Antti Suvanto: No offence, but it´s a big piece of junk made by Magneti Marelli, italy!:D
Thanks, great video, now my ride idles smooth!
Viaamtrak: I am getting the "Reduced engine performance" light on the dash of my XC90
T-5 2004 2.5. It drops down to about 10mph, then goes away in about ten
minutes or so. Any ideas? Where do I plug in the OBD2?
andyb brown: Thanks, is it possible to reuse the gasket?
Lefteris Mouratidis: sooner or later you WILL need to replace the ETM if its the ETM from
magneti marelli. Cleaning will only work for you to a certain point.
Shane Glidewell: Super thankful that folks like you take the time to do a how-to like this.
Christopher Watson: Hello~ Im using my sons site but have used your informative tutorial to
clean emt 2x in the past..but im trying to replace due to ongoing surging
and insight of recall that unfortunetly doesn't include me. I have throttle
housing out as I learned from you in the past, but the electrical wire is
leaving me confused and extremely frustrated as I really don't want to
incur the expense of having the dealership to replace...do you have any
helpful informative assistance that you might share??? Please single mother
of three boys trying to save money and learn how to fix and repair on my
Jorge duarte: Hey Chris have you had the pvc replacement done in your s80 if by chance
you have, did you take it to a dealer or did it yourself? If you took it to
dealer what was the cost?
Elizabeth Koppes: I had a Low engine pressure warning the other day I brought XC70 -04 to
garage they say to replace the trottle body part $ 650! Should I just
clean it or is my garage trying to clean me out!
lcg5000: This was very helpful. I appreciate you making a video on this. Sometimes
it's really hard to find info on this volvo. Love the car but sometimes
electronics just over complicate things and make parts and labor
Steve Berg: took my 04 Volvo in today. They recommended $1050 replacement. I sent this
link with instructions to clean. My cross country only has 92k. Thanks!
JOHN CHANDA: THANKS KRIS
andyb brown: I have a V70 and I trace the wire from the TB to the connector which is
wound behind starter bracket, so an additional 30cm of wire, but can then
remove the whole TB module from vehicle without removing the item you
mention at 3:13
john adams: Thank you for the video. Just finished cleaning the ETM. I just wish you
included the rigid hose removal not the easiest item to remove. Done on a
1999 S80 Volvo.
Rob Jenk: Nice vid... Thanks
Steven Fillmore: this is when ford owned VOLVO. I have a 960, swedish build only minor age
Ebraheem Tatour: VOLVO S80 ETM
Lynn Waters: I realize this video is a couple years old, but can I do this same process
to my 2006 XC90?
Michael Collins: I have a 2001 Volvo s-40, 1.9 turbo. My vehicle was experiencing surges
,rough idle. I took it to the dealership and had the coils replaced
(ignition colis). The dealership said I needed to replace the IAC hose
,.what that and where is it located?also needs a rest valve, tstat. how do
I replace the IACX hose and the reset valve?
Lydia Rodriguez: any idea on how to change the starter in a 2001 volvo s80
pelletiertimothy: This was a breeze to do on my 99 V70. Thanks!
El Salvador: thanks !
Lindstrom18: very helpfull
guitartricky: Thanks man! I did replace the crank position senor but what bracket are you
1959D356: While your at replacing the throttle body, don't forget to replace the
transmission and ABS control unit also.
rudyba: Thank you very much. I have a 2001 V70 and non turbo and have the problem
thay was some times very difiult to start. I called my mechanic and he
conected the scanner witch red the failure at the ETM. The mechanic told me
that it had to be changed for a new one and I red about warranties for
Volvo for 200k Milles or 10 years. I live in Guatemala and Volvo in
Guatemala does not cover that Warranty. By doing this it started inmidiatly
many times without problem, I hope it satys like this. Thank's..
David Redmon: Xemodex..actually rebuilds the one you own so no reprogramming needed
guitartricky: Thanks! The Vai guitar was kinda of an immature purchase when I was younger
and going through my "Vai" phase.;) At least back then they were half the
price they are now!
Kris Kasprzak: The car is a 2.9, no the turbo version.
mysqueeker: and its so typical. it just shows how wasteful our society is. volvo
recommends replacement when all it needs is just a simple cleaning.
Kris Kasprzak: @TybaltC yep you may be right, but I hate my volvo dealership. My old ETM
was recalled, but Volvo in their infinite wisdom, basically replaced it
with the same crappy failure prone unit.
prelude1983: Hey Kris. I have a problem with my 06 Volvo C70 t5. In the winter it`s very
hard to start it. Maybe on the second or third attempt it will go. And when
it first start a message willl pop up in the display "motoreffect reduced".
