Fuel pump has a crack, which replacement?

Post by s3bi » Sat Jan 18, 2020 10:47 pm

Hi,

my parent's 2005 V70 (2.4 103 kW gasoline engine) had some smell of gasoline coming out of the back of the car after driving. We found out that the fuel pump had a crack on its top. A friendly car mechanic tried to repair it but with no luck.

My dad ordered a new pump, which was compatible according to the eBay seller's listing, but it misses a feed-through connector the original pump housing has.

Now he has to return this one and order another one. He wants to buy them from a seller on eBay again (seems to be a Chinese part but the shipping is from Germany), because it's much cheaper than a original one at Skandix.
Does anyone know if these fuel pumps are any good and reliable? Or could one get a generic replacement from a quality third-party supplier which is a bit cheaper?

Buying parts like this on eBay is not a good strategy. Good parts are expensive , but that is how you get the “good”

There are about six different versions of the fuel pump. Did you contact a site like FCPEuro or IPD so that they could lead you to the right one? They just need the vin#.

It's selling for 150-200 on FCP depending on which one it is. Not really expensive, plus you get a lifetime warranty and customer support.

Edit: Looking at the second pump. It looks like it has a dummy connector with no pins. You'll get a check engine code immediately. Best stick to the two sites I mentioned.

I’m wondering how the pump runs with no electricity

It is a pain (in my opinion) to change these fuel pumps on the P2 because of the two sump tank has a fuel pickup snaked through from one side to the other. A good reason to buy only original Volvo pumps. The 850 may have the same arrangement - I don't know. Volvo had a recall on early P2 for cracks opening in the top of the plastic pump housing. Volvo would have made an improvement to the design, but other sources may still have the flaw. Also, FCP offers lifetime free replacement if you every have the problem again.

My 2004 S80 had the recall performed in 2016 for the fuel smell from a cracked pump. Not sure how recalls work in Germany, but my pump was replaced free of charge here in the States. Free is always better! Would not hurt to check your VIN # June

They don't list the 65 VIN# (engine code B5244S2) but only 61 (B5244S without the 2, probably very similar because it's the predecessor) and the 64.
My dad did the eBay compatibility check on eBay (item nr. 153460243072) and it showed that it would fit.

It's a bit strange though that it shows the P80 series for the V70 II which should be P26? Maybe an eBay problem and not even the seller's fault.
I usually do the part search on Skandix, which gives me the pump with the part number 30761742, FCPEuro gives me the same one for the similar 61 Vin car.

As you recommend FCP as well, the Euro mean that they sell parts for European cars, not that they have a warehouse in the EU as well, right? (So the shipping would take long and an import tax would be applied if I ordered there.)

Sorry I did not notice your location says Germany. FCP delivery to Germany may be slow and expensive. If you plan to do the change yourself, you will need some tool to unscrew the mounting flange ring. This is the black plastic ring outside the lighter plastic housing. The ring turns counterclockwise about 1 turn as I remember. Others have improvised tool (search MVS and the web), but I purchased a specialty tool because my ring was tight. It had sand in the area that was causing binding.

It still looks like you are being ripped off by having a false plug on top of the new pump, i don't see any metal pins for it.

since your vin is between 235000-425139 (Last 6 Digits of VIN), you're gonna need this
https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... h-30761742

As well as 2 o rings
https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... nk-9183708

And also, see if you can do it quick enough to return the special tool for it
https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... 0-cta-2493

FCPEuro is based in Milford,Connecticut USA and they do their homework on european cars, and they'll give you OE parts or parts they know have a very low chance of ending up as a return due to their lifetime replacement policy. Therefore, they are not interested in selling you crap. Since you're in Germany, you can use them as a reference to know what good products are out there for the car before you buy it at your local store or local websites.

It does seem like you might be able to avoid the hassle by calling the dealers for recall notice; otherwise, just confirm the part number with them.
