Comments:  
Volvo Penta has identified a problem where wash water was inadvertently introduced into the throttle body unity during the manufacturing process. Entrapped water may corrode sensors within the throttle body and cause unexpectedly high RPM’s. all high RPM incidences to date occurred when the control is locked in the neutral position. However, if unexpected high RPM’s occur when the engine is in gear, a risk of collision and resulting personal injury and property damage exists. Engines were manufactured between July 2010, and May 2011.DNR and CUR 1 recieved by email 10/12/12 371 of 790 repaired eajCUR 2 recieved by email 12/13/12 520 of 790 repaired eajCUR 3 recieved by email 2/1/12 556 of 790 repaired eajCUR 4 recieved by email 6/5/12 591 of 790 repaired eaj12/19/12 e-mailed Volvo due to failure to submit CUR. eaj1/2/13 CUR 5 recieved 642 of 790 repaired.
