1999 Volvo S70 Q&A
1999 Volvo S70 Question: I purchased a 1999 Volvo S70 T5 as my daughters first car.
Two owners, 206K miles, maintenance records up to 186K miles. I picked the car up with 1/8th tank of gas. I was told it ran fine on minimum grade fuel, so I filled it up. Drove it 44 miles home and parked it in the garage. I started it this morning and it would not stay running. Could it be the low grade gas? I am going to try one of the octane boosters /PEA by Chevron to see if the works. If not, fuel pump? - Sharon Elliott-Voght
Hi Sharon, It's hard to say why this is running the way it is, but it's definitely not from the grade of gas. Bad gas could cause this but I doubt that is an issue. I wouldn't try any fuel additives, they won't help either. Do you have any warning lights on? - Bret Bodas
