This is actually very simple, if a bit messy.

Put a couple of rags under the sensor, remove the connector from it. Undo the cap on the Schrader valve. It's on the fuel rail on the opposite side of the FPR. Press the center with a rag over it and let it soak up the gas that comes out.

Then go back to the FPR and undo the T25 screw from it, then with gently pull it out while twisting it back and forth a little and let the rags soak up the mess under it.

Then stick the new one in, tighten the screw, replace the connector and turn on the ignition a couple of times to push fuel up to the rail and pressurize it, then start the car.

My sensor failed by 'hiccuping' once in a while. It would spike the pressure to 120 psi, then drop to 20 psi, then normalize at 43 psi again, all within a few seconds.

SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter in a Volvo S40 2005

Yes that is correct. The only filter is inside the fuel tank, and as I recall its a non exchangeable filter. It just gets replaced with the fuel pump when it goes bad

Hi Debra: I sugges to check this procedure...


Fig. 1: TBI fuel pressure regulator

  1. Remove the throttle body assembly from the vehicle as outlined in this section.
WARNING To prevent spring pressure release, hold the regulator housing against the throttle body while removing the mounting screws.
  1. Remove the three retaining screws that hold the pressure regulator to the fuel body.
  2. Disassemble the pressure regulator assembly. Note the location of the components for reassembly. Discard the gasket.
To install:
  1. Install a new gasket and the regulator assembly. Tighten the three retaining screws.
  2. Install the throttle body assembly as outlined in this section.

WARNING The pressure regulator diaphragm MUST be installed with the vent hole aligned with the vent holes in the throttle body and regulator housing!

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Tank pressure sensor? Tank pressure sensor is in the fuel pump it on tank, it shouldn't have a fuel pressure sensor, it will have a fuel pressure regulator on the return line off the fuel rail

    Front oxygen sensor code. Check the vacuum line to the fuel pressure regulator and make sure it is ok before you replace the sensor. Any vacuum leak can also cause the code.

    1995 volvo acts like its not getting fuel properly its an 850 wagon with the biggest motor put out that year 5 cylinder

    It sounds like it's either your fuel filter or your fuel injecters. If you change out your fuel filter don't forget to release the pressure in the fuel line before you take off the old filter. The pressure may be strong enough to knock the filter from your hands, & the spraying gas could harm you too. As for the fuel injectors the best stuff I found is Lucas brand injector cleaner. It's $5.99 at Auto Zone. pour a bottle in a full tank & take a 15min drive down the highway. You may see a light smoke coming from your tail pipe but that's what you want. It's the sludge & gung you don't want coming out.

    Volvo V70 xc AWD '98 - fuel filter change


    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.
