    ECM Requires Maintenance - Dash Warning Volvo

    Chemical cleaners are not designed to stop the injectors from leaking. Usually if you have a leaking injector it needs to be replaced.

    I’ll admit it I’m scared.

    Look at your closet space that is available to you in the bedroom. Most front living room floorplans are a bit on the small size compared to the front bedroom designs. Something to concider when spending lots of time living in your portable home.

    Direct LInk - Emergency Stop

    If you have an UltraShift and are in "D" then I believe it would depend on your RPM's before it would let you downshift. If you switch to "manual" mode you need to be wary of your "RPM's" before you manually downshift. Have you tried selecting "low" when descending a hill?

    ECM Requires Maintenance - Dash Warning Volvo

    I would clear all the codes before starting it again and see what you get. You may have a small leak on the injector that was mentioned in the fault codes. Priming usually takes more than 7 strokes if you had an air leak and I’m wondering if you should see fuel coming out of the primer. Primers have known to leak and caused hard starting. Just a thought. Usually an air leak in your fuel line doesn’t trigger an “ECM” code unless the leak is causing another issue that the ECM would care about.

    You have a diagnostic area in the “drivers information display” (DID) right there on your dash. You should be able to pull up the fault codes under the “diagnostics” page. Write down all of the codes. Might help with some troubleshooting....

    How many pumps did it take to prime the fuel system? Did you ever check to see what fault codes you might have? Did this problem just happen one day or over a period of time?
