Having problems with your 1998 Volvo V70 ?

2002 Volvo V70 T5 - while driving, engine sputtered and stopped. Would not restart, but turns over when cranked, appears that it is not getting any fuel. If allowed to sit for a day, will restart and drive OK for about 2-3 days then problem will recoccur. Has had a new feul pump and snsing system installed as well as new fuel filters, when this rpoblem first occured about 5 weeks ago

If you look at your engine you will a silver fuel rail just at the front of the cylinder head. follow the rail to the air filter box side and you should see a blue cap on what looks like a schrader valve (if the cap is still there). unscrew the blue cap and carefully push in on the schrader valve, if the fuel system is ok there should be a good amount of fuel pressure and fuel will shoot out so be careful.
\015\012If there is no fuel that comes out and you've already replaced the pump and filter I don't have a whole lot for you. If there is fuel then I would call your Volvo dealer and see if your car has the extended warranty on the Electronic Throttle Module (ETM). Volvo extended the warranty for 10 yrs or 200,000 miles.
\015\012It could be a host of other things, but the ETM's are known to be prone to build up on the throttle blade and sometimes failure. There is also a very good software upgrade they can do to help the operation of the ETM's. I'm hoping your in the U.S.
\015\012There was a recall campaign 155 that was specifically for the ETM's
\015\012Hope this helps..
