Please help. Have had this car to dealership and various shops but no relief after 14 (yes, 14!) months. It runs all day while parked but driving it guarantees it will shut down within 20 minutes.
The mechanics working on it are baffled. Many components have been replaced, including ignition coil, y-harness, etc. New computers have been tried as well, but the problem remains. I thought it might be the throttle positioning sensor. Mechanic did get a code for this after trying new computer but replacing it did not solve the problem.
The only hint i got before it stopped the first couple of times was a smell akin to someone attempting to light a wet dog on fire. Sorry, can't think of a better way to describe it.
I can give more details if needed. Am at my wits end. Can't even trade in the car for a new Volvo because it doesn't run.
