Customer Question

Hello, I have a 2000 S80 T6 with an intermittent (although getting worse) performance problem. From a cold start the performance is very good although for the first few seconds it is not particularly smooth. When warming up the performance is normal but as the vehicle reaches its operating temperature the performance appears to drop considerably, almost as if there is no boost from the turbos. This appears worse if the vehicle is sat in traffic for a while so i'm wondering if it is heat related. It has however had a fair few items replaced recently to try to fix this and a similar problem. All of these items have been carried out by an authorised volvo service centre.

Hello. I have yet to receive any answers I'm afraid. I was assuming maybe people didn't do this as much at the weekend so was hoping things would get started tomorrow.

checking codes without scanner on p2 volvos
if u want to know if there is any codes stored in any module on your p2 Volvo follow these steps
1. turn on car and close doors and clear info display of any messages by pressing read button
2. with ur foot on the brake pedal hold down the read button and hit the rear fog lamp button twice.
now your car info display will read checking dtcs in vehicle and you can scroll through each module by hitting the read button until u go through every module. this method will only tell you if there is a code stored and will not give you a specific code.
