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 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.
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
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.
