Engine service required

Posted Mar 27th, 2012 at 16:31 by Jackarthur

Hi, Help required.
I have a 2002 V70 deisel and the message
"Engine service required" usually appears at around 2500 rpm. I have the car serviced regularly and have recently aquired another fault which I now understand to be a reluctor ring, as I receive another message ABS/service required. I hear a rattle from the nearside and a loss of power accompanied by the yellow/orange triangle which appears. The power returns once the car straightens up although the triangle remains. I can however overcome this by pressing the STC button. Are these faults comming from the same source?