This message will stand there for about 5 minutes. Can it be a ETM issue
you think? Or maybe the air mass metter or landasonde?
Kris Kasprzak: I don't think the tach jumping before starting is related to the ETM--mine
never did as you describe.
jerry pineda: Hi timetotravel, I got 99' S80 that i believe has the same problem like
this. I called a dealership here in Vancouver and told me that its out of
warranty already. The ETM software update has been done in 2006. Now im
pretty much on my own. ( i bought it in 2010 BTW). Are the 4 nuts and bolts
underneath hard to take out. Im sorry for my question but i really
appreciate if you will break it down step by step. Thanks
TybaltC: My mechanic had me replace my gas pedal which did nothing to fix this
issue. I told him about cleaning the ETM and he did. After about five
minutes of driving, the car looses acceleration on the road, does not go
above 1,800 RPM's or 5 MPH. Anyone know what else it could be?
jprice3331: Yeah thats what i thought. It was a bit harder to do than on the 2.9 but
this video does apply to the 2.8 t6. thanks for the guide.This did fix all
idle problems i was having.
Mike Gambino: I hope this works on my S70... Lets give it a whirl!!! Got to get that
'gook' off .. (hahah)
TBguitar: I did just as you said, and will test the results later *** 2001/S60
gonzalogagliardi: what about a v70
Deadgurl212: I have a Volvo v70 and it does the same thing nonstop. Also the power
stearing jerks around alot when steep on or off the gas what could cause
Kris Kasprzak: @zaidusa With the key in the igntion, hold down the trip reset button.
While holding the button down, turn the key to position 1 for 2 sec and the
to position 2 untill the service light flashes 3 times. It's tricky and I
always have to do this a few times to get it reset.
Kris Kasprzak: de nada!
Aarontown: Wanted to just say thank you. I took out my ETM today and cleaned the holy
hell out of it. It was about 100x worse than in this video. I was looking
all over for a fix for my idling/surging issues -- luckily stumbled across
this video. My Volvo is at 155k miles, and this has never been cleaned.
After I reassembled it I drove it around for awhile and it ran like a
champ. I thought I would have to take it to the dealership but once I saw
this video I knew i had to try it. Thank you so much!
Jason B: Ahhh hmmm "some people" just have to do the "hard way".... In my 2001 Volvo
S80 I just took the top half the of the intake manifold and got easy access
to the throttle plate. I cleaned it with a wire brush and "throttle body"
cleaner and also cleaned out the oily and dirty intake manifold too. I did
mine about a year ago still runs great with 132000 miles on it!
Kris Kasprzak: Fine question. In another reply the person didn't replace the gasket and
indicated that car ran bad. I don't know if these can be easily bought. I'
personally would make one before i used silicone. Just be carefull and take
your time--best avoid the issue in general :)
Kris Kasprzak: The 4 bolts are not nearly as hard to get to as it looks. Once you remove
the air intake tube they are easy to get to--just follow the video. Note
this cleaning is only a temp fix, the real issue is bad electronics in the
unit. I'll not replace mine since a replacement unit is worth more than the
AlertDuck: Thank you for the video - did this on my 2002 S60 2.0T last weekend and the
car now runs like an absolute dream. Such an easy fix been replacing MAF
vacume hoses etc for the last year or so with no sucess. It was full of
crud and sticky stuff all gone now and works lovely.
guitartricky: Thanks Kris! That helps me narrow it down. Upon more research it seems the
tach jump could be due to a failing crank position sensor.
MrTruls75: @timetotravel hello and thanks for this one... my car have been doing this
for four weeks now.was going to buy a new one,but here in norway this cost
2000 $,,then i found this video today, tryed it,and now the car runs 100%
:-) so again..Thanks.
Rebel: Jees I feel like an idiot. I had this issue for a year, going from mechanic
to mechanic. Two days ago I got to dealership to clean ETM and this morning
my car got a heart attack. Engine light is flashing, car shakes valiantly,
smell of burning. Had I googled it earlier I would have probably save
myself $1500. Moral, make sure to check out forums before going to the
AubraneeMusic: Update: my car has been in the shop for a month. The mechanic checked
everything including the maf sensor and accelerator pedal sensor but the
car still did the same thing. So it had to be the throttle body. Ordered a
replacement one from Xemodex on 1/28 got here 1/29 and picked my car up
from the shop same day they put it on. Xemodex is such a lifesaver! I was
car sick without my baby and this is the first problem I ever had with my
car. I love my s80 and thanks Xemodex!
