My Volvo 960 stalls while driving

I have a 95 Volvo 960, it seems to stalls all the time. It will run great for a few days then start stalling again. When this happens it always seem to happen when you pull off from a stop light or just driving down the road. This is my first Volvo and I have never worked on these kinds of cars before, can anyone help?

    1996 Volvo 960 wagon starts hard and stumbles when asselerating form a stop. Could it be the oxygen sensor? I have not changed since I have owned the car and that is 100,000.

    Any Ideas?

It could be a number of things. Fuel Flow problem, or electrical apparatus heats up and works inefficiently. You could start from the cheaper, less strainous solutions, in this order: Change Fuel Filter, and clean Nozzles. Fuel Pump, Air Mass Meter.

You should start by checking the diagnostic trouble codes. Here are some directions!

These are fairly reliable, with few stalling issues, but they used to have problems with the coolant temperature sensors, and the intake manifold gasket leaks, both of which could cause your problem.

After you read the codes, or have it done for you, post the codes and I can direct you further.

Volvo 960 wagon stall


if it is lacking power and stalls at stops, it may be a bad fuel filter. when car is off, the dirt inside the filter drops to the bottom. but as soon as its started it rises up. that is what usually causes a car to stall. when stopped. if the car bogs down on hills and it was fine before, then its the fuel filter. there are many things to make a car stall at stops, but check the fuel filter first then go from there if problem still exists. and check all vacuum lines in engine compartment. there may be a leak. clean throttle body out if needed. good-day! check and or replace the Idle air control. (IAC) it may be sticking.

Car stalling out and bot starting after being driven for awhile.


mcdevito75 Here, It"s possible the ignition Module is going bad, no way to test and if so, one day the car will not start at all.----------It can also be a vapor loc, wher the fuel is evaporating before it reaches the cylinders. Best Bet, have your local shop check both these items.
