Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?Customer: 550 miles, autoJA: Are you fixing your XC70 yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: No, I take it to a dealer. Dealer tech looked at it, he says it's normal. I also tried driving more normally, as in accelerating faster for upshiftJA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: The symptom happens mostly when I coast ~35mph, lower than 1500 rpm, then slowly accelerate.

I have a 2005 Volvo XC90 with the 4.4L V8, and 157k miles.

Hi,I have a 2005 Volvo XC90 with the 4.4L V8, and 157k miles. The immediate problem that I have at this time is that then engine "stumbles", that is, it intermittently misses and misfires, upon fairly light acceleration. If I accelerate with a fairly heavy throttle, the engine doesn't stumble, and if I accelerate with a very light throttle, it also doesn't stumble, but with a fairly light throttle that one might use when not having to keep up with traffic or not have to get anywhere in much of a hurry, then the engine regularly stumbles. It mostly does this between 1,500 and 2,000 rpm. The idle is also not very smooth and it surges at stop lights with the transmission in gear.It's my belief that the problem is associated with the small allen adjustment screw of some kind located on the top of the throttle body. Some time back a mechanic had broken the apparent seal on this adjustment screw and adjusted the screw in attempt to fix an engine code. It turned out that the screw was unrelated to the engine code problem at the time and I believe he put the screw back to it's original setting. The engine ran normal after he was done. Unfortunately, since the seal was now broken, the screw was apparently able to rotate on it's own through engine vibration and over the course of time the engine began to stumble as described above. When I checked into it under the hood, I could see the adjustment screw was completely gone. I found another allen screw that would fit, but I've had no luck through experimentation with the screw's adjustment in eliminating the stumbling problem. My guess is that the adjustment is too fine, and my 1/4 turn at a time adjustments, are missing the exact position it needs to be for proper engine operation. It may be too that the replacement screw isn't shaped properly on the contact end and not able to properly do it's job.It was my guess that the screw adjusts the throttle butterfly valve's most closed position, but when the screw was completely gone, then it seems that the engine shouldn't have be able to idle at all. Since it did idle, (although roughly, as it still does), when the screw was out, then I'm supposing that I really don't understand what the screw's function is and so I don't know where to begin in trying to modify the screw or adjust it.Can you offer some advice?ThanksDoug
