Re: S80 cutting out on the Overrun
Hi .. I had a 99 S80 T6 .. this would happen to me occasionally ..
sometimes when I was going 65 MPH .. I got good at slipping the shift
into N and restarting the engine with the car in motion. The dealer
was never able to completely fix the problem. They thought it was an
engine sensor that was sending a "fuel Flooding" signal to the fuel
pump and shutting it down momentarilly. It would happen 4 times in a
day, then not again for 3 months. I finally ditched the car for this
exact reason, as I saw it as a safety issue.
