Volvo V70 Air Pump Failure Due to Failed Air System Check Valve
Volvo V70 Problem
Average Mileage: 204,500 mi (184,000 mi - 225,000 mi)
We just bought a v70 in great shape with high mileage. Check engine light is on and we have checked the OBDii codes 4 times and had a local Volvo dealer also spead an hour checking things and this item has been ID'ed as the reason for the fault code/light. Dealer said pump & valve had both failed and needed to be replaced.
The Dealer cost for this was estimated to be $900 for the pump and 1.5 labor hours. Total cost was said to be over $1,200.
On the web I have found a new Volvo parts pump for $600 and an OEM pump for $400. On Ebay I found a rebuilt one for $140 (2 yr. warrenty) and a used one foe $132 (1 yr. warrenty).
We need this to work so it will pass annual state inspection. We plan to buy the re-built one and a new valve and have our local shop install it.
The V70 itself runs great now and I hope this pump does not effect the operation of the car.
