Hi i recently baught i second hand volvo v50 1.8 litre petrol

Customer Question

Hi i recently baught i second hand volvo v50 1.8 litre petrol from a second hand dealer
2006 model. Just after i purchased the car i filled up the car
and noticed the emissions light came on. I took it to a garage near
me for a diagnostic test which indicated throttle control on the print out.
went back to have a fix they told me they have to run diagnostic again which did not show any code.
Phoned the car dealer to say light still burning and noticed excessive petrol use. They recommended to take the car to their garage. they diagnosed an issue with some valve and needed to get part from volvo. Picked up car on friday and yesterday yellow emissions light came on again. Still got week left under dealer insurance and took out 6 month additional warranty. Very frustrated by now. Not sure what to do?
