Question about 1991 Volvo 240
Morning, I found your problem...its going to be your fuel pump. Allow me to explain. When you start your car in the morning the car starts just fine. As your driving the fuel pump will eventually get hot. Therefore the circuit cuts off when you turn off for a while then you jump back in to restart the vehicle and it doesn't. The reason is when the fuel pump gets hot it shuts off due to circuit wire inside the pump.
You can almost say like overheating. Therefore your pump is going out. Replaced 7-10 of them in my time as a mechanic. Do yourself a big favor. Don't get a used on or Autozone. Pep boys or Napa will do just fine. Goodluck.
