Question about 1999 Volvo S80
Keeps cranking , for a long time before it starts; had major tune up dealer what a least 3,000 for diagnostic time..
Sounds like a possible fuel problem to me. There should be a schraeder valve somewhere on the fuel rail. After turning key to on, or cranking it for a bit, unscrew the cover cap and take a real small screw drive and punch the center valve (looks like a small tire air valve). It should spurt out pretty good so watch your eyes. If it's not building pressure, fuel will come out at a poor dribble or hardly come out at all which would indicate a bad fuel pump or extremely clogged fuel filter. Since it does crank eventually it sounds like the ignition system is working, so I'd lean toward researching the fuel issue first since it sounds like it may be taking a while for the pump to build enough pressure to pop the injectors.
