1998 volvo s70 part question

Need to find replacement part and am having a great deal of difficulty. The fuel line between the fuel tank and the fuel filter has sprung a leak. Obviously it needs replacing, but I am having a great deal of trouble finding the part. Is there another term used to describe this fuel line? Maybe if I knew what the proper terminology is I could find the part.

Fuel line is about it. Any part for a volvo is extremely hard to find. Where exactly is it leaking at? If it is a plastic type hose you should be able to look in the ends and there are o rings in there that can be replaced versus changing out the whole hose. If it is a metal one most auto part stores can make a new one. I might be able to find the oem part number for you and then you can google the number to find the hose. Let me know if you are interested in that.

Try volvopartswebstore-this link might have what you need, although I'd start from their home page and put in all your own engine information to make sure you get the right part. There are other OEM sites with competitive prices, including tascaparts. Or a dealer can pull up these type of diagrams for you.

I'd also try, which has an incredible forum for S70s / 850s.

SOURCE: Where is fuel filter on 1998 Volvo S70 non turbo?

the fuel filter is located underneath the rear passenger seat next to the canister box (the canister looks more like an air filter box housing. All you need is an 1/2 inch key to loosen one screw and pull on one end of the hose/tube to release it from the fuel filter. Pull opposite the unit. your best solution is to look to buy it on line so you have an idea as to what you are looking for then check against the info provided to you. I just did mine 15 mins. next to the rear tire. You will need to jack up the rear tire for easy access

Check or replace fuel filter again. You could have had a lot of sediment in your tank. If it ran good for a week, that's where you need to start figuring out what was replaced during that time. If you can, check fuel pressure at schraeder valve on fuel rail.

I have a 1998 Volvo S70. In cold start up, car runs 15 seconds, then dies out. It won't start after that. I've cleaned throttle body, cleaned out air induction pump, and replaced air pump relay.

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.

My tank lickeing from top do have to put a new fuelpump in it

If the tank is leaking from the top, it seems the pump is working. You may have to lower the tank to fix the leak, if you can't get to it where mounted. Maybe a main fuel line or return line has sprung a leak.

Fuil pump is working but no gas prssure

You need to check the sock on the fuel pump and the lines. I have had situations where the fuel pump sounds like it is working but it is actually not pulling any fuel in and this is usually a bad seal or an air leak on one of the lines. Testing of this is a little more in depth and of moderate difficulty. Usually to verify I pull the fuel pump and apply direct power to the pump from a stand by battery I have while I have the pump submerged in a bucket of fuel. If it sucks up fuel and pumps it out then the pump is good, if it doesn't I either rebuild or replace the pump. Your problem is going to be on the pump itself or line coming out of the pump with a small air leak.

My 1998 Volvo S70 is cutting off....I have had it for 6months and it is at a mileage of abot 168K....not sure of service records to know when last tune up was done. My fluids are normal and it is not...

it could be a couple of things going on, the fuel filter may need to be changed, plug wires may need changing, the mass air fuel sensor may need cleaning or replaced. I would go with a tune up: change spark wires, distributor cap and rotor, chang fuel filter and air filter. doing the latter may cure your problem

Sounds like one of the lines from the fuel pump is leaking. They come attached to the fuel filter. Replace the fuel filter.
