Question about 1989 Volvo 240
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).
The sock/filter in tank has got trash on it as it runs it pulls to a spot and closes off flow when it sets awhile it pushes off letting gas flow for a time the car will get weak /slugesh befor it dies out
spent $1500.00 to find out if it is a wagon take back seat remove screws that hold the board to the
floor lift out acess hole is on driver side on hunp take pumpout here not have to remove tank

I had a similar problem - more so on hot days. Faulty fuel pump relay up under dash on passenger side.
