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

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

My Volvo S70 was running fine until my gas light came on and I parked the car, assuming I could get gas later. When I got in my car, it started sputtering and would cut off. Had the fuel filter replaced,...

OK this can't be a definite but I've seen similar & I want to share this with you. First, realizing the age of the fuel tank I have to imagine that there is a lot of small particles that have accumulated over the years that are inside the fuel tank. That is not unusual & is why you have a fuel filter on the fuel lines, to trap debris, otherwise a filter on the inlet to the tank would be fine.

Regardless, when the tank got extremelhy low, the sediment got sucked into the filter/sock that is mounted at the base of the fuel pick-up in your fuel tank at the lowest possible point. This tends to also cause the pumps to quit working either immediately, or soon after. I've replaced many fuel pumps & cleaned many tanks, this could be the issue. Really, other than refueling the car & putting in some fuel injector/carb cleaner that could possibly aid in removing the buildup on the in tank filter, replacemen may be necessary if it doesn't free up. I have always suggested that those with Fuel Injuected cars never go below 1/4 tank due to this specific problem. Good Luck.

My 1998 Volvo S70 is hard to crank then runs rough

Try replacing the fuel filter, as it can be the first thing that goes. With the new mandated regulations to add MTBE's and ethanol you may have received a slug of one or both, they can separate in the tank while setting. Try that first and if it does not work post here and I will help you more if it is needed.

Where is fuel filter on 1998 Volvo S70 non turbo?

The fuel filter can be located under the carpeted cargo storage floor at the rear of the wagon. Remove the four 10mm bolts, remove the cover. You will then see a removable plate to the right just behind the rear passenger seat. Fuel filter can be seen through hole in hole. Replaced from underneath wagon. Be sure to make sure lines are fully inserted onto filter. Check for leaks. Note arrow on filter for correct fuel flow. Good luck and hope this helps and no smoking please LOL
