Check all fuses. Check the fuel injector fuse. Make sure the fuse and fuse holder are clean. Then pull the connector from the mass air flow sensor. If it is bad it will prevent the car from starting. The car may run rough without it but at least it will start. Let me know.

My car keeps stalling. I had my oil changed, oil filter and fuel filter, put carborater cleaner in the gas tank ...nothing has helped. Any ideas? I haven't had a tune up in 3+ years, could it just


It could need plugs, or something else. Plugs are designed to last 100,000 miles but no guarantee.
Often times stalling is caused by a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve. I would have a mechanic check the valve and also see if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer.

What is all needed for a tune up on a 1995 volvo 960


I usually service Ford family Brands and will try to assist you. Back in 1995 there was a change to longer service life sparkplugs and the elimination of Distributors with Crankshaft sensor firing of the plugs. It really depends on the Manufacturers' idea of when to replace sparkplugs by mileage and the various filters on the engine.

You can install plugs and filters anytime you want; just a matter of prematurely spending money on something you do not need. Air filters 12,000 miles, Sparkplugs 50,000 to 100,000 miles, Serpetine Fan Belt 40,000 to 45,000 miles, Fuel filter 25,000 to 45,000 miles.

Check with Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys for information about Manufacturers specs. Stay on an oil change interval based on your driving habits. Sometimes oil breaks down without higher miles and you need to change by date rather than by use. Clean oil for Winter starts, clean oil for Summer driving. Twice a year is adequate for low mileage. Watch your Antifreeze, it chemically changes after 3 years and loses corrosion inhibitors.

I hope at least some of my suggestions are useful to you.

Car lacks pickup strength??


if the pickup strength use to be better, most likely you need to tune up your car. that could mean to replace air filter and spark plugs. and being a 2002, you maybe close to the 100,000 miles, you should consider change the cables that goes to the spark plugs, they go bad around this time.
you can add some seafoam in your gas to help clean the injectors.
you can add some seafoam in the oil, a 100 miles ahead of your next oil change, you help remove sludge from the engine.
you can add some deepcreek thru the air conducts to help clean the crankcase.
