Hey guys, first time Volvo owner ever. Decided to go with the 4.4 s80.

While the previous owner has basically done oil changes and the odd unforeseen maintenance items I amd looking to get this car back into its former glory.

Is there a fuel filter that is accessible underneath the car? I've read somewhere that there is only an internal filter in the tank.

Differential service is on the list too
Coolant flush
Powersteering flush(whining)
Transmission flush
Spark plugs
Brake fluid replacement
Caliper service

Oh and maybe some free flowing mufflers with a catalytic converter removal too. At least the aft cat.

I bought one from Volvo, using a Volvo Part Number. It doesn't exist on the car. At least I still haven't found one.

Fuel filter is in gas tank with fuel pump. Located on the top of the tank. Have to lower exhaust and rear differential to get to it.

I believe it is a part of the pump.

Nope. Had my fuel pump replaced and the dealer had to explain to me the labor involved as it was more than the part. Spent 1500...

There is no external fuel filter and therefore no service interval. The tank has to be removes in order to access the pump.

These days, it doesn`t matter to manufacturers that you would have to remove a pump to service a filter. But yes no interval on this filter.

I've literally never fixed a problem that was caused by a clogged fuel filter, be it an external one or one on the pump.

Ya I'm getting a fuel pressure sensor fault which is giving me a engine light intermittently. Going to replace the sensor first and go from there.
