Customer Question

I have a reduce engine performance on my xc60 on high speed
JA: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?
Customer: I have about 150,000 km it's an automatic
JA: What year is your Xc60?
Customer: 2011
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: After servicing from Volvo I had the same warning but the car is limited to 3000 rom of power. I found a hose was disconnected. Fix it and it was ok. Now when traveling long distance at high speed I have the same alarm. But power is reduced
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: What should I check further
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Volvo Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi .

When this happens then in most cases you have a problem with the throttle body .

But what i suggest you do is have the car hooked up to a Volvo diagnostic scan tool to check for malfunction codes .

this will show you what has malfunctioned then know the correct repair procedure and not

replace parts not needed.

Still need additional information then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.

Your deposit does not pay me until the answer is rated in a positive way,
A bad rating does not constitute a refund.
If you are not happy or you have sorted out your problem before the answer then please let me know with the reply button .
Kind regards Greg.
