2004 Volvo S60 2.5T AWD. Has a funny idle that has just started. No lights on the dash, but at idle the car seems to be trying to catch up to its self. The only thing that I can think of, is the engine jumped time?? Or there could be a vacuum leak?

Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Hi Greg,

I'm not an expert on this, but have you checked the cam sensor? This monitors the cam position and they frequently fail. Could be it is just in the beginning stages of failure and that is causing the erratic idle.

Just a thought.

I want to die like my Grandfather did, peacefully in his sleep.
Not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

Could be a vacuum leak, but you might also check your coil packs. How many miles on the car? Was the timing belt done at right interval?
