  1. I can still drive it and I will experience hard start and may need to prime the pump before starting. Correct??
  2. Pressure went to zero after the car was shut off. I guess the pump is on it last leg?.
  3. So yesterday I started the car and ran fine for like 20 minutes. I took it out of the garage and died, so I put it back in. I did fuel test and seems like fuel pump is not keeping the pressure when car is turned off, but it is fine if car is running, I may install Fuel Line Check Valve on the fuel filter to keep the pressure on fuel rail. Car running Car not running.
  4. Little update: Car runs the same as before no improvement after changing below components and I still do not get any codes with VIDA. I did compression test one more time and results are a lot better. Believe prevues gage was bad. C1-155 C2-160 C3-160 C4-160 C5-160 New spark plugs NGK Spark Plug - NGK 6962 I did new PCV job with new blue box parts. Replaced serpentine belt and idler. Also replaced all vacuum lines with silicone ones and did cigar smoke test. I saw little smoke coming out of PTC nipple on the intake tube to the turbo. Also when I removed oil filler cap and dipstick smoke came out of there as well. I did not find any other leaks anywhere else, but I hear hissing noise around by intake manifold by cylinder one where banjo bolt is and PCV (no coolant leaks) swapped ETM with yellow label one and same symptoms. Can idled fine for 13 minutes and then rough idle and dies. Still have to do fuel pressure test. Went to rent fuel tester from AutoZone and it did not have right connectors. Running out of ideas. I'm ready to take it to Swedish Car Specialists - Chicagoland's Best Volvo Service and have them look at it.
  5. Well went to Auto zone and the one they rent did not have the correct adapter. Bummer. Will have to try another one. Also I ordered a new spark plugs and will swap them this weekend.
  6. Yes, I did replace with the one from junkyard and swapped with with a jumper cable and same symptoms. I will try to stop by Auto Zone and rent fuel pressure tester and report back.
  7. Work on PCV completed and vacuum replaced with silicon and same symptoms. Time to reach-out for help to Volvo special shop in Chicago area called Swedish Car Specialists.
  8. Thanks, I'm going to work on PCV and replace vacuum lines with silicon and see if it helps.
  9. Coolant level sits at MAX level. Here is a short video how it runs. https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipMM4QCjXzqPzEFCgHHY1IWy6VD-oFlN-LAGEnSHK5bW1H0ubJNOKeeOnCTRuBD4FQ?key=eGFyZS1oZmZfdG5qZlEtbW0zcWh4eUxmRllrOW9B
  10. @Zappo and @bmdubya1190 I did coil test per your recommendation and car ran worst after unplugging one coil at the time. I was told that PO replaced the spark plugs and coils 10k miles ago. One observation. after car wormed the temp gauge arrow stayed in the middle on the dashboard and the coolant almost reached to the top of the coolant tank . Is it normal ? Before replacing thermostat I drained 2 qts of coolant and when I re added the level stays above the MAX all the time Also when car was choking/puffing after worm up is saw smoke coming out of dipstick, but glove test passed. PCV? https://photos.app.goo.gl/XgrP7TsZghdPDh5b7
  11. No love, same symptoms. when MAF is disconnected. I will try to swap vacuum lines this weekend and go from there. Thanks for advise.
  12. Someone suggested to replace ECT. ECT and thermostat has been replaced and no luck same symptoms. Re-scanned for codes and again no codes. Did XeMODeX ETM test by their flow chart troubleshooting and all passed. Perhaps MAF could be the issue?
  13. Sorry, I've should add I will be working on replacing vacuum lines next week since it is 20yrs old car, fuel pressure seems ok after pressing little nipple on fuel rail, Fuel pump relay has been replaced with one from the junkyard and same symptoms.more update to come.
  14. Just got 1999 V70R with 212k and car starts/idles fine for the first 10-15 min. and then begins to stumble/idle rough. Runs fine above 2000 rpms. No codes in on VIDA scan, also It has new XeMODeX ETM installed by previous owner and it was programmed by the dealer. Looking for help and suggestions and idea how to tackle this problem.
