Does the car throw a check engine code? If so, what is that code?
This could also possibly be the ignition. My V70 had a bit of trouble on a couple of cold mornings. I replaced the ignition switch (located in the steering column on the opposite side of the key hole).
Also check the fuel pressure and fuel filter. Could be a pump and filter problem. Fuel condenses at lower temperatures and if the pump is having issue pushing the thicker fuel through the filter, take a look at that to be an issue.
Lastly, check the throttle and the fuel injectors. Run fuel system and injector cleaner like HEAT through the fuel tank to see if it helps.
I understand you replaced the relay but not the pump, right ? Has the fuel filter been replaced recently ? Are you sure there is gas in the tank ? You should be able to jumper the pump relay and check fuel pressure.
call a napa or other parts store, ask them for the pump for each model and see if its the same par number ,,,, never mind I just did it for you,, at auto zone they are the same part the 2.3 and 2.4 all the motors have the same thing , from 93 to 2000 so your in luck,, better yet, Its 175.99 so there ya go
your volvo has two pumps one in the fuel tank and one under the car if your car runns good from full tank to about half it is probbely the pump in the tank that is the problem if the car tend to missfire and run poorly. good luck Hans from sweden the home of the mighty volvo
Fuel pumps are common on these cars. Its a hard fault to duplicate with a gauge because they rarely die at idle! I would still connect a gauge and see pressures though, see what happens to them when it starts to die (if it will at idle). 99/100 times you need to replace the fuel pump, and fuel pump relay. The relay overexcites and burns out your fuel pump. As long as you dont have AWD its not a difficult job, if its AWD then you have to lower the whole back end of the car (springs, diff, AOC....) to lower the tank enough to get to the pump. Make sure that you align the pump correctly or you will have a false fuel level reading.
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:
