I have S40 2004, ~84000 km. Engine light tuned on, scanner showed a pair of P0015s, one pending. I decided to monitor with a scanner what is happening and found out that error code appears during engine cold start, after the car was parked for 5-6 hours or overnight. At first one error code appears as pending and after another cold start engine light comes up and I can see 2 of them. The same thing happens if I turn cold engine on and off two times in a row, but if I turn the cold engine on, let it run idle for 2 min, turn it off and on again, there is only one pending code sitting their.

I desided to test the car for a long drive in a mixed city/highway cycle. Cleaned the codes before that. Was driving for about 2.5 hours, with some stops, no error codes showed up. Then parked the car for couple of hours. After that start of the engine was clean.
I haven't noticed any changes in car performance, fuel consumption or overheating.

I did engine flush with Seafoam (used half of 473 ml can for 200 km), changed oil and filter after, put synthetic 5W30. Mechanic told me the filter was very dirty. He also checked CVVT solenoid, said it was a bit dirty. He cleaned it without taking apart. It clicks when power is applied. Still mechanic said he is not 100% sure that it working properly.
Anyway, nothing of that helped to get rid of error codes showing up.
I read some postings regarding P0015 and I am not sure what to do.
Any help is higly appreciated.
