S60 5-cyl

  • 105,000 miles


Vehicle has stalled without any warning several times while traveling at highway speeds (60 mph). First incident occurred during the summer of 2011 at 105,000 miles. A second, similar incident occurred in the fall of 2011 at 108,000 miles. Auto scandia in herndon, va, replaced mass air flow meter in an attempt to address the problem. The vehicle performed well for several months without incident. Unfortunately it stalled again in March 2012. This was also without any warning while traveling at highway speeds (60 mph). The unusual highway breakdown was very dangerous.

Intermittent sudden loss of power at freeway speeds and in town.. very dangerous !!! fuel pressure switch part no. 8699449 has failed. Volvo model S60 in years 2003, 2004 have been recalled for same problem. Volvo model S40 & V70 in year 2005 & 2006 have been recalled for same problem. The pressure switch with part number 8699449 is the real problem across all Volvo models and recalls should not be limited certain models only. All models with part number 8699449 fuel pressure switch should be recalled.

Without warning or other problems, the car's engine suddenly lost power at about 55 mph on the highway, message of "reduced engine performance" came on. Although the car remained turned on, pressing on the gas pedal had little to no effect on either the movement of the car or the RPM's. once the car was stopped but was still turned on, it maintained a strong "pulsing" action and sound from the engine. When put into "drive" and "reverse" gears, the car moved in "limp mode" at approximately 2 mph regardless of how much pressure was placed on the gas pedal. The car was towed to the dealership. After coasting it off the tow truck, the car started normally and responded normally when put into reverse and forward gears, but the "reduced engine performance" message remained. Dealer's service computer indicated at least 10 error codes, most pertaining to fuel pump problems. The service computer also indicated that the initial and primary problem was with the electronic fuel pump module. The service department's inspection of this electronic part, and the staff's experience with similar problems on other Volvo's manufactured prior to 2006, indicated that the electronic fuel pump module had suffered corrosion due to its placement on the outside of the vehicle. This problem was corrected when a new electronic fuel pump module was installed inside the vehicle. This was a very costly repair. I was informed by a representative of no. America's Volvo customer care department that this defect contributed to recalls of two different Volvo models of the same year, but not the S60. The reason for omitting the S60 from the recall was not explained, but clearly it should have been included since the location of the fuel module and the resulting problems are the same. In addition to the high cost of the repair, the unusual highway breakdown was very dangerous.
