Question about 2007 Volvo S40 2.4i Sedan

1 Answer

2007 volvo S40 will not start after replacing alternator belt, smell gas after trying to start

Car stalled when trying to pull it in the garage, replaced a broken alternator belt: AC belt looked ok but replaced it when I replaced the alternator belt. CAM belt looks to be in ok condition as well. No codes when hooked up to a scanner and engine smells of fuel after trying to start, I think its flooding, was thinking maybe no spark.

I am thinking faulty injectors and/or excessive fuel pressure in the fuel manifold . Run fault codes again ensuring that the cables used and the procedure to connect is adhered to as there will be a fault code recorded but not being read

SOURCE: 2001 Volvo s40/ takes 5-10 seconds to start.

fuel filter is at right side of gas tank undernieth car
by pumping the gas all you are doing is opening the throttle plates alowing some air.its not uncomin for injection cars with higher mileage to need alittle more air for start up.
check ECT sensor.
clean throttle plates
is check engine light on?

SOURCE: how do i gain access to fuelpump on 2002 volvo v70

From Volvo Cars of North America letter I received:  "[Volvo] has voluntarily decided to extend warranty coverage for the fuel pump on U.S. model year 2001-2002 Volvo S80, S60, V70, and XC70 vehicles."
The letter goes on to describe conditions that in the end, may result in a fuel odor.  "Coverage is limited to the symptoms described in this letter for the fuel pump only." 
Contact a Volvo dealer to have this corrected under warranty.  If you already paid to have this fixed, then you can submit the repair order with a copy of the warranty letter (keeping both for your records) to Volvo on the address on the letter.  If you did not get the letter, I'd suggest contacting Volvo.
Bottom line is that you should not have to pay to have this fixed.

My 2004 volov s40 is having starting problems


It sounds like the fuel pressure regulator diaphragm is broken, causing fuel to flood the engine when first started, then clear up and run fine.This is a common problem. let the vehicle sit for a few hours , then pulling off the vacuum hose to the regulator. Fuel may dribble out of the hose indicating bad regulator.You can also smell the end of the hose for a raw gas smell.
