    Just wanted to run this by the forum before I get into it. I have been
    having trouble turning over my 01 S40 in the morning. Sounds like the gas
    isn't getting to the engine it putters a bit and stalls. Anybody had this
    problem and give me a heads up on the problem. Fuel filter, fuel
    pump....?

    I had a similar issue with a Nissan a few years back. Solution was to
    pull the
    fuse for the fuel pump and try starting it. The car would start and
    run for a few seconds,
    just enough to drain all of the fuel out of the lines. Replace the
    fuse, hold the pedal to
    the floor and start the car. This model/year Nissan had the tendency
    to flood itself and
    this was the only way to clear it out.

    Hope it helps, let me know.

    Had a hard starting problem w/ my 01 S40 - it was the fuel pressure
    regulator.
