Hi all, I have a problem with my S40 R design its a 1.9 diesel and the garage hasn't a clue so where else but here!! Its 3 years old and recently has started to lose power very briefly, the car feels like it has been switched on and off very quickly, all dash lights flicker on and it feels like its going to stop. After about 1 second the car runs normal again. Last time this happened my ' Anti Skid Service' light came on and the rev counter stopped functioning, after switching the car on and off all was well again.

Garage said they couldn't find anything wrong with it and to make sure i was a member of the AA !!!

I would be grateful for any ideas, Thanks

Your problem sounds similar to that described by other forum uses in the following link and turned out to be foreign matter or moisture (likely from bad fuel) in the fuel filter. Changing this seemed to fix the problem.

sounds like you have water ,in your fuel filter, very small amount, under the filter, is a nut , open it, to let the water out, then close it,you may need to then bled it, if the car will not then start, you have a lever on the side of your pump or the type that has a large button you push in, get the pressure up, you keep pushing to keep up the pressure , as you do this get some one to turn on your ignition to start the car.
