Default V70 D5 goes limp

The engine systems service light is on permanently

Volvo dealer investigated and they replaced a turbo control valve but the light is still on.

Brilliant diagnostic they say further investigation is required.

Most of the time the car drives as normal being the D5 engine, but now and again it looses power (almost like a loss of turbo) but will carry on driving and will often clear itself and carry on.

The not so brilliant main dealer does not think it is a turbo fault. DUH!!!!

But by using a crystal ball {I suspect VIDA is not showing any fault codes} they say it is probably a connection or other problem but are unable to say what is wrong

IDEAS THOUGHTS WILD GUESSES???

So did they use vida on the car?
why did they change the turbo control valve did they test it,or did they just have a go, see if it will fix it, and charge you anyway,
you could find a local forum user to read the car

Thatíll have been the v70 in Hemel Hempstead then. I considered it, but way too far away to risk driving it home.

NOPE Tunbridge Wells

and they said it would get back to Sunny Scotland without any problems as it only did this 'rarely'

Which was probably why the dealer could not locate the problem

As I am sure the car ran perfectly when the dealer was looking at it....typical phantom intermittent fault never shows up when you are looking at it for the problem :-(
