2001 Volvo XC V70; 131,000 miles. Occasionally (3 times in the last month) when I start the car, the engine starts as usual but the accelerator has no affect at all. No increase whatsoever in the rpms and if I put the car in Drive there is no response at all. If I turn the engine off and re-start, the car runs normally without any other problems. The Volvo dealership service dept says they've never heard of this and don't know what to do. Can you explain this occasional malfunction? Thanks.
