Engine Performance problem
1997 Volvo V40 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 166000 miles
After sitting in traffic for ten minutes or more my volvo heats up to over 100 degrees and starts to stall when stopped. After retarting the Lamda warning light and the DSA warning lights stay on. The car has a normal operating temperature of around 60-65 degrees when travelling normally but rapidly heats up to 90 plus when idling in traffic. As soon as it goes up to around 100 the stalling starts. When I get out of the traffic and into normal speeds it rapidly cools and the stalling stops.
