It's probably located in the gas tank. Surprise surprise! Mom's car started sputtering/cutting out. Checked the obvious fuel pump/filter assembly under the carriage. It worked fine. Changed the filter, added lots of glycol. Ran fine for about 2 weeks, then started the same problem again. Lo and behold--there are TWO fuel pumps. The Hayes and Chilton manuals have hit and miss accuracy. One pump on the undercarriage, the other under the back cushion on the wagon. We dropped the whole tank to knock the screw- in loose (supposed to use brass--no sparks!). A spanner wrench would have made it easier/could have done it without dropping the tank. Two fuel pumps? Crazy. BTW, hers was an '89 240DL.

The 1988 Volvo 244 utilized the Bosch LH 2.2 Jetronic fuel injection system. There are two fuel pumps; a lift pump to which you refer is mounted inside the gasoline tank. There is a second, high pressure pump under the car next to the gasoline filter. To remove the tank pump, you remove the "bung" which also has the fuel sender connected to it.

Locate fuel pump underneath vehicle right in front of left rear wheel, you will see the fuel filter connected in line with it.

Make sure you clean the area around the fuel pump and pump filter thoroughly before disconnecting. My question to you would be how did you know it was bad?
