2000 Volvo S70 Starts then dies. Seems to do it more often if the engine is warm. Wait 10 minutes and it starts and runs fine.


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.

Are ceramic pads and slotted rotors worth the extra money? I need to replace t-stat in my 2000 Volvo S70 GLT SE non-turbo, what temperature rating do i want for the new t-stat? Does this car have a PCV...


The ceramic pads are worth the extra money, due to the increase in the quality of the pads, slotted rotors, not so much. Original equipment is a 192 degree thermostat. If the car tends to run a little hot, a lower temperature one maybe considered. There is no PVC.

2000 volvo s70 difficult to start, more so as fuel level drops. Cranks fine. Recently changed MAF sensor, B+ cable, plugs, fuel filter - no improvement.


Sounds like the fuel pump, as the levels of the fuel tank drop, there's less natural pressure on the fuel, which would definitely make it harder to start with a weak fuel stream from a bad pump.

Need plastic seal at nozzle end of fuel injector below rubber o-ring for 1999 Volvo S70 GLT


That was there for assembly purposes, I have ordered new injectors, and they have not been on there either. There is no actual need for that lower plastic retainer, and its NOT available through the dealer either

98 volvo s70 stalling out, then finally after a day wouldnt start


If the air pump system is setting a fault, then the check valve is probably bad. If it is not addressed, eventually exhaust gases can run back through the air hose to the air filter housing and destroy the MAF sensor, causing these types of problems.

The fuel pump also fails and is a more likely cause of the stalling, and it wont set a code.
