    I have a problem with my Volvo 850 2.5 20V.
    When less than 20 liters remains in the gas tank and when I turn on
    the right (fastly), it seems that the engine goes badly (no gas
    I do not have the problem when turning on the left.
    It seems the fuel pump is located on the right in the gas tank.
    Is this behaviour correct?
    I have changed the fuel pump one month ago, perhaps something is

    Thank you for your help.

    Don't know much about the 850's but it sounds like perhaps the pickup pipe
    in the tank has a hole in it where it shouldn't have, allowing air to be
    draw in, causing a drop in fuel pressure, when you turn right. When you
    changed the pump did you check that any small O rings etc, were seated

  3. If your 850 has an in-tank pump, this behavior occurs when the hose
    falls off the in-tank pump or the in-tank pump fails.

    Hi Stephen,

    Yes, the pump is located within the tank. There is a hose from the top
    of the pump reaching the low part of the pump where is located the
    pump motor. This part seems correct.
    Is there an additional hose below the motor? Or another part that is

    Thank you,
