turns out that the volvo 1.6 engine doesnt suffer the problem im experiencing... and it gets better the little yellow !Removed! had come back on and its REALLY annoying me.

 

this time its misfiring with no power and the codes logged are P2303 ignition coil circuit 'B' and P000A. its possible that its timing related. looks like i will be throwing in the towel and sending it to a ford independent garage, which leads me to another question any ford specialists in leeds

Sounds like the variable cam timing exactly what i had the cam isnt advancing or retarding correctly and volvos do suffer from it im afraid quite a lot of posts on the net with some having sold there volvo on due to it

Just the s80 v40 s40 v70 has vvt in 1.6 form all ford engines trust me the best thing to do is simply fix it dont mess around with the vvt the higher power volvos are vvt from 2000 onwards in the above models

this is the link to the parkers site for the s40 2004 onwards http://www.parkers.c...40/saloon-2004/ there is only 1 1.6  petrol listed and its the 'low power' one

 

now for the plan that was undertaken.

im a member of the AA and it covers me not the car. so me and my dad drove to his mates house a mile away and gave them a call. the AA guy comes and finds a broken wire at the ignition coil connector. he carried out a temp repair and ill take it to work and carry out a proper repair and monitor the problem.

 

he also said that that is possibly why the VVT actuators are responding slowly as the ECU doesnt know exactly when the plugs are sparking.

 

like i said ill keep an eye on it. i know what the next port of call is now
