Re: Gas Door Sticking?

Sounds like the gas door actuator solenoid is failing. You could try a liberal dose of WD-40, but a warranty trip to the dealer may be needed.

Just happened on wife's (POS) Volvo XC-70, out of warranty. Solenoid and labor = $300. Go the dealer now.

have you tried lubing the gas door/hinge. Mine did a few times, lubed it up good and no issue since.
