The purpose of the oil pump in a car is to circulate oil through the engine as a lubricant between moving parts. The Volvo S70 is a mid-size luxury sedan that was manufactured by Volvo from 1998 to 2000. It most often had a five-cylinder 2.4-liter engine with the oil pump attached to the front of the engine. The replacement of the oil pump on a Volvo S70 requires the removal of additional engine components to access the oil pump.
