If you look at your engine you will a silver fuel rail just at the front of the cylinder head. follow the rail to the air filter box side and you should see a blue cap on what looks like a schrader valve (if the cap is still there). unscrew the blue cap and carefully push in on the schrader valve, if the fuel system is ok there should be a good amount of fuel pressure and fuel will shoot out so be careful.

If there is no fuel that comes out and you've already replaced the pump and filter I don't have a whole lot for you. If there is fuel then I would call your Volvo dealer and see if your car has the extended warranty on the Electronic Throttle Module (ETM). Volvo extended the warranty for 10 yrs or 200,000 miles.
It could be a host of other things, but the ETM's are known to be prone to build up on the throttle blade and sometimes failure. There is also a very good software upgrade they can do to help the operation of the ETM's. I'm hoping your in the U.S.

There was a recall campaign 155 that was specifically for the ETM's

Hope this helps..

My transmission slips a little from 2nd into 3rd gear. volvo said it could be the drive panel sensor. where do you put the power drive panel on a 2002 V70 T5

Drive panel sensor is the transmission control module. Inside the transmission on top of the valve body. Many things to check from "Could be" or "Is". Having codes read, It could be this or this. Having diagnostics done, This "Is" what is bad.

2001 volvo V70 T5 Problems

Had this same problem with a 2001 v70. Dealer needed to download new software to the computer. Took about 20 minutes and solved the problem. (The problem happened at 10 degrees below zero and I went in to see if they could tell me where the fuses for those circuits were located.)

Unfortunately the sofware re-load was not cheap.

1996 Volvo 850 wagon sputtered @ intersection smell of antifreeze

I would check that the auxilliary drive belt that runs the alternator and probably the water pump hasn't just broken, causing the engine to overheat and the battery to run flat. Just a suggestion, hope it helps.
