RepairPal Expert Overview
Due to loss of fuel pressure, the engine may hesitate or stall with the fuel level below the 1/4 mark. This condition increases the risk of a crash.
This should be considered a medium priority recall; this would change to high if the vehicle is operated with the fuel level below 1/4 as the engine could stall without warning. Please contact your Volvo dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
The software controlling the fuel pump may not be compatible with all fuel pumps and components, resulting in insufficient fuel transfer in the pump unit.

Dealers will upgrade the engine control module software to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on June 17, 2011. The Volvo recall number is R243.
