1989 Volvo 240 Wagon Runs, Stalls & won't start until rests

Hi,

Our old, reliable 1989 Volvo just started stalling on us. It starts up and runs fine, for a while, then it stalls and won't start unless it "rests" for a while. It doesn't appear to be electrical. The oil was a low.

Is this an air flow sensor issue? Is that a difficult part to find and fix myself? I have some repair experience (not an expert by any means).

It is most likely that you have a hole in your vacuum hoses (check your flame trap too) or your 02 sensor is bad. i would check both. good luck:)

1998 Volvo S70 stalls intermittently


Have tried getting quality gasoline at a reliable station? It sounds like water in your fuel system. Add a couple bottles of Iso-Heet fuel system dryer everytime you fill up the next few times, and that should cure it.

My Volvo 960 stalls while driving


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.
