    Hi

    I have an S60 TS auto, when it the engine gets warm it starts to idle
    erraticly i have changed the air mass flow but it seems to have made
    no difference, although the car does seem to have a little more power
    when driving. Can any one point me to what may be wrong with it now
    please. TIA

    Probably the ETM.

    How many miles has it done? Is it worse with the a/c on or not?

    ETM - Electronic Throttle Module.

    Have a dealer inspect the car, upgrade the ECU software in relation to the
    well known ETM issues.

    If this does not fix it, you are looking at a new ETM unit, not cheap.
