Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Volvo XC70 All Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles
1999 Volvo XC70 AWB wagon with 105,000 miles. Had the car since new and kept well maintained. Car was hard to start for a few days, then problem progressed to include very rough idle, check engine light came on, problem escalated to loss of power when attempting to accelerate, running roughly as if engine was flooded, miss-firing and stalling in traffic. Manage to limp the car into repair shop. Apparently problem is faulty fuel pump. Because of position of fuel pump repair will cost $1700. This sounds very high. I would like to know if symptoms described above match that expected for a faulty fuel pump and if the job is particularly difficult resulting in high repair cost. I am a handy guy but limited tools – is this something that I can do myself?
