My neighbor indicated that the problem was a bad gas. I am going to look at other vehicles this weekend and possibly get rid of it. My two questions: 1 Is there a list of things to replace for this kind of fuel economy? In fact, Volvo features a 2000 V70 in a Safety Brochure. I did check for codes and there was a code for the ambient air temp sensor, I have the fan and shroud out righnt now because I had to change the starter before I could even roll the engine over. It rolls over great and have 12v at the injectors, they are just not opening being grounded from the ecm I think there is a theft problem? They're also becoming the mainstream; by 2021 it's anticipated that most manufacturers will have. It chugs like it wants to start but will not fire up. Anyway I am up for the challenge.
Sorry for the short novel but I need this car running or pay big dollars to tow it from work!! Had the car since new and kept well maintained. Any input would help me out. Next you hook up and air line to the flush kit and adjust the fuel pressure on the canister to whatever spec the car has for fuel pressure I set it to 50psi. The cold also makes for crummy gas mileage. Replaced fuel relay and injector relay.
I ended up cutting the access hole to remove the pump. Be ready to replace the front control arms every 70k or so and eventually the heater core. Installed everything and now I have all kinds of pressure at the rail but still no start. The center passenger compartment stayed intact when impacted from the rear and shoved into the vehicle ahead. I have about 9 G gas in the tank and added entire bottle of gas treatment bottle the one that treats upto 32 G and then also filled up tank with Shell Supreme. Not that I have tried them but the Volvo safety features more than make up for it.
Bold and charming style that gets in you. Best yet, is the price! Just remember to get it from a reputable dealership or private seller and ask for warranty information. I am still working off my current tank but it is consistently going upto 14 now. The pump is turning on and working but not pumping anything. So next I decide to hook up a fuel flush machine we have it at work. I was running sea foam through the intake today and it took me a solid half hour to find a vacuum line that didn't seem absolutely melted in place. You better being going super slow or.
I compromise and use 89, and it works pretty well. I traded in my 2003 Town and Country for the Volvo which was a very good decision. The car had a warranty from the dealer for 300,000 miles. I recommend to anyone thinking of getting a V70 even if it has high mileage buy it. Ive also never owned a Turbo Wagon before. Research company Thatcham has revealed the 10 safest cars on the market. However, we're hovering around 17 or 18 mpg average and we do not believe that is optimal for a 2.
If you can find one of thease cars- Hang on to it! I've tried driving like a sunday driver and I can squeeze another couple of tenths of an mpg if I treat it like there was an egg between my foot and the gas pedal. Another question is what grade of gas are you using? I just want to know what are the symtoms of the theft system, I want to know the how it works. I can hear the pump run and sounds likes it's priming the fuel rail for the 3 seconds but I have no pressure at the valve at the end of the rail. I know there clean anyway. Enjoy driving these cars and don't have to worry about putting lots of km's on them.
He suggested to add gas treatment to the tank and try to clean out. It was a great deal. The cars were judged on a variety of criteria,. When car started, lots of black smoke came out with carbon particles. It seems to be in great shape and my local volvo guy gave it a clean bill of health on all the surface and obvious issues.
I can't seem to get more than 23 mpg combined this time of year, even running premium. The injectors are not work but have battery voltage. My Town and Country only had 60,000 miles and sometimes it would have trouble turning on and I bought new. Hey guys new to this site and owning volvo as well. I said just wait until you get inside. I do a good mix of city country road speeds, and a few stoplights and highway driving.
