It could be the problem with starter motor, give it to technician tell him to check starter, if problem it there then he will replace carbon brush and may one bearing ,and if require he will replace armature.
before showing to tech. please check both battery cable are connected properly and it is clean no corrosion , it can also cause starting problem.

SOURCE: 2000 s40 runs good but very hard to start

I ran into this a month ago. Check your battery. Volvo's and other euro cars are very picky about cranking voltage. have a friend put a volt meter across the battery while you are cranking. If it drops much below 11 volts, its probally not going to start. Have a shop load test the battery. Hopefully, this is the cheap fix to your problem. (my other customer had spent over $300 at the dealer)

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?
