Usually the fuel level gage is the what causes that problem. Also do you have the metal gas tank or the plastic one? The metal tank has the level sender with the pump module but you can replace just the level sender by itself. If you have the plastic gas tank then you will have a level sender on the left and the fuel pump assembly with another level sender on it to the right. Depending on where the vehicle was sold, you may want to call Volvo to see if RECALL 220 applies to your vehicle? If it does, Volvo will inspect the fuel pump and replace it at no charge if you have the one that will most likely leak installed. To replace the pump the left side sender has to come out and you get 2 orings with that as well. If the pump has to be replaced just buy the left side sender and have them install that one on instead of the old one. Or you can pay for diagnostic to see which sender is faulty but will most likely cost you more in the long run? So call Volvo and give them your VIN# and see if the recall applies to you or take a peek at the gas tank and let me know if it is the metal one?
