SOURCE: 1996 volvo 960 engine turn off suddenly when I was driving

it may be a fuel pump fault. Cutting out and restarting is a classic sign of a failing fuel pump.

Here in the UK the VOlvo 960 is a 3 litre car (may be a different model to the USA version of the 960) and has 2 fuel pumps. One is situated in the tank and lifts the fuel into the pipeline system. The 2nd fuel pump is located underneath the car alongside the fuel filter underneath the passenger side (UK) and gives the fuel a boost to shove it up to the engine.

To check fuel pressure, find the pipe that goes to the injectors ... there usually is a connector where the metal pipe connects to the flexible rubber pipe. Undo the connector and switch the ignition on ... fuel should spray out at high pressure .. .high pressure .. not small squirts and dribbles.

Fuel pumps are damn expensive. It could also be a sensor at fault - like a crankshaft sensor. The cheapest way to get it sorted is to ask a workshop to identify the fault for you (you can do any work required) - they can check the sensors and electrics on their computer. Changing parts one by one to try and cure a fault can work out damn expensive .... get the fault identified for you first. Its worth the money ..

I think there are still photos of UK Volvo 960 fuel pumps on my website at :

SOURCE: 2000 Caravan-Engine cooling fans not running, replaced temperature sensor and fan relay, still not working-HELP

Did you replace the sensor by the thermostat in the engine block or the one under the drivers headlight, There are two, the one next to the thermostat controls the temp gauge in the vehicle. the one under the headlight assembly controls the actual fans and is a electronic module. You have to remove the head light assembly to get to it.

Engine cuts off


Check the relays. A worn connection could cause this.
The fuel pump relay is often the culprit.
If you try twisting the relays, gently while it's running, or while you try starting it, you may find the problem.
Hope that's it.

Car wont start engine will crank


One of those relays supply power to the injectors. They fail, as well as the fuel pump relay, rpm sensor, and the main pump. Have you checked the trouble codes in the engine or ignition computers?

My 98 c70 has a check engine light on and it says that the engine is running lean. I have changed everything from pluga to filters to O2 sensors. It runs but it hesitates sometimes and changes gears very...


First off, go to AutoZone and get the code scanned. They'll do it free, and will give you the fault code. Post that up and we can take it from there.

Just to ponder - have you checked the mass airflow sensor? If it's giving erroneous reasons it can cause you to fuel the engine incorrectly.
