Volvo P2 R 90k Service Item Checklist

I bought a 2004 V70 R in 2010, and I needed to “baseline” it, get it back to Stage 0. I wanted it to drive like it came right out of the Ghent, Belgium factory like it did in July 2003. After the 90k service listed below, I gave her some Seafoam and new tires.

Fuel Pump Replacement DIY V70XC

My estimate is 1.5 hours to prep, cut and remove pump. Another 1-1.5 hours to re-install, close the opening, seal and re-install everything. You should be at about 3 hrs total as long as you don’t do like I did and install a pump with a broken wire. My total out of pocket was about $475 including the parts, tools, diagnostic fee and tank emptying.

DIY 1997 Volvo 850 Roll-Over Valve Hose Replacement

The past few times I’ve tried to fill up the gas tank the pump keeps shutting off after just a few seconds, no matter how slow you try to pump in the fuel. It took me a while to finally get the tank full. This is new behavior for this car. As part of the diagnosis, I decided to check out the roll over valve to make sure that it was allowing the vapor from the tank to pass through to the charcoal canister during fueling.
