200k miles, 1998 v70 T5 Manual tranny.


-Sometimes when I start the car the engine makes the attempt but does not quite starts. Then I have to try again. This happens at least once or twice a week. Most times I can get it started the second time, but today I had to try a 3rd time.

3 things to start a car: Fuel, Air, Spark.

Figure out which is messed up and you will find your answer.

Fuel: Fuel pump relay, fuel pump, fuel filter, etc.
Air: MAF, filter, etc.
Spark: Since you're a 98, plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, coil.

I'd guess failing ignition coil.

My money is on the Fuel Pump Relay. Mine just failed on the 2001 V70XC with 150,000 miles.
I had already changed the fuel filter which is also relatively easy.
Fuel Pump Relay is plug and play as well.
