    I have a 98 Volvo V70 Wagon and on a cold start (i.e. - overnight),
    the car never starts on the first attempt. On the second attempt it
    starts and runs at slightly lower rpms than normal. After the car
    warms up it runs at the usual rpms.

    I changed, spark plugs, cap, rotor and air filter and no change in
    problem discussed above.

    Any ideas?

    Turbo /Non Turbo All Wheel Drive or Front Wheel Drive It sounds like the
    fuel pressure regulator or the fuel filter is causing your problem but
    without more Information it is rather hard to correctly help you correct
    your concern about your Volvo
