Question about 1998 Volvo S70

1 Answer

My 1998 volvo s 70 keeps stalling on the high way . loses power.

The volvo dealer cannot seem to find the problem. They are now
going to change the mass air flow sensor. The check engine light
came on so they also put it on the computer , but could not solve the
problem. The car other wise runs fine. This stalling issue has just started.

Thank you

Hi Joe, first I have never worked on a volvo however, I would suggest you have them check the CPS (cam positioning sensor) and the CSS (crankshaft sensor) ford and chrysler have the exact problem and these sensors dont throw codes. I hope this will help you my friend good luck and let me know how you make out, take care.

How do you change the injectors on a 1998 volvo v70

You undo the bolts on the fuel rail, unplug the electrical connection and GENTLY pry the injectors upward away from the intake. I have never heard of a injector going bad on a 70 series car. Are you sure of your diagnosis?

1998 Volvo S70 stalls intermittently

Have tried getting quality gasoline at a reliable station? It sounds like water in your fuel system. Add a couple bottles of Iso-Heet fuel system dryer everytime you fill up the next few times, and that should cure it.
