Check the PCV System for leaks. IPD has the system in stock and cheaper than Volvo. This is a very common problem.

If the engine light stays on, yes. Check the battery voltage with the engine running at a fast idle, the voltage should read 13.6V or more.

Engine mgt light stays on all the time, generally runs ok when warm but starts poorly and hunts on idle


You need to get it looked at, get a vehicle diagnostic check done, you can buy the fault code reader off ebay for about £30 then its yours for future cars. Could be one of the o2 sensors failed which is making your car run lumpy which was the problem with my T4.

Check intake gaskets. Pour warm soapy water on the gasket when it's running. If it bubbles like crazy, you have a leak. 2. Check timing. Shoot a timing light at the crank mark. If it jumps around a lot, your chain has jumped. #3. check cam. Remove valve covers, run the engine, and see if they are all raisng the valves the same. Put a piece of cardboard along the bottom, and fold it around a little, so it forms kind of a " half valve cover". That way you won't lose oil everywhere, and make a mess, or a fire.

1999 Volvo V70 Wagon Won't Start


It could be the Oxygen sensor.  As for how many there are or where they are located...I don't know but go to autozone.com and look at their free online repair manuals.  As for it not starting...could be a loose battery cable or bad starter or the connections on the starter.  Could also have a short in the wiring to the Oxygen sensor.

1999 Volvo S70 Stalls at stop signs and traffic lights


These models had a problem with the electronic control modules, and this is what controls the idle speed. Sometimes they just need to be cleaned, but sometimes they are defective. Volvo has extended the warranty on some of them to 10 years or 200,000 miles if it is found to be defective.
