I notice that there seem to be several mentions in the forum of 'throttle body' coming up reference starting/ wear/failure problems on V70's. Is this a known problem area on these cars ? .I am wondering if there is anything we can do as owners in the way of preventative maintenance on this component. What actually does it do anyway.

thanks

If the throttle body is cleaned every 15,000 miles it will last alot longer than it does.These cars don't have a throttle cable it is all controled electronically and that is what controls the throttle.
