset the light for $20.
