Re: s70 glt 4K Rev limit (in drive) and Stalling after warm (Kenzo)

You have a 2000, ETM is warranted for 10 years/200k miles. Take it in to the dealer.

I had a similar set of symptoms, turned out to be a split piece of plastic tubing feeding the fuel pump in the gas tank. Motor would die about 4k cuz it was starved for fuel.

I read this post and it cracked me up as I haven't gone anywhere near 4 grand with this car in the six months that I owned it. I might as well have a 4k rev limit, lol. What do you have to do to get it to approach 4k in drive? <p>Have you done all of the stage "0" items like fuel filter, plugs, air cleaner, etc.? If this hasn't been done yet I would start there.
