Engine Performance problem
2000 Volvo S80 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 180 k miles
ok well let me try to discribe this the best I can. Somtime when I press on the gas the car doesnt respond fully. At first I thought that it had died, but then I relized that the RPMs were at the number mark and the car was going foward at about 5 to 10 mph max. And that was witht the pedal all the way to the floor. This last for about 10 seconds then it kicks back in and runs fine. This problem just started today. I was driving all day today at work (about 7hrs of drive time) at it had to have happened at least 13 tiimes. So needless to say im a little worried. Any advice.
EDIT---I got a basic diagnostics done and it gave P0030 sensor 1, bank 1, indicating that and O2 sensor was out. Could this posibly cause any other codes to come up as well becuase another poped up just a few hours ago P0121. It said somting about the " PCM saying that the actual input from the throttle position sensor does not match the calculated throttle position.&Quot; Could this new problem be caused by the faulty Oxygen sensor?
