Question about 2000 Volvo S70

2 Answers

Starting problem When starting the car, it will start the rpm's will rise up and the car will die. then the car will just turn over and not start at all. This might happen a couple of times. let it sit a few seconds reset the key and it will start. This might happen once or twice a week, normaly in the mornings. I'm woundering if the fuel pump is going. The starting problems have been going on for a few mounths. Today the car will not stay running. you have to keep the rpm's up untill it warms up enough to stay running on its own. My wife hit something in the road that blew out one of her tire. had it towed to tire shop where they said the car had a cracked turbo cooler/ inner cooler the put some kind of opoxy to fix the crack. The car only started to run like this after she run over the metal object in the road. I'm woundering if I have two problems here or one problem that has gotten worst. Thank you

Just out of curiosity what does the protectant on your key look like. I had a problem similar and the black rubber type protectant around the key base was worn down pretty well. After having a new key made never had the problem again.( note ck another spare key if it is not worn and see if it still dies ) GOOD LUCK

If it started after the damage was done to the intercooler pipe, then that is where you should focus. A leak in that pipe/hose will cause the problem you mention.
I would guess the check engine light is on, but even if it's not, get the codes checked.

1998 Ford Explorer Ltd - V-8 5.0L - will not start - hard starting yesterday when it would start but not increase RPM then died. Now will not start at all. Spark is good

Start by checking for fuel pressure and fuel delivery to the injectors, you can quickly check this by spraying starting fluid into the air intake of the engine, if it starts and dies the engine is not getting fuel.

My 2003 S430 Mercedes Benz's wont accelerate when I press the gas pedal. The RPM gauge does not rise either. What do you think it could be?

  1. The Pedal is not connected!! as there is no action it does, since you can easily start on the engine, then there is no problem with the engine itself.
  2. Does the RPM moves while trying starting engine? if YES, so it is a pedal problem
