Customer Question
2002 Volvo xc70 turbo....
2002 Volvo xc70 turbo. recently upon start up 1 or 2 "dies," with varying rough idle. Once driving no issues at all. Today, several dies on cold start up and very very rough idle. Once driving 85% ok with the exception of rougher idle at stop. I understand that the fuel pressure sensor is a common issue? Mine isn't located on the fuel rail like many have described...

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
If it runs well when warmed up and this issue only occurs when cold I would have the engine coolant temp sensor checked to see if it is reading and sending correct engine coolant temp signals.I have seen faulty engine coolant temp sensors cause this fault before and had to replace the sensor for this fault here.
Thanks Pete

Great, it did pique my interest when at tempature it began to run near 100%. Next question, the temp sensor is located right above the thermostat housing correct? Since you've worked on this stuff extensively do you loosen the pwr. str. Pump to get at the bottom torx? If not what combo do you use? I was using a 1/4 universal joint with a small torx bit in a shallow socket but the angle was too great and it hit on the back of the pump. In addition are you using a crows foot for the sender? Just seems to be a fair amount of angle and the sender is pretty thin where you bite into it.... Thanks. Mike
