Well, you've probably noticed by now that things look a little different around here. You are a keen observer!

The whole site is new and that includes all of the software that drives this forum. With probably over 10,000 settings and hundreds of back-end programs trying to talk to one another, there are bound to be a few glitches that we haven't discovered yet. So, if you happen to stumble upon anything that just doesn't seem right, give us a shout and we'll try to sort it out.

Thanks for using the VCOA Forum and enjoy the new look!

:unsure:
2004 Volvo S60 2.5T AWD. Has a funny idle that has just started. No lights on the dash, but at idle the car seems to be trying to catch up to its self. The only thing that I can think of, is the engine jumped time?? Or there could be a vacuum leak?

Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Thanks
Greg

Hi Greg,

I'm not an expert on this, but have you checked the cam sensor? This monitors the cam position and they frequently fail. Could be it is just in the beginning stages of failure and that is causing the erratic idle.

Just a thought.

Not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

Could be a vacuum leak, but you might also check your coil packs. How many miles on the car? Was the timing belt done at right interval?
