Default changing gear slowly low revs

evening all

i have an issue with my xc90 2007. basically it was/is changing gear very slowly and not picking up. we've had the throttle housing changed as it was broken but the issue still remains plus the engine light is on along with engine system service required.

any ideas??

Chris

It's only a matter of a short time before someone (who actually knows what he's talking about) tells you to read the codes with VIDA - so I'll do it.

Read the codes with VIDA - then you have a fighting chance of getting some assistance with your problem.

Also specify what engine you have.

Good Luck

Cheers

Dave

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I concur.

The alternative is:

Blindfold yourself, spin around three times, open the bonnet, say four magic words, and touch something inside the engine bay with a screwdriver. That'll be the faulty part.

Or then again maybe not....

The point is, you are blind without reading the codes, and partly blind when reading codes with anything other than VIDA

You missed the middle part out Swiss - which is open your wallet and shake it over a waste bin three times.... :-)
