Enes :

Enes :

Enes :

Enes :

Enes :

Enes :

Customer :

Nothing has come into my email from you yet, just the confirmation of my deposit from justanswer.volvo

Enes :


 


 



Enes :

not in email i cant talk to you thru email

Enes :

you see that blue click here do that click that and save it ok

Enes :

you see it now ?


 


 

Customer :

got it, yes-looking at it now

Enes :

ok


 

Enes :

that is from volvo i work for volvo dealer we get those pproblem

Customer :

using a snap on modis scan tool if it makes a difference

Customer :

this is the same information i have in Alldata and from Identifix, we'll see if the 30 min clearing makes a difference. all of our fuel trim data had been reset to 0% after the 10 min reset.

Enes :

use that exaact from volvo

Enes :

if dotn work try resessting using volvo scanner

Enes :

test drive can take up to 200 miles on some cars belive it or not

Customer :

 


 

Customer :

It continues to show closed loop fault after the clearing procedure and flywheel adaptation have been performed. my understanding is that the trip monitors will not trip if there is a closed loop fault. Do you have any insight on the ways in which we can satisfy/diagnose the components that create "closed loop failure"? Maybe once that failure has been arrested, the readiness monitors will trip? By the way, I don't have access to a Volvo scan tool and therefore cannot confirm things that the OE scan tool is able to see. Fuel trim numbers are still a little above what we know to be the threshold of 10%-sitting at -11% long term..

Customer :

Again, new front O2 sensor, new fuel pressure regulator, fuel pressure at 45 psi. Had p0133 and then p0171. Both codes not present. MAF numbers are 3.5 gps at idle.

Customer :

So far Enes, you have not helped me understand anything /we don not already know.

Enes,


You are receiving a poor rating from me as I have discovered without your help the answer to my problem. The car now has a legal NJ State inspection sticker without any trickery and none of it had to do with any of your suggestions. I did not use another computer and I did not use a Volvo scan tool. You might be interested to know that the local Volvo dealer could not help me either. The help I got was from another independent repair shop who gave me exactly what I needed. 15 minutes later the car passed inspection. If you'd like to find out what fixed it, refund my $79.00 and I'll share it with you. SK

Volvo Mechanic: Enes, VOLVO Master Technician replied 5 years ago
We are in same business I try to help you ! You asked. Question I answered to you . You paid web page before you asked question . Now you rate me negative for the fact you don't like the answer or you say you know the answer but I did not know what you know I took my time to work and help you I don't understand ? All you can have done ask for refund right away but you picked to pay and rate me bad for all I was trying to help you . Thank you I wish you all the best . I get you the refund I'm not like that you will get refund from. The web page .
