    I am fed up. I am a loyal owner (91 740 wagon, 92 740GLE and Volvo boat
    engine and a 2000 S80). My local dealer cannot get my S80 running right.
    From 45-60 it runs very rough. They cant find a thing. I am considering
    selling the car because of it. Help

    i have a s80 2,9 1999 - it runs rough when temp meter is halv way, always
    has and probably always will?? 3 times in service but no change. Just have
    to wait till engineĀ“s hot then it runs really fine.
    otherwise really nice car - just lack the twin turbo and automatic gearbox.

    I'll give an opinion.. let's look at what could be wrong.. some air/fuel
    sensor, fuel surges due to fuel pump issues, some computer issue.. about all
    I can come up with. I assume the plugs are in good shape and the air cleaner
    is clean.

    I would assume if the dealer can reproduce the problem from 45-60, they
    should be able to fix it. My guess, some air/fuel sensor.
