SOURCE: 1995 BMW 318Tds Fuel Starvation Problem

Sorry this is not a solution. Just to say I own a 1997 318tds which only starts on the button if the tank is at least half full. This was looked at professionally shortly after i bought the car 3 years ago.( I did wonder why it was sold to me with such a full tank). I was told it would need the fuel tank replacing. Bearing in mind the value of the car & the fact the owner is now too geriatric to do major repairs, I just make sure it is always half-full, and live with it.. This could be your problem. BMWs chap said it was logged on their system as a known but unusual fault.

SOURCE: 1999 Volvo s80 fuel line leak before and after the fuel filter

this perticular solution requires special fuel line tools to disconect the clips on the line. I would first locate the leak and determine if the entire fuel line is at fault or if it is just a connection. most commonly a piece of the line has deterieated and cracked and can be readily replaced with an OE part from a local parts house. a fuel line disconect for your vehicle can be gotten at the same parts place in most cases. Just ask the counter person what disconect it takes.

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.

SOURCE: Fuel Pump replacement

you have to remove the rear seats and roll back the carpet. if it is a seven seater you have to take out some ac ducts. then there are two access ports on each side of the floor. they are usually black and have four nuts holding them down you remove those and then you have access to the pump. you need some volvo special tools to remove it. volvo has recall 220 going right now and your fuel pump maybe covered under it. i would definitely talk to the dealership about it. because that would be no out of pocket cost to you

I need to know how to drop the fuel tank so i can change my fuel pump please


You don't need to drop the fuel tank in a 1995 940. There is an access panel in the trunk. Under the trunk liner there is a panel to the left of the backseat access. Unscrew the 4 screws there and you should see a screw-top cover. Remove it and you will have access to the fuel pump and floater.

Where is the Volvo s70 fuel pump located


The stock Bosch fuel pump is located in the fuel tank and can be accessed by removing the rear seat. Certain models have been recalled due to cracked flanges, permitting fuel to leak. If you smell gasoline inside or outside the vehicle or see wet fuel lines underneath the vehicle, contact your local Volvo dealer immediately. See below:

Fuel pump located


Probably in the fuel tank. You may have to drop the tank to gain access to the pump.

I have a 2001 S60. Have a gas leak comming for somewhere on top of the gas tank. It leaks down from the top.Is there an access panel inside the car or trunk so i might be able to get to the top of the tank...


Common problem with this series and model. Volvo extended the warranty for this fuel pump to 150K miles. Not a "recall" but the the warranty was one way around it for them. Contact your dealer and see if your specific model is covered. They will charge a diagnostic fee but if the problem is the pump, there will be no charge for parts and replacement. It is a $600+ dollar dealer repair otherwise.

Fuel pump died


this is not a driveway job as you need to lower the rear suspension clip to gain access to the fuel pump.it is in the tank on the passenger side.

2002 volvo s80 has leak at top of gas tank. can hear hissing sound. does the exhaust system need to be saw off to repair?


This should be repairable from the top.
Pull out the rear seat cushion and remove the two black round access covers to access the fuel pump covers. The seals for these covers tend to leak and if they are leaking, you will see it when the covers are off.

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.
