ok I did once get the message "fuel filler cap loose" or something like that. So the code ECM 4308 should pertain to that..... I can do an active test on the evap system using my scanner. So I will replace fuel cap and then see if the code comes back. Would the bad cap cause the long cranking ??? I doubt it..... maybe the fuel pump relay more likely. Maybe they said the relay was changed but changed the wrong one!

one more thing, I put NGK spark plugs in the car. I have read numerous threads today that NGK are NO GOOD on Volvo. I've always bought Volvo plugs but this time in a pinch I bought plugs at advance auto and NGK were the only ones available...... Funny thing, the plugs I pulled out were NGKs also and seemed like newly replaced......... wonder if this has something to do with the problems..............

Evap and fuel cap unrelated to starting

That spark plug work could be. All the coils have a total of seven grounds and they all have to be clean amd tight. They are M6 bolts that both hold and ground each coil

It is possible to plug coil harness in incorrectly, make sure the looms lay naturally

Sometimes handling coils kills them too, but that’s esoterica

Ok, I will check the coil grounds. It is possible the people who had the car before me didn't put them all in.... I know which way the coils lay so that's not an issue but maybe the wiring to them...… is there a "plug" that disconnects the coil wiring so I can replace from another one or get new??? where does it plug in??
