I have a 2001 Volvo V70 XC. It has almost 200,000 miles on it. Recently I have been having trouble starting it in the afternoon after work. It starts fine in the morning, runs fine on the way to work. But after work, 8 hour day, it doesnt want to start. It is turning over, tries to start, and I have to pump the gas. It takes me about 10 minutes of coaxing it like this to finally get it started.

Time to have the fuel and ignition systems checked on the car.

I was thinking along the same lines. I have replaced the ignition coils. With no improvement. I will replace the fuel injectors tomorrow. Hopefully that will do something.
