May sound strange but sometimes, a fuel additive\booster can help this problem, if it is caused by corrosion of the in tank sensor and it is an intermittant problem.

Dont believe so as you have been driving it for a year and its only recently leaked so no link there.More likely the mechanic who fixed your car got it going again.Loose terminal, bad earth or some thing small enough to fix as a service/good will without charging you for it.

940 1991 volvo estate


Your problem is fuel gauge is hanging up on the fuel pump. The slide bar/fuel sender is located inside the fuel tank alongside the fuel pump. Today I removed my fuel tank and replaced the pick up strainer on my fuel pump and previously my fuel gauge didn't work, but all I needed to do was slightly bend the slide mechanism and my fuel reading read correctly on my gauge. Previous to that I showed no reading on the dash meter.
