Question about Volvo 240
I have a Volvo 240DL 1985, and it runs great other than when I am either driving or idling, it doesn't matter, about every ten to fifteen minutes the car just stalls and all of the lights go on in the dash. I have to wait about ten seconds, and then it starts right back up and off i go again... until it stalls again. It has about 170,000 miles.
Thanks for your help.

try haviing your alternator checked advance auto parts can check it while its on the car and the can check the battery too. if thats not it it may stall due to a loose battery connection or a loose ground strap. if it stalls and everything turns of (electrical) it may be a connection or ground strap.

you might want to chk. the crank sensor and or cam sensor. sounds more to me that it could be fuel problem. chk. fuel pressure. pump could be on its way out. don't be fooled by hearing the pump running as they sound like they are pumping but there not, at least not enought pressure to keep it running. pressure should be around 50 p.s.i.

Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

I did not have any problem installing the water pump. It took about 2 hrs.
Just pay attention to how the old one is designed and comes off the block.
Tap out the tube from the water pump to the heater core and replace the gasket in place with a small amount of gasket sealer to hold it in place.
use a lever to raise the water pump to squeeze the larger O ring into place so you can start the first bolt and you'll be on your way to the finish line in no time.
This is not a job for your average home owner do it your selfer. a little more than basic machanics is sugested to do this one.
