Question about 2004 Volvo XC90

1 Answer

Fuel smell XC-90

The complaints of the fuel smell is most likely due to a defect in the fuel pump and or seal. Volvo has extended warranty coverage to fix it at least in California.
This defect is both a health hazard for the occupants and a fire hazard. I reported my problem to the Department of Transportation as a serious safety issue. I would encourage all to do the same.

Gas tank leaking


It is probably your fuel pump. I have the same car, and smelled gas for a while, even had trouble starting car when I was low on gas. Volvo has an extended warranty for this part, so it was replaced for free at a dealership.

My 1999 volvo xc 70 engine light just came on and it sputters when I put on the gas and it smells like something is burning I've had both the studder and the gas smell problem, the studder was the O2...


Sound like a possible leak or you have a bad injector. You will not be able to lokk under the car for any leaks due the fuel will evaporate, you will need to start the car and look at the fuel rail while it's running. If it is not that check your fuel filters. If your lines do not have addaquate fuel pressue due to a leak or a dirty filter, it could cause those symptoms...


Good luck!

Smell of gas fumes underneath vehicle near fuel tank


I also have a 2004 XC90 and a couple of months ago I had the exact same probelm... after multiple visits to my dealer's auto shop they figured out that it was the fuel pump. They replaced the fule pump and the smell disappeared. Good luck!

Gas leaking on top of tank


its most likely either broke the seal on the halfway of the tank or the fill spout has become damaged and needs replacement. id start by testing the pressure of the tank then deciphering whether or not its the tank or the fill spout.

You should inquire about an extended fuel pump coverage. Volvo has released an extended warranty coverage.
