Did this video help you?

Mike Swankhouse: Oh sure it's so easy without turbo piping in the way. :)

Jessica Vaughn: I have a 1990 740 gl. It only want to fully start sometimes and it does crank. I'm not sure if its a fuel or starter issue can you help?

Darrien Richardson: I have a 2002 T6 and don’t see that module on my engine...

Scott MacPherson: Good video. Will try this.
Next time say "and its a great way to stay in shape"

Peter Bergonzi: I really appreciated your cautionary "use googles" and "put out the cigarette!"

Fire Rises: will this cause the car to not start? like zero ignition

Jana LaBonte: I have a 87 245 DL 4 cyl auto. I am having issues because the engine runs with low power on 3 cylinders. Ive replaced plugs, wires & sensors. I am lost nothing works. Can you help me please?

HOW IT WORKS LoL: Could you guys give me advice, having myself t6 s80 2001 car, it had before such problem with RPM, but right now on hot engine it literally starts shaking itself and it is pretty uncomfortable, while on drive mode it shakes as crazy, while neutral /parking shake is still motional but it is less, could it be the same issue as in video:)?

Attila AttilaFX: 2001 Volvo S40 2.0 Turbo petrol engine same crap. Let the garage clean this module but issue is back again. Really a big peace of junk by Volvo. Also issues when starting in the cold and it seems like there is not enough power.

Amtrakfan2009: Are you a mechanic or something?

Angel T.: well this be The same on a 2005

Santa Clause: My car's idle does not pulse up and down, It just sits @ low rough idle.
Requires the gas pedal to be pressed down before it will start.

I've already had it off once and did a cleaning however nothing that extensive. Should I be looking at something else as the culprit or re clean the ETM?

Transcdent: is not only volvo issue many makes have problem with this so clean clean...

Clifford Taylor: I have a c70 and cleaned the etm..but it still drops speed and idle flickers up and down.could it be the senor thats not working proper on it . Would love feed back..

Tyler Imai: I have a 1997 volvo 850r with this problem, is the same procedures relevant?

pete8475: THANK YOU!

Gamaliel Rodriguez: Do you have any idea why my volvo s40 1.9 turbo 2001 stop running at low revolutions? I change the flow meter and also clean the idle control valve, but the problem persist.

Sean Ingstrum: Usually you have to go down the entire air intake line. IAC (air idle valve), MAF (mass air flow), TB (throttle body) and clean thoroughly. Make sure and only use MAF sensor cleaner on your sensors and connectors. Throttle body cleaner on your machined parts. Clean very thoroughly! If it still renders the same results, made need replacement.

ZynovFTW: My car drops to 500 rpm when slowing down and it almost stalls, but never does. You think it's an ETM issue? '99 Volvo S70 non-turbo. 144k miles.

John Ferguson: Disconnect the battery, very important.
It is a good opportunity to test the ETM to see if the position sensors and step motors and electronic package is working well.
You should turn on the key and let the car sit for 10 minutes while the computer relearns the ETM output before starting.
