Hello, I'm Chris.
I will do my best to answer your question fast and accurate using the info you have provided. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.

 

Is this occuring when the vehicle is hot at operating temp, or when you come out of the house and start the car for the first time and outside temp is hot?

it is hard to say exactly, the shop has not been able to recreate it.

we see a theme that when it is on a hot asphalt sunny day over 85 degrees it wont start.

usually when we come out to the car from the zoo, house, etc. when it has been sitting.

definately the latter part of your question is what is happening.

Volvo Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 8 years ago
I suggest you have the fuel pressure checked, fuel pumps which are fatiguing do not like heat since this causes them to lock up and inhibit them from spinning. The pump is in the tank and requires tank removal to replace. Next time it will not start a quick hook up of a fuel pressure gauge to check the pressure will tell you if its the pump or not.
