My 1998 s70 volvo starts and runs for about 5 minutes, then it dies and will not restart for about 2 hours, or it cools off.I replaced fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel filter, air idle control valve, ignition coil and module. It still done the same thing, so I checked for fuel and fire, it had fuel and fire.I let the car cool down and restarted it and checked the vacum to the fuel pressure regulator while it was idling. It had no vacum to the fuel pressure regulator, so I checked all the vacum lines. The vacum lines were in great shape, no leaks. Is there some way I can bypass the vacum canister and run vacum straight to the fuel pressure regulator with out damaging the fuel pressure regulator, Please give me your thoughts and any other tips I might use to correct my problem

If you have spark and fuel, it should run. Tell me, have you checked to see if there is power to the fuel injectors? Also, is the spark a hot blue snapping spark?

The spark is hot and blue, it has power to the injectors, but its not getting enough fuel to run.

Okay, if you have spark, the injectors are getting power, but you don't have enough fuel pressure to run the engine, either you got a bad pump, there is a plugged fuel filter, the hoses were put on wrong at the tank, the fuel supply line is bad, or you have a regulator that is bad and not allowing fuel pressure to build.

I have no vacum to the fuel pressure regulator. The vacum lines are fine, no leaks, there is just no vacum. Why do I have no vacum?

If the vacuum hose doesn't have vacuum, there has to be a leak or it is disconnected. However, removing the vacuum supply to the regulator will increase the pressure. The problem has to be either a plugged fuel filter, bad pump (even though you replaced it), or the hoses are on wrong at the tank.

When it dies, do you then lose pressure? If so, have you checked the fuel pump relay?
