Question about 2004 Volvo XC90

Fuel Pump replacement

Can anyone tell me how to access the fuel pump on a volvo xc-90? I took it to a volvo dealer today and was told that the pump was leaking. The techs told me that they removed the rear seats and rolled back the carpet. Removing the seats is not easy. Any suggestions?. Dallas/Fort Worth volvo dealers want $2600 to $3000 to replace a fuel pump. For that kind of money, I'll figure it out on my own.

    I have the exact same issue! is there a defect with the fuel pumps? Anyway, you take out the center row of seats and pull the carpet up. The fuel pump is located at the incline to the third row. You will see a silver cover with 4 bolts on it about 8" in diameter. The fuel pump is located under there. I have priced them out online anywhere from $250-400.

    I have the same problem with my 2004 xc90. I brought mine to a local volvo certified tech and was told that volvo has not recalled the xc90 fuel pump but that they should. He said the fuel system is almost identical to the models that have already been recalled. If you search online you will find dozens of xc90 owners with the same complaint.

    We just had our fuel pump changed. My wife came out and try to start the car no luck. 1200 bucks later and maybe we'll be on the road. That's great to know that the great Volvo driving experience comes with 1200 fuel pumps and 4000 dollar transmissions. Maybe a Tahoe next time.

    Same 2006 XC90 fuel pump failure! The car just died in traffic. Towed to dealer and said it would cost $1400. I bought one online and will have it towed to local mechanic which is way cheaper. If I can find directions on how to replace it, I may do it myself.

You have to remove the rear seats and roll back the carpet. if it is a seven seater you have to take out some ac ducts. then there are two access ports on each side of the floor. they are usually black and have four nuts holding them down you remove those and then you have access to the pump. you need some volvo special tools to remove it. volvo has recall 220 going right now and your fuel pump maybe covered under it. i would definitely talk to the dealership about it. because that would be no out of pocket cost to you

Recall is only good on leaking pumps. Mine just failed. 10 years goes to "in service" date, not calendar years.

1995 volvo 940 not starting


Sounds like a fuel pump issue. Any more details? Does it turn over? If you elevate the back, does it start sometimes?
It might be the fuel pump. When was the last time you had it replaced? They last between 70-120k miles (my experience), so depending on the last time it was replaced, it might be time for a new one. They are relatively cheap ($100-$130) if you do it yourself, but it may cost you anywhere from $300-$1000 to have it done.
There is an access panel under the trunk liner that gives you access to the pump and floater, so if anyone tries to tell you that you need to replace the whole tank for $1200 (this actually happened to me once), just say "Thanks" and go somewhere else.
Check for other options on the pump itself, when I asked Pep Boys, they gave me a $300 one, and I said I'd get back to them. Later I found that this Bosch that was only $130 fit was exactly what I needed.

I have a 1987 volvo 760 Turbo intercooler wagon, The engine cranbks but won't start. I took off the hose return to the tank when engine is switch is on,but no gas spill out. I assume that it is the fuel...


There are 2 fuel pumps. 1 is your main fuel pump and the other is the fuel pump sender unit in your gas tank. The one in your gas tank has an access panel into the tank from under your spare tire compartment in the floor. The main fuel pump can be accessed from under the car. Make sure to change the fuel filter as well. Hopefully this has been helpful in some way.

Where is the Volvo s70 fuel pump located


The stock Bosch fuel pump is located in the fuel tank and can be accessed by removing the rear seat. Certain models have been recalled due to cracked flanges, permitting fuel to leak. If you smell gasoline inside or outside the vehicle or see wet fuel lines underneath the vehicle, contact your local Volvo dealer immediately. See below:

Gasoline smell fom volvo s60,no leaks noticed


In may be the fuel pump. Check recalls on your year make and model. My girlfriend has a 2004 S60 which had the same problem. I changed the fuel filter at first assuming that that was the problem but the smell persisted. I then took it to the volvo dealership and had them replace it for free. The only bad thing is that they may keep it for a few days to do it.
