Anna Mendez Franklin, West Virginia - 1998 Volvo V70
Anna’s Volvo will only start if it’s facing downhill. The rest of the time, the engine cranks but it just won’t start. If she pulls the key out and tries a second time, it starts. Facing downhill, it always starts on the first try. Tom and Ray think it’s fuel-pump related-- it may not be making proper contact unless the car is at an angle, or may just be worn out. Suggest she contact a Volvo dealer. After call, Ray considers that it may be a faulty ignition switch.
