Question about 1999 Volvo S70
I have an issue with my 1999 Volvo S70 GLT. It has over 250,000 miles. The problem seems to be with accelerating. After driving about a mile or so, it starts to slip acting as if it's in neutral. The engine continues to stay on though. After waiting a few minutes, I'm able to drive it a little more before the problem occurs again. I've taken it to several places to get it checked, and they all say the same thing, which is to get the entire transmission replace, which would cost about $2400. I'm pretty limited financially, so I'm really hoping this is not the only solution.

SOURCE: check engine light
Most check engine light faults are related to a vacuum leak in the system. It could be as simple as a loose gas cap. In my case, and the majority of other S70's, there is a small vacuum hose elbow, located out of sight from the engine manifold and behind the engine thermostat housing, that has deteriorated and is most likely setting the code in your vehicle for a fault. It is not easy to get to and will take some effort to replace. You can go to Autozone and they can read the code for you to see if you're going in the right direction. If it is a gross vacuum leak as determened by the code, then look a the rubber elbows/hoses in the charcoal vapor canistor vacuum circuit. Check out some of the forums such as Mathews or Bay13 for technical inof on the actual repairs.

If the air pump system is setting a fault, then the check valve is probably bad. If it is not addressed, eventually exhaust gases can run back through the air hose to the air filter housing and destroy the MAF sensor, causing these types of problems.
The fuel pump also fails and is a more likely cause of the stalling, and it wont set a code.

No the volvo does not have a servicable filter, The best thing to do is to flush new fluid through the transmission periodically, replacing all of the fluid.

i got the same car as urs. its seems to me that its the classic problems that you have. To slove them. Dont go to a dealer, coz they ll rip u off. Now, check on DIY guide for uninstalling ABS moudle. Go to ebay, find urself a ABS Moudle rebuild. 60-80bugs. put it back on. It ll slove ur limb home mode, speed meter drop to 0 when driving. flashing arrow. Contact volvo, buy urself a new ignition antena ring, 50bugs. and once again. look for DIY guide for installation. I replace both of them myself for less than an hour. u might need to buy some special torx for abs moudle tho. but it wont be a big deal. Hope it helps you.
