My wife's 2007 v70 is becoming harder to start on some of the colder mornings. The dealer just replaced the Crank Position Sensor but the problem continues. Has anyone experienced this?

sounds like trouble with your cold start sensor , sending wrong information to your cold start injector,get an radiator flush pour that into your expansion bottle, run it for about 20 miles or more if you can put up with your heating being colder,open your windows ,now heating on full that will clean out the dirt in your radiator and your heating and will clean your sensor , drain it then ,put a 50/50 mix of anti freeze, then run the engine to heat up the anti freeze leave your expansion bottle cap off as you do this put your heating on full, that will take any air in the system ,then refit your cap.
