Default Starting problem need help please 2010 v70 d3

Hello I need some help please with a constant problem I keep getting and I just canít get to the bottom of it.
I have a 2010 v70 d3 auto when itís running the car is fine but it has left me stranded 4 times now in 10 months and the rac have had to tow me home.
It was narrowed down by the rac guy as a crankshaft sensor so I fitted a new one and the car fired up.i let it run for 20 mins then turned it off and tried again and surprise surprise the car refused to start again.
The car will start up again once it has been sitting a few hours.
Has anybody had this problem as I just want to get to the cause of it so I can get it fixed.
Thankyou
Steve

When it cuts out, what do the electronics do? Are they still working normally?
Has anyone checked the fuel system?

Hi and thanks for reply. The first time this happened the first rac guy said you have no fuel pressure in the fuel rail. He took the plastic clip off the high pressure pump and we cranked the engine but no fuel came through.his thoughts were the inpump tank has failed. Anyway the next day I tried to start the car and it fired up,it has ran fine for 2 months but last Sunday it would not start at the supermarket so I rang up the rac guy he plugged the reader in and he said Iíve got no signal at the crank sensor.he towed me home and I fitted a new crank sensor it fired up but would not start again after 20 mins or so.
Oh and all electrics look fine except one headlight bulb which started to flicker

This car is really testing my patience

I think you might need someone nearby with Vida or a garage with diagnostics to measure the sensor readings of the fuel and other systems realtime when it's running and when it dies.
Sounds like it's running out of fuel, but it could be something else.

Usually you can find a member with Vida somewhere nearby, perhaps offer them some cups of tea for their time.

+1 In this day and age, all cars have become electronic devices and the first thing that you need to do if they malfunction is to plug in the appropriate OBD2 diagnostic test equipment. The DiCE connector cable which allows you to run and use Volvo's own VIDA testing software is available on the internet for less than the cost of a diagnostic session at a main dealer. It runs primarily under Windows 7 on a laptop and you can set it up on a virtual Windows 7 operating system on any laptop if you install something like Oracle VM VirtualBox which is free software. The advantage of using the Volvo software rather than a generic reader is that VIDA is immensely powerful and contains repair advice and spare part lists and also allows you to select options for your car which cannot be accessed from the car's display panel. It's what the Volvo dealer uses and allows you to know what he is going to tell you before you take the car in if you cannot do the work yourself. If you are posting on this forum, you are the sort of owner who should have a VIDA/DiCE. It's as necessary as a set of spanners!

My money would be on the main fuel pump in the fuel tank.

Sometimes referred to as a "lift pump", its job is to supply fuel to the high pressure fuel system. Sometimes the bearings stick. They sometimes get a bit noisy before failing completely.

If it starts running when you start up, it'll keep going, but if it decides to jam at start up then it'll do nothng. Sometimes a thump on the tank is enough to free it. If it sticks whilst you're driving there's often enough "suck" from the high pressure system to keep supplying fuel. Which is why it only shows itself as an issue at start up; and intermittently.

+1 for this. I once had a Jeep Cherokee 2.8 CRD with this issue. Would start cold, but occasionally stall on tickover or not start when warm. The in tank pump was to blame, but costly for a replacement. Started every time with start spray and once going, the high pressure pump would keep it running. Used it for a year like that. A can of start spray was less than a fiver and lasted 4-6 months.
