RepairPal Expert Overview:

When exposed to certain environmental conditions (hot climate and temperature cycling) over time and in combination with varying fuel quality, the fuel pump can develop cracks in the fuel pump flange. If cracks develop, a fuel smell and/or leak may be noted. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel pump as necessary to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is R220.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The fuel pressure sensor may at times transmit an incorrect signal to the engine control module. If the signal is outside of the pre-programmed allowable limits, the Check Engine Light can illuminate and a fault code will be stored. An engine misfire and/or engine stalling may occur. In certain traffic situations, this could cause an unsafe situation and possibly a crash. Dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensor to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is R181.
