Question about 1998 Volvo V70
We have a '98 Volvo V70 XC AWD. It runs currently, but has no power. The fastest the car will go is maybe 50 mph and that takes roughly 2 miles to get her going that fast. Around town, we're lucky to see 35 mph on a flat stretch. Haven't heard the turbo kick on in a bit either. Any suggestions that we should look at are greatly greatly appreciated in keeping the ole girl running.
The 1st things you need to do is have the engine control module scanned for fault codes and the fuel pressure tested for proper specs.

The fuel filter can be located under the carpeted cargo storage floor at the rear of the wagon. Remove the four 10mm bolts, remove the cover. You will then see a removeable plate to the right just behind the rear passenger seat. Fuel filter can be seen through hole in hole. Replaced from underneath wagon. Be sure to make sure lines are fully inserted onto filter. Check for leaks. No smoking, extinguisher handy. Note arrow on filter for correct fuel flow.

If your car has the xenon headlights, it might be a faulty xenon ballast/regulator module. You car has daytime running lights so they are on at a low power setting all the time.

The most common problem is either the blower motor or the speed control resistor. Both items can be accessed by removing the glove box and panel below it.

the first thing you want to check is whether or not it has a heavy drag at the wheel caused by wrong pads, sticking caliper, improperly installed parts. Lift the car and try to turn the wheel. Just because they are certified does not mean they know everything. I'm certified too, but I also have experience with euros and the quality of parts that need to be used. If inferior quality parts are used it will cause this. It can create all kinds of problems and noises. Take it back until they get it right. Ask them what brand of parts they use. Let me know and if they give you any grief, contact me and I will advise accordingly.
