Engine runs rough with engine light on. ETM failure. replaced with xemodex aftermaket ETM. runs good. What fails is the variable resistor potentioneter that measures the butterfly valve position. the Xemodex has designed this out and uses a magnetic sensor which does not fail. theirs is guarranteed for life.

Car felt like someone was jabbing the throttle rapidly. Car drove in a "jerky" manner unless throttle was aggressively applied. Idle was smooth. Dealer found NO codes, but upon doing a cleaning procedure found internal binding and replaced under extended warranty.

I've been dealing with mckivitt volvo in san Leandro back in forth for the last 3 years, that dealership has charged me over $1,000 ea visit. Now it's my ETM sensor, I only have 84,601 miles on 2002 s60, they are charging me $1,100 to clean or$1800 to replace it. They haven't mentioned any of this being recalled. I've replace the OCM, ECM, oxygen sensors, control arms, not to mention how many bulbs I've replaced. Im told oh, you've only been here a couple of times in 25,000 miles. WTH. This is so wrong I've found myself car less now, because I can't afford this car and volvo hasn't helped me with any thing besides replacement of fuel injection. I need HELP PLEASE!!
